We loved the London bike tour. We took the tour on our first day in London (literally just off the plane) as a way to see the city and get the lay of the land - and that’s exactly what we got! It was a great macro view and allowed us to shake off some jet lag and jot down some places we wanted to visit again later in the trip. Our 2 children (ages 9 and 10) had a great time and other than them forgetting to stay on the left side of the road 1000 times…. I felt they were completely safe cycling through the city. Adam our tour guide was great! Lots of good stories and kept the tour moving!

Very interesting visit, recommended to get a general idea of the most important places and monuments in London. Very knowledgeable and nice guide. Recommended!
