The tour was Fantastic! I'm so glad I did it. At age 72 it was a present to myself. David was my tour guide. As a Teacher of History he was full of interesting information and was great fun to be with. As I was the only one, on this particular afternoon tour, it was all the more enjoyable for me. David was very calm, he instructed me how we were going to proceed in traffic for a short while before going back to quieter side streets. I thoroughly recommend this tour. It was so interesting.

Doing a bike tour in Madrid was a beautiful experience and I recommend it to anyone trying to get a feel for a city. The group was not too large and very friendly, which allowed for a fun time. I felt safe cycling around the city as our guide gave clear instructions about how to safely cycle on the main road and in a group. Our guide, David, was knowledgeable and friendly, as well as considerate to the needs of the group. I had such a good time, I decided to stay with the group for tapas even though I initially planned not to. Thank you so much, fab experience.

Wonderful way of seeing Madrid. David, our guide, gave us a wonderful account on the complicated history behind Madrid, complete wit) with an understanding of the different styles of architecture. The bikes were very well maintained and great attention was paid to safety. The tour ended with an optional tapas experience that was absolutely scrumptious. Great recommendation!
