This is a great way to see some royal spots and learn a bit about the history involved. Our tour guide, Matt, was nothing short of fantastic. Would absolutely recommend without reservation.

We took a three hour tour with this fun-loving bike-tour company (It's our third city with them and fourth tour!) We chose to take the Royal London Bike Tour. Even though we had visited London several times before, we still explored/learned new areas and found out novel stories about Great Britain. The tour leader (a charming young man from Spain who was very knowledgeable and entertaining was conducting his last tour in London!) took us through remote parts of London's Hyde Park, St. James's Park, Regents' Park, passing many palaces, monuments and buildings. For lunch, we took 45 minutes out of our ride at Leicester Square (on our own) which was enjoyable on a very sunny fall afternoon. Stopping from time to time for amusing historical stories about the royals, the heroes depicted by the statues and the buildings themselves made this a fun, unique and enlightening way to see London from a different perspective. We highly recommend this company to anyone seeking a different slant on being a tourist.......well worth the effort to arrange this type of tour and anyone who knows how to bike ride is able to keep up with this level of bike-riding, even a family with children from about 8 or 9 up. Enjoy!

We loved it, and I recommend these tours to everybody who is looking for a different experience.

My son of 18 was set to go off round the world but before he did he wanted to see more of London and the Fat tire bike tour attracted us. Jamie, our guide for the day, was absolutely fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for him. With the age range on our tour from 6 to middle aged, we were all catered for. At no time did any age range suffer from the other end of the spectrum. I was concerned my 18 year old would find it too tame but not at all, we both had a fun, memorable day and are looking forward to another Fat tire bike tour as soon as he returns from his gap year. Jamie allowed us plenty of time to look at the sights and as such the tour lasted nearly 5 hours from start to finish including lunch break - what a great day out for £20 per adult! Highly recommend, as great fun and good value for money and a lovely way to see the sights. Thank you Jamie and good luck with the band.

I did a Fat Tire bike tour in Berlin a couple of summers ago and had so much fun that when our travels brought us to London, I knew I wanted to see the city with you guys. I love the history and the stories told by the guides. I love being outdoors instead of on a bus looking outwards. I love having a guide who leads us to so many interesting sights in such a short amount of time. Along with the stories, I got good recommendations for things to do after the tour, including the Churchill Wars Rooms Museum, which was also a favorite.
From a practical stand point, you do a good job of breaking people down into manageable groups and handling slower riders. Our London tour had a young Japanese boy who had a hard time keeping up and the guide did a good job of letting the parents know what they could do to keep their child safe and with the group.
Good job, Fat Tire! Hope to ride with you again in another city soon!
