Very few sights in London are quite as magical as the Thames after dark, and our River Thames Evening Tour is the best way to see it. Our guides will lead you on a journey that is sure to be a highlight of you trip. From world famous sites like The Houses of Parliament and St Pauls Cathedral to hidden gems, allow us to use our expertise to paint a picture of London through the ages. Learn how Shakespeare influenced our language, how Drake circumnavigated the world, and how one plucky bus driver managed the impossible on Tower Bridge. We’ll weave you down alleyways that look like they are straight from the pages of a Dickens novel and explain just why this small Roman outpost became one of the preeminent cities in human history. All of this adventure is sure to work up a thirst, so let us buy you a pint in a traditional London pub where you can pick up some insider info from your world class guide. Join us for an evening that you’ll never forget and an adventure you’ll be reminiscing about for years to come.

The River Thames tour is by reservations only. Please check the scheduling info on the tour page. Basically, if you can book it on our website, we're running it. And if not, do consider a private tour - if you have a decent size group (7+) or are willing to pay slightly more for the privilege, we will gladly create a bespoke tour for you at any time of the year.
If you're comfortable on a bike, you'll be just fine on this tour. There is more riding in the road than on our Royal London Bike Tour, but the route itself is not difficult. We ask that all riders be 12+ years old and feel comfortable riding single file alongside traffic as well as in a group on a dedicated bike path.
We live in London, so we're not strangers to the rain! We ask that guests dress appropriately for the weather, but we do have small rain ponchos available should you forget yours. This tour will run rain or shine, but if it's raining quite hard, you can reach out to reschedule, or count on spending a bit more time in the pub getting to know your guide and group.
We've planned a stop about mid-way through the tour at a 400-year old pub. This is a great chance to try a local London beer and get to know your fellow cyclists. Plus, the pint's on us!
Unfortunately, we won't have enough time to enter any of the amazing museums that we see on this tour. We've designed our Evening River Thames tour to give you a great overview of London and point out some of the highlights. Our guides want you to enjoy every second of your time in London, so they'll happily give you instructions and tips on how to best visit the museums that interest you most following the tour.
Absolutely! Our 'office' is more of a garage, but you are welcome to leave larger bags or annoying family members there during the tour. We will either have another staff member present or lock this space while we ride. We have never had an instance of theft or loss, but please note that you will be leaving your things at your own risk.
While biking in London is a great family activity, we ask that all participants on this tour be 12+ years old. Anyone under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour. Unfortunately, we do not have adult tricycles, tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children, so we ask that all guests be comfortable riding their own bike. This tour is not strenuous, but everyone should have some bike riding experience and be comfortable riding in a group.
