We'd gotten good recommendations for London Walks from a few different sources, and we liked the Jack the Ripper tour so much we went back for two more. Rex, our walking guide, was very knowledgeable and very personable. He gave us plenty of history of the area, above and beyond just the Jack the Ripper stuff. Definitely recommend it. Make... More

I did this walking tour with my mom, we are both big Beatles fans. Our guide was Richard Porter, a renowned Beatles expert, he has a book. There is no need to reserve ahead of time, just show up at the spot noted on the tour details. Being summertime, it was quite a big group, and there were no issues... More

This is my second trip to London (the first was maybe 10 years ago), and I again used London Walks. I did their Westminster Abbey tour, and you can't compare trying to do it by yourself. We had a quick entrance, and the most important items to see were not just pointed out, but explained. Then we used them for... More

Harry is one of the best tour guides I've ever met. Sunday afternoon we joined his tour of the East End and learned about the lives of the waves of immigrant groups who have called this area home, These cost effective tours really are a good way to get to know a city, its history, its people, its architecture, sites...

I picked up a London Walks leaflet in the hotel and decided to give one a try. Went on the Westminster walk and found it really interesting. The guide was excellent and presented the information in a very entertaining manner. At £9 per adult, a London walk is great value. My only regret is that my schedule did not permit... More

My wife and I wanted to get a glimpse of the Cotswold's and this tour sounded promising. Leave London in the morning via high speed train instead of by coach like other tours, and spend more time at your destination. London Walks has great reviews, so even though it was a bit expensive £55.00 per person it showed great value... More

When I'm in London I always try to find time to take one the fantastic London Walks. It's the best way to get to know the city. The guides are excellent and incredibly entertaining. They bring London past and present alive!

At the end of September I was in London and decided to try out a couple of London Walks tours. The first tour I took was Hidden London and it was excellent. Augustus was the guide that day as Shaughan was on vacation. We walked around the City of London and saw historic sites that are a bit off the... More

I wish I were in London often enough to take every one of the walks; I've been on several, and they were all terrific. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable, the guides are very good at keeping the groups together and projecting their voices so that all may hear. My favorites were a Sunday morning walk through Hampstead Village, which... More

We went on two tours, the Shakespeare and Dickens walk and the Jack the Ripper tour. Both were very different but equally enjoyable. The tour leaders were well informed and friendly. Although this was not our first trip to the city or visits to these areas we noticed and learned things we wouldn't have before the tours.
