The tour guide that I had was a resident of Berlin. I missed the mitte tour but they were able to re-arrange another tour for the Berlin wall. So this comment might be worth reading if you were interested in this tour as well. She was great at explaining the history of the wall and the ride down was amazing! You get more out of the tour if you ask her about her personal experience of living in East Germany since we won't really know how it was like then. My one issue was that she wasn't able to talk above the noise the city makes so it was difficult to hear when we stop. Hopefully she can talk louder to groups this time around.

Fantastic bike tour of Berlin, our guide was brilliant, bikes were great. There were only 3 of us booked for our particular slot (a Sunday in Feb) so it felt more like a private tour which was a bonus. It over-ran by a couple of hours but we came away from it feeling like we got way more than we paid for so definitely nothing to complain about!

This is one of the best things I have ever done. Our tour guide was so lovely and friendly, making sure at all times everyone was okay on their bikes ~ we even stopped for coffee because it was cold and he said we should warm up! Really great guy, and extremely knowledgable about Berlin, also showing us more interesting niche sights and even taking us somewhere in particular if we wanted to. It was very personal and you knew he really cared. I can not more highly recommend this!! I only give 4 stars for punctuality because we finished the tour later than expected. However, this was not a bad thing in my view and gave us more value for money! 10/10 I'll probably be booking another one soon....

Our guide was very knowledgeable, and definitely went beyond the call of duty during our tour, taking us to lots of very interesting places and extending our tour time to 4 hours!

This tour is a colorful mix of history and present, with stories of real life experience and rumors. This tour is a must for all Berlin fans and newcomers to this great city.
Our 'Berlin Mitte Tour' starts at the historic place, Bornholmer Street, where East and West-Berliners hugged on the day the Berlin Wall collapsed. We cycle on bike paths and less traveled secondary roads to the Brandenburg Gate and back.
This tour will lead us to the historic and eventful places of old and new Berlin. First stop is the Oranienburger Street, the new Berlin party mile. Passing the former 'Kaiserliches Postfuhramt' ( Headquarters of the Prussian Post) along the 'New Synagoge', nearly destroyed during the early Nazi times. Next stop is the 'Friedrichstadt Palast' , with the worlds biggest show stage and its exciting mix of traditional and modern variety shows for young and old.
Across the 'Hauptbahnhof' (Central train station) is Germany's biggest hospital, which was built as an army hospital and dealt with the plague in the late 17th century. Not far away, we find the Reichstag and the government buildings with the German Chancellery. Finally, we see the status symbol of Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate.
On our way back we will pass many historic and modern places and buildings such as The Holocaust Memorial, Potsdam Place, Gendarmen Market, one of the most beautiful places in europe and the Bebel Place, where in 1933 the infamous Nazi book burning took place.
Cycling through the original center of the city, the Nikolai quarters, we pass the Red City Hall, the Neptune Fountain, the 368 m high TV - Tower and the Marien Church as well as the Alexander Place. Our last stop is the World Time Clock 'the Berlin meeting point'. From here we bike through the districts of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg back to our starting point.
At the end of this tour you have seen many Berlin symbols and heard a lot about the history and daily life of this city. The 'Berlin Mitte tour' with our 'Berlin Wall Tour' is the most exciting tour for our first time Berlin visitors and guests.

Vielen Dank für die tolle Bewertung. Schön, dass die Tour so zu empfehlen ist. Ja, besonders für Leute, die das erste Mal in Berlin sind, sind sowohl Mitte als auch Mauertour, ob zu Fuß oder mit dem Rad und je nachdem, ob das Interesse in fast 800 jähriger oder größtenteils nur 60 jähriger Geschichte liegt, die geeignetsten 'Touren. Mit besten Grüßen von Alex & dem BBT-Team aus Berlin
