Your guide will meet everyone 15 minutes before the tour departure time outside the entrance to platforms 1 & 2 inside Waterloo train station. Waterloo train station is located above the underground station, so if you arrive by underground, then go up the escalators into the main train station after you have gone through the ticket barriers, and then follow the clearly marked train platform numbers along until you reach numbers 1 & 2, where you will meet your tour guide. If you’re running late, though, please call the emergency number provided.

First and foremost the team was extremely responsive and assisting me even before the ride started. I recommend this bike ride to get to parts of London and hear about history that you will other won’t see or hear. I didn’t realize how well connected and safe London is for bikers. Our guide did a phenomenal job of taking us through all the narrow alleyways to many cool places in this amazing town. While I won’t reveal the tour itself I will say the first stop at an underground tunnel will blow your mind. The bikes are well traveled - my first bike was rickety which they replaced when we got to the 2nd stop. The bike route is fairly flat with an occasional hill here and there. Most recommended.

If you're looking to get off the beaten track of the usual tourist crowds then I can't recommend this enough! It helped that it was an amazing day as well and it was such a chilled way of seeing some fantastic places. Great tour guide as well! For only £24 per person as well for 3/4hrs worth of a tour, bargain.

Great way to see London

We really enjoyed our tour. Clear instructions on where and when to meet up. Most of the time cycling on quite roads but need to be mindful that you are cycling in the capital so it will be busy at times. Our teenagers ( aged 16 and 14) loved it as did we. Got to see lots of historical sites as well as many places of interest. Highlights were pakora on Brick Lane and Tower Bridge. Would truly recommend this.
