    Tour started late because we were waiting for two people who did not get the update on new meeting place. Lots of bike issues for others on the tour. They really need two guides with a group to help solve problems along the way: flat tire, gears breaking, other technical problems. Minimal explanation at the monuments but honestly…. Even with all of that…. It is a GREAT way to see the monuments. Peaceful, beautiful ride and particularly good for teens!

    Our guide was great - lots of insight, stories. We covered a lot of ground in the time we had, we’re able to see much of the sites. Several sites have too many stairs for my partner who recently had surgery on his ankle, so we saw most from outside, but that wasn’t the fault of the tour guide. Unfortunately, my bike was a bit too big for me. I had a spill and because the bike was too big, I couldn’t get my foot down fast enough to stop my fall. My only suggestion is that they take more time finding a bike that suits your height. But that also was upon me to speak up. But the sign in process was rather rushed, so I didn’t take the time to ride it a bit to test it. Overall, a wonderful few hour tour.
