Wear your walking shoes! We clocked just over 8 miles and it was great!

Linda was a great tour guide. She had a good sense of humor while guiding 19 clients. She was very knowledgeable and a very good communicator. I would recommend clients try to find her.

Richard our tour guide made history come alive for us, he is extremely knowledgeable and great to be with. We could never have seen so much on our own even in several days. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience the history of London.

Our guide, Julie, was superb. She made history come alive for us. She was always professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. If she couldn’t answer a question, she researched to find the answer. That did not happen often, because she already knew most answers.

Fantastic tour, earbuds made it very easy to hear the guide. Must do if visiting London for the first time.
