    I had a great time on this tour. It had the right balance of history, interesting sites, and hot spots to save for later. For a fit guy in his mid 30s, the tour was not very strenuous, which was really nice because I still had some energy after the tour to continue exploring. The tour guide, Michael was very knowledgeable about the area and history and chatting with him was very enjoyable. Recommended!

    Starting from the Hauptbahnhof (Central Train Station), this half-day bicycle tour is a great way to see the city of Munich. Guides are local Munich residents who know the best routes, the best stories, and the best spots to stop for a quick drink. The first stop of the tour is the Neoclassical square, Königsplatz, often called Munich's Acropolis. A few minutes away is the impressive Odeonsplatz. Both are the legacy of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, a 19th-century monarch who wanted to make a grand city for kings. He actually succeeded in making Munich a great city for cyclists. From Odeonsplatz, you'll cycle through the picturesque royal gardens to the Englischer Garten, Europe's largest city park, where nudity happens to be legal. Then the tour stops at the famous Chinese Tower beer garden for refreshments. Cruise along the lovely banks of the river Isar, which leads back into the heart ...

With this bike tour, you get to explore more areas than you would be able to on foot. Would definitely recommend!

The Segway tour combined with the sights was really good. You get on quickly, you see a lot! A small disadvantage is that you didn't hear the guide during the Segway ride. Otherwise all good…
