My wife enjoyed a very casual (i.e. anyone with legs can do it!) bicycle tour with this company. It was roughly 4 hours long and our lovely guide Emma took us around to many of the great sights in South and Central London. (The Embankement, Buckingham Palace, St. Pauls, etc). She was very informative, really knew her history, and was... More

We took the Central London tour with Emma on Saturday Mar 28th. Had a great time, perfect balance of riding and information. Emma is a wealth of information, and very entertaining too. Would highly recommend this activity. Riding is very easy and safe too. Small group makes it a very enjoyable tour. Well done Emma!

We had a great guide named David! David took us on a gentle ride around central London. You only need to be competent on a bicycle to be able to take part. The ride gives a great overview of the main sights of London. It was great for my wife, who had not been to London, to get her bearings... More

My husband and I recently went on the central tour with Dominic. The tour was included with our London museum pass. We ended up being the only two people who showed up so we got a private tour of the city! Dominic was very informative and happy to answer all our questions. We learned a lot of interesting history and... More

This tour was great fun and gave out a lot of information. Our guides confidence got us all through the traffic moments. It was a great way to see a lot of the sites in a short time to help plan our trip.

My young adult children and I really enjoyed the bike tour. Our tour guide (Dominic) was great. He was informative about the areas we visited and gave us tips on when to visit other attractions. Although you are biking through the busy streets of London, our guide made sure we were aware of the upcoming intersections and how to cross... More

We booked a "Mystery Tour", that is a tour that will take you off the beaten track to secret gems in London, for our group of six adults. We wanted to be surprised! And the tour delivered what we expected, it really gave us a chance to experience unknown sides of a city that some of us already knew quite... More

I had a trip with Emma in a small gruppe which was very nice. We got to see a lot of small and big attractions and she knows a lot London history. The bikes and information prior to the trip was also good.

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.
