Friendly, patient and unassuming, Jack, our guide, knew all the tricks for safe riding when we were in heavily populated areas. I followed his lead without fear. Enjoyed his humor and knowledge of historical places and palaces. The bikes are great and easy to ride. What a gas to ride through Covent Garden and over 2 bridges. And I have another tour before leaving. Highly recommended! Tonya from San Diego.

Excelent option for a tour in london.
You get to see a lot of the most important places. The bikes are great and very confortable and easy to drive. You see a lot and don't get tired like in those 3hs walking tours.
Jack is a very good guide and is very clear telling the stories related to the places you visit.

Very recommended.

Thank eszechet

I have tried cycle tours in London before and found this one to be far superior! Our party consisted of just three women and we booked upon a recommendation. We had an amazing day riding along The Thames with Jack on the incredibly comfortable, stylish Pashley bikes around parts of London we have never seen before. Jack made our tour fascinating and fun and has a great knowledge of London. The weather was torrential April showers but we donned waterproof ponchos and it didn't affect our enjoyment of the experience at all. Jack showed us the delights of Borough Market and took us to the best coffee shop in London and this was later followed by a relaxing pub lunch.(Great Ale!) The trip culminated in a brief tour of Greenwich and the newly refurbished Cutty Sark before riding back up The Thames on a Thames Clipper. We covered a distance of twelve miles in a leisurely manner and can't wait to do another one later in the year! We plan to do 26 miles next. Many thanks Jack. Tally Ho!

As à travelagent I will recommend this tour to everyone!! It was amazing!
You see so much more of London and it's easy going.
It was my boyfriends birthday and Jack was so kind that he decorate his bike with some balloons. My family was surprised because we didn't tell them about cycling thru London.
I want to thank Jack for the lovely afternoon....the tour and the information about London was great!!! Thank you Jack and Tally Ho!!!
