Cover all of Berlin's main sights, from the Berlin Wall to the site of Hitler's bunker. Visit the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Cathedral, Palace Square, and much more. Choose to take either a shorter or longer tour with a private guide to fit your schedule. Your guide’s superb story-telling skills will weave the themes of Prussian, Imperial, Nazi, Cold War and 21st-Century Berlin into a detailed narrative, stretching from Berlin’s swampy origins in medieval times, to the controversies over the design of the memorial, to the tragic story of the murdered Jews of Europe. Along the way, meet characters who have left their imprint on the city, including Albert Einstein, Marlene Dietrich, and JFK. Stand above the spot where Hitler took his life in April 1945, and see where daring escapes took place across the Berlin Wall before its momentous fall in 1989.

Then you will learn the history of the infamous Berlin Wall at the Checkpoint Charlie. Passing by the place where Hitler's Bunker formerly stood you will learn about the country's dark past.

It was so good. Jonathan K was amazing. The best tour guide ever. He was so knowledgable. There was almost nothing he didn’t know. We caught him out with one question about something in Hamburg, so not even relevant, and he even googled it for us! He was brilliant. He was very funny and kept us interested throughout. He told such good stories about the different areas. I was so engrossed in everything he had to say. His English was brilliant, better than mine! 10/10 would recommend!

An amazing tour! Nearly 4 hours in total but time flew as fast as our guide cycled! Our stops were fascinating and the history for each was impeccable and fascinating. A must for any visitor to Berlin!

It was a nice tour with a very informative tour guide. Bikes were good and comfortable. Route was great and got some super photos. Would definitely recommend tourists to do this tour.

Peter was a great guide from Liverpool and was very informative but in a lighthearted, fun way.Easy cycle,safe roads,lots of stops and a coffee/toilet break.

Our guide Rob was great. He explained us the history of the city beautifully. He was articulate and funny.
