Lovely gentle cycle through (quieter than normal) central London. Catherine our guide made those less experienced feel super safe, and you see far more than on foot! (and get an idea of how it all fits together!) Excellent fun.

I hesitantly booked a bike tour for my family visit recently and it ended up being the best tourist activity we did - even in the cold drizzly weather. Nadja was super knowledgeable and friendly! It ended up being more of a private tour as it was just my family and I, which
