We enquired the evening before and although there were no tours planned for the following day they managed to arrange a private tour for just two of us last minute.

I really appreciated them fitting us in, as well as not charging us any extra for a last minute private tour.

The bikes themselves were of good standard and Pip the tour guide checked that everything was in working order and comfortable before we set off.

Pip was an exceptional tour guide. Probably the best we have ever experienced. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, but the main thing was it never felt scripted. He was genuinely passionate about cambridge and its history.

I thoroughly recommend the tour!

The first thing to say is that I would recommend this tour despite a few reservations. It was good fun and we covered a lot of ground,seeing some places which we would almost certainly not have seen otherwise. We love doing bike tours in new places - it is such a good way to get a sense of a place. However, although our guide was very pleasant and enthusiastic, it did feel like he was 'winging it' a little. He was unable to open the main garage door where the bikes were stored so we spent a while wrestling with bikes in order to extract them. We were given disclaimers to sign but were not even offered helmets which seems unusual.The bikes were serviceable but not the best I've seen. As I say, the tour covered a lot of ground and we even got to see the Real tennis courts but, especially given the walk from the meeting point and the earlier struggles with the bikes, I felt we were short-changed a little on time. It also seemed poor planning to leave the brief stop for a drink until the very end of the tour (we only had the cycle back to the garage left to do) although I do accept that the FAQ suggests bringign a bottle of water. Overall, very enjoyable and worth doing.

Anthony shared his excellent knowledge with enthusiasm and good humour. Nice bike ride along the way (with plenty of stops). Great way to see a lot of Cambridge. Rare to find an activity all our teenagers like, but they all enjoyed this. Highly recommend!

This was a great bike tour by Antony who was a thoughtful and knowledgeable guide. We explored Cambridge whilst Antony shared background information and stories. It was a beautiful morning with a well planned route. We highly recommend this tour which is suitable for all ages.
