a super way to spend a morning seeing the sights of London. Chris was an excellent guide & gave lots of interesting information as well as being good at answering lots of questions. Good value & a fun way to travel around a busy city.

“Even better than the first time..”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

Having completed the 'Secret London Tour' last year, we decided to complete the other tour that BrakeAway had to offer and were not disappointed. The Grand London Tour included some of the more 'well known' attractions but was no less interesting. Rather than the generic spiel at each location, the stops included some unusual knowledge about some of London's well known landmarks (have you ever noticed the world's smallest police station in Tralagar Square!?) and were told with humour and enthusiasm. The route was well planned and covered a lot of landmarks in what felt like a really short space of time.
Great to see you again Chris- no doubt we'll be back in the future to claim our free t-shirt! Keep up the good work!

“Awesome, Good value & Informative way to see London!”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

Spur of the moment decision to do a bike tour which I didnt regret one bit! Im from NZ and wanted to see more of London. Nice easy going pace and learnt heaps about the history of London's special areas/buildings. Would do it again with any friends and family that come to London to visit.

“An exhilarating way to experience London with an excellent tour guide.”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

If you think cycling around London is a crazy notion, then challenge that thought and book a tour with Chris of BrakeAway Bike Tours. He is an excellent guide and genial host as well as ensuring that you are completely safe whilst riding your bicycle. He has interesting snippets to share about various landmarks and points of interest during the tour. Think what tales you can regale when you say you've cycled over Tower Bridge at dusk, seen the eighteenth century coffee house frequented by the first stockbrokers and where tipping first began and even had Bridget Jones moment in Borough Market. Overall it is an excellent experience, so don't hesitate book a tour today!

“An unforgettable London experience.”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see a well-rounded mix of iconic sights and off-the-beaten-path gems from the saddle of a bike.

Chris was a lively and well-informed guide who showed great consideration for our safety and entertainment. The bike was a comfortable cruiser that should be prove easy-to-ride for just about anyone.

This ride made me feel like a local, even if only for a little while. And THAT is quite a feat for a tour of any kind :)
