About
Bonza Bike Tours was founded in 2004 to create a unique experience in Sydney. Before we came around, there was no way to see all that Sydney has to offer without killing your feet or being stuck behind the window of a bus. We focus on creating a fun environment where you can become part of the active lifestyle that Sydney is famous for, while having a few laughs with fellow travelers. We look forward to seeing you in Sydney – and Melbourne, too!
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Great tour, seen loads of Sydney in a 4 hour get moving classic tour. We had Rin our expert guide explain all the sites and we seemed to cover miles and miles.
Weather wise we were lucky with 28 deg and sunshine so the trip was first class and there was loads to see and learn about,
The highlight was up on the bridge looking out over the bay.
The lowlight was the climb up to that level but there is an option of an ebike which would have made life a lot easier. In saying that we are 60 + and managed fine.
Give it a go.... you won't regret it.

We hired bikes through Bonza on our recent trip to Sydney. We have a 10yr and 12yr old. The process was so easy and awesome value for money. Matthew was so helpful and gave us great advice on where we should go and created a fantastic route for us. Best way to see Sydney!! Riding over the Sydney Harbour Bridge was the best experience ever and seeing the sites all the way to Bondi! After a long day of riding you can take your bikes back on the Ferry and enjoy the scenery!! Highly recommend!!

We had Rin as our guide and she was excellent - very engaging and informative. The perfect way to see the fantastic sights of our beautiful city and learn a bit of history too. A must do for both tourists and locals. Would have loved to have more time relaxing at the Lord Nelson but that’s for another day. I’ll be recommending this 4 hour tour to friends and family.

Did a short bike tour while on our Disney adventure, and it was great. Lots of stops to catch your breath and hear about the sites along the way. My daughter had a problem with her bike, and they called the shop and ran another one out to us in just a couple minutes. This is a great way to see the city if you are short on time.

Hey Guys Glad to see we could entertain and educate you for your Disney trip here in Sydney. Unfortunately bikes do have issues from time to time and we are very grateful of your understanding nature in the situation. Hope the rest of your Disney Tour was amazing. Cheers Matt

Whoever invented this concept of touring on bike was a genius.

I have been to somewhere between 40 - 50 countries on 6 continents. I have grown tired of tour busses, excursions, walking tours, wasting time looking at monuments, statues, sculptures, fountains, squares, museums, galleries, etc. Most of these seem the same at this point and usually turn into a big production.

This was my first bike tour of a major city. The main things I liked were:

- Did not have to wait for or be crammed in a bus, metro, ferry, train, taxi or rent-a-car.
- Burned a ton of calories, got a great work-out in and enjoyed the sun.
- Saw all the attractions in 4 hours; normally this would take 5 days (by my estimation).
- Allowed me to get a feel for the city and decide which attractions to return to later.
- Was able to rent a bike from Bonza (to ride to Bondi Beach) for a discounted rate.
- After the tour, I was shown (on a map) a bunch of cool LOCAL (read not touristy) places to go by the tour guide.

These are great bike tours. I took the Bonza Bike Tours Sydney Classic Tour and the Manly Beach tour. Both were excellent. The Sydney Classics ride was just as you would expect – the highlights of Sydney. Our guide was fun and funny and gave us a great view of the city – and views of the city and beyond for your social media feed!The real highlight was the ride on the Harbour Bridge – much better than the walk! This is special and beyond expectations! We also visited an old Sydney Pub (British style) with its mix of Australian beer and non-alcoholic drinks and was an amazing stop on a great tour.

The Manly Beach tour was unexpected in all ways. The ferry ride to Manly Beach was beautiful and the beach itself is a great contrast to Bondi – local, unpretentious and laid back. The real highlight of the ride was in the hills above the beach. There was some real riding, with moderate hills (fund and challenging!) – and indigenous wildlife, great vistas and beautiful roads. This is a great company, with great friendly guides, and a whole lot of fun! The best way to see Sydney.

Hi Brad, Thanks for your wonderful review! We were so happy to hear that you had a great time on the Classic & Manly Tour. It really makes our day hearing about our guests' experience - so thanks for taking the time to let us know. Manly really is a gem with great vistas and wildlife. So glad you agree and had the time to take our tour of Manly. All the best and we hope to see you again on one of our tours! Cheers,

We were the only ones on the Manly Beach & Sunset Cruise so thought we were going to get the "royal treatment". Boy were we wrong! The guide took us on a nice ferry ride and bike ride around the area, however, there was no substance to the tour. His response to many of our questions was "I don't actually know the answer to that." He didn't tell us about any of the sites we were seeing while on the ferry nor could he provide any information on the local neighborhoods, flowers, birds or animals. Very disappointing!

Hey Guys Firstly I would like to apologise for the experience that you had with us. It was not up to our regular high standard. In light of your review we have spent the past month updating our documentation for the Manly Tour as well as retraining our guides on this tour. We went through a three step process to update this tour appropriately. It was as follows: 1) Consulted all our current guides to find out what areas of the tour could use some more information. 2) Updated our documentation for any future staff that become a Bonza guide 3) Retrained all our current tour guides on the Manly Tour based off the new documentation that we compiled. We implemented this process so that our guides may deliver a stronger experience in the future. Manly does not have as extensive a history as the City of Sydney, so we do need to inform every guest at the start of the tour that they will not receive as much information as they would on our other tours, however the scenery they will experience is some of the best that Sydney has to offer. When you come back to Sydney we look forward to taking you out again so that we can show you the improvements that have been made. We appreciate your honest feedback. If it wasn't for information like this, we as a business couldn't grow and give an even better experience to our guests in the future. Kind Regards Matt Rose

I rented a bike for an hour from Bonza Bike Tours in July. The owner was so incredibly helpful! First he outlined an awesome route to take around the harbor, up to an observatory and across the Harbour Bridge, which provided some amazing views of the Opera House and of Sydney. He put me on a great bike and did a good job making sure the seat was adjusted correctly for me. He obviously really knew what he was doing. Then, because I was leaving at 9:45, he told me I could be back at 11, giving me an extra 15 minutes for free! I greatly appreciated that because I could take my time and not feel rushed. It's obvious he really cares about helping people see a variety of cool things from great views in Sydney, not just the touristy things (the observatory was nice to see and gave stunning views). I highly recommend renting a bike from Bonza, and I bet their tours would be amazing too. When I come back to Sydney, I'll definitely rent a bike again or take a tour!

This tour guides you around Sydney in a fun and engaging way. I recommend doing this as the first tour of your Sydney trip (which we are glad we did). You'll gain a lot of insights of Sydney, saving you lots of time if you were to explore Sydney on your own.

Matt, our guide, was informative enough to recommend us good foods to eat when we asked him. And with his recommendations, we were able to taste some of the best foods in Sydney.

Highly recommended for Sydney-first-timer! :)

Hey Mate Glad you enjoyed the tour so much. We agree with you that this is the best first stop when in Sydney. We see it countless times when the guests who have more time in Sydney get so much more out of the tour due to being able to do the things that our guides recommend. Great to see you got to experience this for yourself. Thank you for the 5 star review. Cheers The Bonza Team

From Melbourne, I was born into the Melbourne Sydney rivalry. Yesterday may very well have converted me. Adam took the tour and was incredibly insightful and happy to answer any questions people had. He was big on safety, particularly ensuring the Europeans on the trip were aware of different types of road rules.

We saw some amazing sights of Sydney but what was exceptionally enjoyable was Adam's food tips all around the city. Between the cycling and the restaurant tips, I was quite happily hungry by the end of the trip.

You're in for a real treat with these guys!

To have converted a Melbourne person to a Sydney Sider is quite possibly the single greatest compliment we could receive. Adam will be thrilled to hear that you loved his tour this much. We hope Adam's food tips managed to keep you going well after the tour, and your trip back to Melbourne was a safe one. Cheers, The Bonza Team
