It is the first time for my to visit London and the cycling tour gave me a brief picture of London with historical background. I am not quite interested in History, but the energitic your guide told us stories about London with humour. The cycling routine was well-designed. Though we had come across narrow roads and busy traffic, with the... More

Totally recommend this if you want to see all the main sights and the hidden parts of the city. Starts in the Southbank area which is perfect if you want to go to the London Eye or the London Dungeon after your tour! The guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. Our guide David was incredible and wasn't too bad at... More

Great way to see London. We covered most of Central London and my personal highlight must've been St Paul's Cathedral. Despite the cold weather, the guide's warm welcome made us feel immediately at easy. Highly recommended!

we booked the city by night tour and were lucky to have a dry, not so cold November evening for our ride. Our guide Georges was really nice. He took us to places where you don't go as a regular sightseeing tourist. Mainly the business district was impressive to me, but the other parts were also really nice. Georges stopped... More

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!

Sunday morning 12 October registered for the three hour central tour and were a little concerned that we were going on a foreign language tour but our fears were allayed when our guide Hugo (there's your bonus), fired up the trip in perfect English so that the mainly German group could hear and understand (we English are just lazy as...

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

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
