Staff Review: River Thames Bike Tour – London

entete
After having this trip eagerly pinned on the calendar for a while as we waited for the tour to start running again in April (can’t imagine it’d be quiet so fun in the winter), Leoni and I were raring to get started on our River Thames City Daytime Tour with Fat Tyre Bike Tours. Myself and Leoni have both been on a number of walking tours of London, so we were looking forward to putting our foot to the pedal and leaving our walking boots at home to try something different.

The huge stadium towering tall above us and the XL version of the original Arsenal badge, people had come from all over the world to view the amazing grounds. We were lucky enough to get complimentary passes for the self-guided audio tour, which, as neither of us had been inside a football stadium before – we were rather excited about.

London Day Out with The Original Tour

This week we were lucky enough to be able to join The Original Tour in London, exploring the city on the classic London transport.

One of the great things about this bus tour is that when you have your ticket, you can hop on and off any of the Original Tour buses for the rest of the day! Continue reading
