I had already taken the small-group river Thames bike tour which was a day trip and I wanted to see the city at night. Both tours are good but I enjoyed the fact that we stopped at a pub for a pint on the evening tour. Sight seeing is always better with a beer.

I love Fat Tire- they should state they will meet you outside the tube. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. The pub stop was perfect- it was a nice break, it is a pretty long bike ride and traffic isn't exactly light, I wouldn't bring anyone elderly or younger than 10.

Great way to see London from a different perspective. Our guide Matt was very personable and knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed the well organised tour around London. Nice to meet fellow tourists as well. I would recommend this trip - the fact we had a beautiful balmy evening definitely helped as well.
