From the first contact with booking to the end of the tour, our experience was wonderful! The communication and customer care given by Caroline was exceptional. No detail was left out in the emails and we felt well-equipped to meet up on time and navigate the city to take our tour. Phil, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable about the various sights and was registered as an official tour guide for the city! He was friendly, charming and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a one-of-a-kind experience. We saw all of the best sights in the city and learned so much about the history. I highly recommend this tour as it has been the highlight of our whole trip!

DO NOT MISS THIS WALKING TOUR!! My son and I spent the first day of our trip with Alexander and it was the perfect way to start! He has a great sense of humor and is so so knowledgeable! For the rest of our trip we felt comfortable exploring because he'd given us such a good foundation of London. This experience is definitely well worth the money.

Our tour guide was Alex and he did an amazing job. He was extremely knowledgeable on the history of London and answered many of our questions. He also had recommendations for other things to do in London once the tour was done. I would highly recommend if you’re looking to see all the sights and feel immersed in London culture!

Caroline was wonderful and exceptional! I was able to learn so much and go to more places than I would have going on my own. I felt that I was part of the group and very welcomed. Her tips for navigating through the city and insights were very helpful. Very thankful to have her as my tour guide in my stay in London!
