We took a day-trip to the Cotswolds with Richard - a wonderful guide with deep knowledge of the place and history and a lovely manner. The combination of train and coach makes it very easy. Our morning walk was Chipping Camden and the afternoon from Upper to Lower Slaughter - all picturesque towns with character and rich history; some tourists... More

I've been on London Walks in town before and enjoyed them but this was my first day trip. It was excellent. We met Simon at King's Cross at 9am. Right from the start, he looked after us and organised everything so beautifully. After a 45 minute train journey, we started with a quick coach tour of Cambridge on our way... More

Went on the Dickens and Shakespeare walk on a hot Sunday afternoon. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable . Pace of the walk was ideal, not too fast or too slow despite the heat! Saw lots of hidden London I had no idea existed. Will be looking to go on some of the other walks available very soon.

I have been on a number of different walking tours by this company over the years and they have all been very good. There are so many it is advisable to check the schedule online first. We did the ghosts in the city tour recently and it was extremely interesting and atmospheric. The guide was brilliant

We found bits of clay pipe, old animal bones, bits of China and stoneware, and lots of old glass. I would have liked to hear a little more about the archaeology of the area.

We started out in a very run down area of Whitechapel and I've got to admit that I wasn't holding out for much when we first started the tour with Harry. But he soon had us interested in the stories he had to tell, great to hear about the Siege of Sidney Street and Lenin and Stalin. I didn't think... More

The walk started out at Piccadilly Circus Tube station. Richard IV took us on an interesting and entertaining two hour walk stopping frequently to tell us about both fictional and real events having to do with the activity of spies in London. I can really recommend this walk to people interested in World War Two and/or reading spy novellas. Bring... More

I've been on over 20 of these walks and they are of a consistently high standard. I decided to review this particular one as it was probably the best overall in terms of guide 'performance', stories and especially locations visited. Katy was the great guide we had and she took us around Covent Garden. Not just the streets which we've... More

I've been on a few of these walks, most recently the Brunel walk and 'a village in piccadilly'. Both led by excellent guides. Informative, friendly and funny. A great way to see the city and to learn. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have been on four walking tours in London with this company. They are two hours each with knowledge guides. No registration is needed and you meet by an assigned underground station. We did Westminster Abbey, portobello market, Tower of London and St. Paul's cathedral. Very nice!
