Freddy’s Melbourne Private Bicycle Tour is exactly that a Private Bicycle Tour. With a minimum of 4 people in your group we work the right number of guides to make it a safe and enjoyable experience. This means we work closely with you taking into consideration your groups needs and interest before we come up with the perfect itinerary for your group. We plan to start these tours at our shop in Batman Park but we can also come to you if it fits with your itinerary. The base of the bicycle tour goes for around 4 hours of and we do our best to keep this 90% off roads on safe bike paths and parks so everyone feels comfortable. Depending on the time of day we often include lunch or afternoon tea with your tour but have also run private tours in the warm summer evenings with dinner or a cheeky beverage at any number of Melbourne’s great bars. One thing that is common with your Private Tour is you get a great orientation of Melbourne and the key landmarks that makes it one of the worlds most liveable cities year after year. During our stops our guides will give you great tips on what to do whilst in town such as what’s on, and where and what to eat, if you have time you can even join our food tour later in the day.
