Because there is so much to see in Berlin and this city is so bike friendly, simply the best way to see this city is by bike. The tour takes advantage of the many bike paths the city offers - more than 95% of the tour is on bike paths and through parks. When you do ride on the streets, ride along the less-traveled roads. All insurance is included.
Ultra-hard seats? Razor-thin tires? Not on this tour! With new curvy beach cruisers these bikes are the pinnacles of city-biking comfort. With cushy seats, fat tires and handlebars that come up to meet you, it just doesn't get more relaxed. Of course these bikes perform as well. There are vice-like brakes to make sure you stop quickly. And with multiple gears, you can choose your level of pedal-pushing effort (all bikes also come with fun bells and unique names making these quite possibly the coolest bikes on the planet).
Ride rain or shine. The weather in Berlin can vary quickly, so you may want to bring a light jumper or rain jacket. The bikes come equipped with bike racks if you don't need to wear it. Also, a limited number of gloves and rain jackets are available, but again, it's better to be on the safe side and plan ahead.
Regardless if this is your first trip to Berlin of if you already feel like "ein Berliner", this is a great way to see the city and understand what makes Berlin so special. Here are just some of the many reasons why:
The tour was great and our guide Andrew awesome!
This bike tour was amazing: our guide was terrific and it all was so fun and informative. It rained a bit but that did not matter. We would highly recommend it.
I am so glad I went on this tour. Marc with a C! was a great guide and clearly knew what he was talking about, plus was a lot of fun. Covering Berlin by bike, specifically the Cold War sites, worked out really well. I'm sure we saw a lot more than if I had only taken the walking tour. I also believe that since this tour was specific to the Cold War, there were more people who were really interested in the subject matter than if it was just a general city tour. I LOVED it and would recommend a bike tour in Berlin to anyone who can ride one.
Our tour was amazing! We are still talking about it. Mark, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and as an added bonus was entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Berlin
Really well organized, loads of fun, the guide Marc was enthusiastic and full of great information. I took my 2 kids on the tour and they loved it, I'd recommend it as a great way to see Berlin and learn about the Cold War :
Excellent day tour - very informative and took us to places we would not have otherwise discovered - e.g. guard tower in the Death Strip. Child friendly with child bikes, though need to be proficient to cycel in wide cyle lanes on main roads. Great fun, and saw so much more than walking/train.

Andrew was an outstanding guide. He kept the tour group together well, was very well-versed on the subject and explained everything in outstanding detail. The restaurant he picked for lunch was also outstanding. The pace of the bike tour was good. I didn't know how much fun a bike tour could be. This beat a walking tour any day, even as cold as it was.
JEF IS AWESOME !
I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was seriously THE best. The location was easy to find. The bikes were easy to ride. I would go and do this again if i could :
This was a fantastic way to get to know Berlin. Patrick, the guide was awesome and kept up a banter of fun facts with historical information. We fully recommend this to anyone visiting Berlin especially for the first time as it gives you an overview of the city and what you want to explore on your own. Bikes were good to ride and we could have kept going such was the interest in the city sights.
Keen to do Paris with these guys at some stage.
Highly recommended!! Safe, friendly, informative, entertaining and intimate tours of Berlin's well or lesser known landmarks. A must when visiting Berlin. Looking forward to jumping on another bike tour in London, Paris or Barcelona. Thanks guys and a special thanks to our tour guide, Alex!
