About Peddle Perth

We are to Perth what gondolas are to Venice.

Our goal is to make the journey more fun than the destination

Life is about those little moments — those weird, hilarious, breathtaking moments — that come when you least expect them. We didn’t create Peddle to get you from A to B. We created it to give you little moment after little moment. We created it so you could focus on the journey, even if that’s only for a night. Ride with us, and you’ll laugh, learn, and laugh again. And make memories that’ll last the rest of your life.

The Origins of Peddle

In 2016, amidst the quiet routine of Perth’s nightlife, a new concept began to take shape, inspired by vibrant experiences abroad. How could Perth’s nightlife be revitalised? How could its residents be encouraged to embrace the city’s beauty and engage more openly and authentically with each other?

The answer lay in an innovative idea, inspired by the popularity of rickshaws in various global destinations and other Australian states.

This vision led to the creation of Peddle. Initially acquiring five rickshaws from Newcastle and transporting them across the Nullarbor Plain., this marked the beginning of a new era for Perth’s evening entertainment.

Peddle started modestly, but soon grew into a significant presence in the city.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with brands we’ve always looked up to — like Sunrise, Uber, and Lad Bible — and we’ve trained over 100 fantastic young people to be Perth’s best tour rickshaw riders and tour guides.

Frequently asked questions

What happens in the event of bad weather?

If the weather will significantly affect the tour, we’ll reschedule the booking. If rescheduling isn’t possible, we’ll offer you a full refund. The same goes for COVID lockdowns.

What’s your cancellation policy?

We know things happen so we have a very forgiving refund policy.

For any tour booked for less than 8 people, if you give us 48 hours’ notice, we’ll give you a full refund of any booked tour. For any tour booked for more than 8 people, if you give us 72 hours’ notice, we’ll give you a full refund of any booked tour.

For Event Activations, you must give your cancellation notice at least 30 days before the event. We’ll then offer you a credit refund.

Bookings cancelled within the above periods will not be eligible for a refund unless there are extenuating circumstances. These will be decided on a case-by-case basis by management.

What if we’re late?

If you arrive on time (or a little early), you’ll maximise the fun.

With that said, our Peddlers will typically wait 15 minutes for you to arrive and will contact you if you’re late. If there’s zero correspondence during that time, your tour will be cancelled and you won’t be entitled to a refund.

Where does the ride start?

Our Perth CBD tours start at either the WA Museum Boola Bardip or Russell Square in Northbridge.

In Freo, they start at either the Fremantle Visitor Centre or Fremantle Prison.

Please double-check the starting location when making your booking.

Can you drop us off somewhere after the event?

We can drop you off somewhere if it’s within a reasonable distance of the last stop on your tour. Just make sure you let us know ahead of time.

Do you offer gift vouchers?

Yep, we offer gift vouchers for all of our tours. You can select this option during the booking process.

How many people can fit on a Peddle?

Depending on the tour, you’ll book per person or per rickshaw. For tours booked per rickshaw, you’ll choose between standard rickshaws and electric-assist family rickshaws.

For standard rickshaws, we recommend the following arrangements:

  • 1 adult and 1-2 small children
  • 2 adults and 1 small child
  • 2 adults

And for family rickshaws:

  • 2 adults and 2-3 small children
  • 1 adult and 3-4 small children
  • 4-5 small children
Is there a weight limit?

There’s no weight limit, but please consider our Peddlers’ legs and the seating arrangements detailed in the section above.

Do I book per person or per bike?

All of our tours except for the Christmas Lights Tour are sold per person.

What’s the maximum group size?

In Perth, we can take 40 adults at once or 60 kids. In Freo, we can take 8 adults or 12 kids.

Do you have an age limit? Can I bring my baby or my 100-year-old grandfather?

Unless alcohol is involved, we have no lower age limit. And so long as they’re healthy enough for a bit of adventure, anyone from 100 minutes to 100 years old can enjoy our rickshaws.

If you look under 25, please bring your ID.

Do you cater to people with disabilities?

Absolutely. Our riders are trained to make sure everyone has a great time. We can help people get on and off the bikes, and we usually store wheelchairs near the starting locations of our tours. Many of our staff — including the founder, Zac — have experience with disability support work, too.

Do you take Companion Cards?

For individual bookings, we unfortunately cannot take Companion Cards. But if you’re a big group, reach out before making the booking and we’ll make it happen.

Are drinks included in the drinking-related tours?

Drinks aren’t included in any of our tours. However, you will be able to take advantage of Peddle-exclusive drink specials at each watering hole. Generally, our discounts will score you $10-$12 cocktails and $6-$8 beers and glasses of wine.

Can we customise the tour?

Absolutely. We love creating unique adventures.

Whether you’re after a themed tour, a birthday surprise for your loved one, a special bar stop, or anything else, just let us know before you make the booking or during the booking process.

Do we have to organise anything?

Nope. After you’ve made the booking, you can sit back and relax. We’ll handle everything.

Do I have to ride the bike?

Nope! Leave that to the trained rickshaw riders.

What shoes should we wear?

We recommend comfortable, practical shoes, but if you want to get ya heels out, be our guest, queen.

What is your safety policy? Do you have seatbelts and helmets?

Peddle Perth is a Quality Tourism Accredited Business. You’ll find seatbelts and a first aid kit on every bike. All of our riders have first aid knowledge, and all of our riders who transport children have Working with Children Checks. We don’t provide helmets for passengers.

All of our Peddlers go through extensive rickshaw and road safety training. They’re Peddle masters. Between them, they have over 45 years of experience riding rickshaws.

Do I need to show proof of vaccination?

Not anymore, thank the stars.

How is Peddle eco-friendly?

Rickshaws don’t pump pollutants into the air like cars do. Plus, you can make your tour carbon-neutral for just $1 extra!
