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.

“Impossible to Beat”
Reviewed February 17, 2011

I won’t ever forget the joy of peddling around Sydney, under blue skies and in great company. What a wonderful way to see this incredible city. Panoramic views, secluded hidden gardens, all the key buildings – threaded through with wonderful sensory experiences. Delicate pastries in a French café, barbequed fresh fish from the bustling fish market, the sun on your skin and a warm breeze cheering you on!

I felt part of this thrumming city with time to observe its extraordinary sites and sounds. I would recommend Bike Buffs to anyone wanting to get to know Sydney. It is an experience in itself – you not only end up more knowledgeable – but fitter as well – what more could you want!!!

You were such an enthusiast to have on Tour, it adds so much to the experience for everyone when someone is so appreciative and willing to learn about Sydney, it's remarkable history, the early years of the First European Settlement, the dreamtime (aboriginal) stories, the Rum rebellion, the green bans in The Rocks, the plagues and our obsession with cricket (glad you didn't dwell on that!)
Many thanks for sharing the experience with so many of your friends!

“a side of sydney that you won't get from the guide books”
Reviewed February 6, 2011

I normally go on bike tours when I visit cities and this was one of my favorites. Cycling over the harbor bridge was great but I also loved all the hidden spots that we were introduced to, outside of the more iconic ones. Graeme, our guide, provided excellent snacks and his aussie humor and attitude definitely added an authentic edge to the day!

It's cool to be rated among your favourite Bike tours, thanks Emily and James. Our aim is to make every tour individual and different, so it was such fun to take the time out, and have a refreshing swim in the sparkling 'Boy Charlton' swimming pool. Loved your humour, the funny photos, especially the 'contemplative' one at Mrs Macquaries Chair, where we were trying to gaze into the distance, but the Japanese photographer we sprung just wanted us to look at the camera!!

“Perfect Day”
Reviewed February 2, 2011

Simply the best way to experience the magic of Sydney. From a bike you take in much more than in other tour or transport. These guys know the great spots to experience the breath taking harbour and surrounds. It was the highlight of our visit.

“great way of seeing Sydney with Graham's cycling tour !”
Reviewed February 2, 2011

I did the twilight tour with my friends, I have seen the non-touristic places, really beuatiful hidden places, navigated by super aussie bloke Graham, I had a really unforgettable experience. I absulutely recommend my other friends or overseas tourist to do this tour. Sydney better be seen by cycling around the magnificent houbour !
