Our group of five had the chance to go on a 3.5 hour bike tour with Bram (young version of Hugh Jackman), Jake, and their team. The staff are so kind with our safety as their highest priority! I’d seen the staff stand on the road to make sure that we are crossing safely. The pace is just perfect for exploring 15 km - 18 km around Guangzhou.

I learned so much about Guangzhou from Bram. He taught us about the history, culture, and geography of the area. I am a strong believer of experiential learning and his bike tour enabled me to remember so much because we were able to see, hear, smell, and participate in the fabulous journey around Guangzhou.

My family and I have done bike tours in Melbourne, Krakow, London, Vienna, etc and our experience with Bram and his crew is one of the very best! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Cycle Canton! You will absolutely L❤️VE it!

My partner and I were recently in Guangzhou, China to visit friends. Our friend suggested we do a half-day bike tour with Cycle Canton. She recently did the tour herself & was enthusiastic. We were not disappointed. The 4 1/2 bike tour traveled through old Guangzhou and ended up in the, very new, Newtown district. The tour gave us a real insight into how people live in this busy, exciting city. I particularly enjoyed the glimpses of old Canton and our knowledgeable guides brought history alive. The tour was very easy and anyone with limited fitness would have no problems with the riding. Loved the tour and grew to be very fond of GZ.

Staying 3 months in China for business, I decided to spend 1 weekend in Guanzhou.
I was looking for some useful information about an optimised and interested tour to organize by myself but was impossibile!
I found one walking tour and this 4 hours cycle tour ; luckily I decided to enjoy the last one, sure to visit more places cycling.
Right choice!! I couldn't do what I have done without bycle!
My guide was Broom and I can say to have been very lucky. He is very prepared about Guanzhou history , he understands what you are interested in and he is very available to answer to your questions.
With its many stops, the tour shows you the real life of this mysterious and interesting city and gives you the possibilities to understand more about its long and complicated history.
Unforgettable will be the experience in Kung Fu school ! You can meet and watch in action Yip Man granddaughter and you can practise a little of this balanced discipline.
You can walk in a curious market and discover what kind of fish and meat you could eat in Guangzhou.
You can feel close to Chinese people playing badminton in People's Park and testing tipical delicious snacks .
During the tour final part you can take a look to the modern part of the city, the one that you surely expected to see.
Finally, I suggest this experience not only to foreign visitors but also to Chinese ones.
You will not be disappointed!!

Having done bicycle tours in Shanghai and Beijing, we were excited by the prospect of doing this one in Guangzhou. However much to our disappointment, you can only do it on a Saturday only. Sunday was perhaps possible but only if "more" people signed up. And you guessed it - no go for Sunday. Unlike the cycle tours in Shanghai and Beijing, this one does not charge according to the number of people (ie cheaper if more people show up, more expensive if less people etc). So it appears that it is operatinal only at the whim of the owner rather than on customer needs. They could definitely learn a lot by seeing how others run a successful cycle tour company.

The tour guide didn't speak any English and the service was so poor, we didn't understood what the school and museum were for, the guide didn't said anything to us for those two places.. and also the guide didn't gave us any bottle of water. The bikes were in bad condition and so dirty, they uses the cheap public bikes, the guide took us to the dangerous cycling route, there were so many cars running just next to us which was not safe, we are really disappointed on the management.

Hi John, we have no record of you joining, and your description sounds nothing like the way we conduct our tours. Maybe you have us mixed up? All our guides speak great English, share stories at each stop, and provide water throughout the tour. The bikes are in great condition, and route is almost entirely away from traffic. We hope you will join us some time soon!

We had a weekend in Guangzhou between meetings. We’re really glad we spent the day biking with Nicole. She gave fun local perspective. Even with scattered showers during the day, we managed to find places inside. Then we broke out the fairly good ponchos with hoods supplied by Cycle Canton. A little rain was no problem because it was warm. Note that Google maps doesn’t know exactly where the Happy Monk meeting place is. Your taxi driver or the locals probably knows best, once you get close. GO FOR IT!

My wife and I took a private tour with Cycle Canton. We do a bike tour in most major cities we visit and Cycle Canton was hands down the best. Bram provided us with excellent historical overviews and tips on restaurants, etc. He introduced us to locals and tailored the tour to our interests.

We strongly recommend this tour if you visit Guangzhou.

Thanks Brad for a brilliant day out. Enjoyed seeing the old and new Guangzhou with a local guide. Biking through the little alleyways we would never have found, learning about the history and culture, and trying the local snacks a highlight. I enjoyed the wet market even though my co-travellers were a little squeamish.

Great to learn a bit of Kung fu from the granddaughter of the legendary Ip Man, a must for Bruce Lee fans. Thanks for going the extra mile and helping us with a Di Di car too. Amazing to see the progress Guangzhou has made in the last few years, I had no idea.

I would totally recommend this tour to anybody wanting to learn about Guangzhou off the beaten track.

A friend and I joined a group tour of Guangzhou with Bram on my second day in town. This was a fantastic way to explore the City and see some of the 'behind the scenes' elements of the city, exploring alleyways, markets and historic family homes.

It certainly helps that Bram was a passionate advocate of the city and very knowledgable about its history, and how that fits within the wider history of China. The tour is well researched and varied, and Bram clearly has an excellent relationship with the local people we met along the way.

During the tour we stopped at a market, where we bought some snacks and fruit and made our way to a local park to play a bit of Chinese 'hackey sack' which ended with a few locals teaching us how to play properly.

Thoroughly recommend doing this tour as a great introduction to the city. Thanks Bram!

Ben took us through a maze of small alleys flawlessly across the old city. So we discovered a part of town that we would otherwise never have seen. He took very good care of us (we were only two of us) by ringing with his bell all the time and warning us for every possible obstacle. He showed us a lot of typical things and told us several little stories about it. In the second part of the tour we headed towards new town along the river, which was a very pleasant route.
This tour really met all our expectations. Thanks Ben!
