    No - the bike is included with the bike tour, so just bring yourself and we will take care of the rest!

  • Expand/Collapse Do we stop for lunch?

    We will not stop for lunch on this tour.  Depending on the day, we may have time for a short snack break, but generally guests eat before or after the tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for kids?

    Our tours are great options for families and kids are very welcome.  We have several types of kids’ bikes, seats, and helmets to make sure everyone of all sizes is comfortable on tour.  Being a slightly shorter tour, this is a great option for families!

  • Expand/Collapse What if I haven’t ridden a bike in a while?

    Don’t worry, it’s just like riding a bike!  Our tours move at a very comfortable pace so don’t worry if you are a bit rusty.  If you are worried about being comfortable on the bike, feel free to stop by the shop a bit early and you can take a few practice laps.

  • Expand/Collapse What happens if it rains?

    The tour will still run in case of rain.  We try our best to take cover but sometimes we are exposed to the elements.  We have pocket-sized rain ponchos that we provide for free to all of our private tour guests. 

  • Expand/Collapse Do we go inside the museums and monuments?

    We cannot enter the monuments because German Law restricts museum guides to their authorized officials. Plus, some people would want to spend only ten minutes in the museum while others would prefer 3 hours.

    Our private tour guests benefit from free bike rentals for the remainder of the day following the tour.  Our staff will be happy to show you exactly how to go back to any sites you would like to explore further or visit the interior.

    Of course!  In fact, our tours make great compliments for each other.  If you want to include a specific site on this tour that's not mentioned in the description, or if you're curious about package deals, just reach out to us at [email protected]
