Camden Town Walk with Mike was one of the best tours I've ever joined. Mike told us so many little secrets about this magnific neighbourhood. It really felt like a walk with a good old friend and we were just impressed by his knowledge.

If you re a music lover, don' t miss the Camden Tour!

Having already seen all typical London tourist sights, this walking tour truly showed me and my friend a wonderful new twist of the city. For a very cheap price, it offered us a new perspective of London's most vivid and authentic city part, Camden. As advertised, it is a tour full of contrasts. The tour guide Mike was very knowledgeable, but that's quite common among tour guides. Formost, he is a very kind person, having the experience of many lives lived. He accompanies the cities facts with his personal experience, without telling a sad story, but a fascinating, unique course of life. He adapted the speed of the tour to our personal needs, and even invited us to grab a drink afterwards. His first passion is music, and the references never end, involving him having met stars like Amy Winehouse, the Smiths, or most recent, model Cara Delivigne. I immediately recommended his tour to relatives of mine, who were coming to London soon afterwards.

The tour Mike had for us was not the typical touring one would think is. He had interesting stories, about his life and the life in Camden Town, to tell. It was as if the heart of the rich culture the town has opened up. Knowing the life a town has, changes the experience one has of the place when visiting it, and for that, I have to thank Mike for keeping the whole tour interesting and fun all the while.

Mike's tour around Camden gave a new perspective to the place. It was very informative and filled with funny comments and at the same time it was full of contrasts. A former homeless guy, who now lives (almost) next to Daniel Craig (James Bond) and who goes to the same bar as Harry Styles (One Direction). It was nice to see some of the places which the locals like, and which may not be known by tourists. Basically a fantastic tour around Camden!

Together with an international class of high school students Mike gave me the perfect introduction to Camden. He had a lot of funny and interesting stories to tell. About Camden and the people living there. But also about his own life and experiences as a local citizen. It was a REALLY GREAT experience! We visited some of the more fancy and quiet parts of Camden where the cultural elite live and hang out. But Mike also took us to the more hard to find places and that was what really turned me on. The walk along the canal was amazing, and so was the stop on Primrose hill. Mike is a great person and a really good tourist guide. His stories kept all of us interested and alert, and his strong voice made it easy to understand what he said even in the most busy streets. We all highly recommend a visit to Camden with Mike! Next time I visit London I’m definitely going to Camden – I want to visit many of the places he showed us again!
