Fun and festive bike tour through London!

Wednesday, November 29, 2023

Our family of 5 really enjoyed the expansive bike tour which not only included Christmas lights, but a solid number of interesting historic stops. Chris was a great tour guide, with a lot of spirit and both fun and interesting facts. The chance to experience biking through a huge metropolis like London was exhilarating and a great way to see a large swath of the city in a relatively short amount of time. The Christmas lights were all so dazzling and creative, each section with their own 'theme' and brilliance. We appreciated the information that Chris shared with us at each stop, everything from royal history to that of the Beatles and more contemporary trivia. We loved the looks of surprise and smiles that people wore as we passed them (along with some funny offhanded comments) and enjoyed the range of Christmas music Chris DJ'd during the tour. There were a few pretty crowded spots that we had to navigate whilst walking our bikes, but we managed like strong salmon swimming upstream! Overall, it was a unique way to see the city and get into the holiday spirit!
