My husband and I looked for something to do with our 3 teenage kids,18,16 and 14 on the first day of half term, 18th February and came across this compnay. Well all I can say is it was fantastic!! We had a brilliant afternoon and the kids are still talking about it now! It was nice to find something different to do with teenagers. We met Chris at Waterloo station and after a short walk to his office, we were away on what he calls the Secret London Tour. We didn't know what to expect but the freedom of being able to ride around london to parts we would never have seen was great. Chris is a real expert very friendly and chatted to our kids along the way. The sights were fabulous especially riding over Tower bridge at dusk, it was beautiful. St Katherines Dock, The Hidden canal, brick Lane, the market area where they filmed a seen from harry Potter and many more. A great value day out and we will definately be doing the grand London tour with Chris again.

We did the biketour already in New York and Barcelona.This time we did it with our children and it was again wunderfull.Best way to get to know London.The bikes are new and easy to drive and cris is a nice guy and well informed about the past and future of London.We did the Grand-tour(if you visit London for the first time it is the best tour to get to know the centre) and the next time we will visit London we will do the Secret-tour for sure.Thanks Cris

A friend of mine visited me in London and we both knew the city already. So we wanted to do another kind of sightseeing trip through London - best choice so far! It was a great trip where you see London's best places and areas you usually don't see as a tourist! Chris gave us an amazing insight into another site of the city! Thanks for that!

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.

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!
