Bike tour is a really cool way to see London. You get to cover more distance than on foot, while being “outside” and taking in the ambiance of the gorgeous city of London; a delight for the senses! We took the tour on a summer weekend morning. The tour meets outside the entrance to platforms 1 & 2 inside Waterloo... More

My daughter (13) and I decided to do the bike tour after reading about it on TA. We are so glad that we did. Everything from the initial meet point, to the riding, commentary, bikes, length of time, pace of the ride and any other variables were perfect. Our guide Mike was funny and very knowledgeable - a pro at... More

We made a quick stop in London on the way to Italy for our Honeymoon - we did not have much time (just one full day) and the bike tour was a wonderful way to experience London. It gave us a great overview of the city and it's history without being overwhelming. Martin gave my husband a few personal recommendations... More

Fantastic company, Really well organised and incredibly fun. would (and have) recommend this to anyone visiting London or even those who live here. Our tour guide Martin was a brilliant, we loved some of the weird and wonderful facts he had to share. We cannot wait to do the 'secret bike tour' in the summer.

I know London through work trips but not so familiar with the main attractions. This tour was an ideal and fun way of learning more and showing my (cycling crazy) son the big city. Chris and Martin were great too and made us feel very welcome. Loved seeing some of the little back streets and hearing about the history. Definitely... More

The "Secret Bike Tour" was a fantastic way to see many different parts of London. We were a group of 13 students, for some it was the first visit to London. We saw many great attractions but also some "secret treasures" in London. Mike was a fantastic tour guide who had lots of interesting and amusing stories to tell. It... More

This tour was a fantastic way to see some major sites in London! I was a bit overwhelmed by the size and sheer amount of sites to see in London but this bike tour was the perfect way to see a lot, learn a lot, and have tons of fun along the way! We were a group of four who... More

Me and my 13 year old son had a great Sunday ride with Mike in chilly February. As we were the only 2 persons on the ride Mike offered us to do the "Secret Tour" has he already knew that I had contacted the office about that tour but the company doesn´t start that specific tour until later in February....
