We really enjoyed our tour with Jacky - the bikes are perfectly maintained, and she made the process of cycling through central London easy.

Her knowledge of the street art is excellent and it was definitely a much more enjoyable way to see the art of shoreditch than the much busier tours on foot. Totally unique and highly recommended! Included in the price is also the treat of your choice from an excellent brick lane bagel shop with queues out the door.

Jacky, I hope you have a great time on your bike trip to China, and thanks for showing us around

This was our best tourist experience in London so far. A wonderful bike tour along the Thames in the docklands area that most tourists never see. We would not have found this route without our guide,. Many architectural and sculptural sites are covered with good expertise. Includes a ride in the cable car crossing of the Thames that provides a view from the highest point that equals the London Eye. A great tour for Couples, Family with teens, Friends, Business or Solo tourists. Some basic ability to ride a bicycle is needed.

My husband and I did the Architecture & Design tour on a Sunday morning. We arrived at Greenland Dock by the Clipper boad and Jack was there to meet us with the Brompton bikes. We set off along the south bank of the Thames towards Greenwich and stopped at many unusual and very interesting points along the way with Jack giving us lots of information about the history and architecture and showing us some tucked-away gems that we would never have found ourselves. We also saw some interesting art installations along the way. Crossing the river via the cable car and returning along the north bank, we stopped off at Container City for a snack at a lovely little cafe. Finally we went through the pedestrian tunnel under the Thames to Greenwich and then back to Greenland Dock. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and it was a great way to see parts of London that we didn't know existed whilst getting some exercise at the same time! Jack was a first class guide, very informative and great company. Highly recommended!

If you are looking for a different way to know a part of London that is out of the main steam, look no farther. No traffic, no problems, just pure joy on a bicycle getting to know some quite unique architectural sites in a city full of surprises.

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.
