The experience was awesome. My initial disappointment was thinking it was a bus tour instead of a walk. However, Tim and his warm personality made the journey exciting and it was good to meet persons from Canada, Australia and NY who were also on the journey with us. A must do tour if you're visiting the UK. Thanks Tim for an awesome experience.

It is one of the best walking tours. I am very new to London and our tour guide was Jason. He was super friendly and was very good in story telling. I would highly recommend for someone to learn more about London history!

This was such a fun thing to do. The host was super entertaining and paced well enough for everyone to keep up, plus the group was right sized, something that appeared deliberate so participants could enjoy themselves. I loved learning about historical people and events . Our host was also kind enough to recommend other paid and free things we could do to really enjoy London. Overall, the tour was better than I thought it would be and I would do it again! Not even the weather took the fun out of it.

Tim provided an outstanding, thoughtful tour, full of interesting insights. We were able to see the changing of the guard and take some incredible pictures of Buckingham Palace. The whole tour went by quickly and I would highly recommend this walking tour to see a new side of London.

What a great experience! Our guide, Will was awesome! My wife and I enjoyed our tour immensely! I would not have changed a single thing. London is an amazing city filled with interesting stories and history. We learned a lot and enjoyed the company of everyone that was on the tour. I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting London.

This was a great tour for the first time visitor to London. We got to check so many things off our list in a short period of time and even got to see some things we didn’t expect! I highly recommend this experience.
