    Knights Templars, Crusaders & Freemasons Tour, London
    An excellent Tour. Stephen, the Tour Guide has a wealth of historical knowledge in the city of London, and knows the city like the back of his hand, and took us to places well off the tourist beaten track. Although our interest was mainly the Knights Templars, Stephen also informed us of many other fascinating historical facts. Furthermore, as we found it all so interesting the normal 3 hour Tour took nearly 4 hours and we were never rushed; and in fact the end of the Tour was determined by our agenda, rather than his. Highly recommended, and good value for money.

    Superb visit
    I recently took a friend from the US to the RAF Museum as we hadn't been for many years and opted for a private tour. Well worth the money as you get a very detailed talk as well as some fantastic insights. There have been many changes since I last visited including opening up of the Sunderland Flying boat and the recovered Halifax bomber. Well worth a visit.

    Enjoyable Adventure
    Stephen was a fountain of information and actually wrote the book on the secret gardens we visited. Meet us at our hotel and walked with us to the underground, to get us to the start of the tour. Weaving through the city of London to gardens that the average tourist would never know existed. What a great time we had. Thank you Stephen

    London History and Pub Tour
    Fantastic tour. Stephen is an amazing guide. It’s not just a Pub tour but a tour that provides interesting historical information. Stephen is an entertaining guy and we enjoyed every moment of our tour. A great way to spend a day.

    Great tour and awesome guide
    Stephen Liddell is an amazing tour guide. We covered a ton of ground in England and learned all about the history along the way. We look forward to coming back and doing another one of his tours.

    Historical Pub Tour is a must do!
    The Historic Pub Tour is highly recommended. Such a great way to get away from the usual touristy stuff. Stephen is a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable, engaging, generous and personable. This private tour (that’s right, a private tour so no large groups, or a guide yelling their boring script or wearing dodgy audio sets!) took us off the tourist tracks and showed us an interesting and intriguing history of London, stopping at numerous authentic historical pubs and enjoying a drink at each one (the drinks were included in the price). Conversation easily flowed with Stephen. We enjoyed his stories and the way he shared his knowledge. He is a passionate guide who wants to give you a great experience. This tour was exactly what we were looking for and we can’t recommend it enough.

    Dickens would have loved it.
    Our guide, Kevin, was THE BEST, knew his stuff. Met us right on time at our hotel and the tour started immediately. Down alleys, through parks, in and out of pubs. If you're a Dickens fan do not miss this tour.

    Private tour of Mayfair and Belgravia
    Great time with Kevin touring Mayfair and Belgravia! 12,000 steps in and a lot of information. Highly recommend for everyone who wants to know hidden history of London and its areas.

    The Churchill Tour - a MUST!
    Our guide, Kevin, was amazing. He was incredibly knowledgeable and led us to so many interesting and out-of-the-way Churchill haunts! The tour was fun and informative and we would definitely recommend it.

    Wonderful mix of history and natural beauty.
    Wonderful mix of history and natural beauty set in London. Small churchyards, a hidden crypt, to to Rooftop garden at 120. Well paced walking tour. Stephen has an excellent command of history and local lore. We will return soon for the pub tour! Thanks again, Dave and Diane

    Great Tour and Amazing Guide!
    Our first activity on our very first visit to London - we traveled as a family and everyone loved this tour. So much info on the Sherlock Holmes saga - both past and more recent. Our guide, Kevin, was absolutely the best. He was kind, helpful, supremely knowledgeable! He pointed out so much that was nearby our walking path and helped us become familiar with the tube. Based upon information he shared, we went back to several places over the span of our visit. Kevin obviously loves what he does and it was clear that his top priority was to make our experience a great one!

    Simply an Amazing Tour Experience - Book Now
    We had an amazing private walking tour with our guide, Stephen. Stephen was punctual at our hotel as agreed upon via text the day before. He is a very friendly, genuine and authentic person. His extensive breadth of knowledge of sites that we visited was impressive. I asked many questions and he managed to answer all of them. Stephen was very patient and stepped up to the task of letting my tween see and pet some horses. I would absolutely recommend this company. I look forward to taking more tours in the future.

    At the heart of things but off the beaten path - truly the best way to see London!
    Seriously the most cool walking tour available in London. No tourists. Just you, Stephen and the an insiders view at some of the most overlooked places with the most amazing pieces of London history: the place where William Wallace (of Braveheart fame) was drawn and quartered, the Templar church (yes, those of the Crusades), the bar where Stalin and Lenin argued (naturally just a few steps from the Karl Marx institute), the Old Bailey, the houses Dickens used as inspiration for Bleak House and Scrooge (and where the boy bought the Christmas goose), the Priory of St John (yes! the ambulance guys to this day!) and so very much more. It is an amazing trip through history and the personalities and proclivities that shaped it. Very much off the beaten tourist path. Highly recommend!

    Hidden Treasure on this Amazing Tour of the City of London
    This was one of the best walking tours we've ever taken! Roman walls, secret gardens, bombing sites reclaimed by nature, wonderful new buildings framed by the ancients, private odes to unsung heroes, London haunts of those who left to become American icons...these are just the few of the treasures of this magnificent, private and serene walking tour that Stephen Liddell offers in the City of London. Strongly recommended.

    Cultural London Tour
    Such an interesting, insightful tour of hidden gardens of London. Stephen, our guide is a font of immense knowledge on all things historical and made the 3 hours spent so interesting and fun. I'd highly recommend any of his tours.
