Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ginette is amazing. Tour is convenient, well organized, and informative. Basically, you show up and go, which makes it easy for those of us visiting from another country. Tour is beautiful and Ginette shares history, trivia, and stories throughout. Great way to see something different. Highly recommend.

We did the bike to Hampton from Richmond and absolutely loved it. This was one of our top activities we did on a 10 day trip. Beautiful beautiful beautiful - if I could have bottled the day I would have. Highly recommend morning bike to Hampton, tour Hampton, then take a boat ride back to Richmond as a five star way to spend the day. My 11 year old and I loved every minute, and was only sorry my husband had food poisoning and couldn’t make it…

We had a fabulous morning biking along the Thames to Hampton Court Palace - we were the only people booked so our group tour became a private tour! Ginette was great company, very knowledgeable and took care for our safety (even though an easy ride) and was very considerate of pedestrians and other riders along the river. We had a fabulous morning - highly recommend! Excellent morning out and a beautiful ride!

Ginette is a suburb guide who helped me plan the perfect day out & about throughout the royal parks. I booked a bespoke tour since I wanted to go a bit further than the 5-10 mile rides, and she was able to design a route that hit the distance goal I wanted (>25 miles) while also keeping us off busy streets to make the ride a relaxing one. I will definitely be booking with The Merry Pedaller when I visit London next, and this time we'll be doing the hill in Richmond Park!

Once again, Ginette is a joy to spend a day with and the longer ride was the highlight of my trip. 10/10, highly recommend.

We did a half day ride from Richmond to Hampton Court. We had a group of seven riders ranging in age from nine to fifties. Ginette had the right equipment for all of us and created a great experience for all ages. We loved the tidbits of history and nature that she shared. She had the ride well-planned out with the appropriate breaks and food stops. Thanks for a great day out!

Ginette is a gem! I had a private tour booked with her and we did about 50K around the parks and by the River Thames. She provided some history of the area and could have provided more if wanted. We were out riding on a hot day but had plenty of places where it was shady and breezy to ride and there were many suggested stops for cold drinks or a picnic lunch under a tree near a mother duck and her ducklings. We saw plenty of varieties of deer as well, even some cooling off in the water whilst eating leaves off a tree. It was a nice break from the crowds in Central London. If you're looking for a way to get a bit of exercise and see a different part of the area, book a bike tour with Ginette!

The weather was perfect, Richmond Park was beautiful, and Ginette was an excellent guide. She made everything easy for us, from being flexible with start and end to times to suggesting a restaurant that was one of the highlights of our time in London. Thank you, ToursbyLocals, and thank you, Ginette!

Thoroughly enjoyed our day! Ginette knows her stuff and gave us a good introduction to Richmond and its place in British history. Pace was easy/comfortable, and through beautiful parkland or along the canals. Toilet stops and the chance to pick our own picnic lunch were also appreciated.

We were fortunate to combine the hike tour with an event at the palace, so it really was a fabulous day!
