I cannot recommend this walking tour of East London highly enough. We were unable to attend the weekend tour so we booked a private tour for a tuesday morning. Jonnie is a great guide-personable, knowledgeable and entertaining. He responded promptly to all emails and gave very clear directions on where to meet up and even which underground/DLR lines to take... More

Off the beaten path, non touristy tour of east London. Jonnie is very knowledgeable and gives a well rounded commentary of all of the things that you would not normally notice when walking around London. Would definitely do it again!!!

I cannot rate this walking tour highly enough! Jonnie is a seemingly bottomless fount of fascinating information about London in general, and East London in particular. I was fortunate enough to have him almost entirely to myself on a tour on Sunday, with just one other person joining us. Considering the popularity of his tours, and my lack of love... More

A great morning out with Jonnie! He added some great colour to the area from Moorfields to Spitalfields - highly recommended.

Jonnie is an encyclopedia of London history. His passion and love for London made our walk so fun and interesting- I wish we'd been able to go on more! My sister and I booked the night before our walk and ended up being the only ones (lucky us!). We had a little rain but luckily didn't melt. I enjoyed learning... More

It was my Father's first time visiting London, and I wanted us to go on a personalized tour that we could customize to our interests. Jonnie provided exactly that. Our half day private tour allowed us to touch on some of the most interesting historical and cultural facets of the City of London. He really knows his stuff and I... More

My husband and I and our four children booked 2 tours with Jonnie, one taking in the major sights in central London and the other around Fleet Street. This was a great way to introduce our children to the wonders of London and we also learnt plenty about the city we lived in for two years. Jonnie was very informative... More

Jonnie was an excellent guide. Our group was small (our party with a baby in a pram and one other) and the weather was a bit damp but Jonnie made the tour interesting, explained things further that we didn't know about. All the while making it seem like a conversation. I have lievd in London 11 years.

As first time visitors with limited time and wanting to make the most of it, we booked a private walking tour with Jonnie for our first morning in London. He responded promptly to our initial email inquiry and was extremely helpful in tailoring an itinerary based on our interests and time schedule. Jonnie provided us with easy to follow directions...

It was a very unusual walk around East London. We were particularly interested in street art and Jonnie was knowledgeable and quite expert in this alternative culture. Easy to understand( we are not native speakers of English), nice and amiable, comprehensive of our interests and preferences.
