We had a great tour at Christmas. It was a good way to see the sights, see some great christmas light displays and such. The guides were friendly and easy to follow. Although the pedestrian traffic got a bit busy, it was manageable. Well worth it.

I suggest to start your visit of London by a Bicycle tour, because after that you already have an idea of what you still want to see again, or put more time in other parts of the city!

On this far the coldest day of the year I partook on the Classic Tour and was absolutely delighted with the experience from start to finish.

We took this tour on a Sunday morning and it was perfect! The route was beautiful, and the guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The pace is not difficult, and the guide always made sure nobody got left behind. During our break we stopped in Covent Garden and had the chance to look through a few of the shops. Definitely worthwhile!

We've done these tours with this company about six times now. Several tours on offer. All equally as good as each other. Guides are incredibly knowledgeable You get to see places off the beaten track you wouldn't normally see and groups don't seem to be bigger that eight. Well worth spending the three hours cycling around London. Lots of stops... More

Don't miss this tour. It's a great way to see London. You cover a lot more ground that when walking. I really enjoyed the tour guide who would point out lots of history and factoids whenever we'd stop. I hadn't been on a bike in about a year and found the pace to be fairly easy, but there were numerous... More

We (me and my sisters, 26,25,15) booked a bicycletour in Londen with a Dutch guide. The Dutch guide was sick, so we joined the group with an English guide.

What a shame - the Christmas Lights tour could have been so much better. It took us 90 mins to get to anything resembling Xmas lights and the tour guide was rambling about noting to what seemed like fill time. What was even more strange was that he did not stop at the obvious places for pictures of the Christmas... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
