Jeremy was GREAT! We used Walks 7 years ago in Italy and had such a great experience we booked a tour in London. This tour was just as amazing. The entire tour was amazing with VIP access and views we could have never done ourselves. Thank you!!!!!

Rosie made this an exceptional tour! She guided us to the most advantageous viewing site, even gently nudging along interlopers who attempted to block us. We easily viewed the visiting guard, horse guard, changing of the guard. The climb up the steps was well worth the effort. We asked Rosie for a lunch recommendation and we enjoyed lunch at an unassuming cafe in the basement of the Methodist church. The fresh corn on the cob was delicious.

This tour was fantastic. Katie and her rescued squirrel companion were a testament to guides everywhere. She’s clearly a credit to the industry and supremely professional and knowledgable. She knew the best places for photos and always knew the answers to the questions. There was never a dull moment and even though by the end I could feel my tummy rumbling, this tour was awesome, the walk up to the dome and the view of London was breathtaking. An amazing experience which I’d recommend to anybody visiting, or locals alike. Thanks especially to Katie, who was stellar.
