If you're looking to get off the beaten track of the usual tourist crowds then I can't recommend this enough! It helped that it was an amazing day as well and it was such a chilled way of seeing some fantastic places. Great tour guide as well! For only £24 per person as well for 3/4hrs worth of a tour, bargain.

Great way to see London

We really enjoyed our tour. Clear instructions on where and when to meet up. Most of the time cycling on quite roads but need to be mindful that you are cycling in the capital so it will be busy at times. Our teenagers ( aged 16 and 14) loved it as did we. Got to see lots of historical sites as well as many places of interest. Highlights were pakora on Brick Lane and Tower Bridge. Would truly recommend this.
