We took the tour on a monday morning and was really a wonferful experience. Michael, the guide, took us through the "must see" places of the city and made all of us spend a great morning. The tour is very easy and we did not get tired or bored at all from start to the end, and we felt safe... More

What an amazing afternoon we had pedalling around London on our super comfy bikes and taking in the 'secret ' sights. With 3 boys (aged 10, 12, and 13 ) to entertain, sight seeing is often greeted with groans and moans ..... But not this time !! Mike kept us all entertained from start to finish and now we are...

Touring London by bicycle is the absolute best way to "see the sights"! Our tour guide was friendly, entertaining and made our day so enjoyable! The bike ride was easy; nothing stressful or exhausting. At times, we walked our bikes through the crowded streets. It was easier than walking and much more fun than fighting the crowded buses and traffic.... More

Really enjoyed the bike tour as a way to sightsee London. Doing this over a walking tour allows you to see a lot more and have a great overview of some of the iconic sights of London as well as smaller things I don't think I would have seen otherwise. The tour is arranged very well so that for instance... More

Myself and my wife recently had a weekend break in London without the kids, when I mentioned to her that we were going on a "Grand Tour" of London by bike she laughed and told me that she would not be getting on a bike and cycling in busy London traffic. I managed to change her mind and we turned... More

My family (wife and kids, age 21 and 18) just got back to South Carolina from our vacation to Brussels and London last week. When I asked them what was the best thing we did on the trip, all replied the bike tour with Breakaway. Our tour guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. He took us... More

Easy meeting point at Waterloo Station. Fun tour that for the most part takes you off the tourist track down into the East End of London. Spitalfields area was our stop for lunch. Walked the streets off Brick Lane and found wonderful unspoilt architecture. Dwellings that have not been tarted up...if Mr Micawber had walked out of one of the... More

I recommend this tour as an exhilarating and intimate way to view the streets and sights of London. Due to morning drizzle, other people who had booked the tour withdrew, leaving me with the personal attention of the friendly guide, Mike. Mike was knowledgeable and amiable and was happy to adjust our itinerary based on some my earlier experiences in... More

On our maiden trip to London, we were excited to see London. We barely had half a day in London we wanted to make the most of it. Brakeaway bike tours seemed to have an excellent rating on Trip advisor. Almost 99% of them had given excellent reviews. The rest said "very good". I wondered how a person or company... More

First thoughts are that London would be too congested for a bike tour. Not a problem at all. This is do to our excellent guide named Mike. He kept us moving right along safely and efficiently. Having Mike share some interesting facts about the London sites is what makes tours like these worth it as well. My wife and I... More
