We are a family of 5, my children are 12, 16 and 23. We all thought the bike tour was amazingly good. Highly recommend this attraction is you are visiting London.

Really enjoyed the route, (specially along the "secret" canal!), and definitely learnt a lot about the less well known London! We got to see urban Art that I never would have known was there, much less the history behind it. Chris was a great guide, and I have already recommended this tour to my friends.

I did the Grand London Tour on a glorious sunny day. I would highly recommend this tour as a fun and interesting way to see London. Chris, our guide, had lots of interesting information on the various sites we visited. He also gave us a few tips on good pubs and places to eat in the area. I would definitely... More

This bike tour was so amazingly good. Our guide was Mike and he was patient, knowledgeable, energetic and funny. Even though it rained (and quite hard at times) we enjoyed this tour very much. They provided the option to cancel or refund before the tour started - because of the rain. We ended up at Westminster, the Thames, the London... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent bike tour of London with our guide Chris. We love to bike and whenever we are in a new city we try to catch a bike tour. It's a great way to see a city in a different way especially if you have fussy teenagers. The tour is not strenuous at all as London is... More

I generally don't like spending too much time doing very touristy stuff. I mean, I like seeing the sights of a city, but don't want to spend all day (or multiple days) doing it. That's why I loved this bike tour so much. It allowed me to see all the big sights over a couple hours in one fell swoop.... More

We have done bike tours in other cities -- Paris, Washington D.C., and Boston -- and this was our first in London. Even though my husband and I have been in London before, this was an excellent way to see parts of the city most visitors would not see. Chris and crew were very knowledgeable and easy-going, and we felt... More

My son and I did the "Secret London" tour in June. It was fabulous. Our guide was great and they keep the group small which is nice. We saw lots of things that we wouldn't have found otherwise. I strongly recommend this and suggest going early on your visit. The guide will give you a lot of tips of places... More

Martin is a great guide. Super caring and eloquent in British history. It was a heavily rainy day and Martin did a great job in terms of keeping us happy and warm (still wet though). He knows all the little secret alleys in London and that is what makes this tour fascinating. Strongly recommend, I didn't know he was an... More

My wife and I spent a few days in London a couple of weeks ago. We had the most amazing time taking the BrakeAway Tour. Something fresh, different, special. Our tour guides were kind, professional. The tour is a combination of the typical tour locations and hidden special London spots were you learn history about the city and special anecdotes.... More
