    Fantastic way to get to know famous and unknown London. You come to places you would otherwise never get to yourself. Or something you've never heard of before but that is more than worthwhile. Especially because of the interesting facts that are told about it! Top recommended !! Our kids (11 and 15 yrs) loved it !!

    A great opportunity to actively experience London.

    We saw all of the usual tourist attractions but we took routes that often led us through side streets, old residential areas and empty streets. The ride was leisurely and there was a lot to see, which you wouldn't be able to see from a bus. The ride was 3 hours long, with a half-hour break at Covent Garden.

    This was a great experience.

    Great touR for inexperienced riders. Tour guIde was terrific and as there were only seven in the group we were treated to a very personalized tour. We were taken to most of the well known London landmarks and it was not rushed. We are in our fifties and we did not find it hard to handle the cycling. Highly recommended!!!
