Full description
The comprehensive all-in-one city bike tour of Berlin covers all the main landmarks in just 6.5 hours, with stops every few hundred meters to discuss the sights. Let native English-speaking guides provide a fascinating commentary about the city’s troubled history and fantastic future.

Go to the Berlin Wall, and wander through Checkpoint Charlie. Then stand in the death strip under a watchtower, and learn what led to the Wall’s fall, and how Berlin is dealing with its past. Stand on top of Hitler’s bunker, and the site of the Nazis' infamous book-burning. See the Reichstag, and grasp how its fateful burning led to Hitler’s rise to power.

Cross through Tiergarten Park and stop at a delightful beer garden for lunch. Soak up the scenery as you explore the sprawling new government quarter. And learn how the mighty Prussians molded Berlin into a European power, as you ride through the Brandenburg Gate, over Museum Island, and across the Gendarmenmarkt.

Short on time? join a 3-hour version of the tour and visit some of the best sites in Berlin in just a half-day such as Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall, examples of Nazi Architecture, the Site of Hitler's bunker and Reichstag. Alternatively, upgrade your experience and enjoy a private tour for up to 3 hours where you can ride at your own pace with a personal tour guide - just for you and your group.

The tour was a great way to get familiar with the city, and see a lot of the historical spots in a short time. Even though the tour was pretty quick I didn't feel rushed in the least and still got a lot of information and tips on places I'd like to spend more time. the tour guide, Nat, was super and very versed in the history of the city! 10/10 would recommend!

Absolutely loved my tour with Tom! He kept things entertaining but was also very well versed in the subject manor! He helped answer our questions and even helped me plan a few other stops for the following days on my trip to Berlin. I would highly suggest this trip! Ps.
