      Top tour
      I did the ebike cycling tour. Freddy was not just informative but very witty and entertaining. The bikes were brand new and very good. We moved at a pace comfortable for most levels of fitness and got a great tour of the areas just outside of the Melbourne CBD. Great lunch spot stopover.

      Best $$ spent to get to know Melbourne
      Freddie was incredible! Very knowledgeable about the city and kept us ducklings from going astray. Bikes worked wonderfully. And Cibi for lunch was fantastic! Cannot recommend highly enough. We even rented the bikes for the rest of the day to take the route to St Kilda on our own. Google maps tour worked well but having Freddie guide was better. Will probably rent them again for a day when we are back in town to do the other four routes they have available. Best $$ we have spent on a vacation in a while. Really got the flavor of the city and have more insight to the culture than I thought possible. Thanks!!!

      A different way to see and appreciate Melbourne
      This was an amazing 4 hr experience! We joined the e - bike tour and had the most informative guide- Izzy- who showed us how to use the bikes and took us around Melbourne and we stopped to chat and he told us stories about the area. We had couples on the tour but also a mother and son. The people were a mix of overseas travellers and interstate visitors. All communication was great leading up to the day and I would highly recommend giving it a go.

      Rainy day rental, refunded!
      Nagbook kami ng rental ng road bike pero di namin inaasahan na malakas ulan kung kailan kami nagbook. Nagpunta kami sa shop nila on the day of booking para magparefund sana at ang dali at ang ayos nila kausap. Nakuha namin kaagad yung binayad namin tapos nagbigay pa sila ng mga suggestions kung anong pwede naming gawin sa city instead of bike ride. Ang galing! Thank you! Babalikan namin ito sa susunod na pagkakataon! (We booked a road bike rental but we didn't expect it would rain on the day of our booking. We went to their shop anyways to ask for a cancellation/refund and they were so easy to talk to. We got our refund right away and they even gave us suggestions on what else we can do in the city for that rainy day. Awesome customer service! Thank you so much! We'll definitely book with them again next time we're in Melbourne!)

      We had some travel issues and the Blue Tongue Bike Group were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Great company. When I mentioned we were working with them to the concierge at our hotel they also confirmed that they are the best in town.

    A small group of us on standard bikes which made the tour very enjoyable. Matt was a very professional and interested guide. Tour did include quite a lot of talking as well as cycling - enjoyed the anecdotes but would have liked to cycle a little more particularly around Fitzroy where we stopped for lunch. Overall though a good way for getting to know the city, and, if you are interested, its history.

    A great overview of the city and some of its highlights. Out guide, Matt, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastically related that knowledge with a series of interesting historical anecdotes that enhanced out trip. The company was professional in accommodating my need to reschedule. They seem to take customer service seriously. Would recommend.

    I've done many e-bike tours (mostly in Europe) and can say Blue Tongue Bikes gave one of the best. The owner, Freddy, is super-personable and knowledgeable, and his assistant Finn was excellent as well. The bikes are in great condition and Freddy led us past many of Melbourne's highlights (the sports complex, Chinatown, the Botanic Gardens, Fitzroy Park, the Shrine of Remembrance, etc.) through an absolute deluge (the shop provided plastic ponchos). Despite the challenging weather, everyone on the tour had a wonderful time and, most important, there were no accidents even though the weather conditions were so difficult. I strongly recommend them!

    Freddie was a great guide. Biking through Melbourne on the electric bikes was fun and a great way to get a feel of the city. Lunch at Molly Rose was great stop.

    We had a very enjoyable day with Blue Tongue and our guide Freddy. The bikes were super comfortable. Freddie was a good raconteur and had everyone introduce themselves which led to lots of fun side banter with our fellow cyclists. The route was good, and we saw a considerable amount of Melbourne’s highlights. We enjoyed the lunch stop at Naked for Satan. Lastly, we appreciated Blue Tongue's emphasis on safety - they had another guide bring up the rear to make sure the group stayed together.
