Even in Dutch language possible and very easy and relaxing bike tour. Organisation can be improved a little more. headphones for the tourists, speaking to the toursist and not with the mouth away from them, more electric bikes maybe for more difficult bikers, and leaving on time. never the less I recommend this Tour to everybody.

Went on a great 3 hour cycle tour of London and its festive lights last night 28/12/15 and really enjoyed it! Our guide Charliene was great fun, informative and confident. Thought is was good value for money and would definitely recommend it.

We had an incredible tour with Olly!! He was informative and had contagious enthusiasm. The tour was well paced and not too difficult for us--as he told us, London has some of the slowest traffic in the world that averages 10 mph, so we had no trouble keeping up and weren't worried about crossing traffic when necessary. Even with a... More

One of our best experiences in London was the Chritmas Lights Bicycle tour. The weather was chilly as you woukd expect and there was a chance of rain, but all of that did not stop us loving the tour. The lights were a great sideshow, but the quality and humor if the guide and just cycling around London in a... More

The tour was fun, slow-paced and hit everything you'd want to see in 3.5 hours. Make sure you ask for Ollie as your guide, he is funny and informative and acts out all his stories. 100% worth it!

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.
