5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2012

Awesome tour at must do. You get to see a lot of the standard tourist sites like St Paul´s but you get off the beaten track and find canals and inlets you´d nver see otherwise. A full day´s riding but in reality not very hard and it is mostly flat. Guide was excellent. Try to go on Sunday as then Brick Lane will have it´s market on.

Enjoy the tour good way of getting around London, some of the lanes and alleys are a bit uneven so you need to be careful.
