Owner description: We would love to show you this sparkling harbour city from the engaging perspective of a small group guided bicycle tour. This is a fun, invigorating and memorable way to explore Sydney, away from vehicles with heaps of photo opportunities. "This was by far the best and most personal tour we did in Sydney, we loved having the freedom of a bicycle and a fun and educated tour guide. It was easy pedalling on excellent bikes, and we received cold spring water, a snack pack and best of all, a wonderful photo essay of our tour in our our inbox free of charge.

“Fantastic Spin round the Best Harbour in the World with a Five Star Host”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Had a top day out seeing Sydney from one of its best possible vantage points: round the harbour, over the bridge, & through its lovely parks, gardens & lookouts. Great local history commentary from Graeme the friendly & affable guide, great company - you can go solo like me or with friends & have an equally good experience, & a great riding route. A casual, personalised service & great fun with lots of Zany photo opportunities en route. We took in the Rocks, Observatory Hill, The Harbour Bridge, Lavendar Bay, Kirribilli, harbourside, Circular Quay, The Opera House, Botanic Gardens, Mrs Macqarie's Chair, The Domain, Hyde Park & even some of the city hustle & bustle such as Martin Place & Haymarket before returning to the Rocks via Darling Harbour , King street Wharf & Barangaroo. There was even a local hidden secret thrown in with a stop off in Wendy Whiteley's superb & beautiful oasis-like garden. Its all relatively safe & as a novice biker I didn't feel threatened or in danger at any stage. You get to stop off at some nice Walsh Bay eateries or get takeaway for a Botanic Gardens recharge. As a Sydney local I'd recommend this to local Sydneysiders, visiting Australians & to international Tourists. If only many other service providers took a lesson in customer service from Graeme at Bike Buffs noone would ever have a negative outing. I even got all this on a Half price Groupon Promotional Voucher. No qualms about paying full price here though, its all worth it.

“The only way to see Sydney in a day”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We have done many bicycle tours around the world. Bike Buffs ranks with some of the best. Bike Buffs provides a great overview of this beautiful city with the insights of a local. The tour provided us with many awesome photo shots of the great sights in and around Sydney. Highly recommend Bike Buffs for your first day in Sydney.

“Sydney by Spin”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

For a great day out and a different view of Sydney, I'd recommend a bike tour with Bike Buffs. If you're on your own, no sweat; you'll make new mates and get plenty of snaps featuring -- you -- and some of Sydney's iconic sites. There are plenty of places to fuel up to keep energy high, and Graeme knows all the best loo stops in Sydney. So, what are you waiting for??

“Best thing I have done in Australia”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

This was by far one of the best activities I did while in Australia. Not only is it incredibly cheap for all that they give you, but it also is a lot of fun and educational along the way. The guy who runs the tour is friendly, personable, and accommodating to everyone. I wish they had more tours like his.
Anyone who is going to Sydney should do this tour! I am not kidding! A great workout and so much fun!

“Magical Day in a Sparkling City”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

We enjoyed every minute of this tour. With such a great city full of waterways and vista points, it's hard to go wrong. We biked in many different directions across the Harbor Bridge to Wendy's Secret Garden and got historical information, great stories, laughter and snacks. We saw the ordinary people and business folk as they went through their day--walking the streets, exercising in groups and lunching in the parks.

A great part of the tour was that the guide took lots of great photos of us is fun poses with landmarks in creative ways. That very night he sent all the photos to us. Fantastic tour. Beautiful areas of the city. I cannot imagine it being a more perfect day.
