This was my first London walks tour and it will not my last. It was excellent and the tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable. We spent 2.5 hours walking around the city of London, hearing about stories from roman to modern times. The guide expertly brought us to buildings and landmarks while telling us stories about the history of each... More

I've taken a few London Walks in the past. This time around I picked the "Pie Crust to Upper Crust" walking tour. It is not often offered, but I happened to be in London when this was offered. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend the tour if you enjoy food. We took a walk from the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Harry Potter walking tour - it takes around 1.5 hours and is excellent value at £9 per adult and £3 per child. Not only do you learn more about the Harry Potter sites, but also some interesting info re other landmarks - and go down some fabulous little alleys that I didn't know existed. Andy full... More

This 2 hour walk was a great way to spend an afternoon. Ruthie, our guide, was engaging and knowlegeable. A must do for any Sherlock fan. Note that the walk does not end at Baker St, but rather at The Sherlock Holmes Bar. I would highly recommend going up to look at all their Sherlock memorabilia, and staying for a... More

A group of four of us took the Jack the Ripper tour a couple of weekends ago and really enjoyed it. Very informative and entertaining. Walked to see a number of sites but didn't feel like there was too much walking or we were being hurried along. I love that you don't have to book and can just show up... More

The London Walks is the best way to experience London. So, by all means take one of the Big Bus trips around the city, but then go on a London Walk. You will experience some amazing things. They generally last about two hours, and sometimes you don't move more than 4 or 5 blocks, but wow, will you learn a... More

We have done a number of these walks over the past few years, each time a different walk and each time a different guide. All have been excellent and most informative. Today, on a lovely Spring afternoon, we did the Old Palace Quarter with Karen (the website says Angela but it certainly wasn't her today). Karen was very informative and... More

Over the years we have taken number of London Walks tours around London. The tour guides are always unbelievably knowledgeable and offer fascinating back stories that you wouldn't get by just visiting a location on your own. We highly recommend their tours of Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, and The Palaces of Westminster.

Been to London several times and always take a few walks with this company. Really enjoy strolling through historic areas of town. The guides make things much more enjoyable and entertaining due to their historical knowledge of the area. Always learn something new and occasionally we get to go into some of the historic buildings. Tours run in the morning,... More

wonderful insight into hidden aspects of London around Covent Garden, the Royal ballet and the Courts of Justice to name only a few so as not to spoil the surprise. The guide was brilliant and just opened up so much of the behind the scenes and top tips of places to return to and enjoy. My friends and I are... More
