Linda was the best guide we could have thought of. She gave us a beautiful tour around Sydney Harbour area with local insights, explanations and fun stories which made the tour unforgettable for us! You have to see Sydney by bike - and you have to book your adventure with boomers! Thank you very much

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour despite terrible weather. Our tour guide Andrew was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining and made sure we saw as much as possible. I highly recommend this tour and can assure that it was great value for money.

This bike tour was awesome! We got to see and learn about Sydney, exercise, and bond as a family. This was my son’s pick, but it suited all of us. Thank you!

High quality bikes, interesting, friendly & informative guide, home-made banana bread & coffee break, a great way to see so much of Sydney.

A little bit hard to find but once we were there it was all fun fun fun. Grant was the best and the bikes exceptional
