A family of 4 visited 4 walks (Tower, Wesminster Abbey, Old Westminster and the Royal London/Change of the Guard.) The first 2 are a must since there is so much more one can learn. Brian was fantastic. And, since you are getting a discount on the entrance prices the first 2 walks are a no brainer. The old Westminster walk... More

We went on The Ancient City at Night tour. We had a great time, so much information specifically about the architecture of the buildings. It really gave us a great perspective on the city with old meeting new. The tour guide was very engaging although my husband and I both had a strange feeling like he didn't like us at... More

I've been on a couple of 'London Walks' and I've enjoyed them. Most of them were during the winter at night, and very atmospheric, e.g. 'Jack The Ripper Haunts'. This time it was a treat from a friend during daylight! Both of us agreed to do 'Charles Dickens' London. I read a lot of Dickens' works as a child -... More

Have done a few walks in my time and they are always interesting. The "Rock and Roll" tour a few weeks ago was good but the guide kept telling us the usual guides were not available so we had to "make-do" with him.... This was unnecessary as he did well. A good way to spend a couple of hours seeing... More

We did four walks - 3 in London and one to Bath. It saves you money on entry fees and gives you a unique way of seeing the sights. The walks are as described on the website. And you just have to show up with cash in hand including for those tours that go out of the city. The guides... More

Kim was a star guide on this fascinating tour of London's past and present. Although we had a big group of around 40, she moved us along, found quiet places to do her explanations and projected well. It was one of the best walking tours we've ever done.

we signed up for the Kensington walk under the assumption that the walk would be "bookended" by substantial gardens. within the first 5 minutes, the guide David, explained that we would not have access to the roof garden. we journeyed on while learning about every window sill in Kensington area and about where people that us Canadians had never heard...

David T, Owner at London Walks, responded to this review

The problem with the Internet is that anything you say online can be used in evidence against you. If you say lots of foolish things it makes you look like a fool. So I’ll just stick to the facts. 1. We weren’t able to go up to the Roof Garden on the day in question. They had a private function... More

We did 3 walks with http://www.walks.com/ and they were all excellent - Dickens (with Richard III) - Harry Potter (with a different Richard) - Westminster Abbey (can’t remember tour guide’s name) What made these walks so engaging and even entertaining (besides being extremely informative) is that the tour guides wrap a story around all the facts. So really they are... More

The Hampstead Village Pub Walk (Saturday night) was a highlight of our London trip! Richard III was a witty, knowledgable, and entertaining guide. We stopped at 3 pubs throughout the tour and learned about the history of the area as well. It was well-paced and a great way to see a different part of London. There are no reservations so... More

Fantastic walk with Kim as our guide. A great way to see lesser known areas of London that have just has much historical interest as the typical sites. As a former resident of London I learned a bit more about my former home.
