Doesn't look like they are in London anymore.

Hi. I wanted to book a stay but it looks like you have pulled out of London. What a shame. Do you have any plans to return to London in the future?

We had a great time exploring the East End with Germander. My mum and I were lucky enough to have the tour to ourselves and Germander was very friendly and asked our interests to start with so she could tailor the tour to suit us. We saw lots of interesting street art and even talked to a couple of the... More

Loved this walking tour! Sue (the guide) was truly a local and obviously liked the area. This showed in her in depth knowledge of the area. The lunch of pie and mash was not at a touristy trap type establishment. Rather it was at a very genuine local eatery. This tour was fabulous value. Will look to Urban Adventures for... More

A great tour with Sue! Was great to see & appreciate parts of London that we're not so familiar with...but also some that we are....and all through the eyes of someone that was brought up in the area and that could share stories of days gone bye. Can highly recommend to locals and visitors alike.

Delightful experience and a great insight to the sights we pass everyday but do not notice. Our guide was Germander who was happy to mould the tour to suit our taste. We saw street art, landmarks and had a wonderful nature walk along the canal. Would thoroughly recommend to Londoners and visitors alike

Great walk with the lovely Sue, well paced and very informative. It opened up another pocked of London to me which i thoroughly enjoyed. The tour was varied and my attention was held throughout. Thank you to Sue for sharing her knowledge and love of this area with us.

We had the most wonderful time in London. Our very small group was formed by British, Mexican and American nationalities and we all learned something interesting. The lovely Germander made the tour very interesting. She was not only knowledgeable but friendly. She was willing to take all the time in the world to accommodate us and whatever we needed. We...

Thank you for such a awesome tour that was thoroughly engrossing for young and old alike.
