What a fantastic way to see Hamburg! We lucked out on the weather and only had a few raindrops during the 3-hour tour. Our guide, Ilka, took our group of 6 (my daughter and I were 2 of the 6) through the main areas of Hamburg, providing insightful info about the city and its history.
The advantage of such a tour is that you have a knowledgeable guide and can cover a lot of ground with a bike. And, Hamburg is pretty much a flat city - so, it's easy. Loved it!
We had good experiene with Fat Tire Tours 6 years ago in Rome, so we weren't surprised that this worked out well, too :)

We booked a private guided tour with Hamburg City Cycles for 8 people coming from cologne to get an information on hamburg highlights with historical background in several departments. Our guide, named Nils, had a very good background on hamburg history an could show us several places with excellent description in a 4 hours trip by bicycle on weekend of the 11th July. We enjoyed the tour and had a lot impressions of all areas. Due to the fact, that I lived in HH for more than 25 years, I enjoyed the bike tour through my old living area, called the "Karo-Viertel", where i met immediately old friends, which I haven't seen for more than 20 years..., which I didn`t expect, unbelivable...All in all it was a very nice weekend with friens of Cologne and we intend to spent another weekend in HH as soon as Corona is flattening down. Thanks again to City Cycle, who made this event happen. Due to the centralization and the perfect communication we highly recommend City Cicles for groups and singles, who want to see HH in reality.

Savvy was a great tour guide, and we learned many things about the city and its history. The tour is definitely for people who know how to ride a bike, and there are some big intersections and traffic.

I highly recommend this tour asap in your visit so that you can decide what you want to come back and revisit later on.

Our guide was extremely personable and knowledgeable about everything that had to do with Hamburg. Hamburg is the 2nd largest city in Germany and there is so much territory to cover. Biking around the major monuments of the city was a great way to explore all the amazing neighborhoods and get a better grasp on how the city is laid out. Appreciated her patience while we navigated the torrential rain & felt very safe under her guidance.

This is wonderful way to get an initial overview of the city. The three hours go by so quickly - seeing many different parts of the city and interest points of the old and new sections. The guide is flexible and stops frequently. The provided three-speed bikes are a bit clunky but just fine for this activity. Bikes are the best way to see this much!

A really enjoyable start to our visit to Hamburg. Our guide Phil was as entertaining as he was enlightening - bringing his deep knowledge of the city to life with humorous anecdotes. A great way to get to know your way around, and highly recommended.

I will really recommend this tour as it is a great way to experience Hamburg and very easy to see the whole city in just 3 hours. After this tour you will know, what you would like to experience on your own and you have a much better knowledge of the different areas in Hamburg. Especially going through the Elbtunnel by bike was a great experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour around the city. Conducted at a very leisurely pace, we learned so much about the city and it's roots. Great way to get around and felt pretty safe! And a lovely way to meet other like-minded people and share experiences over coffee at one of the stops. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon

We did a private tour with the company into the Vier- und Marschlanden. The bikes were simple but super comfy and easy to ride.
Lars the owner and later our guide is very friendly and professional all our little extras (delivery of the bikes, the route itself etc. ) were no problem at all and he was a super motivator during rainy periodes :-). We all would like to thank Hamburg City Cycles for the great day and we highly recommend a tour with them. 1000 Dank!

This bike tour was amazing for several reasons. Phillip knows his history, we had a smaller group which made navigating that much easier, we were able to hope on the ferry to Elbphilharmonie, Elbi Tunnel cruising on the bikes again, St. Pauli. We covered so much ground which was amazing and washed it down with a cold brew to finish the tour. Bikes were super comfortable and in great shape. No wobbles, worn seats/handlebars etc. I'm 6'5 and usually the one size fits all puts me in a tough place. 3 speed. I don't know why I didn't start doing bike tours until now... best bang for the buck and I walked to a few of these attractions before but such a different experience biking than walking (I was in Hamburg in mid-January) I believe you can also rent bikes from HCC. They didn't answer me back via FBK messenger but glad I was able to it booked... Trip was way better than I
