The best way to tour Sydney, Australia, is on an electric bicycle with a guide, a reader says

I recently returned from Sydney, Australia, and the highlight had to be the electric bike tour by BlueBananas. Touring the city on an electric bike allowed us to get up close and cover more area in a short amount of time. The electric assist on the bicycle eliminated the effort on hills, so we arrived at each stop without a struggle. Our guide, Steven, gave us background information on each site and answered all of our travel questions — even if they had nothing to do with where we were.
