Had the best experience of my trip so far in Freddie’s bike tour. He is an extremely knowledgeable guide and as we were in bikes, could cover more sights. Also had an extremely pleasant lunch which gave the opportunity to ask more questions. Wouldn’t hesitate to thoroughly recommend.

The man who runs this business is so honest and trustworthy. Full of great information and helpful. We came down from Queensland to explore, the owner was unable to get a staff member for our cycling tour. Instead he organised bikes and maps for us to still enjoy the day and independently tour the city.

Trip was cancelled by organiser insufficient participants. As a solo traveller the system is not set up to support you need to be at least a couple to make the organiser feel worthwhile which I understand so maybe a system to link solos worth a thought?

Great Day on Freddie's Bike Tour

Our Best of Melbourne Bike Tour was conducted by Freddie of Freddie's Bike Tours. We had an awesome time. The tour included visits to some of Melbourne's most well-known sites and stops along the way to learn about its history. Freddie led us at a leisurely cycling pace that anyone could handle. Our stop for lunch along the route helped us refresh before the final part of our tour. Melbourne is a wonderful place for bicycle riding. I would highly recommend this tour as a great way to see lots of Melbourne and get some fresh air and easy exercise. Our tour was a blast!

Freddy is the best tour guide in Melbourne

A fantastic tour and Freddy was amazing. I was a bit apprehensive about this tour as the roads in Melbourne are quite busy but most of the tour is off the roads or on cycle lanes. The lunch stop was great with a good choice of food. We saw a lot of the city which we probably wouldn’t have seen just walking round. I would definitely recommend this tour

This truly is the best way to see Melbourne and get a good work out in at the same time. Found where a lot of great restaurants were. Saw the downtown area as well as nice residential areas. Had a wonderful lunch at the restaurant stop during the tour. Matt was simply fantastic. Definitely recommend!

Did the Melbourne bike tour with the shop owner Freddie on August 10, 2017. It actually ended up being a personal tour as no one else was signed up -- I was thankful he did not cancel for insufficient sign ups. Freddie was very knowledgeable about the city and had a genuine interest in relaying interesting tidbits of Melbourne's history. The bike ride was only mildly a couple of uphill stretches strenuous and Freddie makes sure it is safe for his guests. The bicycle has a comfortable seat and four gears which were easy to use. The handles are up so you do not have to bend over too much. The tires are wider so you feel safer/steadier. Freddie stopped, allowed some exploration and would give information which allowed riders to rest as well. There were bathrooms available as needed on this four hour tour lunch was about 30- 45 minutes, self-pay so bring some cash -- do not know if credit cards would have been accepted. Freddie was friendly, informative and appeared to truly like showing off some of the sites of Melbourne. This was a very good, relaxing time and gentle outdoor outing. I give this two thumbs up and think it is very well worth the time and money to do. I wish I would have done this activity my first day in Melbourne to help me reset my daily routine/adjust to the time change.

Visited Australia for 3 weeks and this was one of the best tours I did. Such fun riding around everywhere to see the sights and learn about Melbourne's history. I definitely recommend this tour if you're pushed for time. The bikes were well maintained and comfortable. Very good value for money too. Go for it.
