This was an excellent way to see London, particularly since this was our first visit. Our guide, Eldrid, was knowledgeable, super fun and expert at setting a nice pace while keeping us safe through the crazy old city streets. The bikes are cushy and easy to ride. The group size was 12 - very nice. 3-1/2 hrs was long on... More

Up close and personal is a great way to see London! A group of 10 went on a 3 hour bike tour complete with London history and unusual facts. I origanally had booked a tour with my daughters and my mother. Too much starting and stopping in busy traffic for my mom ; so they were kind enough to take... More

Thanks Chris and Mike. You guys were great. We got a 4 person private bike ride and it was well worth the small extra amount for our tour. Very informative and fun. Our tour guide had a great sense of humor and knowledge of the city. Would definitely do this tour again. We did the royal tour. Try the underground... More

The Grand Tour with Mike was a great overview for the beginning of our trip, allowing us to see a number of major landmarks, neat lesser-known spots and then decide on places to revisit in more depth. Mike was a fantastic guide - down-to-earth, wonderful sense of humor, knowledgable and great at navigating us safely through busy streets. Highly recommended!

We booked a tour but then couldn't take it due to a scheduling conflict. Since we cancelled about a month before our scheduled tour, BrakeAway Bike Tours cheerfully refunded our money. Then, when I had a question about the reservation later, Chris called me in the US to talk to me about it! What fantastic customer service! We will definitely... More

Definitely the best part of our trip! We took the secret London tour and biked along ways we both had and hadn’t been to, all the time enjoying London in a new way. The group was small and the guide good-humored, we stopped every now and again for some anecdotes and a 25 min break at Brick Lane, but mostly... More

Had a great guided bicycle trip with a friend through London this way! Faster than a pedestrian, but slow enough to enjoy the beauty of various highlights known and less well known..interesting facts I could use later on back in Holland to impress my friends. Thanks again, for making my city trip complete.

Myself and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the tour, our guide was very knowledgable and informative. He took us to places that we wouldn't have visited on our own. I was a bit nervous starting out but the nerves soon disappeared under the excellent supervision of our guide. I would certainly recommend the trip and would difinately do it again
