Well done Hugo! You are awarded 5 stars by two middle aged teachers who even learnt something new about London on your informative and fun bike tour! Even Better If: You advise everyone to wear cycle helmets!

We did this tour because it was included in our London pass. Even if you don't have the pass, this is the tour to book! Really great to see the city from a bike...you can go so much further than you can walking. Rich, our tour guide did an excellent job, especially since he did a bilingual tour in English... More

Beautifull tour with a Dutch guide in London gave us a first impression of the town . It was really an awasome sightseeing. !!!! The bicycle company delated their tour start because we arrived to late due to some underground problems.. We thank them therefore.

We took a bike tour at 10.30am on Saturday morning. We picked this early start as we hoped to see the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace (as per the website). However, it is so crowded, particularly, on a Saturday it is impossible to get close. This did not spoil it for us but I would recommend the website... More

The sightseeing tour by bike was awesome, Rich showed us all the good places in London in such a short time! Visiting a city is so much better by bike: Faster than by foot and better for your health than by bus.Also, he explained well the background stories. I really recommend it - it was a very great experience, thank... More
