In the morning, meet your local guide in central London and take off on a leisurely bike tour of the city’s ever-evolving Thames riverfront. Due to the small group format, your guide will design a custom itinerary that suits the group based on preference and ability. Whatever path you take, you’ll see key attractions like Big Ben, the London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Tower of London.

After cruising through South Bank, you’ll stop at the bustling and eclectic Borough Market. Aside from offering a cacophony of artisanal food products and beautiful produce, this market is a testimony to London’s multicultural landscape. For lunch, grab some crispy fish and chips, a Damascean falafel wrap or a pot of steaming hot noodles with custom toppings (own expense).

Next, hop back on your bike to work off your hearty lunch. Head to the iconic Tower Bridge – a masterpiece of Victorian engineering. As you cross the bridge into London’s financial district, admire sweeping river views that feature a juxtaposition of old London architecture and modern constructions like the Shard, a 95-story pyramid of glass.

Along the way, enjoy a storied narrative from your guide about the major events – from plagues and wars to catastrophic fires – that have evolved the cityscape.  Pass the Monument to the Great Fire of 1666 and the remarkably beautiful Leadenhall Market, the setting of many feature films including Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Then pedal over the London Bridge back to Southwark, where your tour ends by mid-afternoon.

Not as advertised

This was a very poor experience. There was little biking, the equipment was poor and most of all the leader Matthew was terrible. We rode in crowds with hoards of people, not wise. The leader was in the front of the “small group” that had...More
