My husband and I took the city tour at the start of our visit to Toronto. The location for the bike pick up and start was easy to locate. The tour company responded quickly to questions and did everything they could to help. We were fitted with bikes that suited us and our tour leader ensured we were safe and comfortable before we set off. The tour was a brilliant introduction to the city and it was great to use cycle paths and quiet streets to travel between places. We saw many of the tourist hot spots and Terence, the ride leader, provided a stimulating history of the city. I would highly recommend this tour company and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

The best tour I’ve ever taken. Josh has an insane amount of knowledge! This is the first time I’ve been in Toronto and after this tour I feel like I know Toronto a lot better. I immediately went to places we saw during the tour and learnt about. This is 100% a must.

We are no spring chickens and the s ride was both doable and slightly chalk. Our guide was great, personable and informative. He paced the ride perfectly. Be warned, there may be a quiz at the end.

Fantastic way to discover Toronto. The guide was very interesting and dynamic. Small group of 10 persons. See many places in downtown. We recommend!!

A brilliant tour of downtown with Terence. Lots of sites visited as well as Terence imparting interesting information. He certainly knows Toronto!
