I must say, I'm becoming an addict of city bike tours! We're a family of six, and my partner found Cambridge Bike Tours after a quick google search. We were spending only a couple of days in Cambridge, so we called early in the morning to book our tour. Our tour guide was Anthony who, over the phone, sounded like... More

This is a nice view of Cambridge that I may not have gotten otherwise. My tour was more on the River than of the town (which was nice for bike riding). I enjoyed the bike ride but I would have liked a more informational tour. I like some of the stops, but not all of them. I hate to say... More

Met Anthony under lamp post in middle of park and then went to get our bikes. These were excellent for riding on the flat paths of Cambridge and I appreciated having a chance to practise before venturing along paths down to the river. He guided expertly through parks, over bridges along tow paths. We stopped frequently for him to regale... More

I did this in a very big group so we were down to the oldest bikes but they still got us from A to B. Great tour, lovely bits of information.

Thank you Anthony for a really enjoyable morning cycling around the beautiful city of Cambridge. He's a thoroughly nice chap with entertaining and informative tales to tell you about the history of the city and student traditions and antics. We went as a family of 4 with a 16 and 12 yr old, and the bike tour was the children's... More

We always like to start each city we visit with a bike tour as this gives you a good overview of key sites etc... Anthony was very friendly, personal and professional. He delivered really interesting local and historic information on different areas and not just the normal spiel most tour guides rehearse. We did the full day tour. The morning... More

For a overview of Cambridge with a friendly guide and some excellent factoids this is unbeatable. If you want in depth you're probably best doing a specialized walking tour or the individual colleges. We did the Bike Lunch and Punt tour which was great value for money, 5 1/2 hours and lunch for £35! The hybrid bikes are good quality... More

Anthony is a charming and interesting tour guide. The bicycling is super-easy, fun and an excellent way to see the city. I enjoyed the City tour this morning, took lots of photographs and have a much better sense of the town, both the University and village parts. I highly recommend this tour for anyone that enjoys a leisurely bike ride.

Great fun from start to finish. This tour was the highlight of our visit to Cambridge and a great way to see all of the beauty of Cambridge including the river bank, boathouses, the most prestigious colleges, and some hidden gems including a real tennis court! Anthony was a wonderful guide: personable, entertaining and very knowledgable. This was one of... More

Bikes all over the place, no apparent rules nor respect for other cyclists or pedestrians and the group even took one biker out. The guide even commented 'yeah we're a nightmare, deal with it, that's life' - a totally unprofessional, disrespectful & frankly dangerous way of conducting a group tour.

****** REVIEW REPORTED FOR DELETION****** Although we would sometimes like to be able to cycle for some of our guests by it's very nature a Bike Tour requires people to cycle themselves. We urge people that are not able to cycle or indeed nervous of cycling to not come on a Bike Tour and perhaps go on a walking tour... More
