Seeing the city by bike - an excellent idea!
Excellent way to see the city - Freddy was engaging and interesting, with a range of historic and modern information to share (and a beautiful man!) Bikes were easy to ride and comfortable, and Melbourne was surprisingly easy to get by around. Would thoroughly recommend!

Excellent Tour. Freddy was Great!
Did bike tour with my family on a trip to Melbourne. It was great, much more fun and educational than we expected. Freddy was exceptional, always very conscious of safety and super friendly.
Would rate this as a must-do for any short trip to melbourne if you want to get around and see some really good spots.
Good lunch stop too.

Awesome Biking Tour 😊
Jan 2021 • Friends
Fantastic tour I highly recommend for visitors as well as locals looking for a cool few hours of activity. Freddy was awesome with his knowledge of Melbourne and taking us to beautiful gardens and sites, he was super safe leading us through Melbourne. Lunch stop was a cool rooftop bar Naked for Satan. Lovely old building conversion to a popular spot with great views and atmosphere. We had perfect weather which made for a really great day and lots of laughs. Thanks Freddy 😁

Great Experience
Nov 2020 • Couples
My partner and I have recently rented some bikes and the tour was great. Our guide was excellent and provided us with some tips along the way for places to visit and see. The bikes were in perfect condition and well looked after. It has been such a great experience to explore the city by bike. The whole team at blue tongue bikes is very friendly and the prices are more than fair. I can only recommend them!

Great way to see a lot of Melbourne
Mar 2020 • Couples
Bike tour and guide (Freddy of Freddy’s Bike Tours) was amazing. It’s a very good way to see a lot of Melbourne in just 4 hours. Freddy explained many spots of interest and pointed out many aspects that we would not have noticed or seen by ourselves just walking around. Bike ride only required a slight level of fitness as most roads were flat. We stopped for lunch and drinks at a quaint but delicious spot. The food selection was very Aussie and perfect for a foodie like me. Highly recommend doing this tour!!

Highly, highly recommend this bike tour.
Mar 2020
I can not recommend this bike tour highly enough. Freddy was very knowledgeable about Melbourne and it's history - he made this tour very enjoyable. I don't normally like guided tours, but am thrilled that I didn't let that stop me from taking this tour. The bike route itself was very pleasant and an easy ride. Freddy was very safety conscious - so if you have never ridden in a city before, this is the way to try it out. The pace was great - allowing us to chat with the other members of the tour, which added even more to my enjoyment.

Freddy's bike tour.
Mar 2020 • Friends
This Melbourne city bike tour was great! We actually had Freddy as our guide. I was with 2 friends and there were 8 of us altogether, including Freddy. He was both informative and entertaining on our stops. The bike was comfortable and geared well for the few gradual hills along the way. The lunch menu was a bit strange but we all found something to eat and the service was fine. Overall, a really fun day!
