Greater London, United Kingdom

The Gin Safari takes you on a juniper-fuelled jaunt across London to reveal a story of gritty social history and the city’s turbulent affair with its favourite tipple.

As we wobble our way around picturesque Dickensian architecture, libations of ‘mothers ruin’ will be served from our GinCycle™, a rickety Victorian gin parlour on wheels.

The Gin Safari celebrates the eccentric and all that is best about the British. Think of it as a liquid history lesson on bicycles, with laughs and banter along the way.

Expect a gentle cycle, bustling food markets, colourful graffiti, fabulous views, interesting insights, crude jokes, and, of course, plenty of gin tasting!

Available options

London Gin Safari was definately worth the wait, this amazing adventure was booked for my 40th bday treat by my wonderful friend pre Covid. We had great communication from Jack and his team, prior to attending. Wonderful, welcoming, witty guides Katie & Brian took us on our Pashley bikes across the hidden backstreets of London, amazing history, knowledge and glorious Gin's. Highly Recommended.

This was such a fun afternoon. Katie and Brian were so friendly and informative, the whole experience was relaxed and enjoyable. The cycling was easy and we felt well looked after. A great way to see some of hidden London and a few landmarks too. Highly recommended

Such an amazing and fun way to see London, to learn more about the city, and to taste some gin on the way! Plus, we also learned a lot more about different kinds of gin, too. The hosts were so kind and lovely. We were biking around the city and stopping on the way at different spots, and the time passed by so quickly. Highly recommend when you are in London! So entertaining.

Wonderful day, great value, 4 drinks included, classic pashley bike hire included, option for bike helmet or flat cap too. Could not recommend enough, we had Katie & Brian - both engaging, patient and informative hosts. I've lived in East London for 5 years and saw new sights this afternoon. Local food and drinks sampled, amazing local knowledge and historical stories. 5 🌟

An excellent gin safari cycle tour around London. The hosts Katie and Brian were both superb and had great in depth knowledge and enthusiasm with a touch of comedy as an added bonus. The gin tasting was just as good with a great variety. The tour ended with a pleasant surprise of artistic quality. I would thoroughly recommend this experience.

10/10 afternoon, Katie and Brian were absolutely amazing, knowledgeable And most importantly stocked with gin. A brilliant tour where are you guaranteed to learn something new even if you think you know all of London (or gin).

Where to start?! James and Shibby were absolutely fantastic tour guides and hosts! Full of knowledge, wit, charm and charisma - they were just brilliant. Our tour only consisted of 7 people instead of the normal 12, which was so lovely. We had such a good group of people and all had a such a laugh. The tour itself was around 3.5 hours / 4 hours long, with so many sights to take in and new areas of London being discovered by bike. We visited markets and stopped for a gin (and a wine), parked up on by London Bridge for another gin and more history, learned where certain sayings come from and why, how the gin was created and how it was marketed at the time and so much more! I cannot recommend this tour enough, James and Shibby were the most amazing hosts. If you have a change to do this tour or the sight seeing tour with Tally Ho! GO, do it!

Great experience with humour, history and gin whilst riding a Pashley bike. What’s not to like? James and Ollie were excellent. My partner may have gone to the Wimbledon final but I think I had the better deal. Would recommend.
