My husband and I took the tour with Cai. She was patient, funny, and knowledgable. I am not the most fit but found the tour to be at the perfect pace so I never felt puffed out or tired. York is incredibly beautiful and I can't think of a better way to see all of it's best and hidden bits than on this cycle tour. Highly recommended for all ages and abilities.

My husband and I booked the York cycle tour and loved it. We've been to York several times but this was a novel way of seeing the city. Nick, our guide, was informative about the history and considerate regarding our cycling needs. We would definitely recommend it as a fun way of spending a couple of hours around the city while also pretending to be fit!

My husband and I had the pleasure of Anne's company when she took us around on a York tour. We have been to York on numerous occasions but I have to say we are now more informed about the history York due to Anne's informed commentary. The ride itself was an easy pace on flat ground and will state it was the best £30 we have spent on a tour. Beats any bus tour and would highly recommend it to anyone of any age as long as they can ride a bike !!

We married in Portugal and a few weeks lated moved to York where I studied at the university for a year. We had 2 bicycles and moved in town always with them. We went to a lot of places in York at the time, but surprisingly the Scoot Cycling Tour we did in March 2014 took us and our children to a lot of places we had not been before! Our guide Cai was fantastic and took us to dozens of unexpected sites around and inside the city centre. We recommend everyone to visit York on bicycle. M.Correia

Thanks Teresa. It was great to meet you and show you the parts of York you hadn't explored before. I enjoy showing our guests a bit of the flavour of York, scratching at the surface of its deep history. It was lovely to meet the two of you and the boys and get some good British sunshine thrown in!

- knowledgeable guide with interesting facts and stories
- covers major sights leisurely
- excellent bike condition
- best to take the bike tour in the beginning of your trip to get a sense of direction, and then explore your sights of interest on foot afterwards
