Olivia was a phenomenal tour guide. Witty, wise, funny, passionate with an infectiously endearing personality. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Olivia made it a 5++ star experience that we would recommend to all travelers to London. If only more your guides were like her! We loved her!!! I also thoroughly enjoyed tagging in the graffiti tunnel. This experience was a memorable one, for sure. Kudos!

Awesome bike tour around London

The bike tour with Edward was fantastic and a highlight from our trip to London! Our group was 3 couples and it was a bonus to have our own photographer. Edward provided us with great historical information and made the day fun. Loved the changing of the guards, the pub stop, and it was a great day. Thank you Edward!

We loved it. A great way to see London in an original and efficient way. Jojo was our local guide, she was great. We recommend it.

All the interesting facts about people and places

The tour was as advertised, small groups, ten people in our group. Our guide, Calum, has an endless wealth of knowledge about all the interesting facts behind the familiar attractions and all the places in between that you would never discover on your own. The bikes were ideal, weather was perfect, the group was ideal.

Bike Tour with pub visit.

So much fun. Katie was our tour guide and she was wonderful. Full of London history and delivered knowledge in an engaging manner. The bikes were great with a basket and all. Our pint was fabulous plus the surprise at the end was really fun. A definite when you’re London. Tally ho!!!

A London you wont have seen before

I’ve been to§ London many times before but this bike tour took me to places and views I’d never seen before. The guide was Jasper whose funny and informative commentary and backgrounding along the way made for a thoroughly enjoyable time

Our family of 5 had a fantastic ride with Tally Ho and more specifically with our guide Edward. Fun, safe and knowledgeable round London. Honestly a great way to see the city! We especially enjoyed the “surprise” at the end. Cheers!

Christopher Rocha September 27, 2023

This is a really great way to discover London! Our guide, Katie, knew all kinds of stories and gossipy like tails about buildings and statues, she was so enthusiastic and fun to listen to. We had a blast!! I highly recommend Tally Ho! And special note to Katie: blues kitchen was great!! Thanks for the tip!!

Great experience for the whole family. DO IT!

This was the best experience for all of us. While a bit more expensive than the group tour, it was sooo worth it! We had Olivia, and she was wonderful. So informative and sweet. We met some other guides at the pub who were also great. We toured with our 11 year old, and def wouldn't have enjoyed nearly as much with a huge crew of folks. We had her to ourselves. She also helped us navigate the stressful London streets, but kept us off the main ones as much as possible. Highly recommend!
