We visited London with a groep of friends. We can only advise people to visit London by bike. A fast and enjoyable way to see London in a limited timeframe. We got the same tip up front and can only confirm :) The host of the visit, Mike, was the perfect host by not only guiding us through the city... More

My friend and I arrived in London on a 23 hour layover before we continued on to our next destination. We wanted to see as much of London as we could in that time... and WOW did we ever! The Bike Tour was one of the best tour's we have ever done. Everything we wanted to see, we got to... More

We really loved our tour with BrakeAway. We did the Grand London Tour and saw absolutely all the sites. Our guide was fantastic and made sure everyone felt safe which was great for our 14 year old daughters. There were lots of interesting stops and our guide was very knowledgeable. He pitched it well for both our teenagers and the... More

Did the Grand London tour with the very friendly, enthusiastic and accomodating guide, Mike and a bunch of lovely people on a thankfully sunny and cool late November day. He brought us to the big sights but also the littler offbeat ones with interesting stories, that we wouldn't have known even if we passed it every day. It was a... More

We had a personal tour with Breakaway Bike Tours, since our schedule didn't line up with their usual trip times, and it was fantastic. Worth every penny - we loved the stories our guide told, and it's a great way to see the sites in a timely and fun manner. One of the best things we did on our trip!

They are very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the city and take pride in what they do. It's a fantastic way to see the main sights in London. I would HIGHLY recommend... More

We would highly recommend this bike tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic, and seemed to truly enjoy taking us through London. He was very concerned with everyones safety and made sure that we were all accounted for. If ever in London again, we will surely do the Secret Tour. We agree with all of the positive reviews for...

We loved our tour with BrakeAway! Our guide, Mike, was a fantastic communicator. He gave clear instructions and provided interesting commentary at each of our stops. Although some reviewers have mentioned that this tour is even suitable for participants who don't have much biking experience, I would disagree. Although we often took pathways and back streets, there were also numerous... More

If you have very little time and would like to see all of London's main attractions this is the best way to do it. Saved us a lot of time and gave us plenty of time afterwards to wander the city on our own. My fiance and I thoroughly enjoyed the day riding through London despite the slightly windy and... More

I chose this tour based on other Tripadvisor reviews and I can say that we were NOT disappointed. Our tour guide, Martin, was very knowledgeable and made sure we stopped at all the important places!! Also very important, he kept us on time. We were able to catch the changing of the guard and a very rare appearance of the... More
