Very informative. Great tour guide
Did this on Friday 27th, one of the hottest days in London .. Dani our tour guide was super , giving us lots of history , with the odd song thrown in.. Looking to book another walking tour soon .. Thank you all very much
A very enjoyable tour with a guide who had obviously done his homework - through his folder of historical photographs. The guide was very pleasant and welcoming. On a couple of occasions he walked too fast for a couple of the group - and if it wasn't for others in the group they would have missed a turning.
A useful introduction to whet the appetite for more detailed tours.
This was an excellent guided walk in the City of London. Phil is very well-informed and led us very effectively. Especially strong on literary matters but also more generally.
We didn't find the info interesting, and were very underwhelmed by the entire tour. For a paid tour, we didn't see or learn anything that we couldn't have found out for free. The description of the tour definitely mislead us to believe we would see more interesting things. For example, we didn't get to "Discover London’s most extraordinary disused tube station", we just stood outside of the closed Aldwych station, whilst we were told information and shown pictures that I could have googled.
