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!

I really recommend it - it was a very great experience, thank... More

Our tour the 17th of august 2014 started at Gabriel's Wharf with an arrogant receptionist, who didn't feel like answering our questions fully and almost rolled his eyes at us for asking about the tour. But luckily that changed! Our guide's name was Alissa, and she was the complete opposite of the receptionist: happy, enthusiastic and informative. During our 3... More
