During this bike tour, cycle on both banks of the Thames, admiring London's top attractions and stopping along the way for photo opportunities. Part of your itinerary will be determined by your guide on the day, depending on the group's overall preferences.

Stop for a lunch break at Borough market, one of London's largest food markets, famous for its wide range of food from all over the world. Fortified, you will continue your tour, crossing one of London's most popular bridges, the Tower bridge.

From Tower bridge you will pedal on to the area known as the City of London - the citys financial center - where youll see some of the modern glass skyscrapers that have appeared more recently on the famous London skyline.

Youll then head on past The monument to the Great Fire and Leadenhall market - one of Londons hidden 14th-century gems and hear how it featured in Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.

    We had a Fat Tire tour in Munich that was spectacular! This was on the other end of that which is weird because it's the same company. We met at the tube station and then had to walk about 10 minutes to get to the bikes. These bikes have seen better days. The bikes were uncomfortable. A one size fits all type of bike. The bikes weren't adjusted for each person which would have made it a little more comfortable. Trying to ride these bikes with all the people, vehicles, other cyclists, and road conditions made this a rough ride. Our guide was good with history but when asking questions not about history he seemed uninterested. I am surprised to see two totally different Fat Tire tours.

    Crossing Tower Bridge on bicycle. We had a good and interresting guide. Visited places where we had never been before.

    Riding through the tunnels and seeing the London life in the alleys and food courts. Hearing about the history of the area.

    Wrong departure address given by trip advisor, had to navigate calling tour company and locate correct location, very disconcerting. Already sent this but may have been mislaid in your system.

    This was our 3rd Fat Tire tour ( one in Berlin) We picked the Thames tour having done the Royal one previously. We were met by Andy( Andrew?) and the 3 others in our group. After collecting the bikes we got on the road. London is so nice to cycle around now and we felt very comfortable with Andy. He is very enthusiastic about the history and kept us informed of all the interesting things we passed en route. We stopped for lunch at Borough market( could have stayed all day and ate at every stall!) The cycling is nicely paced and the bikes very comfy so wished the tour was longer. Thoroughly recommend these tours. Will definitely do another.

    We booked on the River Thames bike tour and were fortunate enough to get Andrew as our tour guide with just me and my wife. Nice leisurely pace with usual landmark photograph taken along the way. Andrew struck a great balance of giving some funny stories and interesting highlights without bombarding us with a history lesson. Thanks for a great tour, would highly recommend!

    We did the Saturday morning River Thames bike tour and it was such a pleasure. My husband and I ended up being the only people on the tour as the other two dropped out however, by no means is this a “couples” thing. It’s truly perfect for people of all ages, as long as they can ride a bike. We saw SO many sights and our tour guide, Daniel was a joy! He was so personable and had an immense amount of knowledge to share. There were so many highlights but one of my favorites was a lunch stop at Borough Market (a place I had wanted to visit)! He gave us some history and recommendations of where to go along with how to maneuver everything. We knew we were always in good hands! If you’re on the fence, absolutely do it! If you’re booking it already, smart life choice!

    Excellent 3hr tour with many worthwhile stops. Stop for lunch, stop for beer!...highlights include Borough Market and the Lloyd's of London building finished off with some beer tasting inside Leadenhall Market. Just the right amount of history/storytelling that kept it interesting and moving along...thank you Daniel! (would recommend for slightly experienced riders as there is some busy street cycling to navigate...all done in the safe hands of your guide!)

    This is a great tour if you have already seen the sites around Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Westminster. This covers the other side of the Thames, starting with the London Eye and ending with Leadenhall Market for a pint. Andrew was spectacular in his knowledge and enthusiasm. The type of touring bikes used somehow provide a very smooth and effortless ride. Stopping at the incredible Borough Market for lunch was amazing. Enjoyed every minute of it,

    The whole family enjoyed riding around Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Buckminster Palace all the way to Piccadilly and Trafalgar Square. We had a great guide, very very British and learned a lot from him.
