Great way to see New York city

This was a great way to see New York. Bikes were excellent. The beginning of the ride took us up two hills which nearly killed my unfit sister, but after that it was on a flat. Our group was small, just the four of us (3 in our 50's and 1 in their 20's), and our guide Chuck was knowledgeable and chilled. Although it was supposed to be 2 hours it took more like 3 but there was no clock watching which was great. You do travel through traffic which could be daunting for some, although about 2/3 of the ride was on cycle paths. You cover a lot of ground being on bikes, much more than a walking tour. I'd definitely recommend it.


Great tour. Guide Debra was very informative & fun. She pointed out all the sites & also told funny anecdotes. The Tour went through Harlem then Riverside Park & down the Hudson walkway to the Brooklyn Bridge. We stopped along the way & walked about too-at Ground Zero. In all it lasted about 3 hours. I was really impressed by the quality of the bikes too-Cannondales which seemed new. I was particularly lucky as I was the only person on the tour but even if it had been busier Debra would have entertained everyone. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

Great ride and great guide☺️

Our guide ‘Dr Dann’ was great. My husband Mike and myself were the only guests on the ride so we had a private guided tour around the sights of New York not usually seen. Although it was chilly the ride along the Hudson cycle route was spectacular and Kevin was keen to point out those buildings and sights that we would not have noticed ourselves. We ended the ride with an exilerating ride along Broadway and saw New York through the eyes of a ‘native New Yorker’.

Excellent tour with Johannes, our tour guide. He showed us Central Park and a lot of other highlights of New York, like Lincoln Plaza, Broadway, Time Square, WTC, Chelsea piers, etc. Remarkable trip, we enjoyed all 5.

My cousin and I had a fantastic time thanks to the great bikes and even better guide, Richard. Highly recommended!
