Small Group River Thames Bike Tour

Small Group River Thames Bike and Beer Tasting Tour

Explore ‘liquid history' and breathtaking urban landscapes by cycling both banks of London's famous river.

With smaller groups, a different route and a focus on the people's history, this tour is the perfect complement to our Royal London Bike Tour. Our tour guides offer legend and fact about a city that has united against Great Plagues, Fire and War, while developing into the cradle of modern civilization and commerce. For lunch, we invite you to wander through the aromas of London's oldest and largest food market (cost not included) before cycling across Tower Bridge and embarking on an incredible adventure.

    We run tours rain or shine and have plenty of rain ponchos. We find tours in the rain to be a different kind of fun and an even more fun memory! If you have a reservation and the weather is really bad, you are welcome to reschedule the tour for any other day for up to year.
