We always try to take a bike tour when we travel to a new city. This was a great bike tour. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

You can hop on and off a bus (mostly sitting in heavy Madrid traffic and spewing pollution) OR you can hop on a bike and tour around the central core of Madrid, interacting with people in the neighborhoods that your guide knows on a first name basis. Fun, very insightful and healthy. A good way to wake up your legs after a long flight or train.

Nicko was a superb guide who's love and knowledge of the city was readily apparent. The company seemed to be efficiently run and the bikes were in good mechanical order. One of the best 3 hours I've ever spent.

The bike tour was really good and our guide answered all questions fired at him as well as having great local knowledge. I would recommend taking the bike tour instead of the bus tour as you do the same route almost but with more info. If you are a little unfit then hire the electric bikes as it makes the hills disappear.. All in all worth every penny/cent.

What a fantastic way to see the highlights of the city. we were very fortunate to have a small group just 4 of us plus the guide and Nico went out of his way to make the tour an enjoyable experience. He was very informative and the small group gave us the opportunity, at every stop, to talk about the city, politics, royalty, history, the whole lot. At the end of the tour, he even pointed out where we had been and gave recommendations for places to visit, both as a result of the tour, and also other interesting places. The ride was not too arduous, although you need to have a decent pair of legs to get some up some of the inclines. All in all a very satisfying trip. Well done guys.

This was a really fun tour, we went on a Sunday which was very busy but our tour guide handled it well. It was really beautiful to see all the sites from bicycle you could cover a lot of ground . We drove through UberX hero park and we loved that. Our guide stopped often and explain things to us he was very kind, considerate and patient. We didn't ever feel rushed. It was an excellent tour.

What a great way to see the highlights of Madrid while also getting in a small workout! Note to the wise, if you’re not that physically inclined then I would opt for an e-bike instead. Overall, I loved this tour and especially riding through el Retiro park. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Sergio was an incredible and endearing bike leader and guide. He provided great background info on all the sites we visited, and eagerly accepted questions. He made for an incredibly enjoyable and informative experience.
