Departs at 2:15pm from April to September or 3:15pm from October to March:

Got a couple of hours to kill in the city or just short on time? Hop on the Sydney Highlights tour to experience the essentials of Sydney. Go on a super easy ride featuring stunning harbor views as you pedal past Circular Quay, the piers at Walsh Bay, Darling Harbour, Hyde Park, and the Royal Botanic Gardens. There's no better way to get a quick feel for the city than the Sydney Harbour Highlights Tour.

Sydney Harbour Bridge Ride (5 hours)

Departs at 10:30am:

You've seen it, you may have climbed it, but have you ridden it yet? Head out over the fantastic Sydney Harbour Bridge, take in its amazing views, and enjoy the peaceful surrounds of Sydney's North Shore! You'll start out in the famous Rocks district before you make the easy ride over the bridge — it's an unforgettable sight looking at Sydney and the Harbour from this famous landmark. After crossing, you will explore Kirribilli and the Governor's House, then onto a breathtaking 2.5 km stretch of easy waterside riding past Luna Park and the tranquil Lavender Bay. The conclusion of the trip entails a short ride back over the bridge, lunch, and a visit to more of Sydney's unique historical and cultural sites. Lunch and a beverage is also included with this tour.

Manly Beach and Sunset Cruise Tour (4 hours)

Departs at 2:15pm from April to September, or 3:15pm from October to March:

Start your Manly Beach tour with stunning views from the ferry of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline (don't forget your camera — you can't get better pictures of Sydney Harbour and Opera House). After the memorable ferry ride, you'll see the world famous Manly beach and venture out to the scenic North Head. Take in the coastal cliffs with the city skyline in the background, and depending on the time of year, maybe catch a glimpse of the endangered little penguins or migrating humpback whales. After the ride, sit back and take in the beautiful Sydney sunset behind the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, and city skyline as we cruise back on the ferry.

Please note: this ride is more suited to an intermediate fitness level due to a significant hill when heading out to North Head. But don't worry, it's worth it when you get up there, and the ride down is a blast! Ferry tickets included.

This was the absolute best way to see Sydney! Bonza Bike Shop was very easy to work with. We ended up changing our bike tour to the next day and from the Hi-lifght Tour to the Classic Tour which I’m so glad we did. We were able to see a wide variety of places and areas throughout the city that we would never have experienced had we not done the tour. Places like Barangaroo, Miller’s Point (where the city first started), the view from the Observatory, the oldest brewery/pub in the city, etc. Our tour guide Allen was awesome! He kept things light and fun while sharing lots of interesting information about both Sydney and Australia overall. It was the perfect way to start our trip to Australia and Sydney. I highly recommend the Classic Tour and Bomza Bikes!!

The Sydney bike tour was perfect! Careful attention was paid to helmets, bike safety and group safety. Our small group 7 riders enjoyed interesting facts and stories about Sydney's landmarks and history. The ride around the harbor and Harbor Bridge was wonderful, with multiple, up-close photo opportunities of the bridge and opera house. A stop at Lord Nelson's Brewery, established in 1841, was a perfect place for a cool drink and lots of atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Super fun day! This is the perfect way to see Sydney, because you cover so much area. The bike company and bikes were top quality and our guide Steve had us laughing the whole time.

Great excursion! We did the 5 hour tour which included crossing the Sydney Bridge. HOWEVER, be aware the ride is more difficult than advertised. The site reports this ride is good for all levels of riders but it was not accurate. We were in a small group of two couples and a guide. Two people were very experienced riders and two were not including me. There are a lot of hills as well as city traffic! At times, we had to ride on the sidewalks due to heavy traffic with lots of pedestrians. I had to get off my bike and walk through the crowds. Several times, I was left behind due to missing a traffic light. Also, remember, you will be riding on the other side of the street. I spent more watching the crowds and cars and surely missed some gorgeous scenery. If you are a confident rider, you will enjoy this bike ride. Lunch was supplied. The guide was knowledgeable and funny. Even though I had some difficult times, I still would recommend this bike ride.

I had the most wonderful by going on the Classic bike tour with Bonza Bike Tours. I had just arrive SYD at 8:00am via a 14 hour flight from LAX. I was a little apprehensive when I booked the tour not knowing how I would feel due to jet lag but the bike tour turned out to be the best thing I could have done. Not only did I get some exercise and much needed fresh air, the four hour tour gave this first-timer to Sydney insights that I never would have gotten on my own. The tour guides tips on restaurants, beaches and other sites of interest set the stage for the rest of my visit. I highly recommend Bonza Bike Tours!

There is nothing like incorporating a little activity while exploring a new city! Our group took the 5-hour Sydney Harbor Bridge tour we got lucky and were the only three on the tour. Our tour guide was a new addition to the Bonza Bike Tour tour staff - and she did a marvelous job. She was well trained, quite knowledgeable about the history of the city, and had an engaging and enjoyable personality. The bikes and equipment were in good condition and were comfortable to ride. The bike ride was gentle for the most part, however, there were three to four short, steep hills that can be considered challenging by some. Don't worry if you can't make it all the way - it is encouraged to get off your bike and walk it up the hill if you can't peddle it. There are frequent stops along the way to linger and talk about the sites. We also stopped for a picnic lunch for 30 to 45 minutes - a tasty sandwich and a bottle of water were provided by the tour operator. The tour started in The Rocks area of Sydney. The ride over the Sydney Harbor Bridge was stunning! We spent some time riding through the North Shore of Sydney and the Kirribilli area, Luna Park and Lavendar Bay. We crossed the bridge a second time for more spectacular views, and navigated a meandering shoreline to Darling Harbor. We visited the Botanical Gardens, the ANSAC Memorial, and many other sites way too many to mention. There were plenty of photo and Q and A opportunities along the way. It was such an enjoyable day and the absolute best way to see Sydney! Do it on a bike!
