Our sightseeing bike ride with Alison yesterday was very enjoyable. Our host was very knowledgeable about the area and even went out of her way to show us the house my husband had lived in as a child. I understand this team also does tours on the Mornington Peninsular And Yarra Valley, which we’d love to come back for. Definitely recommend!

Enjoyed my day even though I hadn't cycled for a very long time. Lunch spot we went to was a bit pricey, but an interesting place to go. Saw lots of the Melbourne cbd sites.
