Great informative guide, wrap up warm if you do this tour in winter as stationary quite a bit of time and can get very cold, Berlin is very flat so no effort needed on bike, very easy.

The guide is very friendly, empathetic and always has interesting facts about each place visited.

Demanding ride. For children because of the length (3.5 hours) not necessarily suitable.

Well worth doing informative friendly and a great way to know about the city.

We really enjoyed our trip, Dean was a great guide, thank you!
