Thank you to Phil for making our trip to London so special. This walking tour was the highlight of our visit and Phil was an awesome guide with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of the sights we saw. Which were such a delight! We saw the Changing of the Queen's Lifeguard, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and then we went to Borough Market for lunch. There was an astonishing array of street food! We were spoilt for choice. We had a fabulous lunch and then carried on to see London Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, St Paul's Cathedral and we ended up with an awe-inspiring view of London. Our guide Phil was just amazing. He was funny, kind, very knowledgable and made a point of getting to know all of our small group as we walked around. It was like walking with friends! If you want to see all the main sights in London I can highly recommend this brilliant walking tour!!

Caroline is simply AMAZING! One of the best tour guides I have ever met. She knew exactly the right Spots to take the group, so it really felt like a special experience. Since we were so close to the Changing of the Guard we were able to take some amazing instagram worthy pics. Caroline is not only very knowledgeable about the history of London and the Royal sights we visited, but brings a genuine warm and positive energy to the group which makes you feel like you fit right in. Caroline is kind and extremely friendly and makes the tour a funny and enjoyable experience. Like I said in the title. I always felt like I was simply at the right place at the right time. I wish I could see all of London with her. I HIGHLY recommend this tour!!

Superb tour. Caroline got us to just the right place at just the right time to get the perfect spot for watching the Changing of the Guard up close. We so enjoyed the walk through London with our lovely group and loved hearing about all the history and hilarious stories about the Royals. We saw most of the major attractions of this part of London including Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament and heard amazing stories about them all. Great time was had by all!

We found Phil our guide to be both extremely knowledgeable yet at the same time very friendly and welcoming. His ability to provide us with insights as well as detailed information really sets this tour apart from a number of others that we have been on. Phil also supplemented the tour by sharing his wealth of knowledge on all things London!

I could not have asked for a better experience. I had a 10 hour layover in London and did not want to spend that time in the airport. My incoming flight landed right before the tour started which meant I would miss the first part. Caroline was able to customize the tour for me and gave me detailed information on where to meet my guide Phil. Phil was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge and friendly personality. I highly recommend utilizing their services for touring London and will do it again whenever I’m there.

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Alex. He showed us all of the major sights of London as well as some hidden gems. We stopped frequently to learn about the amazing sights and had a fantastic lunch break at Borough Market, the street food was incredible. I was only able to be there for one day but I felt like this tour let me see so much of London that it felt like I made the absolute most of my time there. I got a great feel for the city, the history of the buildings and of London, and feel in love with it all. It was such a great experience, I would highly recommend anyone to take this tour even if you have been to London before.
