This was such a find. A wonderful morning spent with an informative and friendly guide, cycling on cool bikes around a hitherto unknown part of London.

Jacky was a wonderful guide, giving us some cycling tips initially and then guiding us around Deptford and then onto Greenwich. There were so many interesting stops along the way - it's not just architecture but also historical as well (well the two are often interlinked). We saw some art along the way as part of a sculpture trail along the Thames before taking the cable car over to the north side and having a snack at Trinity Buoy. Then it was a cycle ride to the Thames Foot Tunnel and then back along the south side.

The trip is safe (very few busy roads and nearly all pathway). The bikes are perfect for this, well maintained and easy to manage (as well as being an absolute pleasure to ride) and the length of the trip was just right including the break.

Please book this. Please go on this tour. It's personal, it's local, it's interesting and shows you places which you just would never see on a larger tour nor would you read about them in a guide book. I consider myself a local and the majority of the stuff I saw on the tour I'd never seen before!

Highly recommended and Jacky is just wonderful.

What a fabulous way to spend a Bank holiday Sunday - touring the cycling hotspots of London on a Brompton. Thank you to Jack and Barbara for navigating us expertly to explore the Brompton shop, Brookes Saddles, Velorution and tokoyobike. Refreshment stop at 'look Mum, no hands' was spot on. We really enjoyed the Brompton experience and will definitely be booking another tour in the future.

We discovered lovely nature and unexpected culture along the Thames, under the charming guidance of Jack. This is really a hit for people who want to discover 'other' aspects of London!

My sister and I did the street Art tour on bromptons. Despite it being super freezing, we had a totally brilliant day. We saw some uber cool street art, parts of london we'd never seen and all accompanied by the wonderful Jacky, it was so interesting, varied and such a fun morning out. Already looking to sign up for the design tour!!

Had a great time on the art and architecture tour guided by Jack. The Bromptons are very easy to get used to and the tour only very occasionally goes on the roads so you don't need to worry if you're not used to cycling in traffic. Jack was very knowledgable and friendly and communication in respect of the booking, details of where to meet etc were spot on.
The length of the tour was just right and we stopped in a very quirky cafe for a bite to eat mid way through.
I'd advise taking the Thames clipper to the Greenland (South Quays) meeting point as that added to the whole experience.
