The cheapest way to discover London, the best places, hidden places and unexpected attractions is by walking. This time around we start from London Bridge which is close to where i stay whenever we are in London. This time around instead of heading towards Tower Bridge we head towards the City, Moorgate, Brick Lane, head back via Liverpool street,London Wall,... More

We were looking forward to the Cotswolds trip. We showed up at the appointed time (after a huge amount of trouble finding the meeting location) to find one person surrounded by many others. There is no way to pre-book, so after travelling 5,000 miles, we were basically ignored by the guide and had to figure out on our own that... More

I have been visiting London for years but only just discovered these people. We did the 'Inside Covent Garden' and the 'Unexpected London' walks. £9 each walk which was very good value. The guides were Katy and Hillary - both excellent and entertaining. The history comes alive with the guides enthusiasm and their knowledge of their subjects is in depth.... More

DISAPPOINTED! The website description for " THE HIDDEN PUBS OF OLD LONDON TOWN" states "gnarled brooding back-alleys, secluded courtyards and tortuous zig zag passages...." I saw none of these on the tour and 43 folks with one guide was too many. Imagine waiting for everyone to catch up and If didn't make it to the front when the informative guide... More

These London walks are small, relatively, in depth vignettes into an aspect of London that forms each walks theme. I have now taken more than six of these walks over a multiple year period and each time i felt well informed and that I received more than fair value. To be sure, some trips are more interesting than others but... More

I did three walks on my last visit in London - "Soho unzipped", "A village in Piccadilly" and "Past the Palace". The guides are very entertaining and has a great knowledge of what they are talking about. Great walk to do as a solo traveller. A special thank you to Katy who was the guide on the Piccadilly tour -... More

Lovely lively walk around Shoreditch with the knowledgeable Pepe viewing the street art. He had a mixed bunch from a baby in a push chair to young french children to oldies and made it a great tour for all especially including the children. Time flew by and the two hours seemed like one. London Walks are great for visitors and... More

I heard and read about London Walks and not disappointed. We did the Tower of London tour and were very pleased. The free "Beefeater" tours are packed with too many tourists, while our London Walks tour was just the right size and our guide, Simon, was wonderful. He gave a theatrical view of the gory history of this fascinating landmark.... More

When I was searching for info on day trips from London someone suggested London Walks and sure enough they offer several trips. Don't dismiss this company if you're looking for a day trip. We met our guide, Simon, at Paddington train station. The cost included the train, tour, and entry to Brasnose college in Oxford. Bring cash to the station.... More

The price is reasonable and the duration is always a couple hours which I believe is enough. The walks are very educational and enjoyable. Well worth doing. I've been on several and they were all good.
