Took bike tour today with Matthew. Very nice, intelligent chap. It was a real winner of a tour, saw places i had never seen after many visits to the city and tour buses. He only takes cash, sadly i had but 5pds and he took it. Matthew I promise i'll pay you back next time in London.

Great bike tour - we did the East End Tour having previously done the sites of London tour and it was excellent way to see the city. The tour guide Matthew was great and took us on the tour despite the torrential rain!

I have to agree with the other reviews. I saw them before taking the tour and thought there can always be difference in opinions.
This was really a good way to see London. Biking in the city was easier than I tought. And you really do see a lot while riding on the bike. By foot you wouldn't cover a fraction of the places without running around.
The guiding part was perfect. Enough knowledge and interaction about what you like to see/hear.
I have taken bus tours in citys before and this won 100:1

I got a private tour from Matthew because I was the only person signed up. Glad he was willing to do it anyways! I did the East end tour which is definitely a side of London that tourists do not usually see. The traffic was manageable, but that's just me because others who are not accustomed to city biking may have some rather nerve-wracking moments. I must say the sights were more on the "gee that's interesting" rather than "wow, that's amazing". Just a word of caution on what to expect so you don't get disappointed. There was a 25 minute break for lunch during which you're on your own to pick a restaurant. Overall I was quite pleased with the experience. I would only recommend it to people who have already seen enough of the touristy west side of London.

I've discovered the best way to see a city is on a bike tour and this one did not let us down. Mathew kept us enthralled with different stories and took us to places that no bus can get to. Thoroughly enjoyed it & would highly recommended this company. cheers Julie
