Highly recommend
Scott_M, Mar 2023
Great way to see the city. Totally recommend Chris! A reluctant tour guide but a natural actor and thoroughly delightful person.
Nice company , good route , poor guide
marlenetawil, Mar 2023
We were excited for our London bike tour . It was just ok . Our guide gave us the bare minimum of anecdotes and information ,in a thick German accent barely audible . Hardly pointing out the sites as we passed through. When we took a break half way through she had us stop at what seemed like the seediest part of the tour. This was surprising to the entire group considering the charming neighborhoods we passed through . When we stopped the guide took the time to grab and coffee to stay and roll a hasheesh cigarette in front of all the teenagers , which I felt was inappropriate . It was a waste of time in an unimportant spot . All of the bikers stood there just waiting for her . Even after I asked to move on , she refused and insisted we stay there . When we continued on my daughters and I decided to cut our losses and head back . She was easy about it . The tour would have been great with a better guide. The bikes were in good condition and the route was interesting . I would not book with her again .
Great bike ride

I and my teenagers enjoyed it! Our guide, George, explained the places and the history in details and patiently. He also cared for our safety. We covered a lot of places and history in 4 hours! Love it !
Fun way to see London

Great option to experience must-see London! Chris was brilliant! If you like pedals more than busses, this is the way to go!

London Bike Tour did not disappoint
Imelda_I, Oct 2022
Our guide was excellent. I forgot his name but he said he was originally from Catalonia. He made sure no one was left behind and reminded us about safety. He was very knowledgeable about British history and even gave us bonus information about new developments in London. The weather was not perfect (actually typically London weather) but we enjoyed the four hour tour. This was our fifth bike tour around Europe because we have been on holidays for five weeks and London was our last stop. The London bike tour did not disappoint.

Must ride!

Highly recommend this tour - Chris was the best guide - informative and fun! We had a great time riding and learning about the history of London. Highly recommend - ask for Chris!
Not worth the time or money
Gabriel_S, Sep 2022
More of a walking with your bike tour. Not really the fault of the tour company, but London in the summer is just to busy to really bike through - especially in a large group. If you want to see the city + get a bit of workout in the Hop-On/Hop-Off would be a better use of time. Four hours (from 10am-2pm) is a long time as well.
Amazing tour with Becky!
Manpreet_K, Aug 2022
We were in a small group with Becky! She was incredibly entertaining and very knowledgeable! Our family had a great time! A truly great way to see the city!
Great tour!

A ‘ must do’ tour of the city
EkaterinaB, Jul 2022
George was a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide! We really enjoyed the many stories he had to share about various sites, people, history. A ‘must do’ in order to have a quick overview of the city.
A lovely London day
Carminna_R, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Ed was excellent. He’s smart and knowledgeable. Navigating around the city was hectic but he kept us safe. There was a lot of getting on and off the bike. It would be helpful to have a narrated guide while riding with a headset to help cut down getting on and off bike to hear the tour guide talk.
This tour really packs in the sites!
Leanne_S, Jun 2022
You see a lot of great sites on this tour! The guide was very informative and made sure to keep her flock safe in crazy London traffic, although most of the route was fairly easy riding. We only wished we had had a bit more time at the different stops to check things out, but it was still very fun. Our guide also suggested a great walking route in the South bank to do after the tour, which we did and really enjoyed. We got to check off our last few sites that way, including the millenium bridge, globe theatre, tower bridge and Tower of London.
Great way to see the city
Anne_D, May 2022
We went everywhere. Saw bits of London we’d never have seen otherwise. Our guide, Birgit, did a great job of helping us find our way, mixed in with lots of interesting history lessons, and took us to lots of interesting spots! We all thoroughly enjoyed.
Great experience. So glad we did this.
JenniferPierce, May 2022
Birgid was a very knowledgeable guide. I wish there was a bit more time at each stop, for pictures, after hearing the history. But the duration of the tour seemed just right. Maybe cut out one of the lesser landmarks?
Awesome bike tour
Michael_H, May 2022
Our tour guide was excellent. He had tons of energy and was very funny. He focused on everyone. He also shared a lot of knowledge with us. Lastly he always watched to make sure we were safe and nobody was lost. I would do the trip gladly over sitting in a bus. He was the highlight of the day.
Best way to see the city!
Daniel_H, Apr 2022
We had a wonderful bike tour with Birgit! She was well-informed and had a good sense of humor. This was the perfect way to see the city sights and decide where to come back later on during the trip!
Fun way to see London
