We have two adults and three kids in our group. Daniel was an awesome tour guide. He took us to all of the important places. This bike tour was the best. Daniel took us to places more than he was supposed to and he taught us a lot of history. I understood a lot more than before I came to Berlin. It was a 3 hour tour but, he biked with us for about 3:30 hours which I find very generous and nice of him. He explained a lot of the famous memorials eventhough it wasnt part of the tour. Daniel is very educated man and he shared a lot of his education with us. Thank you

Our guide, Bjorn, was excellent! You could tell he really loved his job. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. He was able to recommend places for us and gave us some advice for the rest of our trip. This tour was a great way to learn about the history of the Berlin Wall and a different way to see the city. Great exercise too!

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We really enjoyed it. Our group ranged from age 11-69 and we all enjoyed it. We saw so much of the city, and learned a lot! Christian was a great guide. Highly recommended.
