Berlin is one of the largest cities in Western Europe. It's impossible to see everything in a few days, but fortunately it is possible to see a large part of the most important places. If you spend only three days there, you have to look for simple solutions on how to explore the city and have only good memories. During my stay there I decided to try the Fat Tire Bike Tour and it was the best thing I could have done. Why? I will tell you a little secret.
See more in less time.
As I said at the beginning Berlin is not a small city, so you need a good way of transportation and time to explore it for real. The Fat Tire Bike Tour company makes it possible. The tour duration is about 4,5 hours and during that time you can see places like Checkpoint Charlie, The Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Wall, Reichtag, Victory Column and many others (look for more here). What is more, they give people a chance to take pictures and stop at all sights.
There's no place for boredom there. The company puts in a lot of effort to make your time absolutely the best. The guides are really knowledgeable, well travelled, but also really easy going and funny. They don't act distant from the participants and you can feel free to ask guestions.
Not only for bike lovers.
Cycling is probably my favourite sport, so I was glad that I could explore Berlin by bike. But don't worry if you're not into it - Berlin is a really easy city to travel by bike. There are a lot of bike friendly routes and people are understanding.
Native English speaking tour guides.
Nowadays English language is must, so there's no problem to understand what's going on during the tour and almost all the people can enjoy their time.
Many different types of tours.You can choose the best one for you by clicking here. I took part in the Day City Tour and it was a good choice, because my priority was to know the history of the city better and see the most important places. I think that it's the best option if you're in Berlin for the first time.
The Day City Tour I chose costs 24 euro (student's price) and it's totally worth it. What's included? Tour guide, bike, helmets (not required), bag and lugage storage.
You can eat German food and try some German beers.
During the tour you will have the opportunity to have a little lunch in the middle of the park in Berlin. Try some traditional food - curry wurst with couscous salad and choose some German beer.
Don't worry about your sport condition.
