Fantastic e-bike experience - even if you’ve never ridden one before! Beautiful scenery, great guide (very good English), the good looking one with the great hair (!) Cyrip. He was good company and explained everything well. Catching the boat from Vieux Port to Pointe Rouge was very easy.

This was so much fun!! We had a great time up and down hills with beautiful views….traffic was a little crazy on some spots but part of the fun!! We were picked up at the cruise terminal on time and brought back after we were done. Recommend 100%

Kevin was a good guide for our group. Great experience to repeat. The bikes are of remarkable quality, you really feel the fatigue less.
