“Inspiring tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Four of us had an excelent and interesting "Arm aber Sexy" (poor but sexy) tour lead by Christian, a native Eastgerman. This meant that he could relate to the time before the reunion of the two Germanies. We chose to have the tour in English and saw many places we would not have found on our own.
It is a very good idea to see Berlin and sourrounding areas by bike (we took our own bikes along). The city center is mostly for experienced bicylists - due to the traffic. But there are many signed routes e.g. to Potsdam, where you are lead on paths and less trafficed roads.

“Great guide [Rob] , and an amazing three and a half hours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Really great way to spend an afternoon. At first we thought three and a half hours would be long a gruelling, but it turned out to be much shorter than that and we were never bored. Our tour guide, Rob McCracken was engaging and enthusiastic and willing to answer any questions even after the tour was finished! Would recommend doing this tour on the first day of your visit to Berlin as it opens up other avenues for you to explore throughout the remainder of your trip either on your own or with one of the many interesting tours that are advertised.

Would definatly do again, thank you very much!

We toured with Sam, who was incredibly knowledgable and had a fantastic way of presenting the tour- cant recommend him enough! It was a really hot day and he even provided sunscreen.

“Free Berlin Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

I thought this tour was awesome and it was free (other than tipping the guide at the end which is cheaper than you would pay for a regular tour). Our guide Stephen was very knowledgable about the history of Berlin and took us to all of the main sites. I would definitely recommend it. It's a good way to meet other travelers especially if you are traveling solo.
