Did this tour in early May. Despite the hazards of Central London, guide Mike did a good job of keeping us safe. A great way to see the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace (arrived just in time to see the changing of the guard), Trafalgar Square, Covent Gardens and Saint Paul.

A great way to see central London. Our guide, Matt was very knowledgeable with quirky facts about it's well and lesser-known sites. We had some difficulty finding the meeting place and they rang us on international number. A brilliant way to spend a morning and/or afternoon in London!

We had a great time on this tour. The tour guide, Mike kept us safe and led us through streets that weren't so busy. I never felt unsafe. It was 3-4 hours long and I really enjoyed seeing the sights from a bicycle and touring the city that way. We burned some calories and stopped at a little pub for... More

This was my second tour, done as a solo during down time on a business trip. This time I did the Secret London tour in the afternoon. As last time, it was great. Tour guide is hilarious, and at the same time, very concerned about everyone's safety. It's a pretty good workout but not overly demanding. At 22 pounds, this... More

We went to London for the first time and were just overwhelmed with what to do and where to start. After looking at the reviews of BrakeAway Bike Tours it was a must do. We ended up getting lucky and had our tour on VE Day. It turned out to be a great sunny day and we had the extra... More

My sis & I thoroughly enjoyed our tour & our guide Chris. It felt great to just be on a bike instead of walking. Going over Tower Bridge was a highlight! Being Mountain Bikers, the bikes were a little weird at first but comfortable after a few minutes. A little down time in the middle to explore Brick St. Saw... More

I booked this tour for my husbands 50th birthday. We booked a private tour for us and our teenage kids. It was just brilliant. The sun shone and our guide Matt was fun, interesting and informative. He tailored the tour to suit us as we had seen many sights already and he showed us back streets and things we had... More

The bikes were incredibly comfortable! I never felt like I was unable to continue biking, as we took a few breaks and never went too quickly. Pedestrians were very aware of the bicyclists so that was never a scare either. As well, I had such a fun time on this little adventure with our tour guide Chris! He was so... More
