Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great way to start our visit to York. Cecil is an excellent guide -knowledgeable, funny and charming. Being on bikes allowed us to explore far more of the city than we would have ever seen otherwise. We gained a solid understanding of York's history, key sights as well as general layout.

We loved that the tour met at York Brew, which I had thought was a coffee shop, to our delight it is a craft brewery featuring dozens of excellent beers. What a great way to wrap up our tour and a chance buy Cecil a cold one.

The bikes were light and easy to manoeuvre and the pace was leisurely, allowing the whole group to enjoy the experience.

The tour guide (Cecil) was super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.

I only wish we'd taken the tour on our first day in York rather than our last, as it showed us many places we would of liked to spend more time in. Can't recommend enough.

Booked this tour predominantly to get our bearings in York however it was such fun. Cecile clearly knows his stuff and he was very knowledgeable about York. We had a fab time and were surprised at how cycle friendly York is. I would definitely do this again. Thanks Cecil!

York Cycling Tours was just fantastic and over 2.5 hours gave us a really good tour of feel for York.
Cecil our guide (and owner) was just superb and made the whole tour a fun experience. Not only was he extremely personable, he was also very informative as we toured the city.
We would thoroughly recommend Cecil and York Cycling Tours.
