We were in London recently and decided to give Fat Tire Bike Tours a try since we'd been reading about them so much on TripAdvisor. It was absolutely worth it! Jamie, our guide, was a lot of fun and made sure we were safe on our bikes in some high traffic spots. We also used Fat Tire for two tours in Paris, and it was well worth it! The four hours flew by, and we got some great info on the city we would have not otherwise found in guide books.

My second fat tire tour - Royal London.

Met by two very enthusiasic guides just outside Queensbury underground - very easy to spot.

Bikes are easy to ride and even for those of us that are not used to riding bikes, the pace was easy and there are many stops to look at things and have a brief chat. Guides make the tour very informative and comical.

The tour lasts about 3.5 hours which sounds a long time but it flies by. You have 40 mins for lunch and I can recommend the Crypt in St Martin in the Fields.

Overall, I will do another fat tire tour when I return to London next time - maybe the Thames tour.

The only reason it didn't get a five stars was it rained heavily on the way back and the wind and rain spoiled my enjoyment !!!

Give it a go for a superb way to see London - away from the usual ' standard London tour fare '

We had read about this tour and decided last minute to give it a try. We were actually a little late but they set us up with bikes quickly and got us on our way. It took way longer to walk to the location from Mayfair than we thought it would. Our tour guide, Jamie, was great....funny and well informed. He also gets a gold star for being so patient with the children on the tour....well one child in particular. Anyway- the tour was called the Royal Tour and you get to bike through the parks. Most of the time it was traffic free but when we did have to cross a road or ride with traffic, Jamie told us exactly what to do. It was very easy and a great way to cover a lot of ground: more than you could walking. I highly recommend it and the biking is very easy.

Hands down my favourite city tour ever. The guide was so knowledgeable and the pace of the tour was perfect. I would take another Fat Tire bike tour in a heartbeat.

Everyone kept telling us to do the hop on hop off tours to see the city, but that really wasn't ideal for us. Fat Tire Bike Tours was such a better way to see the city. Our guide, Thomas, was funny and knew his facts about London to keep us engaged the entire ride. The routes were safe and scenic. We did this our first day in the city and then we knew where we wanted to go back later our travels if we were still interested. Our weather was great and it was nice to enjoy the fresh air instead of bus exhaust on busy London streets. If we had more time, I would have been willing to take a second longer tour with them too.
