A fantastic experience and the perfect way to see Stanley Park! I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Vancouver for the first time or even if you are already a Vancouver expert!
The bikes are great quality and the pace of the tour is enjoyable for any age.

My guide for the tour was Clement, who was outstanding! I have participated on many bike tours all around the world and trust me when I say that Clement was a top tier tour guide. He was knowledgeable, approachable, responsible and kept the tour engaging the entire time.
Clement made sure that the group stayed together and did an excellent job explaining where we were headed next / what to expect / etc. He knew all the fun facts about not only Stanley Park but the city of Vancouver in general.

Vancouver makes it easy for bikers with 99% of the tour being on designated bike paths/lanes.

I look forward to visiting Vancouver again soon and participating on Cycle City's other experience, The Grand Tour which lets you see even more of the city. They also offer bike rentals for a few hours or multiple days, if you prefer a more 'self-guided' experience.

Our family of six (kids ages 12, 9, 6, and 6) took a 3 hour Stanley Park bike tour led by Mark. It was a fantastic introduction to the city and Mark was a stellar guide. He was knowledgeable, attentive to the different ages and interests of our kids, kind, funny, and safety-oriented. The perfect introduction to the city — sure to be a highlight of our trip. Would recommend to any active family visiting! Bike tours have become our new favorite way to see a new city and Mark and Cycle City are standouts. So much to see, learn, and do it this beautiful city. Would love to come back and take the Grand Tour. Thanks Mark and Cycle City!

My partner and I were in Vancouver for a couple of days prior to a cruise to Alaska. We decided a bike tour would be a good way to get to know the city a little better. We booked through a travel agent in the UK, but you can also book online or in person at the bike shop.
The staff were very friendly from the outset, and they were able to answer any queries we had about the tour.

We were set up with a bike and helmet each. (I think helmets are a legal requirement for cycling in Canada. Just a heads up. No pun intended.) We used road bikes which were in good working order and fitted with normal road tyres.

The weather was pretty good on the day we did the tour, we were however warned by most of the locals that this is a rare occurrence, so be ready to cycle in the rain.

We were guided by Paulo, a seasoned cyclist with a very comprehensive knowledge of past and present Vancouver.

The city itself is fairly well adapted for cycling. I found it slightly easier to cycle around than my home city of Oxford (famously a cycling city) inspite of having to get used to cycling on the right.

Mingling with traffic was minimal as there were cycle lanes all the way around the route, and we left the roads behind when we entered Stanley Park.
The pace set was reasonable, so you don't need to be massively fit, but we did cover about 30k in total, so if you're an avid couch potato you may struggle.
The tour included a visit to Granville Island, where we found almost every type of cuisine known to man available. (The salmon burger was amazing.)
Most of the route is on tarmac (asphalt?) though it does also cover a few gravel tracks around the park's rainforest areas. The bikes seemed to handle these without any trouble though.

In short this is a great tour for anyone who is interested in the history of the city, and are competent with the basics of handling a bicycle.

The bike tour was very well planned and the guide was incredible! Very knowledgable and super fun. Incredible views around the city!!

I think that the biggest issue is that you couldn't hear him very well. My suggestion is to have, if possible, some kind of mic because having someone telling you about the city should be half the experience and without that, it seems like a very pricey tour.

Josh led our bike tour to and from Stanley Park. This tour is a must! We opted to try e-bikes and enjoyed every moment. The staff at Cycle City provided excellent, friendly customer service. Josh, the owner, not only knows bikes and the city but he shares the local history, anthropology, eco systems, cultural and social aspects of the park and surrounding metro area. He also provided referrals for restaurant and sight seeing activities. We’ll done!

We were visiting Vancouver for a short time so had to make the most of it and felt a Bike Tour would be the best use of our time and a great way to start the vacation so we reached out to Cycle City and booked ourselves a Stanely park tour.

Bottom line, we loved it. We are a family of 4 with an 11 and a 6 year old who are not easy to please, but we all had such a wonderful time and didn't know where the time flew.

Paulo was our guide and he was amazing! Extremely knowledgeable and was open to answering any questions we had, learnt a tremendous amount about Vancouver from him, history, economy, politics, culture, etc. Most of all we connected with him instantly which made our tour even more enjoyable.

Definitely recommend Cycle City and Paulo.

Absolutely fantastic time with Greg around Stanley Park. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very friendly. It was nice to hear about Vancouver from a local who lives there. He took time to focus on the information that was more relevant to our interests. It probably helped that it was only my partner and I on the tour. We lucked out with the weather and got some spectacular photos. Would definitely recommend it over the bus tour as you avoid the traffic and get a more intimate view of the city. The cycle lanes in the downtown area make the experience safe and very enjoyable. Probably one of the best tours I’ve ever been on anywhere!

My husband and I had a fantastic bike tour of Stanley Park with Greg. It was colder than we expected and Greg was kind enough to find and take us to a local gift shop to purchase gloves and toques. The bikes and helmets were good quality and Greg was thougtful in providing ponchos just in case we were caught in a downpour. Stanley Park is breathtaking and I know we wouldn't have truly appreciated the park and it's history without Greg's stories, insights and knowledge. I lost my sunglasses along the way and Greg was nice enough to backtrack on the trail with me to look for them. Greg also provided wonderful suggestions on local dining and art venues. We 100% recommend this beautiful, magical tour with Greg!

This was a really great bike ride through Stanley Park. Our guide Greg was awesome! He kept us entertained with jokes, and was very knowledgeable about Vancouver's history.

One person in our group had an E-bike and she loved it. The tour was about 3 hours long but it didn't feel like it, even though it was slightly drizzly at times. Stanley Park is beautiful!

Simply awesome bike tour through beautiful Stanley Park with the wonderful Paulo.
He is a font of knowledge on Vancouver and presents it in such an entertaining way.
Could not recommend the tour with Paulo highly enough - simply brilliant fun!
And how he manages to make a round trip downhill all the way?!? Loved it
