My friend and I arrived in London on a 23 hour layover before we continued on to our next destination. We wanted to see as much of London as we could in that time... and WOW did we ever! The Bike Tour was one of the best tour's we have ever done. Everything we wanted to see, we got to see, and SO much more. Riding a bike through the streets of London is such a neat way to see everything. You get to know the area quickly and its easy to get to everything ( along with special little things that you can't get to by car ). We did a private bike tour with Chris and did the Grand London Route along with some extra sights to see. We are so thankful for Chris and his company. The bikes were comfortable, no problems mechanically, and they were super cute and colourful! Chris met us at the train station, perfectly on time and the second we met him we knew we were going to get our money's worth. Chris had a great personality, he was very knowledgeable and had so much to share with us. It was so much more than just biking around town and being in "awe" of the sights we got to see. It was fun! we shared good laughs, got amazing pictures, and a perfect leg/butt workout. The route is an easy route, anyone would be capable of doing it, very flat and easy riding. Even when we were on the streets Chris was very aware of our surroundings and we always felt safe. We can't thank you enough Chris! You made our 23 hr stay in London the best we could have imagined. It was one of the highlights of our trip! Highly recommend it. (Chris also after our tour made sure we knew where we were going next -- We had plans to meet my cousin in town, and he let us borrow his phone to call and gave us perfect directions to meet my family). Even my cousin who is from London was amazed by all the sights we got to see in a 3-4 hour period of time. IF YOU ARE IN LONDON, DO THIS BIKE TOUR. I promise, you will love it! Thanks so much Chris & BrakeAway Bike Tours - Carly & Nadine (Canadian Girls) xx
We really loved our tour with BrakeAway. We did the Grand London Tour and saw absolutely all the sites. Our guide was fantastic and made sure everyone felt safe which was great for our 14 year old daughters. There were lots of interesting stops and our guide was very knowledgeable. He pitched it well for both our teenagers and the adults on the ride. The length of time was just right with a break in the middle for lunch at Covent Garden. We did it on our second day in London and we really got the layout of the inner city and that helped us work out which places we wanted to return to. I'm sure we saw lots of really cool places that we'd never have found on our own. We loved it so much we went on to do 3 more city cycle tours on our recent European trip. Would highly recommend BrakeAway and this tour. Thanks Chris.
