Owner description: We would love to show you this sparkling harbour city from the engaging perspective of a small group guided bicycle tour. This is a fun, invigorating and memorable way to explore Sydney, away from vehicles with heaps of photo opportunities. "This was by far the best and most personal tour we did in Sydney, we loved having the freedom of a bicycle and a fun and educated tour guide. It was easy pedalling on excellent bikes, and we received cold spring water, a snack pack and best of all, a wonderful photo essay of our tour in our our inbox free of charge.

I very much enjoyed the bike tour. The tour took us across many parts of the city, much more than I expected. Graeme, the tour guide, added his knowledge of the history and development of the city which added to the tour experience. Make sure you bring your camera as there were many places we stopped to take photos. If you are staying in Sydney for more than a day then I suggest doing this early in your trip, that way the tour may give you ideas for places to see later in your trip.

Our guide, Graeme took us to some interesting out of the way spots for unique views of the city. He was very good about taking photographs for us, then sending to us after tour. Gorilla Park was very unique and interesting. He provided snacks and water. We started the tour 45 mins late and I would have liked to hear more history. Also could have done without fighting our way through darling harbour and circular quay on our bikes. It was very crowded. Otherwise a good day. Thanks.

Thanks for taking time to Review. Our tour is pretty comprehensive, but doesn't quite make Melbourne !
Our first photo has the tour recording a proof of departiure this day at 11.01am. This was despite 7 walk ups (not booked), which included three children 9, 12 and 14 requiring correct sized bikes. Naturally the meeting time is not the departure time - greetings, bike fit, helmet fit, familiarisation short ride, equip for water, snack packs, sunscreen, safety instructions, gears, payments, forms, etc... So we usually get away in around 20 mins, so we were around 10 mins behind schedule.
To get from The Rocks to the Opera House and The Botanical Gardens Circular Quay has to be traversed, busy or not, same with Darling Harbour, to see it you have to be in it.
With children especially, we avoid roads.
The garden is not inhabited by big hairy dangerous Gorillas, it is a Guerrilla Garden, as in unofficial.
Happy you found it a good tour to participate in.
With best wishes

What a great way to see the city. It was easy to book the tour by phone and we paid on line. It was amazing to cycle over the bridge and learn something of its construction and history at the same time. Graham was an interesting and knowledgable guide to his city. An added bonus was that he took lots of pictures for us so we did not have to bother to take a camera with us. Great lunch stop on the docks and snack stop at a garden near the bridge.

Simply put, we had 2 excellent days of bike rides with Graeme and felt like Sydney winners. From Graeme’s quick email response to the considerate way he planned and accommodated our touring preferences, we really enjoyed our touring time. Graeme brings a real enthusiasm for Sydney combined with good knowledge and an ever present sense of humor. Graeme took a real friendly interest in us and in fact was very friendly to everyone we encountered on our bike travels. As we were leaving the port on our cruise ship, my wife and I were smiling saying to each other “oh we rode there and we rode there” and felt like real Sydney insiders on our way out of town. As an added plus, Graeme takes great pictures along the way which he later emails you. Thank you Graeme for two wonderful days.

We had been recommended this trip by a friend and were a little apprehensive as we hadn't ridden for years, however we had nothing to fear! It's was the highlight of our visit to Sydney!

We packed so much into one day and saw so many sights, and yet still went at an easy pace and stopped for some great photos! (Graeme took the best photos and emailed them over to us!)

Graeme obviously knows the area very well and made an effort to share his knowledge in a fun way, and took us to his favourite spots, and you can see why they are! There are views across Sydney that are off the tourist track, which you will remember forever.

don't hesitate on the price, it was worth every penny and we are two backpackers!!
