Thanks to Vaughn, the South African instructor, we discovered a lot of things of this amazing city in a couple of hours! No risks, no tiredness ...just fun! We are from Spain and we did the tour in English, but we could understand him perfectly. Certainly, we'll repeat the experience ... But next time, the night tour :) Cris & Luis
As I am a Brit who spends a lot of time in London, and had a friend visiting from South America I needed a way to show her the sights of London but also keep my sanity and the bike tour not only achieved that but also gave us so much more. Firstly the bikes were prepared for every rider, a safety demonstrations given and then we set off around London. Our tour guide was called Olly, and was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. He delivered the tour withal focus around safety and other bike riders/cars but also with a smile on his face throughout. He chose prime locations to stop at, and delivered a knowledgable and charismatic talk at every point. So much so that I actually learnt a lot about certain parts of London, and also certain legends/sayings too. Everything seemed timed to perfection eg. Arriving at Buckingham Palace as the changing of the guards took place. The tour lasted around 3-4 hours and we had an absolutely fantastic time, the location is also fantastic as when you finished you have a choice of bars to grab a drink. I'd recommend this activity for anyone looking to see the sights of London, and would definitely recommend Olly the tour guide for anyone who want an energetic and fun tour that will leave you wanting more.
Loved the tour with the super enthousiastic guide, Olly! Safe guide, Great stories, unexpexted places,... we absolutely recommend!
Went on the ride as a family of 4 (mom-dad-2 kids of ages 12 and 13). It was fun, comfortable, safe. We would certainly recommend it to families as well. Our guide Olly was very funny and informative at the same time. Loved the experience. Thanks.
I have been to London several times before and seen many of the sights....but never on a bike! Such a nice way to cover a fair amount of ground and see things up close and from a different viewpoint. Plus you get some exercise - bonus! Recommended.
Riding the bike through London is a very good way to see most of the important places. The guide 'Charliene' was very good and enthusiastic, and with the dutch language understandable for our children of 13 and 11 year. We even saw the changing of the guard, arriving just in time to have place to see it. After these 3 hours we had a lot of information about Londen without reading a lot of books (what is less interesting for our kids)
Great tour with Felix! The best thing you can do, to have a quick overview of the city. Fast enough to use the time efficient, slow enough to see everything. In addition very good background information from the guide Felix. Great experience!!!
My twin 11-year-olds and I did the tour of Central London with Olly and it was phenomenal. It was so fun to bike through the streets of London and we covered a great deal of ground -- the Egyptian statues along the Thames, houses of parliament, changing of the guard, Covent Garden, the City of London, and more -- while learning a ton of history. Olly was entertaining enough to keep my twins engrossed and laughing -- they will forever remember why a 111 in cricket is called a Nelson -- and I walked away with a lot of tidbits, including the etymology of many common phrases, like steal my thunder, in the limelight, hangover, and more. I really can't think of a better way to see London.
This was a great tour. Educational and lots of fun! I highly recommend it!
We just finished the Christmas Lights Guided Bike tour. Our tour guide, Olly, was wonderful! Entertainingly informative & friendly! The route allowed us to see so many of the wonderful London neighborhoods and get into the residential parts of the city. Amazing!
