We purchased a Berlin pass which included the opportunity to take a Fat Tire all day tour and we are very glad we did. Our tour guide was Neil (from Manchester but living in Berlin for over seven years) who was informative and entertaining all day. The tour takes about four and a half hours but you "only" cycle about 10k / 6miles during that time and Berlin is almost completely flat so it is a very easy cycle.

Initially it was slightly concerning to see the large number of people at the meeting place and think how is a group that size going to cycle round a city centre. However, sensibly Fat Tire split us into smaller groups - ours was a group of about 20 which was about the right size. Lunch was close to the zoo and on the edge of Tiergarten and was the one occasion where we had the chance for a long cycle in between breaks.

Neil helped us to understand some of the history of Berlin. It was fascinating to realise that most of what we were seeing had been built since the end of WW II but had been deliberately "aged" to look as though it had been there for hundreds of years.

We thoroughly recommend the tour and Neil

We had 'Randel' as our tour guide and he was more than ä-m-a-z-i-n-g! Witty, informative and captivating. Definitely advising this tour to everyone! Many thanks Fat Tyres!

This FAT TIRE thing is 'a must do' in Berlin, London and Barcelona, i have not tried Paris yet:( Keiran our guide in Berlin was my best guide ever, telling the history of city , explaining the architecture and art in city in such a simple and deep perception. I can't forget him telling about the holocoust of all diversities like homosexuals and disabled along with the Jews sitting on one of those huge blocks in the Holocoust Memorial and the way the architect of the monument left a space for everyone in evealuating his art. Love from Istanbul, Ozlem B.

Absolutely loved our two trips we've just done with Fat tire in Berlin. Previously done the Paris tour and loved that so knew it was going to be a fantastic trip out. Took my 16 year old daughter and she loved it too. Alex was really engaging and knowledgeable but at the same time good fun.

We booked this tour online because it had such good reviews on Tripadvisor. We met for the tour under the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz which was very easy to find. At first we were very worried because there was literally about a hundred people waiting for the tour to start and we thought it might be too packed. However we were split into smaller groups of about 15 or so. Our tour guide was Brie - who told us that to remember her name we need only think of the cheese. She was Canadian, very friendly, funny, and informative. The tour takes a more relaxed vibe to the history, not to full on or boring, and also focuses on the enjoyment of purely riding around the city. Berlin is an amazing city to ride around, and particularly on a beautiful day like we had (which is rare apparently). We did our tour on a Sunday which was good because there was hardly any traffic around. The lunch at the Biergarten at the end is great also (though make sure you have cash to pay for this as they do not take card and do not have an ATM). An excellent way to see the city. You can also keep the bike for the rest of the day free of charge after the tour as well which is great!
