There is nothing like incorporating a little activity while exploring a new city! Our group took the 5-hour Sydney Harbor Bridge tour we got lucky and were the only three on the tour. Our tour guide was a new addition to the Bonza Bike Tour tour staff - and she did a marvelous job. She was well trained, quite knowledgeable about the history of the city, and had an engaging and enjoyable personality.
The bikes and equipment were in good condition and were comfortable to ride. The bike ride was gentle for the most part, however, there were three to four short, steep hills that can be considered challenging by some. Don't worry if you can't make it all the way - it is encouraged to get off your bike and walk it up the hill if you can't peddle it. There are frequent stops along the way to linger and talk about the sites. We also stopped for a picnic lunch for 30 to 45 minutes - a tasty sandwich and a bottle of water were provided by the tour operator.
The tour started in The Rocks area of Sydney. The ride over the Sydney Harbor Bridge was stunning! We spent some time riding through the North Shore of Sydney and the Kirribilli area, Luna Park and Lavendar Bay. We crossed the bridge a second time for more spectacular views, and navigated a meandering shoreline to Darling Harbor. We visited the Botanical Gardens, the ANSAC Memorial, and many other sites way too many to mention. There were plenty of photo and Q and A opportunities along the way.
It was such an enjoyable day and the absolute best way to see Sydney! Do it on a bike!
Excellent tour guide, nice overview of city with some sights not ordinarily seen, Harbor Bridge ride a nice highlight
Very enjoyable! We had perfect weather, the guide was knowledgeable and fun, and a very nice group of people.

We had such a GREAT time on the 5-hour bike tour. I would highly recommend to take this tour. The company is run professionally and they take the time to really get to know you during the ride. You can tell that they have you best interest in mind and their aim is to make you feel like a pampered guest.
Awesome tour, I love bike riding so it was fun, and you see a lot of Sydney and hear the history thru the very entertaining Tour guide!
This is one of the best way to tour Sydney City Center. The tour was well conducted.
Steve, our tour guide, was awesome! The tour took us to parts of Sydney we would have otherwise never gotten to or even knew were there. We highly recommend Bonza Tours!
We had an excellent bike tour with Steve despite the torrential rain for the last hour and a half. The tour was very well organised and despite not sitting on a bike for at least 5 years I felt comfortable straight away. The frequent photo opportunity stops were just the right amount. Lunch was lovely. When the rain hit Steve produced ponchos for everyone and the option to curtail the ride but we all wanted to carry on. The tour is a great way to Sydney, far more enjoyable than walking! I highly recommend this tour.
thoroughly enjoyed the bike tour. took in lots of sights, tour guide was great and we got some gentle exercise!
Did the classic tour on 02/11/2015 our tour guide was Matt . He was a brilliant guide and very knowledgable , the only thing he didn't mention was the ashes lol . Would highly recommend it to anybody
Great way to see a busy city.... I truly enjoyed it.... I wished there was more riding.... the stops are quite often and the guide was very thorough with explanations....
Fantastic way to get a feel of the city and to see the sights. Sure beats a hop on/off bus.
This is a fun way to see Sydney. Enjoyed all stops. Matt was pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable.

Bonza is the greatest! I have taken all kinds of city tours all over the world, and this was one of the best. The people are genuinely fascinating, care about their city and most importantly, care about educating their customers on its sites while keeping them safe and entertained. I would recommend this to anyone!
We really enjoyed this experience and you do not have to be keen cyclists to do it for you are riding and stopping at sights all the time. Ben our guide was great fun and it is a great way to get your bearings around Sydney.
I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in seeing Sydney. We had a fantastic ride with our very knowledgeable guide, Pat. Simply awesome experience, a ride never to be forgotten. Sydney is a beautiful place and this truly is the way to see it!
My bike tour was the best. It was everything that it was advertised to be. Ben, our tour guide was very informative and personal, extremely considerate of everyone's needs. It was a relaxing fun tour, zipping around Sydney. A neat way to get a bit of exercise and see some sights at the same time.
The Bonza Bike Tour was a great way to see a lot of Sydney in a short amount of time. I did the 4-hour Sydney Classic Tour and the route wasn't too challenging, but there were a few hills to climb. There were six people in my group and it included an older gentleman who struggled a little bit with the hills, but he got through it and made the entire tour. We made several pit stops during the tour and even stopped at Lord Nelson's Brewery for an extended stop. My tour guide was Ben and he did a great job sharing the history of Sydney with my group and engaging with everyone in the group. Our tour guide Ben also took several photos of the group during our tour and Bonza Bike emailed all of the photos to everyone in the group. I'd highly recommend this tour.
Steve was our guide. He was fantastic. He lead about 12 of us. We covered a lot of territory. I highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your trip, rather than at the end.
Bike tours are the absolute BEST way to see a city and I will always seek these out when traveling. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny and we had a great tour - even with the rain and storm that came at end of it!
This was an excellent and energetic bike tour - 12 miles of biking, through Sydney, including some hills. The guide was excellent and helpful. We would definitely work with this group for their other bike tours in the future. We were lucky with the weather -- no rain, a bit warm toward the end of the tour, but generally quite nice. This is a tour that is weather dependent. If it is rainy, or really warm I suspect it would be less enjoyable, but for us it worked out fine.
I waited at Circular Key as advised in email but information was WRONG. I found my way to Harrington Street and missed the first hour of bike tour, I hope this has been corrected.
