I highly recommend this cycle tour. Even if you are not much of a cyclist. The tour is very gentle and suitable for all ages, young or old. Our guide, Cecil, was very safety conscious and the route itself was mostly on cycle lanes or quiet back routes. It gave us a good overview of York and revealed places to visit we might have missed otherwise.

Well worth doing this. 2.5hrs spent exploring all the sites of York with our guide , Andy, who’s knowledge of the area and the history is immense. Felt very safe riding the bikes around York , the route is mostly on cycle lanes or quiet minor roads. The route is flat which makes it enjoyable for all👍👍

One of the best tours we’ve been on. Cecil, our tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The tour was in great detail and was a much better way to tour the city than by sitting on a bus. Just wish we brought our wallets to give Cecil a tip because he really deserved it. Really good and I would throughly recommend doing this when in York. I’ll definitely doing this again!
