Felix was terrific -- a great tour guide who related the history of our sites with knowledge, wit and personality. I admit the London traffic both pedestrian and motor was intimating - it was very crowded on boxing day but Felix got us through safely. Would definitely chose him as a tour guide again but must admit I enjoyed the back streets more than the streets crowded with traffic.
My husband and I took this tour at the end of November . We were worried about the predictable bad weather, fortunately it only rained for a small portion of the trip. This is a wonderful way to see what a magical city London is. It really helped me get more familiar with the layout of the land . So different to experience it by bicycle. We were a small group, just five, including our very knowledgeable guide. Always be ready for rain, don't forget a waterproof jacket with a hood. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Excellent tour very interesting really enjoyed it, we were only three so it was very personal, ok I lived in london and still found it great fun the guide was very careful with us on the roads I would really recommend this to anyone
This tour was amazing!
Biking in London is definitely an experience! I was the only one booked for my day (probably due to it being a Monday), so it turned out to be a private tour. My guide was fun and knowledgeable, also watching out for my safety in rush hour traffic...he even had a flat tire and was apologetic, (so a bit of down time) but I walked around taking pics as he fixed his flat and he extended the trip. I highly recommend this trip to anyone, especially if you want some exercise as you sight see, learn about certain landmarks, and it's a great way to familiarize yourself with different areas of the city!
This trip I can really recommend as I enjoyed it a lot. The cycling was easy and we covered a large area and I realised how compact London is. The Xmas lights were a delight to see and the guide well informed ,
Cycling in London is always a highlight when visiting London.
Had a great time! Our guide, Felix, was very informative and friendly to all. If you're not confident on a bike or on London streets at night, this is probably not for you. You are moving most of the night and riding on some major roads. The lights were beautiful, but would have liked a bit of extra time to stop and take photos where possible.
Felix was an excellent guide. He was always conscience of the group and their safety, and he was very polite with pedestrians and drivers we encountered. On top of that, he was a fount of knowledge about London send it's neighborhoods!
This was a most interesting tour, visiting in a short time many more places than could have been visited on foot. The guide was expert at keeping the group, which included some quite inexperienced riders, together, in the very busy pre-Christmas crowds. His commentary at stopping points was, of necessity, brief but always relevant. Some of the bikes would have benefitted from some mechanical attention prior to the ride.
Take the tour before you see the sights. Our mistake was that we took the tour after we had been to many places, so we hadn't seen too many new things however riding the bike around town was fun. Because of the amount of traffic in the West End at night at Christmas, it can be a little tricky getting around, but the guide is skilled in keeping the group together and getting in and out of traffic. The guides were fun and it was a good time.
