We enjoyed our personal tour with Ari. She knew her facts, restated some again when asked without hesitation. She took photos at the specific Beatle sites to help us retain the information and was very friendly. She even helped guide us back on the train.

This was a great bike tour, even for us locals! Guide was very friendly and had an abundance of London knowledge. Christmas lights were beautiful. Bikes were easy to ride and route not too strenuous. Definitely worth doing!

It was a very nice tour through a beautiful and cozy part of London. Saw a lot of beautiful Christmas lights and learned a lot from the very nice guide Jordy.

Excellent experience and happy we chose this tour.

Our guide was awesome and included all the sites we hoped to see. Also took our pics crossing Abbey Road which I’d always wanted to see. Well done!!

Olli was a great and funny guide :) the bikes were were good and the tour was interessant, the 3 hours passed too fast.
