Brilliant bike tour - covered all the main attractions and the history of each was explained by the very knowledgeable guide. Pace of the tour was good - nothing too strenuous. If you go in autumn / winter wrap up well.
A brilliant experience, high recommended , lots of information given in a very engaging way, by Merren..
Absolutely brilliant. Really enjoyable and informative at the same time.
Great tour with great tour guide. I'm a beginner cyclist but they structure the group so that the riders with 'room for improvement' don't fall behind. The length is perfect and you get to see so much of Berlin that it in hindsight, it feels like one of the best ways to see the city. A stop for lunch too is great. Highly recommended.
Great guide. Lots of sights to see. Easy for any level of fitness.
Had a great tour and it was quite informative as well!. Leila's a good guide, she also recommended some great restaurants.
The bike tour is well worth it. Would advise anyone thinking about doing it to get on the bike and just do it!!!! The guide we had was a lovely girl, sorry I have forgotten her name. The only one thing that I was disappointed in was the place we stopped for lunch. I would have been happy with a sandwich or something like that but it was only meals they sold, had to get one as I was very hungry. All the cycling was hard and I worked up at appetite!!!!! Go out and just do it!!!!
Enjoyed every minute of it. Tour guide Merren was knowledgable and entertaining. Bikes excellent. Learned a lot.

Our guide Simon was great. He was very knowledgeable about all the sights we visited. He made sure everyone on the tour was comfortable riding the bikes in the traffic. And having lunch and a beer in the beer garden was a great way to get know the people in our group
This really was an awesome tour. We were a little worried as to how tired we would be - as we were only flying in the same morning from New York - but it was worth every ounce of energy! Our two guides, Lucy and Claudia were both great, fun, energetic, and informative. You saw everything possible and received as much info on the sites as you cycled around, stopping for an hours rest in a Beer Garden with food very reasonably priced and a great atmosphere. It was especially nice to see some of the sights at sunset, or even at night time, beautifully lit. Would 100 recommend to anyone wanting to get an overview of Berlin. I'll certainly be back for more!
Great way to get a first look at Berlin. If you're not familiar with the city and want a great introduction and hints on where you might want to go back to then this is it. Kevin, our guide at Fat Tire Bike Tours, was interesting, friendly and very helpful. Easy bike riding - generally flat terrain and only short sections between stops, Lots of stops and chances to take photos. Lunch venue in the Tiergarten was perfect and a good chance to mix with others on the tour.
Excellent tour. Didn't know the biking could be so much fun in a city. The guide was excellent. Gave us a good history lesson.
A month before we came, I booked a half day bicycle tour of the main historical sights of central Berlin with a company called Fat Tire Bike Tours. I booked following the recommendations on Trip Advisor and am so pleased I did. It was excellent value for money and very interesting and our guide, Alex, a Canadian ex-pat, proved to be knowledgeable, funny and patient. His interpersonal skills and memory are impressive, ensuring that he learns peoples names and has a conversation with each person or group individually during the course of the tour to get to know a little about them.
We started in Alexanderplatz and made our way to the Book Burning Memorial, Humboldt University, Gendarmenmarkt, Checkpoint Charlie, the last largest remaining segment of the Wall, a former wall watch tower, the site of Hitlers Bunker, the Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial Memorial to the Murdered European Jews, Victory Column, Tiergarten, a beer garden for lunch Schleusenkrug, back to the Reichstag and finally, Museum Island. Each of these places enjoyed a stop, a brief history lesson from Alex and photo opportunities though he pointed out many other sights along the way.
What a wonderful way to see Berlin on a sunny day mixing with other travellers, some gentle exercise and discovering some of Berlins history. We were so impressed with it, that we signed up for a bicycle tour of Potsdam two days later.
Awesome tour with Tom. Berlin is mercifully flat so it is not arduous at all. I learned a TON of history on this tour.
Awesome tour. So much fun. Loved Jeff our guide, very personable, A
