One of the best tours of my life!!!! Seriously would recommend to everyone except my racist grandpa because he can't bike. It's a problem wit his knees. Although, he would totally benefit from the diverse and educational topics. Things have not been great for him lately, his left knee has been acting up, but so have his political views. Only...

(I should say that I, because of my hostel's bad wifi, failed to book the tour in advance, but Chris saw my failed payment and e-mailed me and encoruraged me to just show up, and we worked it out on the spot, thank...

My mom and I booked a tour for our first day of an epic European adventure. It was well worth it especially since it was a slower season (Oct) and after one couple could not complete the ride we got a private tour! We got to see all of the highlights of the city up close and personal and covered... More

We have done bike tours in many cities and enjoyed all of them. Mike was fantastic! He guided 6 women( 1 was a novice rider) through heavy traffic, some scary cycle paths but mostly along quiet side streets to places we would never have found on our own. He knew the history and was able to make it interesting, irreverent... More

A bike tour is the best way to see London. You can cover lots of ground and see all the key sites - a great way to orientate yourself to this awesome city. Cycling in London is relatively safe and easy. Our guide Charlie was very relaxed and full of lots of humerous stories and anecdotes. We are a family... More

Having been to London before, we were not sure what to expect. Charlie took us on a very interesting and informative tour of London; interesting places we would never have seen without the help of Charlie. His knowledge of the sites was especially helpful. We highly recommend that you take this tour. You wont regret a moment!!

Great way to see London, better than the static bus rides. I did the tour with the teens and the tour was safe and interesting for both of them. The guide told interesting facts about the sites. Highly recommended.
