I did the Grand Bike Tour of London and really enjoyed seeing things I've never seen before. I've lived in the UK in the past (for ten years) and visited London many, many times. But the tour did a good job of showing you the classic items but always with a different angle or included things nearby that were off... More

Probably the highlight of our trip to London. Booking was easy, meeting up at Waterloo straightforward, the bikes were easy to get the hang of, our guide was great. My 14 year old daughter who isn't enthusiastic about biking also loved it. Would highly recommend the tour.

BrakeAway Bike Tours was kind enough to give us a call and tell us where to meet them the morning of the tour. The bike's they provided were comfortable, in great condition, and easy to ride. Our tour guide, Chris, was incredible! The 4 hours of the tour went by very quickly and at the end you realise you've covered... More

During mid-term my wife , son and myself had a most amazing cycle tour of London. The guide was very knowledgeable on the history of London without been boring and had a wonderful sense of humour. The tour was the highlight of our visit to London and I would strongly recomment BreakAway Bike Tours

Very fun and informative tour! Mostly back roads, but some roads were very busy and a little scary if you are not a seasoned bike rider. Great tour and guide! Definitely covers more ground than walking!

Ever since taking a bike tour in Munich when I studied abroad in college, I've made it a point to use bike tours in many other cities when I travel. It's always a great way to start off a vacation. You get a nice overview of everything and can always go back for a more detailed visit of the sites... More

What a fantastic way to see the sites of London! We initially booked a large group bike tour but later realized that we wouldn't be able to make the scheduled time. Chris was very accommodating for us and our schedule and allowed us to change to a private tour at a later time. Dred made the meeting spot easy for... More

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've never before done a bike tour, but I can't imagine it getting any better than this! (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...
