    Wonderful and personal way to learn about the history of the wall. Skip the group and opt for this private tour--Charlotte's depth of knowledge was excellent and I appreciated how flexible she was about requested tour stops, speed for the kids, and of course, the snack stop!

    Die Fahrradtour was Teil eines Events mit einer Gruppe von mehr als 60 Personen und es war perfekt! Angefangen beim ersten Kontakt über die Organisation bis hin zur Durchführung hat alles bestens funktioniert. Ein Gutschein zur Abholung der Fahrräder wurde bereitgestellt. Die Gruppe anschliessend in drei kleinere Gruppen aufgeteilt und in drei Stunden wurden verschiedene Punkte angefahren. Die Guides hatten viele wertvolle und spannende Informationen parat und alle Teilnehmer hatten die Gelegenheit, Orte in Berlin zu sehen, welche sie vorher noch nicht kannten. Das Feedback der Teilnehmer war durchweg positiv! Vielen Dank

    We were 9 guys on a stag do looking to add a bit of culture and fresh air to our trip, and a bike tour with Axel was an excellent way to achieve this. Over the 4 hours we managed to see many of Berlins most famous sights, made even more engaging with Axel's excellent knowledge of history/architecture. He was friendly, happy to tailor it to our needs and could answer any questions we have. All the guys said how pleased they were with the amount of the city we got to experience and wished we'd done it on previous trips. I'd definitely be recommending him to anyone I know looking for a similar experience next time they're in Berlin.
