Our guide Anna from Sweden gave both personal perspectives and experiences, mixed with her research on the various street art crews. A great way to experience hidden parts of Berlin.

I would highly recommend Berlin on Bike to experience the city. Our guide, Anna (from Sweden) gave us a brilliant tour of Alternative Berlin and brought particular insight to the tour through her own experiences of Berlin's subculture. Anna's friendly nature and great knowledge of the city made the tour so interesting and enjoyable. There were others that took the tour the same afternoon from England, Australia, Mexico, Netherlands, France and Canada so it was an added bonus to meet people from so many different countries visiting Berlin. The bikes provided were perfect for the flat terrain of the city and there was so much to see between the trendy cafes, mesmerising graffiti, hotspots in pop culture and historical landmarks. Something for everyone!

I believe we had a higher expectation for this experience. There was alot of biking on main roads which can be intimidating and not so off the beat and path. The group often got split up and this venue should consider 15 too many. For some biking is a leisure activity and may not move at the pace of a daily cyclist. Our guide was not very animated so we were not impressed overall. We did get some awesome pics but time spent at these places were very minimal.

The tour was amazing! We got to see so many interesting spots with the best guide Anna. She was very professional and super funny.

Katy was enthusiastic and informative. We cycled through three districts stopping at points of interest. Definitely worth doing if you enjoy cycling and want to see Berliner life outside of the central tourist attractions.

4 hours trip with great comments and explanations Small group (8 people) The guide was very passionate and expert

A highly recomended tour! It gave new perspectives and knowledge about the once divided city and its development growing back together as one. Our local guide, Jasper, shared his knowledge, wisdom and humour all the way while he included all the individuals in the group. We were really taken care of and Jasper is truly one of a kind. 3,5 hours went by too fast. Our bonus was collected in the construction work on the S-bahn the same evening, a new rental bike - and another 40 minutes on a bike heading back to the apartement

3 and a half hours spent exploring parts of Berlin I would never have seen otherwise. Our guide Anna was fantastic. She told stories of her experience growing up in Berlin, infused the tour with anecdotes and pointed out local hangouts that we went back later to explore after the tour. I would highly recommend taking this tour early during your stay in Berlin so you can go back to explore the local parks, galleries and suburbs with amazing eateries in the following days.

This tour was amazing. We booked a custom tour and identified those places we wanted to have included (having been to Berlin before). Our guide Katie was brilliant. Covered all the places and a couple of surprise bonus places as well as allowing us all the time we wanted to get in photos etc. Highly recommend. 10/10

The guide was very knowledge of local neighborhoods and alternative art and other cultures. Definitely got to see parts of the city that we would not have seen on a standard guided tour. The guides passion for the topics came through. If you enjoy street art, the art scene in general, quirky neighborhood bars and clubs, neighborhoods that include squatter encampments, stories of culture clashes, "untold" stories of the Wall, and a ride through "regular" neighborhoods, this is for you.
