“A few weeks later...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

...I still have clear and fun memories from this walk.
I've lived in Japan for the past 4 years and you rarely come across street art the way London displays it. Really vibrant and surprising! Jonnie has a very interesting way of presenting each masterpiece and gives you a full insight about the artists, history, and locations. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

“Brilliant walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We thought we knew the City of London until we went on Jonnie's walk from St Paul's Cathedral to Trafalgar Square. He showed us hidden squares, buildings tucked down alley ways, ancient doorways and century old statues all accompanied by interesting and amusing facts. His love for London is obvious and we will definitely join another of his walks.

“Lots of fun and very informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Jonnie was a great host for the London "Trafalgar to St. Pauls" walking tour. He gave us a nice insight on famous spots as well as quirky and fun little details on less known "insider" locations. If we would have spend more than 3 days in the city, we'd have done another of his tours. This is a great time for anyone from a school class to couples out and about.

“Best Walking Tour of London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Jonnie tour was excellent. He is friendly and knowledgeable and had a passion for London. We had intended on taking one walking tour during our trip but liked the tour so much that we did a second with him the following day.

Highly recommended and well worth any cost!

“A Tour from the Ground Up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is a tour for people who don't normally like tours and tells you things other tours don't. All 7 of us thoroughly enjoyed this, including my 16 year old son who opined "s'alright" : praise indeed. Our tour was of the "My neck of the woods" type that Jonnie does and was right up my street (sorry). I had never explored this part of London despite @% years here, and found every street fascinating. Many memorable highlights: one was a "dude" in yellow Lamborghini attempting to drive thru Brick Lane market when walking thru was impossible. Much street art featured and lots of social history, domains of famous: living and dead.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
And Jonnie is a nice guy.
