Owner description: We would love to show you this sparkling harbour city from the engaging perspective of a small group guided bicycle tour. This is a fun, invigorating and memorable way to explore Sydney, away from vehicles with heaps of photo opportunities. "This was by far the best and most personal tour we did in Sydney, we loved having the freedom of a bicycle and a fun and educated tour guide. It was easy pedalling on excellent bikes, and we received cold spring water, a snack pack and best of all, a wonderful photo essay of our tour in our our inbox free of charge.

“Tour Review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Well this was a little gem of a tour and highly recommended to first time visitors or those fortunate enough to live in this beautiful city. We were a family of 3 visiting from Perth with a 12 year old boy and mum who hasn't been on a bike for 15 years!! Bike Buffs is run by Graham a real diamond who works tirelessly throughout the circa 5 hour tour. Graham makes sure the bikes are matched to the riders-rest assured the bikes are of a high quality and you should have no problem getting up the hills!! You just can't fail to get caught up in Graham's enthusiasm for his beloved Sydney and his infectious approach to sharing the classic sights and those that many of us would not appreciate existed. An early highlight was a 'secret garden' with magnificent views and a poignant story of one ladies passion to create a modern day oasis in the heart of the city - wont say more just do the ride and enjoy the secret.
Graham provides some classic photo shots he shared with everyone at no extra cost - compare this with 10 average Bridge climb photos for $45!!!! I can honestly say we loved our 7 day Sydney visit and did everything but it's hard to go past this tour for shear enjoyment and an opportunity to see all sides of Sydney. Our party included an amazing young lass from the US who was 10 years old and handicapped by her desire to ride on the RHS of everything but she made it around in honors. A testament to the tour is that we had 3 kids below 12 years who were not happy when the tour ended after hours. Graham is a true Aussie good bloke with a passion for the Sydney Swans who made one 12 year old boys holiday and for that alone I'm grateful. Graham we shall return and follow the Swans with added interest. Take care cycling those streets, Peter, Sarah and Harrison.

“Great fun even for the rusty rider !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Haven't been on a bike for 30 years but Graham's bikes are top quality and well maintained. The tour is fun , relaxed and informative. We saw things only the locals know about. We covered more ground than I thought possible but it was at a relaxed pace with some very scenic rest stops. We are still talking about how much fun we had and what a lovely guy graham is and how fantastic he was with our over exuberant 12yr old. Bike Buffs has been a highlight of our trip to Sydney.

“Brilliant Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

We were visiting from Melbourne and I took my 2 teenage sons (15 and 13) and French Exchange Student (15) on what I hoped would be a good way to get my 2 exercising and our French guest seeing the sights of Sydney. Well it could not have been better! We had a brilliant day, a perfect mix of exercise, sightseeing, eating, chatting and generally having heaps of fun. Graeme is the perfect host, knowing when to stop and let the kids have a break and muck around a bit and also include visits to places and stops of interest to whoever is in his group that particular day. Fantastic day Graeme, thanks again and hopefully we'll see you on another tour one day. And thanks for the great photos.

“The right way to explore Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

You see so much more by bike than foot or bus in Sydney. Graeme Dodd is a miracle as his witt and knowledge is combined with excellent communication skills. He knows where the right photo spots are and sends you his pictures on email after the trip.

“Great way to see Sidney!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

I had a great time with Graeme on his 5-hour bike tour around Sidney. Having only been in Sidney for one day after arriving from Wellington, New Zealand for a brief three-day stay in the city, I needed a way to see the city in all its glory while my wife completed her educational research which brought us here. As an avid cyclist, I was ready to hit the streets and Graeme was an excellent guide to the sites, sounds, and history of Sidney. It was also clear to me that he was able to adjust any tour to the physical and interest needs of his customers. Graeme brings a great deal of enthusiasm and fun to his tours. Higly recommended!
