Featured guest review:

‘What an awesome way to see the city! Our guide was a great source of information. The bikes were easy to ride, and we visited all the key sites. I loved that each bike had a name. We met people from India, the USA, Perth and Melbourne on the ride. Do yourself a favour and go on a bike ride through Melbourne.’ MichaelMolloy86

    Four of us visiting from Perth had an excellent experience, thanks to our wonderful guide, Matt. The trip took in some great sights and important spots all over the city. Plenty of cycling (but not too challenging!) and some great history, and fascinating facts about the city! Most of our party had visited Melbourne on numerous occasions before, but this was a great highlight of the trip as they learned some great new things about this fabulous city. We were really impressed by the excellent value for money this tour offers. We will definitely sample the other tours next time we visit!

    A really excellent tour. Our guide was very informative, knowledgeable and entertaining. He explained the safety points well and took care to ensure we lost no-one. We were in a group of 7, an excellent size. We covered quite a bit of ground and the route was largely flat with no hills of any consequence. The bikes were totally appropriate and in good condition. We went to a very good quality but inexpensive café/restaurant for a very relaxed, chatty and enjoyable lunch. A great way to see Melbourne and learn some of its history.
