We made a point of going on the secret London tour with Brakeaway to start our visit so that we could get a bit of a lay-of-the-land. After the 6 hour plane ride and the 8 hour time zone change getting out and pedaling around was a great way to start. Two days later we followed up with the Grand... More

This tour was a great way to see some of the sites in a small amount of time. While it would take weeks to see all London has to offer, this short tour gives you a taste of what you might like to explore further. I also cannot say enough about the recommendation sheet they gave us after the tour.... More

We did both the grand london and the secret london bike tours and had a great time on each. The rides were well organised and informative and seemed surprising safe. A great time on each!

This was a fabulous way to experience the city at the beginning of our trip. The guide (Chris) was very knowledgeable and engaging. We enjoyed seeing some of the main sites of London, but we also saw several places we wouldn't have had we not been on the bike tour. Our tour was a group of 7 which was a... More

I decided to book this tour thanks to all the great reviews in here, and it certainly didn't disappoint. I took the Secret London Tour and for 3 and a half hours you're treated to some of the hidden gems London has to offer. I won't enter into details of the places we went to (that's the fun part of...

this was the funniest trip ever, scary but so funny. It made visiting London even more magical. the fella that rode the bike was great and he took us to Leicester Square from Covent Garden for £10 well worth it as it was so much fun

This tour was a great way to see the city when we first arrived. We saw a lot of the major highlights and the ride was not strenuous at all. Even the beginner biker could make it on this tour. I highly recommend it as our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The only thing I would have changed was that... More

Only minor complaint is that it would've been nice to stop a little longer at certain spots for photos.
