A worthwhile half-day tour from Berlin. The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and ensured that the group stayed together throughout the bike ride. We stopped at various spots where the guide provided terrific insights into the history of the city as well as behind the scenes stories at the main attractions. Highly recommended, especially if you're interested in anything related to WWII.

Absolutely loved it....even with a morning drizzle. Our guide, Alicia, was excellent. She had so much history to share...we all learned a lot. I would recommend this tour to anyone who can ride a bike. It really was a wonderful way to take a tour and spend the day.

The Potsdam Tour was led by a helpful and knowledgeable guide. We were able to go inside the palace where Stalin, Truman , and Churchill met. The management of the bicycles and train transportation as well as restaurant details were all taken care of by the guide.
The sidewalks and streets were crowded at times.

This was fun and a wonderful way to see Potsdam. Our guide was great and we had a tasty lunch at a local German restaurant. The palaces were grand and the grounds were spectacular. The historical significance of Potsdam was also interesting to learn.
