We booked Johnny for a crisp cold afternoon in February and, because nobody else happened to join our family group of four, it became a private tour. What luck! We got the benefit of Johnnys witty manner, self-effacing charm and his endless store of knowledge and lore about London. He engaged and amused the kids (Boy aged 12, girl aged... More

My daughter and I took a half day private tour with Jonnie on February 2, 2017. Jonnie and I exchanged emails prior to our meeting, and he was very quick to respond and very easy to communicate with. Jonnie gave suggestions of things we could see, and we were able to custom make a tour that my daughter and I... More

I've been to London many times and gone on several walking tours. This walking tour of Shoreditch with Jonnie was among my most delightful experiences. Jonnie was informative and throughly entertaining. His extensive injection of local color was really insightful. The pace was perfect with a trifecta of street art, history and neighborhood culture.

My husband and I visited London for the first time last week. We only had four days and wanted to see and learn as much as possible. We spent two afternoons walking with Jonnie. I booked him because of the wonderful reviews and they were all exactly right. We covered the Westminster area the first afternoon and Tower Bridge, St.... More

Once again when I knew I was visiting London with my husband and two children aged 11 and 13 I booked an afternoon with Jonnie. We walked from Covent Garden, all through Holborn and up to St Paul's. We cannot recommend Jonnie highly enough. He is knowledgeable, friendly, fun and extremely interesting. He was first suggested to us by some... More

I can't say enough about this tour. First, Jonnie was an absolute joy to walk around and see the sites with. Not only did he take us everywhere we wanted to see, but we saw tons of lesser known attractions you may not see with a major tour company. Also, it was nice to just walk and talk with Jonnie,...

Jonnie was fantastic! I would highly recommend this tour and the guide to anyone looking for a great way to see London and be physical at the same time. Jonnie did a great job keeping the tour light, funny, informative, and made unexpected stops when the crew needed them. He did not disappoint! It is a lot of walking, so... More

We went on a guided tour with Jonnie recently and had a great experience. Very easy to get in touch with and he gave us a variety of choices in terms of where we could go. We chose a tour around Fleet Street which we found extremely enjoyable and interesting. Jonnie is everything you could ask for in a guide.... More

We met Jonnie on our 5th day in London. Due to our scheduling and my late planning, we could not attend a weekend walk, so we booked a morning private tour for my family of 6 which included several teens. We toured Trafalgar Square, the Westminster area, Kensington Palace, St. James Park. At the time of the tour, my teens... More
