You should definitely do it. Anyone who knows normal Berlin will find something new on this tour. Especially with the bike you can move quickly between different stops without getting into a time stress. Our guide David was very experienced and always told new anecdotes from and about Berlin without looking at the clock.

It was a wonderful evening. Our guide was super nice, funny and could tell us a lot about Berlin. It is often difficult to understand, so a headset for the guide with a loudspeaker in the passenger compartment would be an idea, then it would be perfect.

Berlin must be explored on a bike, we have done several bike tours with these guys and it's a big recommend. Any tour is a great experience.

Vincent was a great guide; it was entertaining and interesting. (Top secret tour) Thanks again
