Would DEFINITELY recommend this Ike tour. The staff is awesome, the information fabulous! Our tour guide, Josh, added so much humour to the stories that I was busting up most of the time. Anyway, we always felt safe...even when doing some dodgy maneuvers through traffic. Would recommend this the first or second day of your stay, as it helps get a feel for the city and where everything is in relation to each other. It also allows you to see a lot in the 4 hours during the tour, and gives you enough exposure that you can better decide which attractions you'd like to visit again on your own time. They also plan the tour to take you past Buckingham Palace in time to see the changing of the guard. Added bonus! Anyway, we liked this tour so much that we booked one in Paris as well. And don't be fooled by their office/garage...it may seem like a sketchy place to be stationed out of but it is not a reflection on the quality of the tour!

This is a great tour for those freshly touched down in London. We felt it was well organized, a fair pace, informative and overall very professional.

My husband and I took the tour on a Sunday and it was a great day! The sun was shining so it was the perfect day for a bike ride. We only had a small amount of time to see London so we thought taking this bike tour would be a good way to get started and hit the highlights. We were right! We had a fantastic time! Max was our guide and he was great! Very friendly and knowledgeable about London. It was neat to see the highlights and get a bit of history along with it. The stories Max shared with us were very interesting! We stopped for lunch and Max recommended a great English Pub where we had the best fish and chips of our trip! I have nothing negative to say about the tour. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone!

We had 3 days in London with our two teenagers, 15 and 17. We wanted a fun way to start the trip, and get an overview of London. This tour is genius. The most famous of London's Royal Parks are connected: Kensington, Hyde, Green and St. James. Throughout the parks, and surrounding them on their borders are the fantastic sites of London: Bukingham Palace, Kensington Palace, the Princess Diana Memorial, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, and so much more. The Fat Tire company came up with the brilliant idea of riding bikes through the middle of it all, from site to site, while enjoying a ride through some of the loveliest parks in Europe. Best on a Saturday or Sunday when the parks are closed to automobile traffic.

Had a great day in the sunshine! Our guide Jamie was very informative and friendly, saw lots and just had fun on the bikes. Very safe (very little on road), great day out!
