Loved the tour! Biking was a great way to explore the other side of Berlin and the city in general. The city doesn't have the best biking infra, so we have to battle it out with the cars in certain sections but for most part of the tour it was pretty smooth! Our guide showed us variety of neighborhoods and also spoke about the history of each neighborhood and how the major events like WW2, the cold war, Berlin wall shaped the city.

Covered so much ground and saw areas we would never have seen or learned about otherwise. Saw a real mix of nightlife, occupied housing, East German architecture, parks, street art, Bowie and Iggy Pop’s hangout…. A quick stop for a beer would have been very welcome after cycling past everyone chilling outside bars but can’t fault the tour. Anna gave us welcome advice about where to eat/drink in the area afterwards.

A fantastic way to see Berlin, especially with 2 teenagers. A very knowledgeable guide and many interesting stops along the way. It was also lovely to cycle through some beautiful parks and areas of the city. Would highly recommend!

we were very lucky to have Anna from Sweden to be our guide. very enthusiastic lady with lots of interesting things to tell. definitely recommend her!

Very nice trip. The guide was knowledgeable, good English and humorous and not solemn. We got a lot for our money and got to see a lot😀
