It was nice adventure with the bike within the streets and sights of London. Our guide Stephen was fun, with the good humor and a lot of stories that you can not find them in the books. Me and my daughter had a great 3 hours bike tour.

This activity was really fun! Our guide (Yvonne) was excellent and my 3 kids and I loved the adventure and what we saw. We did the 3 hour tour and it went a little longer because the guide and group all seemed to be having a great time. I know if we ever come back my kids will want to... More

this was a tour on bicycle through London. The guide takes you on a 3 hour trip to see the most landmarks of the city. at every landmark the history is told by the guide, personally i liked the story about the hangings best. you can bring the camera to take pictures during the stops.

We had a lovely cycle trip around Central London. Cycling was a great way to see the capital. Our guide was a lovely girl who made the whole experience a joy. She was not British so her back ground knowledge of London was not extensive but she knew enough history to make the trip interesting. Would thoroughly recommend this.

Thank you Stephen for a memorable vacation. We managed to participate in over 15 site seeing tours in the 6 days my children and I were there. We by far agree that the bike tour was the best activity of our vacation. That includes visiting the palaces, which were amazing but we rated the bike tour our best activity.

The pace of the tour was just right and Hugo payed special attention to the younger riders to ensure their safety. The bikes were comfortable and in good working order. The tour was... More

Yvonne led a large group of 18 cyclists, having to modify the route to accommodate the road closures due to the Tour de France happening the same day. We still got to see the highlights of the city. She was very encouraging of the less skilled riders and was very informative. Her English, Spanish, and I would guess native German... More

I did this tour with tour guide Alissa and I can highly recommend it. The bike was easy to ride and a helmet was supplied. The route stayed mainly on quite roads and cycle paths with a minimum of traffic to deal with. Alissa guided us through those sections very competently. She was bright and friendly giving us interesting stories... More

I only can recommend to do sightseeing by bike. You can easily reach many hidden places and travel many miles without great effort. Especially together with teens it's really funny. No complaints about boredom etc. I booked the tour in German such that it was easier to follow and therefore much more interesting for my daugther. Special Thanks to our... More
