London: Essentials Morning Bike Tour

3. London: Essentials Morning Bike Tour

This tour starts in Kensington Garden - you'll start the morning by cycling through this beautiful park to see where Queen Victoria grew up and where Princess Diana lived. Further down the road, you'll stop at London's most classic venue, The Royal Albert Hall, built to memorialize Prince Albert. Feel free to do your own "last night of the proms" or lay back and listen to one of your guide's anecdotes. Your group will then follow the "rotten row" in the magical Hyde park to the statue of one of England's biggest heroes of all time, the man who defeated Napoleon back in 1815: if you know his name and where the battle took place you're the hero of the day. It's all downhill from there, through the Green Park to visit the official residence of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace - maybe you'll get invited for a cup of tea? We hope to tell you some stories about the Palace that you won't find in a travel guide! Next stop on your route is Trafalgar square, one of the world's most famous places. Whatever happened to Lord Nelson in Trafalgar and where did all the pigeons that once lived here go? If you know this then please do share - that's what the tour is all about, sharing some stories  - it's more of a chat than a lecture with a lot of yeardropping. If you like the royal weddings and the coronations, the amazing Westminster Abbey might be the highlight for you on the tour, if you prefer some good old execution and torture you can pay some extra attention by ţhe Houses of Parliament. Then, take a selfie at Big Ben, London's number one landmark before your group goes back again through the Royal Parks to the meeting point again. But please don't rush off without challenging your guides with any questions you may have about other attractions, museums, markets and more ways to enjoy this fabulous city.

If you’re staying in London and you’re short on time you should definitely consider taking the London Pass. If you plan your trip properly and you have that explorer’s zeal in you, you can extract much more value from it than what you pay for in the pass! Even though it doesn’t include some popular attractions like London Eye, Madam Tussaud’s and Sea Life, this pass will definitely help you in simplifying how you should plan your trip in and around London. PS - The availability of the Uber Boat and Hop on Hop off Bus through the pass is a very underrated feature and if used properly can impart great saving value to your trip!

We loved this way of discovering London! Ola had plenty of stories to tell us and he arranged for us to arrive at Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guard. An unforgettable memory for my 11 year old son who loved cycling in London. Thank you Oh!

Simple and practical, we only had to get the passport for the things we looked at and were able to get in or received an entrance ticket.

We can only recommend the highly individual, informative, fun and anecdotal tours with Ola.

Nice and fun Tour, easy to do, felt safe at all times. Thanks Ola!
