I've lived in London many years and this is definetely in the top 3 things to do. Fantastic way to spend a day. Also very informative without being all facts and figures like some History tours.

My husband and I and our 7 year old son did the Royal bike tour with Jamie as tour guide. It was truly a highlight. Jamie is a Londoner (much better to have a local) and he was a great chill, witty guy that made the tour interesting because he was smart and funny instead of the typical smarmy tour guide type. My son absolutely adored having a day of touring where he could jet around on his bike and be outdoors...totally great time, heartily recommend it.

We were so glad to have found Fat Tire Bike Tours here on Trip Advisor. We followed reviewer advice and took the easy and flat Royal London bike tour on day one of our visit. Our guide David was kind, knowledgeable and caring. He was certain to keep a watchful eye on us at all times, and made sure that everyone in the group was accounted for. He was careful to give very specific instructions anytime we were going to ride on or cross public roads. Most of the tour takes place on wide public park lanes.

Taking this tour first allowed us to define what attractions we wanted to go back and see in more detail, which we did. As advertised, the tour took a break at Trafalgar Square for lunch, where you have 45 minutes to do as you wish. Our 2 younger boys voted for lunch at Cafe at the Crypt at St Martens. Our older son chose to wonder freely and then meet back up. You can bring your lunch, or there is a "Pret A Manger" on almost every corner, where you can grab a quick bite. (It's a counter service place that sells ready to eat sandwiches, salads, juice, chips, etc.) The weather was typical for London in winter. We had on coats, woolies, gloves and hats, and stayed very comfortable. It was approximately 45 degrees F on the day we toured.

We can't wait to take this tour in Barcelona or Paris, where they have other outlets. This is a don't miss.

I had heard about the Fat Tire Bike Tours before going to London, but it completely exceeded my expectations. The tour was great and very informative! The entire time I felt safe and our guide Jamie was extremely helpful! His knowledge of the city was very appreciated. He also had some humor thrown in, which made the tour that much more enjoyable! I can't say enough about the tour and how much I loved it. I would highly recommend the Fat Tire Bike Tours in London.
