I wasn't sure what to expect but it was fascinating. The two guides, Jonathan and Marianne, were excellent. Marianne was particularly good and made it interesting and Jonathan provided light relief! The two hours flew by. Would not recommend for young children as they would get bored. Also you would have to be pretty steady on your feet as you are walking on lots of different surfaces. Have already recommended to lots of friends. However, we went to the last tour of the year and as there is a baby on the way, Jonathan and Marianne, are not sure when it will restart. When it does, go!

We had a great time discovering new neighbourhoods and history lessons through this tour! A nice option for a visitor to London, or for anyone who has spent lots of time in the city but wants to learn about something different. Great value for money!

We really enjoyed the Plague Tour, the guides were fab, so informative and interesting. It was 2 hours very well spent, so glad we decided to take the tour gave a real insight into this grim part of history.

I went on this tour after reading some of the other reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. The tour was informative, fun, and fascinating. It was well-paced and we saw a range of sights and hidden plauge-related landmarks that I'd never have seen otherwise. I was travelling solo and Marianne and Jonathan both made a special point to engage in conversation with me during the tour, which I really appreciated. An absolute must-do, I've been recommending the tour to everyone I've spoken to. Thanks for a great afternoon!
