So first met Richard a couple of years ago on an evening guided tour 'Ghost Tour' in the City and it was brilliant and he was first rate as a guide and raconteur. His history knowledge is spectacular. So I bought a private tour and we did 'Secret London' last Sunday. Just four of us and Richard and he didn't disappoint. Totally fascinating and enjoyable over 2 hours in the heart of the City. Richard hails from Stoke on Trent but you wouldn't think it - he should have the freedom of the City - a superb representative and keeper of historical facts and tales. Thanks Richard we will certainly do another walk next year.

In the absence of a holiday away from home in 2020, I was keen to improve my knowledge of the history and geography of the City of London (an area where I have never worked,so not familiar with all the back streets etc.). Having previously joined a Dickens Tour with Richard, I knew the Secret London one would probably fit the bill, as Richard is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the city. I was not disappointed. While some of the walk covered areas I had previously explored, I found out new things about these streets and buildings, and I was also introduced to other hidden gems. I think it is an interesting walk whether you are a resident or a tourist. This is the perfect time to do the walk as the streets in the city are almost deserted so you can explore without the hustle and bustle of normal city life and linger at a relaxed pace. One thought for Richard: While we’re coming out of lockdown,it might be helpful to reassure potential clients that toilet facilities can be found near the route of the walk. There are definitely some pubs and eateries open.

We are a book club group of 7 who decided to organise a Christmas treat. We organised a walking tour with London Discovery Tours followed by a meal. We chose London DIscovery Tours as they seemed really good online and were very prompt at getting back to us with the answers to our queries. The actual tour itself was brilliant and we felt we had definitely chosen the best company to go with. Richard projected his voice well so we could all hear hi. He really knew his stuff and was able to answer all our questions. It was such an interesting 2 hours. We all agreed that we would really like to do another tour at some point in the future.

An evening arranged by a friend & WOW what an evening it was. Richard was wonderful, certainly knows his stuff but most importantly he is very charismatic with an amazing speaking voice that has you captivated! Such an interesting insight into London's ghostly history. Would highly recommend & will definitely be doing another of his tours. SUPERB👻

The London Ghost Tour with Richard Jones was brilliant. We learnt so much about the lesser known spooky and macabre facts surrounding the hauntings of the old alleys and cemeteries around London’s Bank Station. Richard’s historical knowledge is superb and he regaled us with wonderful tales of times-past. The tour is also great value for money and is therefore very inclusive. We would definitely sign-up for another one of Richard’s future tours and will be checking-out some of Richard’s recommended places to visit. Thanks Richard.
