Great experience. Awesome way to see a lot of different landmarks in such a big city. Katie was a wonderful guide. She was knowledgeable, funny and I felt very safe biking through the craziness of London traffic. Highly recommend, especially early on in your trip so you can get oriented/ receive some recommendations.
