Our guide was Mae and she was absolutely excellent. We took a walking fashion tour of the up and coming Shoreditch area, which was so interesting. We learnt a lot and were introduced to some great independently owned boutiques in the area. Mae was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Would definitely recommend an Urban Gentry tour.

We booked a shopping tour as we had found it difficult to find unique stores/clothes and were extremely happy with the experience. Mae, our guide was very friendly and took us on a fantastic journey through independent designer stores and out of the way boutiques - certainly found some hiddegems to return to.

My husband is a Swiss property developer and we invited some friends/clients over to London for the weekend. Taking an architectual tour of the City with Urban Gentry who supplied the very cool, hip architect Wesley who is currently studying for his PHd was one of the highlights of the weekend. We were like salivating dogs hanging onto his every... More

I organized a trip for the parents of the Swedish School in February 2011. None of us had been to East End before and therefor really enjoyed discovering this vibrant neighborhood's funky galleries, shops, markets etc with great guidance. It was fantastic and we all want to go back.

Having been to London before we wanted to experience something different. I came across this tour via Viator.com who I had used in Rome. It sounded just perfect for our needs. We were a group of 4 and Kevin our guide soon sussed what we were about and which streets and shops would appeal. He has a great rapport with... More

After visiting the major tourist sites in London, The Hip Neighborhood Tour was a neat contrast to what I had seen. Kevin was extremely knowledgeable. If I had not signed up for this tour, I would have missed seeing this part of the city. I had the opportunity to see various art galleries and clothing boutiques. If you are interested... More

I took a group of catering students and we were given an excellent trip around the markets where we experinced wonderful foods and met interesting people who work there every day. The guides had a wealth of knowledge and all the students were engaged, alot said it was the highlight of their mini break in London.

Just returned from London on vacation with 2 teenage daughters. After seeing the usual museums and tourist sites, we wanted to see the city from a local standpoint. We took 2 tours with Urban Gentry. Both were amazing. Great guides-fun, well informed, great with the kids. The shopping tour was a 3 hour walking tour through great neighborhoods. Saw shops... More

I recently spent a week in London with my 18-year old daughter. On the advice of a well-travelled friend, I booked 2 tours with Urban Gentry, and am so glad that I did. The East End Hip walking tour was just about the best morning ever for both of us , and I would highly recommend it. We really felt... More
