Never have participated in but having seen and overheard walking tour guides over many years in the US, I was a bit skeptical that most of them were simply platforms for young aspiring actors to perform for small captive audiences. In the case of the London Walks I could not have been further from the truth. The stable of guides... More

We met Fiona exactly at the spot where the website told us to meet her, Baker Street Tube, North exit. With its British punctuality spot on time! There was a lady who didn't have a travel card for taking the tube and Fiona was so nice to wait for this lady. Customer service first class. We had a pleasant walk,... More

We went on the Thames Beachcombing Walk on a very nippy Sunday morning, but it was a real blast. We began with a walk after meeting up at Mansion House Underground station, getting a sense of the geography of London from Roman times forward. From there we marched across the Millennium Bridge and on to a part of the shore... More

Enjoyed a gentle walk from Mansion House to the Southbank whilst discovering more about the history of the Thames from our friendly, informative and knowledgeable guide Fiona. The time spent on the foreshore was invaluable to learn fascinating historical information from the bits and pieces of Thames debris that we discovered when we were let loose. An excellent introduction to... More

My husband and I are massive fans of all of the walks we've been on. These include: Kensington Village, Jack the Ripper, Old Westminster, Spy Walk, James Bond walk, Dickens & Shakespeare's London, Haunted West End and Little Venice most recently. We've never had a bad one; usually led by an actor or historian and always pointing out buildings or... More

The guide was really hard to locate. We got there really early, there was nothing to identify her as a guide. The bad part was most of sites were gone. Be aware that there is an additional charge to gi inside the Temple. This was the main highlight of the tour. If your time in London is short, I would... More

This tour was scheduled with Karen but it was actually delivered by Peter. Peter is clearly passionate about history and has a fantastic knowledge of London. The tour was interesting and humorous and made me want to know more. At £9 it is fantastic value for money. Peter was at the tour meeting place promptly and in the location the... More

My family and I took the Dickens tour on Christmas Day, 2014. Our guide "Mary" could barely be heard as she rambled on and on reading whole pages, it seemed, from Dickens's novels. There were far too many people in each of the groups making the tour and too few guides. I cannot remember one interesting or pertinent comment this... More

The guide knew his stuff but was cocky, laddish and indiscreet in the presence of a child. He made "funny" i.e. slightly derogatory patronizing remarks about Americans (there were Americans in the group) and finally, at 45 minutes into a 2 hour walk told us we could go to the loo. We did and two minutes later came out to... More

A really good guide - whose name I sadly can't remember, took us on a fascinating and really amusing walk, in areas which were very familiar but through alleyways and back streets we had no idea existed. As a result of that, we would definitely try another walk.
