I absolutely recommend this discovery ride on an electric scooter, the guides are super friendly, they speak several languages without problems. Berlin lends itself completely to this activity and you will see monuments that you will not see from this angle with another means of transport. I recommend.

An exciting guided tour with many stories surrounding it. Our guide answered many questions in a friendly, competent and, if appropriate, child-friendly way. It was a lot of fun. The 2 hours passed very quickly!

We did the tour as a family of 7 adults. It was very informative and fun. However, 2 adults next to the driver are quite cramped. But it was fine for 2 hours. Would recommend for 6 adults only.

This was a fantastic tour. The guide and five other guests were just perfect. What a great way to learn and see Berlin

Our tour guide Carlo explained the historical sights around the Berlin Wall to us very nicely and in detail.
