I had seen a review of Bowl of Chalk from last year and really wanted to go. Finally got the chance to go today. We were four friends plus Jonnie plus another four people. The whole group was great and our four hours whizzed by. Jonnie is an absolute gem and really enjoys his job. He has boundless energy and... More

My wife and I recently went to London for 3 days. The tour with Jonnie was definitely the highlight of our visit. It was both pleasant and highly informative. I highly recommend it !

Whether you're new to town or have wandered these streets before, Bowl of Chalk walks and their host Jonnie have smth. in store for everyone. Quirky historical facts, local knowledge, bits of personal experiences - you will get all of these (and some more), come rain or come snow. Literally. I was lucky enough to join one of the extremely... More

Jonnie met us at our hotel to start our walking tour at 9am. We saw so many sights while walking about 5 miles around London. All our questions were answered and Jonnie had good historical stories and neat facts. We definitely got a better sense of the different areas of the city which was helpful the rest of the week....

What a fantastic 4 hours we had with Jonnie from Bowl of Chalk walking tours. First of all I have to say he is very organized and efficient. I initially made contact with him in August and he was always quick to respond to my questions. We are a family of 4. Two parents with 2 adult children (20 and... More

My wife and I met Jonnie for a 4 hr tour around Central London. He was incredibly knowledgeable and provided us with a real insider's guide to so many of the amazing sites. I'm shocked by how much we saw and learned in so little time. What really stood out was Jonnie's genuine curiosity about London and it's history. We... More

I and my friends booked the walking tour with Jonnie for Saturday 22nd November. Jonnie was very efficient and replied to my email very quickly and booked us in. The tour lasted 3 hours and we thoroughly enjoyed it. You got to see many places that you would not see if you wandered about on your own. Jonnie was very... More

Jonnie led our small group of 6 on a fantastic tour, despite the rain and construction noises (jackhammer)! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience London beyond the usual hop-on hop-off bus pre-recorded commentary. Jonnie was entertaining, full of knowledge and genuinely interested in getting to know everyone on the tour. You can really see how... More
