FAQ

You have questions about our tours? Find the answers here.
Why should you choose URBAN BIKE TOURS?

We love Berlin and enjoy showing you our city in its many different ways. We guide you, in small groups, to the tourist attractions, interesting squares and also to the places steeped in history. We have picnics in the countryside, and simply have fun and a good time together.
Our motto is: “by friends, for friends”.

Where do we start?

You can find a map of the tour starting points here: Starting Point

Can we start somewhere else?

Yes – we can gladly change the starting point of the tour, according to prior arrangement, to an alternative place of your choice. Often your hotel will have its own bikes to hire, then we will collect you directly from there.

When do we begin?

For our daily tours we have set starting points for each one. We will happily use an alternative starting point, according to prior arrangement.

Do I need my own bike?

No – you can rent a bike from us. The price for a hire bike is 5€ per tour.

How big are the groups?

We value small groups of up to 8 people. Our goal – relaxed journeys with the most amount of fun for all participants on our daily tours.

Regardless of whether you would like a tour as a couple or a complete team – the number of participants does not matter for our individual tours.

How tiring are the tours?

We cycle at a comfortable and relaxing pace. Our tours are between 9 and 25km long and last between 2 and 5 hours. There is something for everyone. You should already be a bit fit. However, there are enough stops and plenty of time for breaks.

Are there participant restrictions?

Yes – on our daily tours we have a minimum number of 4 people.

How do I pay?

The payment is usually done by bank transfer or cash before the start of the tour.

How can I book a tour?

You can view every tour’s details or book directly under: Bike Tour Reservation
Or simply send us an email or a WhatsApp message.

What are individual / private tours?

We will happily create a tour according to your wishes. Regardless of how many of you there are, what you would like to see and how long the tour should last – we can give you an appropriate quote. Please send us your request: Contact form

Do you also offer tours for school classes, tour groups etc.?

Yes – we do tours that are especially suitable for school classes (for example, West-Berlin bike tour with a focus on politics or art), the Mauertour (tour of the Berlin Wall) or East Berlin – the capital of the GDR.

We essentially offer tours for all group sizes. We will also happily create a tour according to your wishes. Regardless of how many of you there are, what you would like to see and how long the tour should last – we can give you an appropriate quote. Please send us your request: Contact form

What will happen if there’s bad weather?

We basically do our tours no matter the weather. Participants must take care of appropriate clothing themselves. Should we no longer be able to go any further during the tour, then we will cancel it. Safety comes first. If before your tour, the weather is not permitting, we will arrange an alternative date. Terms and conditions apply.

Who are our guides?

Our guides are as colourful as Berlin. They’ve lived here in the city for years, know and love it. They grew up in both the east and west of the city, experienced the fall of the Berlin Wall and know the interesting history and places. They will happily share their knowledge and many tips about the city with you.
