“OK but was expecting more after all the great reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Have done similar bike tours in other major cities and I love the concept. It's a great way to see the city and to hopefully learn a thing or two along the way. So much depends on the particular guide you get. I found our guide to be very polite and attentive but wanted to hear more detail on the sights we were seeing. At times I felt like he was just there to make sure we didn't get lost. Wasn't a bad way to see London, just would love to hear more stories and tales of the place.

“Great way to see London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Would do this tour again! A great way to hit all the fine points of the city as well as many back street/ally sights only an insider would know. Chris is a great guide!

“Get on this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

My wife and I have been in London for nearly a month seeing and exploring lots of weird and quirky aspects of this great city. Brake Away Tours was a nice addition to our holiday. Chris really gave us a great insight into some of the less known but equally beautiful aspects of London. Twisting through back streets, watching canals and seeing some of London's sights from a new angle. Loved this 5 stars. Riding a bike in any city can be crazy, but this is a safe and inexpensive way to see London. Stopped at a lovely pub, just off Brick Lane before heading out for part two of the ride.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I booked this bike tour as part of a birthday surprise for my Canadian husband despite not ever having attempted cycling in London. I was a little apprehensive initially because it was meant to be a rainy morning but decided to go for it anyway. I'm so glad I did. The weather was much better than anticipated and it was so much fun. Chris is a great tour guide and kept us entertained throughout. My husband loved it too. Can't wait to book my next bike tour - there's no better way to see the city. It's a must do!

“GREAT IDEA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Would completely do this again and again! Even though I had lived in London, I had never seen some of the back gardens and alleyways where this wonderful tour took us! I felt completely safe and loved every minute of this bike tour!
