Booked as a suprise for my mother's belated 70th birthday. We really enjoyed the whole experience and found our guide Pepe friendly fun and informative. There was a slight change to the route due to London bridge being closed but it didn't make any difference to the experience, We chose to sit on upper open air deck and was glad we dressed warm as it was cold, but thankfully dry. It was great experiencing the sights of London during the daylight but equally as lovely seeing it all lit up in the late afternoon. The river cruise was also great and interesting to see London from a different angle, again Jack was a great guide on the boat too. Again we braved the top deck which was open air and weren't disappointed. It did appear lovely and warm in the lower deck which would suit some people more. The afternoon tea at Harrods consisted of a glass of prosecco, two scones clotted cream and a pot of tea finished the tour off perfectly. Great tour and amazing value for money! 5* experience.

This was a great bike tour, even for us locals! Guide was very friendly and had an abundance of London knowledge. Christmas lights were beautiful. Bikes were easy to ride and route not too strenuous. Definitely worth doing!

Would highly recommend the trip well worth the money , enjoyed the open top bus tour and then the river cruise was fantastic and then finishing off with afternoon tea at Harrods . Our tour guide Frank was fantastic
