You will be provided with a bike and helmet, and escorted by a guide on a three hour tour through the capital, using mainly quieter streets and bike paths. The Central London Tour is a great overview of London's most famous sights. The West End Tour takes in the Party atmosphere of Soho and the shopping areas of Mayfair and Carnaby Street. The 2012 Games Tour takes you East to see the wonder of the Olympic Park and Venues, as well as Europe's largest shopping centre for lunch. For more freedom, the company also offers a bike hire service. Tours are offered daily in English, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese.To get up close to the sights, and have the freedom you want as a tourist, you must take a guided tour with London Bicycle Tour Company.

My family of four did the classic London tour yesterday. We had Oliver (Oli) as our guide. He was such a character and so entertaining.

Hello, Thanks for the great review! Olly is quite a favourite among our tour groups. We're glad too that you share our opinion about cycling in London! The growing amount of cycle superhighways have made it a fun and safe place to see by bike. We look forward to seeing you on the Old Town Tour soon! Cheers, Kiwi More

We had a great tour at Christmas. It was a good way to see the sights, see some great christmas light displays and such. The guides were friendly and easy to follow. Although the pedestrian traffic got a bit busy, it was manageable. Well worth it.

Ho ho ho! Thanks for the really positive review, and it's good to see that the Christmas spirit and the memory of our Lights Tour still lives on, even in April! London does get a bit busy with foot traffic at Christmas time, with last-minute shoppers and holiday makers clogging the streets, but glad to hear that you still enjoyed... More

I suggest to start your visit of London by a Bicycle tour, because after that you already have an idea of what you still want to see again, or put more time in other parts of the city!

We took this tour on a Sunday morning and it was perfect! The route was beautiful, and the guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The pace is not difficult, and the guide always made sure nobody got left behind. During our break we stopped in Covent Garden and had the chance to look through a few of the shops. Definitely worthwhile!

We've done these tours with this company about six times now. Several tours on offer. All equally as good as each other. Guides are incredibly knowledgeable You get to see places off the beaten track you wouldn't normally see and groups don't seem to be bigger that eight. Well worth spending the three hours cycling around London. Lots of stops... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
