The bike tour was amazing! Very personalized, our guide Johan is a great connoisseur of history, very friendly and explained many points of the journey to such an extent that it allows you to know and feel every detail of what was Berlin and the Jews at the time of the war! Highly recommended!

You have to say that it was difficult to find at the beginning, but luckily we were looked for. Our guide Johann is a very friendly and educated historian who is helpful and committed to all questions and concerns. We had fun and learned a lot and there was a great restaurant tip for our special requests. Thanks a lot!

Wir haben die Tour mit dem (geliehenen) Fahrrad im September 2021 gemacht und waren sehr positiv beeindruckt. Unser Guide (Johann) hat die Inhalte an den einzelnen Haltepunkten mit großem Hintergrundwissen und darüber hinaus auch noch mit vielen kleinen Geschichten aus der Geschichte rübergebracht. Sehr informativ und dazu auch noch sehr sympathisch! Insofern können wir diese Tour mit diesem Guide absolut und vorbehaltlos weiterempfehlen!
