My class and I were spellbound as we toured the streets of London observing the superb art. It gave us breathtaking experiences to last a lifetime. Although we were walking round in freezing temperatures, Joe kept us stimulated and engaged from the word go. Watching my peers facial expressions change round every corner was pure delight; wandering without knowing what... More

Fascinating, informed, multifaceted tour, from an entertaining enthusiast. Three hour sounds a lot, but passed very quickly as there was so much stuff to see. Well organised, well paced.

I've done enough traveling in my life to know that as a tourist, it is very easy to see the tourist version of a city. You go to Times Square, you walk the Hollywood Walk of Fame, you go to Ripley's Believe It or Not, you drink Starbucks & eat McDonald's, but you DON'T brush shoulders with the locals. Because...

I did the Greenwich tour about a month ago and I cannot speak more highly of it. I have been on tours in the past with guides who just spout off fact after fact with little to no personality. Joe, the tour guide made the tour interesting and funny from the word go. I actually live in Greenwich but had... More

We did a group tour in Greenwich last Saturday and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to do another tour with Jo soon. He was knowledgeable, fun and personable. I highly recommend him as a tour guide.

I recently took this tour with my elderly Father. We are both Londoners and saw our lovely city from a different angle! Joe was very informative and entertaining. A great tour.

My husband and I took the Southwark detour this September, and it was a wonderful time. The tour is 4.5 hours long, but it went by so fast! I couldn't believe it had been that long when it was time to end the tour. Joseph has such enthusiasm for the areas we visited, and it really comes across in his... More

This time i thought i would do something offbeat in London and i am so glad to have signed up for the Shoreditch and Bricklane street art graffiti tour. Joseph is the go to man here. He keeps you in great company with his liveliness and enthusiasm. There is so much of street art waiting to be discovered in these... More
