This was just what we needed to enjoy a memorable tour of the area. Jonnie made the tour fun and informative, and exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend it to anyone.

Had a great morning last week with Jonnie. Really interesting and relaxed private walk through Southwark, London Bridge, Bankside, St Paul's and Fleet St. Highly recommend. Will do another walk in another area with Jonnie again.

My colleague and I were visiting London to prepare for a short term course we will be offering to college students. Our goal was to explore a couple of different areas within London and get a solid on the ground perspective. Jonnie was so great. He has a really easy way about him that draws you in. He is very...

This was an interactive and relaxed way to enjoy Sunday in the City. I've been in London for years and learnt about things I've just walked by in the past. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I did a private walking tour with Jonnie a few days after Christmas and it was such a treat. Jonnie is fantastic - enthusiastic, engaging and full of interesting and unique stories about London and its history. And his prices are completely reasonable - a deal even. We will be doing another tour the next time we... More

I booked the East London tour with Jonnie as a Christmas present for my wife, so I was really hoping it would be good, and it was brilliant! Our knowledge of East London is not so great and rather than seeing the more famous monuments/areas I wanted an experience that would inform us about this area as well as seeing/learning... More

Jonnie kept us entertained for three hours in the pouring rain. His easy -going and friendly style of communication makes you feel like you are being shown round in a group of friends. Infinitely informative and ready to answer questions, he took us on a route (Trafalgar Square to St. Pauls) that was jam-packed with history. Amazing. Thanks again, Jonnie.

My family of 4 (2 adults, a 13 year old boy, and a 15 year old girl) went on a 3 hour walk with Jonnie the day after Christmas. It was a cold morning but Jonnie delivered. We told him in advance what we wanted to see and he brought us everywhere that we wanted to go. He was kind... More

When first looking to visit London I was overwhelmed. The possibilities seemed endless and the directions given by fellow travelers numerous.

We recently did three private walks with Jonnie (amazing value) and one Sunday group walk. We loved every minute of each one. I wanted get a real sense of London during our two week visit from Melbourne and Jonnie was our perfect guide. My two daughters (20 yr and 18 yr) and I met Jonnie for our first walk at... More
