We did the Essentials x Burbs tour and had such a fun experience! Ben was a fantastic guide, taking us to some of the quintessential Newcastle spots, telling us a bit of the history and fun facts as well as taking us to some of the lesser known 'locals' spots. Newy Rides is an incredible way to explore Newcastle and see what the city has to offer! I'd highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Newcastle, or those who are simply keen to get out and explore the city from a different perspective. Thanks Ben for being an awesome guide and sharing your local knowledge with us! We experienced amazing harbour and coastal views, street art, buildings, gin distillery tour and more!

Great views , delicious lunch , refreshing stop at a distillery , quirky local facts and Ben’s outstanding customer service. Money well spent. Highly recommend it.

We had avail this tour on our short vacation to the New Castle which was very well organized and informative by our tour guide Ben. It was really a fun adventure, cycling through all the main spots in and around the city. If you are new to this city and want to know more, this is the tour you choose .

Ben was very friendly and took us to interesting areas of Newcastle I did not know existed. Here, among other sites, I saw some great street art. it was great to stop at a cafe along the way and share a coffee and interests with the other riders.

I had a lot of fun on this tour with Ben. He was very knowledgeable and right from the get go you can tell he is very passionate about Newcastle and cycling! I was only in town for a short period and by the end I felt like I had a much better grasp on all the things that make Newcastle great. The itinerary that Ben put together was so well balanced and even for someone like me who hadn't ridden a bike in years. it wasn't daunting at all.

I also really appreciated that Ben was constantly keeping an eye on me and making sure I wasn't feeling or getting lost - it did get very busy at points! It really was an awesome way to experience the city and since then I've resolved to move to Newcastle (not kidding) and buy a bike. Happy days.

I took the Morning Essentials tour with Newy Rides - the tour route included beautiful scenery, street art, historical locations, all informed by our guide Ben’s local knowledge. The pace was casual and the route very easy to ride, and we gained plenty of knowledge about other places to see, eat and drink after the tour. A great way to see Newcastle, thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.

Such a great way to experience the city and really showcases Newcastle in a totally different light. Easily accessible cycleways and paths mean it's great even for people not super confident on bikes. Ben was a great host and really showed some of the city's hidden gems that we otherwise would've totally missed. Great to have locals knowledge when out and about in a city!

Newcastle is a must visit & doing the NewyRides bike tour was just the perfect way to experience the harbour foreshore. Such a cool history & Ben made it that much more interesting. Definitely recommend & I'm coming back for sure :)
