The Grand London bike tour was a fantastic way to see many of London's grand monuments and quirky corners in one fun energetic swoop on bikes. Our guide was outstanding: knowledgable and entertaining and he did an awesome job of keeping us all in tow. We warmly recommend this tour.

Had a quick stay in London and this was an awesome way to see a bunch of stuff in a few hours in a very enjoyable way. Our guide Chris was great from the start, we were running a bit late to get there due to some construction on the Underground, but he waited as long as he could to... More

I did both the Grand London Tour and the Secret London Tour in the same day. I went with Chris on both tours. Both tours were great! Chris was a great leader and provided fun information. The Grand London Tour covers most popular tourist sites (not the Tower of London or Tower Bridge). The Secret London Tour covers quite a... More

I was trying to decide how to get an overview of downtown London on the first day of a one week trip. Thinking of one of the open top tour buses, I came across this company on Tripadvisor and booked a 2 hour tour instead. Smart move that - we had a fantastic time. Our tour guide, Chris, had us...

Mike our tour guide was just so much fun. He... More

Smiling from start to finish. From being greeted at our designated meeting place to the returning the bikes the service was one of the friendliest I've experienced. Our guide, Henry, made a real effort with all guests and made sure everyone was comfortable, happy and safe throughout, as well as clearly knowing his facts. The afternoon city tour delivers an...

It was the best tour ever, for me, my 14 year old daughter and friend. We all enjoyed the tour very much, it was easy and exciting to see the major sights by bike. Chris was an excellent guide and with just the right amount of information and fun facts. Very friendly, very enjoyable. Next time, we will book the... More

I was looking for something a little different for my sister's hen weekend in London. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor I decided to make enquiries with BrakeAway Bike Tours. Having had lots of conversation with Chris I booked the Secret London Bike Tour (Thank you Chris!). The majority of the fellow Hens (8 in total) were enthusiastic at the... More

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide Ellie was very friendly, made sure everyone was safe at all times (as much as is possible on bikes in London traffic!) and was a wealth of interesting information.
