David showed us very interesting places in the city, but not just the typical ones. He informed with insider knowledge. We cycled 17km, it is definitely recommended. We saw a lot in a short time.

It was a nice tour with a very informative tour guide. Bikes were good and comfortable. Route was great and got some super photos. Would definitely recommend tourists to do this tour.

Peter was a great guide from Liverpool and was very informative but in a lighthearted, fun way.Easy cycle,safe roads,lots of stops and a coffee/toilet break.

Since our guide was very nice and personable, we had a great 3 hours and learned a lot about the city. Also, the guide got us safely through the traffic.
