He had a great sense of humor and gave the trip an extra element of fun. Getting to the meeting place was... More

We normally take the London Bus tour with the family and I was a little afraid of how it would work out with my 8 year old in all the traffic, but this was entirely unfounded. We booked a private tour with Paul and we had the most fun driving with the bicycle through London, traffic was not at all... More

Found breakaway bikes on line. Was as bit difficult getting to them and was unsure when got to their offices/garage/repair shop?? Bikes were old and one kept getting a flat. Was worried I'd spent money unwisely. Then the tour began. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. We saw everything and went everywhere. Had a great time.

Our family has done bike tours in several major cities and the BrakeAway tour is one of the very best. Our guide showed us all the "big" sights as well as a number of lesser known gems which we would not have encountered otherwise. The pace and timing of the tour is top notch. We could not recommend this more... More

Our family of 4 (2 teenage sons) went on the "Grand Bike Tour of London," so I can't comment on the other tour they offer. The 1st time on this tour was in Sept 2013. When I planned my family vacation to England/France/Spain for Aug 2016, I booked this bike tour in London (and also bike tours in Paris and... More

We arrived in London the morning of Feb 6th on the overnight train from Glasgow. We planned to check into our flat and head straight to the tour. There was a mix-up with the driver and we were going to be late at the meeting point. We called and Chris informed us that he'd let our guide know and they'd... More

This was just a lovely way to spend a morning in central London. We had "done the sights" several times on previous visits but never quite like this. The narrative to this "Grand London" tour was supplied by our excellent guide, Charlie, who had a fascinating anecdote or two at every stop and really kept us entertained throughout. More importantly... More

Thanks BrakeAway Bike Tours for a brilliant day. We were a party of 3, my brother and my 14 years old son. Our guide couldn't have been better, we got everything from a Shakespeare recital, an Irish poem to a David Bowie song!! When it rained we were offered ponchos to wear. Cheers Paul👍 Would definitely recommend.

The tour guide was very friendly and cheerful enough to make me enjoy the tour. That's why I went around London for about 4 hours but I did not feel that tired! What I liked most was the things that they only have ; the smallest police station and the oldest wig store! I think that makes this tour special... More
