      Great service with a smile
      We rented an E bike and a manual bike to tour Stanley Park. The staff were so helpful and really friendly. Both bikes were great and not a squeak between them. Would highly recommend this company.

      Worth every penny!
      The absolute best way to see Vancouver! Our guide Marion was exceptional. The bikes were comfortable and easy to use. Marion was the best tour guide I’ve ever had. Her knowledge of every aspect of the attractions, local history, natural flora and fauna, and the indigenous peoples gives a lot of depth to the experience. It just couldn’t have been a better tour.

      Get your bearings and see all around in the best way possible! What a “mind blowing views” 4 hour e-bike tour around town and through Stanley Park! Our Guide Marion was perfection. So kind and knowledgeable! We made several stops and learned so much! The views incredible!

      Excellent ride through an amazing city
      A fantastic bike ride. Greg was an excellent guide, taking us through so many areas and had so much knowledge. He managed to keep a group of 10 together and kept everyone fully engaged from a moody 17 year old to a hung over dad (me). A really great day out and got to see the real heart of Vancouver. Thank you Greg and city cycles.

      Incredible day! Saw more sites than I thought possible. Our guide was A+. I highly recommend. A full city tour with stops to take a look around. E-bike worked perfectly.

      The great explore 🚲
      This is a great tour to do early on in your stay in Vancouver to get your bearings and understand the different areas and history of the town. Our guide Marion was very knowledgeable and provided information on history, flora and wildlife. It’s a relatively flat cycle (just a couple of small hills that you can choose to walk up) and there is a lot of stop/start, so suitable for all levels. Definitely helped us understand the key places to spend more time at over the coming days, during our stay.

      Thank you Greg!
      This was a brilliant way to explore such a fantastic city. We were lucky enough to have Greg, our guide, all to ourselves. Greg was friendly, sensitive to our family’s needs (we had our autistic daughter with us who tends to interrupt with lots of questions!) and had lots of stories and facts which held our interest all day. Would recommend this tour to anyone looking to get to know Vancouver’s history and culture whilst making the most of Vancouver’s cycle friendly paths and routes. A real highlight of our trip!

      Cloudy day but SUNNY tour!!
      A cloudy and partial rainy day made bright by this tour. Greg and his magic pants were simply amazing, personal, and genuine. Thank you Greg for sharing your city with us. We had a 5 hour private tour for 4 and enjoyed everything about it. I can not think of a better way to visit Vancouver!

      The best way to see the city
      Wow. What a fantastic tour and an amazing way to see Vancouver. Our guide was Greg who was an absolute goldmine of information as we wheeled around this beautiful city. He made the place come alive with his historical knowledge and anecdotes. The pace was very gentle with loads of stops and a full 45 minutes for lunch at Granville Island. Greg made sure we were all together throughout. 90% of the tour is on very well maintained cycle paths. Truly a great way to see the city. I’d give it ten stars if Tripadvisor allowed.

      Great way to explore Vancouver
      This was a great way to explore the city. With hindsight I wish I'd done the tour earlier on in my stay in Vancouver rather than towards the end and then rented out a bike on a later day to explore the city further.

      BEST BIKE TOUR EVER!
      My niece and I took experienced Cycle City's "Epic Electric Bike by Cycle City Tour". EPIC is the perfect description! Peter was the BEST tour guide. He was very knowledgable and exuded enthusiasm & passion for Vancouver. He took us to all the best parts of the city and allowed us to stop for photo ops. I HIGHLY recommend! :)

      Best way to see the city
      Joined this tour on the spur of the moment as I was walking past the cycle store. The guys were really accommodating and enthusiastic. It was a great day out. Got to be the best way to see the city. The cycling infrastructure is second to none - really safe for cyclists. Take note other cities! The route was great; took us all around the major sites and lots of variation from the city’s skyscrapers to the timeless natural woodland of Stanley Forest. Nick, our guide, was really knowledgeable about the area and history. Don’t be put off by the 5 hour tour. The pace is fine for anyone who can balance on a bike. Easy rolling all the way. Stops for coffee and lunch, along with frequent stops for landmarks mean that you get plenty of rest. Don’t be nervous- sign up for the grand tour and see the city properly.

    Greg was out tour guide for the ride; he was very knowledgeable and articulate and had a ton of information to provide! He was also very patient and answered all of our questions as best he could and made for an entertaining and pleasant ride throughout. I highly recommend Cycle city tours; the bikes were great and the route very fun!
    In addition Greg provides a detailed list of must do and see activities in the city with a local’s touch. We’d repeat this activity in the future!

    A fantastic experience and the perfect way to see Stanley Park! I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Vancouver for the first time or even if you are already a Vancouver expert!
    The bikes are great quality and the pace of the tour is enjoyable for any age.

    My guide for the tour was Clement, who was outstanding! I have participated on many bike tours all around the world and trust me when I say that Clement was a top tier tour guide. He was knowledgeable, approachable, responsible and kept the tour engaging the entire time.
    Clement made sure that the group stayed together and did an excellent job explaining where we were headed next / what to expect / etc. He knew all the fun facts about not only Stanley Park but the city of Vancouver in general.

    Vancouver makes it easy for bikers with 99% of the tour being on designated bike paths/lanes.

    I look forward to visiting Vancouver again soon and participating on Cycle City's other experience, The Grand Tour which lets you see even more of the city. They also offer bike rentals for a few hours or multiple days, if you prefer a more 'self-guided' experience.

    This is NOT a leisurely paced tour, and when bike accidents occur there is no one to help you.

    The pace of the tour is too fast, and weaker cyclists are left far behind. There were 18 people on this tour with only one lead guide. The guide is on an electric bike, while everyone else is pedaling, and she allowed the strongest bike riders to set the pace. There is no one in the back of the pack to help when a bike crashes or breaks down.

    My husband stayed with our son towards the back of the pack. There were other people, including an older lady, who could not keep up with the pace of the tour guide. Catastrophe happened when a large moving truck cut off the older woman and our son, causing them to skid and stop suddenly. My husband shielded them with his bike, but due to the speed of how fast things happened, he crashed headfirst into our son's bike. The only reason he did not get a serious eye or head injury was because he was wearing glasses and a helmet.

    Long story short - the tour guide had no idea what was going on. My husband was lying in the center of the road, being helped by passers-by for over 20 minutes before the tour guide came looking for him. She poorly bandaged his eye (see picture) and because my son's bike was damaged in the crash she gave him her electric bike. He is 16 years old and has never ridden an electric bike before. Within 15 minutes, he crashed again but was OK. Just anxious because he didn't know how to ride the electric bike.

    This tour needs to reevaluate its safety guidelines, tour capacity guidelines, and need to have guide supervision at the front and back of the tour. They need better first aid training. They need better emergency response procedures. They also need to review their customer service skills. When my husband and son finally got back to the bike shop, not one single employee asked him how he was. Complete and utter lack of safety and emergency response on the part of Cycle City Tours.

    The views were amazing. Though we took lots of photos, we were also very present in riding bikes. The experience level differences with riders was a challenge at times… it was clear there were some beginners and they were not prepared for riding/ sizing. I would recommend staff confirm rider skills capacity and proper bike sizing before disembarking. I am an experienced cyclist and I was very keen on getting my groups cycles appropriately sized/ adjusted for them before we took off. This was not the case for other tour attendees. Our tour guide, Astrid was so pleasant and knowledgeable and really made our tour a joyful experience. She shared her love of nature of Vancouver while being mindful of rider safety and navigating us safely through the bustling city. The weather was beautiful and the bikes came with a ~ 2Liter bag for holding personal affects ( ie a hat/ light jacket/ phone) and a water bottle holder. Cycle city provided helmets though we brought our own helmets… they have a full bike shop attached so you can get most bike related necessities there. I would do another tour with them.

    We were visiting Vancouver for a short time so had to make the most of it and felt a Bike Tour would be the best use of our time and a great way to start the vacation so we reached out to Cycle City and booked ourselves a Stanely park tour.

    Bottom line, we loved it. We are a family of 4 with an 11 and a 6 year old who are not easy to please, but we all had such a wonderful time and didn't know where the time flew.

    Paulo was our guide and he was amazing! Extremely knowledgeable and was open to answering any questions we had, learnt a tremendous amount about Vancouver from him, history, economy, politics, culture, etc. Most of all we connected with him instantly which made our tour even more enjoyable.

    Definitely recommend Cycle City and Paulo.

    The bike tour was very well planned and the guide was incredible! Very knowledgable and super fun. Incredible views around the city!!

    I think that the biggest issue is that you couldn't hear him very well. My suggestion is to have, if possible, some kind of mic because having someone telling you about the city should be half the experience and without that, it seems like a very pricey tour.

    Our family of six (kids ages 12, 9, 6, and 6) took a 3 hour Stanley Park bike tour led by Mark. It was a fantastic introduction to the city and Mark was a stellar guide. He was knowledgeable, attentive to the different ages and interests of our kids, kind, funny, and safety-oriented. The perfect introduction to the city — sure to be a highlight of our trip. Would recommend to any active family visiting! Bike tours have become our new favorite way to see a new city and Mark and Cycle City are standouts. So much to see, learn, and do it this beautiful city. Would love to come back and take the Grand Tour. Thanks Mark and Cycle City!

    Easy to find start location in downtown Vancouver. Friendly staff. Mika, our guide was great!!

    We made the reservation on the website from Baya Bikes in our homecountry.
    On site clear explanation of the tour, helmets included, handy little bike bag on the handlebar of the bicycle so that you leave your big bag in the store.

    The tour had serveral stops where Mika told interesting things about the city, the inhabitants, the culture, the country, the history, etc. in a fun way! (Thanks again Mika 😄) a great way to do some siteseeing!

    We (a familie of 4 of which 2 pubers) love doing biketours to explore cities we visit. Vancouver is a beautyfull, bicycle friendly city. Stanley park is truly amazing. We had great bike tour!

    Paulo was amazing from start to finish; we had a ton of fun and laughs, learned so much interesting facts from Paulo’s wealth of knowledge about Vancouver, it’s history, and the land. He shared great tips to help us easily plan the rest of our trip. Looking forward to returning for another tour in the future with Paulo!
