Nico est très à l’aise et nous a fait découvrir des lieux que nous n’aurions pas pu voir sans lui. Son œil expert est un vrai atout et donne un vrai éclairage sur le monde de l’art. La visite en francais et en anglais était parfaite. Je recommande vivement cette expérience unique, vous ne serez pas déçus !

Nico had so much history to share as we walked the streets from one private gallery to the next. I would have never walked into these galleries on my own. Worth every penny, and I’d love to do it again!

We had great time with Nico. He was very kind and an amazing guide. He made this tour multilanguage, french and english. It was so unique! He told and showed plenty of interesting buildings and hidden treasure. We visited a museum and many galeries. He's very talented, because he works for an art galerie. The two hours went quickly. We got gifts (interesting brochures) too! Definetely recommend this tour with him! Thanks, Nico! Les deux heures passées avec Nico étaient les meilleurs moments de notre visite à Londres. Il nous a faire connaissance un quartier tellement intéressant des arts et artistes et il l’a fait avec une compétance et un enthusiasme très symphatique et tous ca en anglais et francais. Nous le recommendons à tous et à toutes sans hésitation. Sí l’on revient un jour à Londres, nous aimerions continuer avec lui cette expérience inoubliable. Grand merci Nico.

What a lovely tour! Nico was so nice and welcoming. He has a very wide knowledge of art. Each galery was unique and interesting. He showed me some wonderful hidden places. I will definitely recommend this tour. Que dire à part au top. Le tour était complet avec des visites de galeries magnifiques autant par l'architecture que par les expositions. Nico s'y connait en art et vous montrera de jolies endroits cachés. Guide à l'écoute, dans l'échange et super sympa. Je recommande à 100%.
