This is long overdue. It's been written for years but I apologize for my delay in posting. We spent a lovely day with Jan Poole from London Walks on a full-day private walking tour of London. Jan was informative and patient and fun. She tailored the tour to what we wanted to see and worked it out so we could... More

Whilst in London I did two of the London walks, the first being Westminster by Gaslight, on which I had such a good time with Fiona our guide, I decided to do another, the Old Palace Quarter with Karen. On the OPQ tour Karen showed us some really great hidden areas around St James that as a tourist you just... More

My husband did this tour on his own as I had to work, but he loved it so much that he made me go with him on our next London trip, We met the air conditioned bus at the designated location (although the hotel was unsure that a group was meeting in the front of their lobby) The bus was... More

We were so excited to do this walk after reading the description of what we would see...here are a few reasons why I was disappointed.....we did not nip across the bridge to take in the famous bridge or the garlands of Victorian lamps along the embankment. She informed us near the end of the tour that she no longer does... More

Took a walking tour of Little Venice to learn about this canal-side London neighborhood. While the tour was generally informative and the neighborhood worth seeing, our guide seemed distracted by his broken umbrella and gave us the feeling that he would rather be at home with a hot cup of tea than leading the walk. Despite the fact that we... More

Just had a great walk with Matt on Forgotten London walk. Matt was very informative and knows his stuff. Had a great time ambling around parts of London that you wouldn't normally see. An hour and half walk, that was very pleasant and interesting, Matt giving just the right amount if information. Still trying to remember it all. Would highly... More

My husband and I returned home yesterday from a week in London. The London walks are amazing. Instead of wandering aimlessly through the fantastic sights we went with London Walks. Each walk is approximately two hours long, cost is 10 pounds unless you are a student or over 65 then it is 8 pounds. Look on their website for the... More

I did the Jack the ripper and it was amazing. Adam was our guide. He was very nice to us. We were explained in details about that very case. The way he did made it made the walk so interesting and exciting. Good sense of humour as well. Recommended.

My wife and I recently took Old Westminster walk on our visit to London, and it was very worthwhile. I was initially surprised that we walked around but did not enter either the Houses of Parliament or Westminster Abbey. However, arranging entry would probably have complicated the logistics, and one of the advantages of the walk was the ease of... More

Just took Simons tour, our first with London Walks. If he is typical of the guides I cannot recommend London Walks highly enough! We learned so much, and his delivery was informative enthusiastic and humorous
