Our group of 5 had a blast with Grant and Linda as our guides and owners of the business. The bikes were so much fun, felt brand new, and the helmets too! Check list: Best equipment you could ask for, check. Beautiful location of Sydney harbor and surrounding neighborhoods, check. Knowledgeable engaging guides, check. Linda’s homemade banana bread, check (were we just lucky she happened to have ripe bananas that day? IDK maybe she can’t do that every time, but just shows how lovely these owners are as people). We’ve done several e-bike tours in cities around the world. This was THE best 3 hr excursion we could have wished for. Thank you Grant and Linda for being who you are. We’re fortunate to have spent time with you.

Jelle did show us a lot of interesting places with fun back stories and was always friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. The tour was very personalized and a lot of fun.

Had the best time! Grant and Linda have so much knowledge to share and were so patient and of course the banana bread was to die for! Highly recommend!

Driver very punctual & knowledgeable. Plenty of photo opportunities & covered most of the Sydney highlights

It was great to be able to see so much in a few hours
