Fabulous tour today with the lovely Stuart. Knowledgeable, funny and a pleasant ride at a easy, relaxed pace. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to see the real London 🙂

The London Gin safari bike tour was marvellous. The historical stories that our guides Katie and Jasper told along the journey and the facts about gin were very interesting. Of course the gin shots and cocktails were enlightening and I realised that gin can even be a enjoyable drink to have.

Henri Meerbach June 6, 2023

Great bike tour! Edward was a fun, energetic guide. The bikes were cute and well maintained. Overall, highly recommend.

James Radley June 5, 2023

We had a great afternoon with the traditional Pashley byciles, great weather and a varied tour through the main attractions of London and also through a few winding streets away from the crowds. Our tour guide Jasper made it an entertaining tour with many anecdotes to the history of the city.

I mean who doesn’t love the pairing of gin and cycling 😂. A Fantastic day out with two brilliant hosts Katie and Jasper. The tour was interesting, animated and well balanced between gin stops, facts and cycling. I felt our guides really cared about everyone having a good time and the company is stylish and well organised. Good for both tourists and locals.

Such fun learning about the entangled history of gin and london. With a few tasters on the way to create the ambience. Thanks Katie and Jasper !

Sheelagh Bailey June 3, 2023

Our family (4 adults) had a fantastic tour with Olivia! We were lucky enough to have a gorgeous weather day and enjoyed the combination of history and humor throughout the ride. The bikes were comfortable and convenient with the basket on the front, we felt safe the entire time, and getting to the tour start was easy/hassle free. Would recommend to anyone looking for an easy way to see a lot of London's major sites and learn something new even if you've been to London before.

Angela Spillane June 2, 2023

The best way to explore and learn about London. I would say this was one of the best tours I have been on. Jasper was an amazing guide, knowledgeable and friendly. Tally Ho is a must do when you come to London.
