We had a wonderful tour of the beautiful London Parks via Fat Tire Tours and our terrific guide, Paul. I highly recommend this to all. Great way to see London and get exercise. We met our guide near Queensway Station and Bayswater Ave. Bikes are well maintained and helmets are offered. Ages on our bike tour ranged from 20's to 60's. We saw Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park and St. James Park. Paul got us through the traffic and kept us together easily, but I would not really recommend for families with small children. We had several stops to take pictures and Paul was very informative on the history and stories of London and the sites. He truly made it a memorable time. It was a highlight of our stay in London!!

Perfect way to see the city
ErnieAvino, Apr 2023
Ashley was a great tour guide. My teen boys and I had a blast biking through the city and Hyde park. Stopped at various locations and explained the sights. Kept us alive while crossing the short intersections. Helped that we had near perfect weather. Would definitely recommend.
Great tour, wonderful experience
Shahar_G, Apr 2023

London Tour

It was a great adventure and highly recommend on your next London visit. I have been to London so many times and it was a great outing and now want to do each time we come.
Different spin on London
Melanie_M, Dec 2022
This was a different look at London with a fantastic storyteller guide, Andrew. I am not a regular bike rider, and the trip was mostly through calm areas of the park and pacing was good. Overall, I would book this trip a second time on a future trip.
AMAZING Royal parks bike ride
Georgina_C, Nov 2022
I highly recommend this bike tour. Isaac our guide was funny, friendly and very informative. Such an amazing experience to cycle through central London, through beautiful parks and yet see so many famous landmarks. I would definitely do this again! Worth noting this is family friendly and easy cycling with lots of breaks. We had children and grandparents in this group and all managed and thoroughly enjoyed it,
Great bike riding tour

Memorable bike ride!

We had an amazing time with Issac he was informative, friendly and pretty funny. We couldn’t ask for a better time. It was our first trip to London and it was memorable.
Mixed feelings
ferrantef, Nov 2022
We saw fantastic spots and our guide Sarah was friendly and knowledgeable. The bikes were good. I did not feel the group was held accountable for pushing in front and basically claiming spots at the front of the line. Very annoying. Also two teen boys were obnoxiously weaving in front of us. I felt that as older participants we were rendered invisible to the group (not the guide who can't see behind her). Eventually this chaos led to me being at the ba k of the group when a light changed at a big curved intersection. To avoid a car hitting me I "crashed" into the curb. Again, the guide was great, and concerned,l when this happened, but the overall dynamic was poor.
Great Fun
Jill_W, Oct 2022
Great bike ride for all ages. Saw lots of London rather quickly in a short amount of time that we probably wouldn't have seen otherwise to include the changing of the guards at the palace.
Accommodation to children

Going through Hyde park with my daughter was a lifetime memory. Seeing where Peter pan was inspired from.
Great tour

Ashley was amazing! Great story teller and kept the tour moving at a nice pace. The group of people in the tour were friendly too!
London Fat Tyre Bike Tour
Trenton_B, Sept 2022
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our London Fat Tyre tour. It's the best way to explore a new city and learn about its history from a knowledgeable guide. Our guide Isaac was fantastic! He was very enthusiastic, super friendly and patient with the kids in our group. I think we did more stopping and talking / listening on this tour than on any previous ones my wife and i hsve done but, there was just so much to see and learn during this tour. Isaac was a wealth of knowledge and made the entire experience such a fun one. These bike tours are always the highlight of our travels abroad without exception!
Beautiful excursion
Dcimpey, Sept 2022
The tour was quite nice. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny but did not overload us with information or humor. The guide kept us all safe and we had a great time .

Bike tour of London highlights
Randy_S, Aug 2022
A really fun way to see the major sites in London. We rode through parks and on bike paths for the most part so it felt really safe. Josh, our guide, offered lots of back stories to the usual history of England which made it even more enjoyable. HIghly recommend it!
Amazing - enjoyed every minute!

Great Excursion!
Kimberly_B, July 2022
We had a blast! Easy riding around London. Ash, our guide was amazing. He brought us so close and no crowds for the changing of the guard. Such a great experience. A must in London!
