I was visiting the city with a friend on Saturday. We had signed up for the city bike tour at 9 am.
The only bump in the road we had was the launch point. It ended up being a mall and no one inside knew anything about bike tours. We had arrived 15 minutes early and since the company has no store front, we were just supposed to stand right at the entrance of the mall and wait. I wasn't aware of any of that and ended up going on a wild goose chase around the city. They ended up contacting us 10 minutes past our departure time and we were able to find each other.
After all of that it was smooth sailing. My friend and I were the only two on this specific tour so it was really nice to have one on one attention and conversations. I realize that may not always be the case on every bike tour. Genny and Jeffrey were very helpful. Genny was able to tell us all kinds of facts all the way down to specific dates and peoples names. Jeffrey was a real woot. He went to great lengths to take pictures of us and capture the adventure we went on. By riding around to all of the different districts, it allowed us to see where we would like to eat and shop at when the tour was over. We were very impressed with how pedestrian friendly the city really is. It made me feel much safer than some other cities I've explored.
Even with a rough beginning, I would do it all over again. I recommend this to anyone that is visiting Toronto and wants to see the city in a few hours.
Thank you to Genny and Jeffrey. We both had a wonderful time!
It's a great way to know downtown Toronto. No one should worry about biking, they go really slow and following the tour guide. She, btw, is really nice. All I wish was we could have more time to walk in some places like The Distillery.

This was the best bike tour I have ever done and we have done several. Genny was fabulous. SHe was prompt, knowledgeable,fun and I always felt she had our safety as a primary concern. This tour was lengthy but it never felt that you rode very fair without a break and commentary. It is a super way to get to know Toronto and get your bearings for later city exploration. We saw a ton of neighborhoods and parks and sites. If you do NO other tour in Toronto, this is the one you should do. This is a MUST. Just hope that you get Genny as a guide.
Excellent bike tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and willing to spend a the time at each site! Gave a great historical overview of the city. We throughly enjoyed our tour and highly recommend!
Thankyou to my 2 tour guides. One at the front to word us up and one at the back to 'bring up the rear'. It was a fabulous tour of downtown Toronto with much information not found in books.
It was a little tricky to find the meeting place but ask the friendly locals if in doubt.
Coupled with a foot tour with a local 'greeter' gave me a comprehensive overview of fabulous Toronto.
we had a blast- we covered a lot of area downtown so we saw a lot and our tour guide gave us a lot of interesting information about what we were seeing . The snack at the market was great and was comped by Downtown Bike. Wish i owned one of their bikes, it was very easy getting around with minimum effort
Excellent way to see Toronto and get your bearings.
Our guide Bobby was very attentive and educational.
The photos he sends after the visit are a bonus too.
The bike tour was a wonderful introduction to Toronto. Our tour guide was lovely and she made the experience so much fun for our family. I highly recommend this as a way to get your bearings around Toronto.
What a fantastic way to view the city! Our guide Jenny was fantastic. She was knowlegeable and patient with our group. Ride was not difficult with the stops and pace. We were able to get a better idea of how we wanted to spend our time inToronto because of this tour. Would recommend in a heart beat.
Loved the tour..it's the best way to see Toronto ...guides were super friendly and knowledgable
Really the only way to see the city! My husband and I are 56 and 60. We could do it, so can you!
This tour was great and fun!!! A different way to learn historically and physically about the city, very helpful for your planning on visiting specific and important places in downtown toronto. Our tour guide Genny was pleasant and knowledgeable! With the help of Jenna.
Really enjoyable trip. I was somewhat worried being an Oshawa boy travelling on the streets of Toronto, but our guide was experienced and knowledgible, and put my mind at ease, making the terrifying fun. The route was excellent for a 'fairly' fit beginner like myself and very scenic. Discover Toronto from a real insider and see the city the way it was meant to be seen.
An absolutely must. Michelle was the best. My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. Very professional and very informative. If you are visiting Toronto and are able to ride a bike, you will not be disappointed. My wife and I are both in our sixties and this was a blast.
I enjoyed the tour very much. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We visited many historic and interesting areas. The ride was 17 k, but with frequent stops, not difficult. It was a fun way to spend the day.
The best way to know downtown.
Our guide Terence Knows a lot about the city.
Great easy ride even though it was through the city most of the time. Our guides where very knowledgeable and very helpful
