Awesome tour at must do. You get to see a lot of the standard tourist sites like St Paul´s but you get off the beaten track and find canals and inlets you´d nver see otherwise. A full day´s riding but in reality not very hard and it is mostly flat. Guide was excellent. Try to go on Sunday as then Brick Lane will have it´s market on.
