"Our tour was great, we had the best time. All thanks go to our wonderful guide, George. Our safety was a top priority to George and his assistant. We learned so much on this tour. In fact, when we would stop at a point of interest, many people walking along would remain just to listen and learn from our very informed guide. It was so much fun. "
"Very well planned and organized Friday Night bicycle tour of lower Manhattan. Tour experience was well described by the Cloud 9 and Bike the Big Apple web sites. Tour guide Johannes Weinkirn was excellent - well prepared, highly knowledgeable, humorous, friendly, and experienced. Definitely a wonderful gift experience."
"We had a great time. Our guides were friendly and had a great sense of humor. We learned some interesting facts about the city and were able to go to places in the city that we had not been to yet. I have already recommended this tour to several people I know. Thank you again. -Laura ONeil"
