It is an ideal option if you have little time and want to know the essentials of London in a different, fun and practical way. They also teach you corners that go out of the ordinary ... we went with a friend who lives there and even for her it was surprising.

It was a super fun bike ride. Unfortunately we did this on our last day, so I recommend doing this on one of the first days! Our guide jordi has told and shown so much that we have to go back to London again.

Best day spent in London! Nadia was a great guide, leading a bunch of clueless novice riders through busy London. Saw so many sights that would have taken days on foot. So much fun!

We visited special places and sceneries with our guide Nadja. She also gave us good explanation about the history of the different buildings. Nadja was a perfect guide.

Very time riding on for london! Birgit was very good guide.
