Great tour and Colin, the tour guide, was excellent. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and looked after everybody well. Bikes could probably be better maintained by the company as there were issues with tyre pressure.

This activity was amazing! We got to see so many sites and learn so much history. Our guide Greg was very knowledgeable and kept our kids (7-15) engaged the whole time!

Shane was great! A great way to see all of the key memorials/monuments. Had a bike issue but he was very calm and we learned a lot.

Great tour, really friendly guide. Very relaxing easy ride and saw so many sights. Great fun!

This is a GREAT way to tour the memorials. It was a fun family activity to do!
