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

We were a group of 7 girls travelling up to Cambridge for a weekend away from London. What a great day we had on the cycing tour and would definitely recommend it for all. Exploring this beautiful city and countryside by bike is the obvious choice as that's how all the locals get around..and its flat! Anthony makes it an... More

We booked for our family of four, met at the meeting point then spent a very long time faffing about before actually getting to the offices (the owner's house) and collecting the bikes. The selection of bikes appeared to be fairly limited - we cycle a lot in Amsterdam and I was surprised to end up with a men's bike,... More

We had one day in Cambridge. This is an excellent way to do it. Anthony was prompt in meeting us and getting us going. Got to see all sorts of back lanes and places you wouldn't normally see. Plus the touristy things. Anthony was full of interesting history and local stories. Had a great pub meal and an afternoon punting.... More
