Rüya guided my partner and me on a beautifully curated urban walk, as we inspected and discussed a fascinating and diverse selection of street art, prominent and hidden, old and new, from Petticoat Lane to New Inn Yard. Rüya regaled us with her passion, enthusiasm and expertise. Artists from around the world represented a great range of styles from futuristic to Korean to fantasy and psychedelic, and themes from intersectionality to surveillance, to the survival of indigenous peoples. We identified myriad artists’ work, and even saw works in progress!…

Review of: Private 90 Minutes London Kickstart Tour
Chris gave us the best welcome ever to London! He was funny, super accommodating and caring! The day of our tour I wasn't feeling well and he actually messaged me the next day to see how I was feeling! He even helped me find a doctor when I needed it. Chris went above and beyond a regular Tour Guide I feel like Ive made a friend! I would recommend Chris 1000 times over. Truly a great guy!…

Tom was energetic, warm, helpful and a wealth of knowledge. We had only one full day in London and our 3 hour walking tour covered some really interesting places. We loved having a cup of tea in the markets meeting the local store owner, had great views over the city from a spot we would never have found and walked over some famous bridges. Tom was flexible and changed our trip to cover some of the things we hadn't seen before. Tom showed us old pictures and snippets from old newspapers on his ipad - we thought that was a great idea as it helped us put things into context. Tom sure does know his stuff. Highly recommended. All up, the best 3 hours we spent in London.…

We had a wonderful walking tour with Tom. It was filled with lots of history, bits of gossip and so much insight into the Royals, now and in the past. We covered a lot of ground during our tour, literally and figuratively, but the time passed quickly! Tom was funny and a wealth of knowledge. We would highly recommend this tour...it's a great way to spend a few hours in London.…
