We took part in the bike tour on a grey day with rain showers - this made no difference to the tour. Cecil was a brilliant guide and showed us many interesting sights around the city. His stories kept us all captivated and we thoroughly enjoyed our two hours in his company. We’d definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to see and learn about this beautiful city 😊

We had a great time touring and hearing the very interesting history of York. There is so much to learn about York and all who have lived here for hundreds of years! We loved being able to cover so much of the area on bike. York is truly beautiful and biking around made our experience even better! Our guide was fabulous! We would highly recommend this tour.

Myself and a friend went on the guided bike tour today. Cecil was absolutely amazing, considerate and extremely knowledgeable about the history of York. Would 10/10 recommend to others, and if I was to return to York would consider doing the tour again.

Cycling for a few hours was a great way to see areas of York we otherwise wouldn’t have seen. Cecil is full of facts, information and stories from when the city first began to develop to how it is now. The route couldn’t avoid a small distance on the busier road but was safe, flat and followed a mixture of quiet roads, cycle routes and a lovely stretch along the riverside. We loved seeing the contrasting architecture of the buildings and the classic views of the Minster. A great way to discover York and great value for money.

Cecil, our guide, was astonishingly good. He’s so knowledgeable about York’s history and told us many details about local landmarks. Also he was was extremely funny! And he took great care to ensure our safety - not easy when dealing with a group of 10 cyclists. It was a very relaxed and unique way to learn about York. Highly recommended.
