Are reservations required for this tour?

Reservations are required for all private tours.  Due to the nature of guide scheduling for private tours, cancellations or rescheduling requests must be done at least 7 days in advance of the activity start time to be eligible for a full refund. Reschedulings are subject to availability.

What do I need to bring with me on tour?

Be sure to bring your camera and bring an extra layer of clothing in case it gets chilly during the tour. There are luggage racks on our bikes so you can easily carry some small items with you.

Do we stop for lunch?

Yes, we will make a stop for lunch during the tour.  Please remember that the cost of food is not included in the tour price, so make sure to have some cash with you.

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 for sale in our shop and we highly recommend that you purchase one before tour.  If you don’t use it, we will buy it back from you- it’s a bit of a rain insurance policy!

Do we go inside the museums and monuments?

There are over 20 palaces in Potsdam, plenty of parks and gardens, and endless history!  We privilege cycling on this tour, and as such, we do not include entry into any one palace.  The palaces are often non air-conditioned, small, and often have significant lines.  Of course if you have your heart set on seeing the inside of a particular palace, let us know in the comments of your booking, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request!

Can I combine this tour with other tours?

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]
