This was our first walking tour as we wanted to do something a bit different and see something new on our annual pre-Christmas visit to the Big Smoke, this tour certainly ticked all the boxes!

Matt was a brilliant guide and every location he took us to during the 90 minutes tour we had never seen before despite having walked many times in those very same areas. His knowledge about each location was superb and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Looking forward to booking another tour next year - the hardest part will be deciding which one to choose!

Thanks for such a wonderful review! It's always extra special when people who know London find out so many new nuggets of information on our tours. Lots of other walks to choose from - hopefully see you on one of them next year...

What a wonderful way to spend an hour and a half. Our tour guide Jess was very engaging and seem to enjoy his job The tour lived up to is description showing us quirky interesting out of the way spots that are missed by typical London tours. I liked it so much I went home and looked up what other tours Fun London Tours offer and I signed up for another one! Younger kids may be a bit bored as it is more geared towards inquisitive adults

Totally enjoyable tour, loved that so much was packed into an hour and a half amble about some of the streets and alleyways of London. Also, massive shout out to Jess who did a splendid job of ensuring the tour was crammed full of interesting facts and quirky anecdotes in such a light-hearted manner. Will definitely be booking another tour on our next outing to the big city.

I'm glad that we were able to fit your daughter onto the tour and that you had a lovely time with Rozie. London is fascinating isn't it? You just need to know where to look... See you again in the future!

The 90 minutes we spent with Matt was thoroughly entertaining. We came away from the Secrets of London tour with our heads full of fascinating new facts and a little bit smug that we’d seen sights that few other tourists or locals would see. There’s always more to see or learn about London. I’ve lived in or close to London for over 20 years, yet everything I saw or heard during Matt’s guided tour was new to me. 10/10

It was a pleasure to show you the side of London which people generally don't notice even if they live or work here. Thanks for such a lovely review, and I'm so happy you found it fascinating and entertaining in equal measure!

This was a really interesting tour with stops at some very charming little alleys. The tour took 1.5 hours which was long enough and Matt (tour guide & designer of tour) made the tour amusing and interesting. We would book another of the tours available.

Yes, the Secret London is really interesting, and I'm glad that you enjoyed the walk with me Susi. Who would have thought that there are so many hidden and forgotten alleyways and fragments of old history just around the corner from Trafalgar Square?

Just what we were looking for….
As residents of Surrey we have seen the major tourist attractions & wanted something a bit different! This tour offered just that! Matt provided a fun filled, interesting tour showing us sights and telling us stories that you wouldn’t find on other tours. We very much enjoyed our walking tour & would definitely recommend. Great fun!

Jess was amazing! What a great guy and guide. The tour itself was really interesting and informative, very enjoyable for anyone not just those interested in history. Lots of very interesting stops, lots of surprising facts. Very satisfying. My favourite part of the experience was Jess, his enthusiasm and character made this tour all the better.

Fascinating tour with a very experienced and group-responsive guide (Matt). I have lived in this city for 20 years and had only seen one of the sights - so a great education for what I was missing as I moved aorund my city.

We live in London and were bought this as a birthday present. It was so nice being able to learn more history about the city with live in. We learnt a lot and went to places we didn't know existed. Our tour guide Jess was so lovely and knowledgeable, he really made the experience. A really great way to spend an afternoon! Thanks
