Great way to explore the city.

It took a little longer than specified (almost 4 hours) but was consistently very good and informative. The driving pace was quite slow, so all participants (8 of us) got along well. Only the announced snack was very puny with a few blueberries.

Super nice bike tour through downtown Vancouver with our guide Jeremy. Good bikes and afterwards the feeling of having seen the most important things in the city. The snack (grapes) was not big, but very tasty and extremely fresh.

Interesting tour

Our guide Jeremy was very friendly and told us a lot about Vancouver during the tour. We were lucky and there were only three of us on the tour, so we were able to drive faster, the more we saw.

Jeremy did a great job! It was fun to discover Vanocuer and Stanley Parc with him as our guide. Very interesting informations and local perspective. We would absolutely recommend this tour ! :)

Our guide took us to both interesting and slightly unusual places. Told empathy. Pay close attention to safety and pay close attention to the group's ability. Very good bikes.
