This is a fantastic way to tour and gather information about Tucson, even if you aren’t a biker, like me. Rob was very pleasant and ever diligent with the safety of his bikers. He did a great job maneuvering the streets, which there is quite a bit of. He also does a fantastic job of talking about the points of interest along the way, not to mention the insiders scoop on restaurants, etc. The bike ride is not strenuous at all - you won’t be breathing hard. He gives you a water bottle and there’s a zippered pouch on the handlebars for camera, keys, etc. I definitely recommend this tour!

My wife and I just moved to Tucson a month ago. Some friends visiting from Seattle took this tour a few weeks ago and shared that they had a great time. We took their experience to heart and signed up and are so happy we did. First, our guide Rob was exceptional in so many ways - informed, shepherding, humorous and from England to boot! We talked soccer (futbol) and Guiness throughout the tour. Our route took us by many gorgeous historical sites and Rob filled us in on the backstory at each one. We would recommend this tour to both visitors and residents alike and are looking forward to our our next tour with Rob in the future.

Rob was outstanding. His knowledge of the city was both informative and entertaining. The bikes were great which made the tour safe and fun.
I would highly recommend for anyone visiting the Tucson area you do this tour first. You not only learn the history of the city you also get tips on restaurants and other activities and events that go on in the city.

What a wonderful way to start my visit to a new city. Rob led us around the historic parts of Tucson, pointing out sites of interest with historical reference, beauty and a little humor. I felt safe on the bike, with the group and moving in traffic which there was very little. I highly recommend this bike tour.

Thank you for the great review Steph. I had fun on this tour to and got some great info from Frank. If I knew something a true Tucson native didn't , then that is high praise indeed. Both always welcome.

This ride took us to parts of Tucson we had never been! The old neighborhoods were my favorite! The 2 hours went by very fast and it didn't seem very long of ride either! I would recommend this to families off all ages.
Rob was very personable and knowledgeable and a great ambassador for this wonderful city!
