Brilliant tour whether a local or a tourist! Returning to hometown with family, Johann guided our family including a 12 and 15 year old. Great bikes. Excellent bridge tour relaxed and informative Johann was a perfect guide. Will return for a future tour! Highly recommended.

We had a private tour heading over to the bridges. We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage children. Johann was excellent from picking us up, to guiding us around the estates and engaging with our children to make sure they got the best out of the tour as well. Great knowledge, great guide, great bikes and a fantastic day out. Well recommended.

I hired bikes as a surprise for my husband this weekend and it was a fantastic decision! Johann dropped off and collected the bikes from our doorstep and explained everything we needed. My husband and I haven't cycled in 10 years but Johann filled us with confidence by showing us various routes on a map and we made full use of the bikes over 2 days despite weather changes! Johann was extremely friendly and willing to assist as much as he could. I will definitely be hiring again and recommending to all! It's a wonderful way to explore the city, get exercise and make long lasting memories. Thanks Johann!

We had such a wonderful time on the tour. We saw many sights we wouldn't have been able to find on our own and got some awesome pictures. Would 10/10 recommend doing a tour whether you're a local or visiting from out of town. The hospitality was phenomenal and Johann is a fantastic tour guide, it feels like being shown the city by one of your friends. I also highly recommend the E-Bike it makes the experience so much more fun. Definitely dress warm though! I assumed I would warm up while pedaling but since the E-bikes can go pretty fast the wind chill was still pretty cold. Just be prepared but don't let the cold weather stop you!
