Great way to hit the London highlights. The coordinator of this tour, Chris, was most excellent as was the tour guide Paul. We had issues getting to the tour on time (terrible London traffic). Give yourself plenty of time, maybe 2 hours, to get to the meeting place on time. Chris gave us options on how best to get there. We literally jumped out of our Uber and onto the train. We made our tour on time and had a great day!

The guide was very knowledgeable - very concerned for all participants, the tour group had 2 members that had difficulty on the bikes - one was not feeling well, so another tour guide came to a designated location to help facilitate a safe journey back to the bike facility. The tour continued on afterwards. Very good & fun.

Pat was an excellent guide and versed in history, general knowledge and humor. Unfortunately, weather was a factor and 1 degree temp with heavy rain/wintery mix dampened the ride. Definitely recommend this opportunity to see London and Westminster on a nice new bike.
