Hi Joanna , I went on the Winter Wanders walk as part of the TFL Walk London on Sunday 25/4(afternoon) and enjoyed it very much. Your knowledge of the area was impressive and the tales you told us were enthralling. I went with a friend who equally enjoyed your walk and we hope to do more walks with you when... More

My first tour with Joanna, but the first of many. The tours itself was fascinating, with many variations on the main theme of literary Mayfair, but there was a liberal sprinkling of other interesting places and sights. I was one of a group of five, and the others enjoyed it as enthusiastically as I did. Joanna herself is a personable... More

I did this walk with Joanna Moncrieff last weekend as one of the Winter Wander 40 free guided walks provided by TFL. From start to finish I was enthralled by her tales and limitless local knowledge. Must admit I like the sound of her food & drink walking tour and hope to do that when the weather gets a bit... More

I felt I knew this area before I went on Joanna's walk. She showed us some places I never knew existed despite working in the area for many years. Knowledgeable, informative and enjoyable. Despite being a very large group (free London Walk) Joanna ensured everyone was able to hear and keep safe. Would certainly go on another of her walks.

I did this walk with Joanna as part of the Winter Rambles free London Walks. It was excellent, our guide was knowledgeable without risking information overload, it was a very pleasant, informative and stimulating afternoon. Highly recommended. Eden

Joanna kindly agreed to present her Christmas lights walk for our Merry band just after Christmas (30th December 2014) as previous commitments stopped us from attending before.. ...I can honestly say that the walk was the highlight of my Christmas - Joanna provided an informative and entertaining ramble around Mayfair and Soho, at a comfortable pace - (as well as...

Thank you EssexKat for your great review. I am so pleased you enjoyed the walk. You're not alone in thinking it's a great way to get into the Christmas spirit as this year I took a number of people on this walk for the 2nd time and it was the 3rd time for one attendee! I look forward to seeing... More

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
