Just wanted to write and thank you and Mike for a fantastic tour on Friday. My children and I had a great time. Mike was informative, friendly and entertaining, and made the day really fun for all of us. I have recommended you to my friends and will certainly look to book another tour with you in the future. Please pass on my thanks and positive feedback to Mike.

Superb tour which I would highly recommend for anyone interested in sight seeing. You don’t have to be a confident cyclist to enjoy the tour as much of the route is on cycle paths. Our guide Patrick was friendly, informative and funny.
