The tour itself was FABULOUS! My only issue was that Kevin the tour guide spoke more in French than English and this was a tour with an “English” speaking tour guide. Over half the group was French but they spoke English and Kevin said he wanted to practice his French but that meant I couldn’t understand him. I had to ask him more than once to repeat what he said in French in English to me. That was irritating to me!

Nice guide, good bikes

We were greeted very nicely by our guide with a few snappy anecdotes. Since we ride a lot of bikes at home, I was very happy to see that they were all really well-maintained bikes with derailleur gears. The sloping routes on the bridges and in China Town were not a problem. We were offered a helmet, but it was not compulsory. Sections were always discussed on the tour and at the end of each section we waited patiently for the stragglers. So you had time to ask the very competent guide questions or to look around in peace. After 3/4 of the way there was the possibility to return the bikes to another branch and to end the tour earlier. Since it was near the World Trade Tower, everyone accepted it except for me and my son. So we had a private guide for the last stretch, which we really enjoyed. He could really answer everything... how old which building is, how much it cost, where which star lives... everything
