Went with my department for our Christmas outing on Joanna's Christmas Lights walk. Starting in Marylebone (which was very convenient as that is where we work!), going through Mayfair and then finishing in Soho, Joanna was very knowledgeable and through in some Christmas related facts along the way which was great! Saw some fantastic lights that wouldn't have thought to... More

This is the second time I have done this walk as Jo is a friendly and knowledgeable guide. It was great to revisit places I had forgotten about.

Organised by TFL, this free guided walk by Joanna was informative and very, very interesting - I would recommend it to anyone interested in history/tales of the Covent Garden/Soho area even with a large group of us (well, after all it was free!) she was able to make sure all of us were kept together and fully informed at every...

I went on a walking tour with Joanna as part of the 'Spring into Summer' weekend of free guided walks organised by Walk London and Transport for London. Joanna was very well informed about the area, and the walk unveiled a number of hidden places around Covent Garden and Soho. Places most Londoners would rush past without stopping to look... More

A wonderful late afternoon/early evening walk with Joanna around Soho. We were shown an array of cocktail bars that were 'secret' - you would be totally unaware of their existence unless pointed out - with history and many absorbing facts thrown in. Joanna was very interesting, informative and knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to listen to her. We ended... More

An enjoyable mix of historical facts, great eating places and 3 veryinteresting pubs off the beaten... More

Belated review of a great walk in Belgravia that covered three lovely pubs and other sights. Joanna was a knowledgable and fun guide armed with interesting information about what we were seeing as well as tips about favorite tea spots and other suggestions along the way. As a non-Londoner, it was a great way to see a part of the... More

Thanks for taking the time to give me such a great review. The Belgravia walk was my original pub walk and to my mind still has some of the best pubs in London but in an area slightly off the beaten track. I hope to see you some time soon on another walk. More

On a short visit to London thought a guided walk would be the best way to see the best sights -wasn't wrong Joanne guided us round for nearly two hours with an interesting mixture of pubs lights and facts so the time past very quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone visiting the Capital for... More

Had a great evening walk around Marylebone with Joanna. She was knowledgeable and friendly and we had a lot of fun while exploring this part of the city. She showed us some hidden gems. We will definitely be looking at Joanna's scheduled walks the next time we're in London as we would love to go on more walks with her.
