This bike tour was one of my FAVORITE activities in Toronto! Terrence is friendly, spot on with Toronto and the Islands' history, thoughtful and fun! It was the perfect blend of exercise (without being too demanding as we had several interesting stops), sight seeing, and stunning views of the city. HIGHLY recommend.

We booked this tour after hesitating over the weather as we knew it was going to be cold but we were running out of days in Toronto and really wanted to do it. The booking process was straight forward and all the necessary information was made available beforehand. Terrance was very knowledgeable and health and safety was taken very seriously. Together with Marlene they couldn’t do enough to make sure we had everything we needed such as extra gloves, hand warmers and ponchos but it was particularly cold and we needed to keep going to try and get warm. Obviously there’s nothing they could have done to make the weather warmer but you should be aware that none of the cafes or other amenities are open on the island for some time yet. We did enjoy the cycling and would definitely recommend this trip!

We had a brilliant time on this trip, despite the rain! Lorraine was a wonderful guide, we loved finding out about the history of the island, which we wouldn’t have been able to do alone and we’re so grateful that they ran the trip even in the poor weather. Terrance also came and it was great to hear their stories as locals in Toronto, this is something you miss if you don’t interact with people living in a city whilst on holiday. Plus they gave us some great tips on places to visit afterwards. Even though it was cold and wet they provided us with warm fleeces, rain ponchos and gloves so we were quite snug! I can’t recommend this cycle tour highly enough, we were so well looked after, it was great to get some exercise, meet new people and see Toronto and the islands. Thanks to Lorraine and Terrance for a wonderful morning.

What a great way to be introduced to and explore Toronto Island. Our guide Terrence was flexible, knowledgeable and took great care of our group and any of our needs. The company's bikes are some of the most comfortable I have ever had the pleasure to ride on. Returning to the city at sunset is a site to see! I highly recommend this trip.

I highly recommend Toronto Bicycle Tours. The Toronto Islands Morning Bike Tour exceeded my expectations. I really appreciate that the tour took place, even though it was just me on the tour. My tour guide Terrence was fantastic. He knows a lot of interesting stories about the islands and how to tell them excitingly. First, I was a little worried because you have to ride a short part through the city, to get to the ferry but the tour guides will adjust to your cycling speed and a helmet will be provided. I felt safe the whole time. Thank you very much for the photos!

Everything about the experience was well done. We are a mid-50s couple and enjoyed the beautiful bike ride - combined with narration about Toronto and the islands. The equipment was great, with lots of attention to comfort (offers of ponchos, gloves, etc.) Our guide, Genny, was fun, pleasant, helpful, and a wealth of information. Highly recommend.

This tour was beyond my expectations! My tour guide was Genny, she’s a gem! It was a thanksgiving morning and it was just me on the tour. But the company didn’t cancel the tour just because it was only me and I really appreciate that so much! Great service! :) It was really enjoyable and I got to know so much about the islands. Genny was really sweet and answered all my questions I had while we were cycling. She made me feel comfortable as well! We actually got to cycle around the whole island too! And I got to know the history about the places around the islands. It was really fun! And cycling makes it easier to see the islands with less effort compared to walking. Was glad I took this tour up, was planning to walk on my own and would have probably given up halfway and missed out on a lot of stuff! 100% recommended!!! :) it’s gonna be fun!

Despite a vey wet and cold rainy day this tour was fantastic - our guide Mia had lots of great info as we travelled through the islands and made us feel at ease navigating downtown getting us to the ferry. A great activity and we would highly recommend this tour to anyone (even on a rainy day!)

When searching for things to do in Toronto several months ago I found this tour and booked it on a whim, not really knowing what to expect. I’m so glad that I did! It was a great start to our trip, and, as no one else was booked on the tour it was just ourselves and our guide (Meandra). I don’t cycle often and was a bit worried about the city part of our cycle (to and from the harbour) but from the outset I felt totally safe. Our guide talked us through everything and gave us time to get used to the bikes before setting off. Being the end of season the islands were quiet (and are traffic free) which meant that even though we were close to the city it felt like a world away. During the tour we learnt a lot about Toronto and the islands and their history, Meandra was full of information and facts and always happy to answer our questions. We felt so comfortable with her it was like being out for a cycle with a friend! I would definitely take this tour again and will recommend it to anyone who visits Toronto. It is a lovely way to see a different side to the city life and my experience of using this company has been fantastic. An added bonus is that your guide will also take pictures (on their camera) which then get emailed to you a few days later. I wasn’t aware of this when booking so it was a lovely surprise!

So glad we did this trip. Whilst I was very nervous about cycling through the city to get to the harbour front, Genny our guide made this very easy and safe for us all. The islands themselves were fascinating and the views back to the city were incredible. We were so well looked after. Fleece ponchos and gloves were provided because it was a very cold and windy day. Water and snacks also given. If you are going to Toronto, make this one of your trips - flat, easy cycling and great fun with a brilliant guide.

This was a fantastic activity. The whole setup they have is great. The trip down to the ferry is very easy and the islands were great to ride through. The pace was very relaxed so everyone could easily keep up and enjoy the views. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our morning spent with Meandra on the Toronto Islands Morning Bike Tour. Although we were initially a little apprehensive about cycling through Toronto Downtown to get to the ferry the dedicated cycle lanes and Meandra's guidance meant it was no trouble at all. Meandra got the balance right between cycling and stopping to provide information about where we were and took lots of photos. Overall a great way to spend a morning.

This trip not only showed me a beautiful part of Toronto I might not have got to see - it also rekindled a love of biking! Thanks team

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour with Mina, the guide. It was the highlight of our trip to Toronto. We started in the city and rode to the port to cross by ferry. The sights of the Toronto skyline from the ferry were spectacular! Mina gave us such an informative history lesson about the island, particular landmark sights, and even took pictures of me and my friend throughout the ride. The trails were easy to ride on along Lake Ontario and throughout the unique residential cottages. It was the best activity to start the day. I highly recommend this !!!

We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers and it can be quite a challenge finding an activity that everyone will enjoy but this totally ticked the box. Despite the slightly early start we had a fantastic time. We took the tour on a Sunday morning and it was just perfect. The guides were friendly, helpful and made us feel very safe whilst cycling in the city, the islands are so peaceful and we learnt a great deal about their history and measures that are being taken to protect them. 100% recommended this tour.

We had an excellent time. A bit of everything. It was our first full day in Toronto and it was great to get about and see the islands and the city skyline from the lake ... also to exercise the legs !! Very informative trip and really safe. Mia and Roberto were excellent hosts. Fully recommend.

We had such a wonderful time on the Morning Island Tour. It was really well-organized and led--Mia and her partner were both excellent. Helpful with bikes and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Toronto and the island. The ride was beautiful. Our 12 year old nephew was with my husband and me--he really enjoyed it as well. Highly recommend the tour!

Really enjoyed our tour of the Toronto Islands. Terence was personable, knowledgeable and fun. And he and Farhad kept us safe.

My husband and met our Tour Guide this morning and from the beginning we knew that Jenni would lead us on a great tour of the Toronto Islands. Although just the two of us she watched out for us as we pedaled on the busy Toronto Streets to our ferry. We navigated the lines to the ferry and then this was definitely a beautiful tour of some amazing islands right on Lake Ontario in front of Toronto. We highly recommend this, especially the morning tour because by afternoon at the end of the tour, both the island and Toronto streets were packed with people and then cars.

Based on other reviews for things to do in Toronto, we picked the Morning Island Tour. This was such a great way to see Toronto Island and learn more about the city. The guides - Genny and Thibaut - were excellent. With two kids, we felt safe and well organized while riding through the city to the ferry. They did a great job getting everyone ready for the ride, fitting bikes (even with a last minute adjustment) and even took pictures which they later shared for us to download. Definitely recommend this company and the island bike tour.
