To anyone who was tried to navigate around Vancouver which can be quite congested to see all of the sights...take a cycle city tour instead. We did the Grand Adventure with our 11 yr old son who said it was the best thing he had done during our visit here and we couldn't agree more. Matt was our tour guide and was a truly complete source of historical and cultural information while leading us through beautiful Stanley Park and so many of the major sights and more importantly neighborhoods of this city you would NEVER do on your own ir in such a fun way-on bike! We even took our bikes on a water bus over to Granville Island Market for lunch. Can't recommend this experience enough.

Don't be afraid of the tour durations. Next time I will do the larger combo tour offering.

The bikes that you get are sweet rides, comfortable and you stop off along the way to hear the guides commentary. I have always taken the sea wall and never really hit the trails through Stanley Park. After living here for 4 years - WHAT WAS I THINKING.

The guides that work for Cycle City care about their guests. They are also knowledgeable about the city, the backyard, and all you need to do is show up and have a great time. If you are coming into town for a wedding and looking for activity you all can do, hit this up. It's awesome.

As a group 10 people 50+ in age, some were a little hesitant to cycle 20kms the day after arrival in vancouver. After the tour, They all agreed it was the best way to get orientated in the city. Nick was a fantastic host/ guide for our group of Australians. From the time we arrived at Spokes bikes, we knew we made the right decision. Quick, but thorough with bike set up to suit you. We rode to our limits and saw things we had not seen on two previous trips. It's flat cycling( except crossing highway on overpass where we walked the bikes). Thank you for a great day/ perfect weather and lots of memories. No hesitation from us to book again.

We had an absolutely wonderful time with City Cycle Tours and I enthusiastically recommend their service.

Josh, our guide, brought a wealth of information to our five hour “Grand Tour.” We had the opportunity to cycle around and through Stanley Park, take the Aquabus to Granville Island, as well as cycle through Chinatown and the Gastown district. Josh did an outstanding job of mixing the right amount of informative commentary with nice stretches of very enjoyable bike riding at an easy/moderate pace. Josh was also very attentive to safety considerations throughout our ride.

The route was flat for the most part and not physically demanding. Our kids (early teen and pre-teen) had no trouble keeping up. Even Mom and Dad made it with no problems.

If you are unlucky enough to only have one day in Vancouver, do this. If you are staying for multiple days, make this your first activity.

I thought the experience was a great value and, without a doubt, one of the high points of our trip. I hope to ride with City Cycle Tours again!

Ifny took us on an amazing tour, and was a fantastic guide. The nature trails and history of Stanley Park were highlights, especially the discussion of beaver dams and angry bears. Highly, highly recommended, and ask for Ifny to be your guide!
