“WHAT AN EXPERIENCE !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

The five of us Americans had a wonderful tour with Rob from Real London Tours. He was knowledgable, personable and very engaging. What we didn't want was a lecture from a tour guide who didn't stop talking, and, fortunately, Rob didn't have that style. He would ask questions, learn of our interests, and then fashion his information around our desires. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour company to our friends back home. Thank you Rob and Nathan!

“Outstanding tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Our family of five had never been to London so after doing some research found Real London Tours. We are glad we did. Nathan was very helpful setting up the tour and answering all our questions. He was very prompt with any inquiry. Rob took us on the tour and was outstanding. He was able to make the tour meaningful for everyone and taught us a lot about London. He had a great personality and was very engaging. Everyone loved the tour. Rob was very accommodating during the entire tour and made it very interesting. I would definitely recommend this for anyone visiting London.

“Real London Tours Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

My daughter and I used Real Tours while in New York City (Zach Aarons was our guide- fantastic) and I knew when we planned our London trip that we would use them again.

Our guide Rob was knowledgeable, cheerful and a joy to be with. We learned so much that otherwise would have slipped by.

I wish Real Tours was in every city along our way (Rome, Amsterdam... What say Luke?!)

“An intimate must do experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

We own and operate a touring company, so when we travel, finding awesome tours to take is a top priority. Real London tours IS the real deal. We knew it would be, because we had experienced a Real New York tour, and knew Luke would insist on the same level of intimacy with the London version. Our tour guide, Rob was authentic, personable, engaging with our 14 and 10 y.o. boys, and filled with great stories and information about central London. I loved how he personalized some of the stops knowing our interests. After the tour, we went to a coffee shop where he sat down with us and suggested a number of other routes and places to explore off the beaten path. Those who travel by the wisdom of tripadvisor reviews need to make this a priority to do when visiting London.

“A London Essential”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Our tour with Real London Tours was perfect. Our guide, Rob, was intelligent, interesting and friendly. None of the same old tour spiel here! These private walking tours really are the best way to see the city. Rob gave us lots of recommendations and a valuable Londoner's perspective. These tours give a great overview and you can always go back to anything by yourself for a closer look. We travelled with two little girls (4 & 5) and two teens (14 & 20). Rob made the tour interesting for all of us and kept the pace suitable for the little ones. They managed to walk a very long way! Real London Tours are professional, personal and friendly. I can't recommend them highly enough!
