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!!

Jennifer was very fun and informative! We had a wonderful time despite strong wind and some sprinkling rain, highly recommend.
Brilliant experience
Annette_H, Mar 2024
Our leader, Emily, was great. She told fabulous stories (one was about Horatio Nelson) and had us act out the parts of history. I liked how she included the kids. It was so fun and my favorite part of the trip to London.
Fantastic city tour!

Fantastic city tour! Despite visiting London multiple times, I discovered numerous hidden histories. The highlight was my first glimpse of the King Albert Memorial!
Great experience.

Franklin was my tour guide and I got a private tour because I was the only one in the group. You would think that would lead to an uncomfortable day. But it was quite the opposite. He was super knowledgeable and informative about history and fun facts and I had a great time just riding with him. we skipped lunch and did the trip in three hours which was perfect considering it was very cold and it rained throughout. Most of our ride. It was also cloudy and windy. The fact that he made it fun with all of that happening shows how good he is. The pace of the bike riding is very gentle.

Awesome tour!

James was awesome! We really enjoyed this tour getting a good sense of the city! He was very fun and informative and guided us well! The pint at the pub and graffiti alley tunnel were such fun highlights
Great Bike Ride

A bit of exercise and lots of information. We saw horseguards assembled and the parade from the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham. The parks were beautiful. We heard so much history of Westminster Abbey, Parliament, the Royals. Great day !

Easygoing and fun trip and great guide. Took us to main attractions in London and told us fun stories. We had a great time!
Very little bike ridding
Aaron_B, Aug 2023
Very little bike riding. We were asked to walk the bikes over 1/3 of the time and then we additionaly stopped every 5 minutes for the guide to tell a story.
Lovely fun bike tour around London
samiabegum, Jul 2023
amazing tour, we had so much fun and learned so much from the guide. Especially loved the history about central London.
Matt was brilliant!
SuziSchweikert, Jul 2023
Matt was brilliant! All 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teens, loved hearing his entertaining stories about English history. Would definitely do again. The parks were such a nice break from the city and we enjoyed the snack break in Hyde park!
A great tour for our kids
Cheryl_V, Jul 2023
Ashton (or Ashley not sure) was a fantastic guide. We went on this tour because it was off the Roads more so and it went to the attractions we loved. We liked this one so much we booked another through another place in London because the only other tours Fat Tires does we didn’t feel comfortable with because we had our 11 and 12 year old girls with us. We felt this tour was much better than the Love London Tour. Much safe too.. we liked this one more because it hit all the tourist spots worth seeing but we also went through the parks and I love that. Loved the luck stop at Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park. You won’t be disappointed!
Educational and fun!
Leslie_E, Jul 2023
Emily was our guide on the London Royal Parks Bike Tour. She was knowledgeable and super fun. We learned so much and had a blast riding around London and through the Parks.
Great choice!
Ashley_W, Jul 2023
Highly recommend. Fat Tires does a great job not only showing you the city, but explaining the history behind various places. Matt was a great guide.
Family Bike London tour
Julie_s, Jul 2023
A great way to see London with the family, we had 8 of us, the bike lanes make the experience better. We booked to experience the Royal parks and it did not disappoint. Our guide Nick was calm during the very crowded sections and knowledgeable.
Stephanie_O, Jun 2023
Great way to see the southwest area of the city and the many popular attractions. We enjoyed hearing a refresher about London and world history and how it has impacted modern times. Matt delivered the whole package in an amusing way! Thank you!
Highly recommend
Jane_W, Jun 2023
Royal Parks bike tour was the best way to see some of the highlights of London and so much more than the title suggests! Great way to get perspective and bearings on the city and loved the tour guide’s commentary, stories and tips for travellers! Highly recommend!
A great way to be a tourist
Brian_P, Jun 2023
Great tour that was not too challenging physically. Saw a ton of sights and had a lunch break in a beautiful park. I find these bike tours are awesome early in your trip so you can identify the sites you really want to spend time seeing.
A gorgeous way to see London
Angelina_J, Jun 2023
Having done all the usual tourist haunts on previous trips this was the perfect mix of old and new. Revisiting some classics as well as new tales from our guide. Isaac was wonderful! Informative and helpful. He kept our group together and dealt with a tiny bike malfunction quickly. The biking was easy going and even paced. No hills or tricky bits aside from a bit of London traffic in spots.
