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.

A fabulous introduction to a beautiful city. Sydney is easy to get around by bike. Graeme took us to the main spots and some lesser known ones too. Mary's Garden was a highlight, stopping in the woodland shade to rest and enjoy the healthy, tasty snack he provided. We had new, well maintained bikes that were comfortable for the 6 hour ride, as well as water, sunscreen and insect repellent to keep the riders maintained! The fun photos sent after the tour are a good reminder of a great day.

Hey Souptree317,
That's cool 'A slice of OZ in a day' , yes we resemble that remark and appreciate you making it, thank you. We are still trying to find Mary's Garden, but we will take you to Wendy's 'Gorilla Garden' , And that's where you will discover your inner self (and our snack pack) !
We send you all the images we take on tour, because when we did it on day one, people loved it, we got better n better at taking them and they form part of your memories for spending a lot of your kids inheritance coming here, which we love you for.

We only had one full day in Sydney between Christmas and New Year and wanted a way to see as much of the city as possible. This bike tour was ideal and very enjoyable. Graeme was a great guide - very personable and knowledgeable. The tour was a full day but with plenty of stops so manageable for anybody with a reasonable level of fitness. If you are looking for a way to see much more of Sydney than you would on a bus or a walking tour then give this tour a go - highly recommended and definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Thank you muchly LandSP, for your positive five star comments, it is really fun by bike if you are reasonably fit,. They say its the most efficient means of transport ever invented, there are a couple of inclines, but then it's mostly flat or downhill and then it's like a Magic Carpet with the wind in your hair, but still burning calories at around 380 per hour, so we can enjoy the Linguine with lemon, chilli and pangrettata with pickled beet root salad which we had yesterday, excellent.

We booked the tour before we got to Sydney and were so pleased that we did! Graeme is a character and knows so much about the city. We met him and our two other tour mates (loved the small group) in The Rocks at 10:30am and the tour lasted until 4:30 pm. We biked all over including over the Harbour Bridge, to Luna Park and to a "Gorilla Garden" that has such an amazing story and is so beautiful that it's one of my favorite memories of our whole time in Sydney. We experienced our first jacaranda tree here. Graeme took some fun pictures of the group along the way that we treasure.

We stopped for lunch at an Italian restaurant along the water which was good. Overall we loved this experience and highly recommend it. What a great way to get a feel for Sydney!

G'day 'Freehold' from New Jersey, awesome Heads Up, good on you !
Everyone has a story and we enjoyed hearing yours , but really pleased you enjoyed the 'Gorilla Garden' so much, which is a magical place to share. One person can make a difference.

We did the tour on the first day of our Sydney stay and had a perfect start of that by doing the tour with Graeme. He guided us to so many place I cannot all rememeber but the earlier comments of other participants state them all properly. With his humorous Story telling and explanations we got plenty of Information during our tour which even took longer as planned. There was no need to hurry to be back for Grame. He took his time to entertain US! Thank you Grame for all your recommendations for further Sydney Locations! We had such a good time with you.

Dear Stephanie122005,
It's a cool idea to come on THEBIGSPIN on the first day, then you explore so many places and soon feel part of The Harbour City.
The Jetlag can be be absorbed by the wind in your hair, and feeling like a kid again on your bike.
We don't rush , if no-one has a deadline, because there's plenty to see, and lots of info to share over a sit down lunch.
Well, I had a really good time taking you !
Thanks for dropping everything to write a Review! We value the feedback.
With best wishes
Graeme

My tour with Bikebuffs on 3 Jan was the best value for money tour/attraction on offer in Sydney. For $95 AUD I enjoyed a personal guided 5-hour guided tour of the NSW capital which included a tour of some great sites of the city, cycle across the Sydney Harbour Bridge to and from, Lavender Bay, Wendy's Secret garden, Darling Harbour, Lady Macquarie Pt, Sydney Opera House, ride through the city and more, also a snack and water, tour photos plus a good bike and gear. Graeme and staff do it very well and make everyone feel part of the group. The ride - we covered 25kms in that 5 hours so there are a lot of stops and information on offer. Very doable ride, a couple of short steep climbs but nothing that I couldn't do and I was the slowest rider on the day.

Good on you 'Chocfisshh' you were part of a large happy group on this day. The best thing for us is learning something fascinating from everyone who comes on tour, their country, their work, their story, and it was excellent to hear a little bit of yours, including your son having the lead in the hit musical The Lion King. He has done brilliantly to land this role.
Thanks for the generous Review, it's expensive to get to Sydney from most places in the world, so we are delighted to show you a lot of Sydney in one day, while we all get a healthy workout and have some quality time together.
With best wishes
Graeme
