London City Tour Description

Join us as we unravel the history and mystery of London’s oldest neighbourhood. The City of London is the historical epicentre of London dating back to the Romans. Over the last two thousand years, this small, enclosed region has been the beating heart of London. 

Today, it is the financial centre of the entire country. The City of London features skyscrapers and towers standing side-by-side with 800-year-old churches. This contrast creates one of the most interesting tourist destinations in London.

Our e-scooter tour of the City of London provides a fresh look at this ancient area. E-Scooters allow us to zip through the City and see more than any other tour. We will cover all the key locations within the Square Mile and you will hear tales of the secrets, traditions, and inventions that have made this location so crucial to British history!

Age Restrictions / Requirements:

For all of our electric scooter tours, the minimum age requirement is 18 years old.

In addition, you must be in possession of one of the following:

  • A valid provisional or full UK driving licence.
  • A valid full licence from an EU or European Economic Area (EEA) country.
  • A valid full licence from another country that entitles you to drive a small vehicle in the U.K.

If you are unsure whether your driving license is applicable, then check this government link: “Gov.uk – E-Scooter Trials: Guidance for Users.”

When you first access a Dott e-scooter you will be asked to verify your identity, therefore you must bring your driving license along on the day of your tour. You will need to scan your license via the Dott app, therefore you must bring the plastic photo-ID version of your license, not the paper counterpart.

If you do not bring your license, we cannot guarantee you will be able to access an e-scooter.

Don’t have a license? Or has your license recently expired? We also offer a collection of excellent E-Bike Tours. All of our e-bike tours do not require a driving license so provide the perfect alternative!
