This was one of the best experiences I’ve had in London. Katie and Stewart were our guides and we had a great afternoon with them. Cycling through lots of the areas back streets with so much character. The history behind the gin was so interesting and we had some great people on the tour with us. By the end we were all laughing and one big happy group. It didn’t feel awkward at all. So many great places were discovered that I want to go back to. Thank you so much Tally ho! I can’t wait to come back.


A unique cycling tour with an amazing guide

Xenia was a fabulous guide! Right from the start we could tell she was going to be a blast and she was! She was such a great storyteller and passionate about the history of the area, plus, the bikes! The rest of London were certainly green with envy! There was definitely something special about cycling around London in a Tweed cap 😊 I can't recommend Tally Ho! highly enough! If you have time, boom a tour, you won't regret it!

A fantastic way to get around the main sights and hidden gems of London. JJ was our guide today and was fantastic. Small groups, personal service. Highly recommended.

Great bike tour taking you to all the highlights. You can tell this is a well run local business - everything was just that bit better than larger style offerings. Zenia was awesome and enjoy having her as a tour leader now as theatre awaits this star.

Best bike tour in London

Steward is a very entertaining and knowledgeable guide with excellent communication skills. He also takes care of the group in a smooth way putting security always first. It was particularly nice to have a drink at the pub, he gave a lot of good advice to all members of the group. We got to discover the best Indian restaurant ever.

Great tour and a superb way to see multiple site between Lambeth & Waterloo Bridges, including Lambeth Castle, in/around Smith Square, Westminster Abbey, The Mall/St James Park, Convent Garden & others, with time for a pint as well as a bit of fun in the Vaults of London. Katie our host was great, informative and charming. Highly recommend!

Great tour to see a lot of sights in a short time with nice little bit of facts and history for each! Stuart was a great guide, and was very funny and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!

Ricky Goloski April 26, 2023

We had limited time in London and decided to do a bike tour to get our bearings and hit some of the highlights. It was great! Edward was an informative, fun guide. We covered a lot of ground and learned in a relaxed way. It was a small group and I appreciated that - we saw other bike tours with many more riders. Would definitely recommend Tally Ho!
