Hidden gems is a fitting title for this tour. Our guide Chris was more than a tour guide, you could tell he lived and breathed london history. His expertise in the history of London most importantly liveries and guilds was eye opening. He tailored the tour to our interests starting with a breathtaking rooftop view of london skyline and st. Paul's cathedral. Dont miss! Bring your walking shoes, curiosity, and a great camera.

We saw so much of London! Rode the double decker bus to get us started then headed off to see Big Ben. We then walked around West Minster Church, and down to see the changing of the guard. We walked through two parks, and into the soho area. We were given recommendations on shopping areas and food! Our tour guide took photos as well. We enjoyed the day!

This tour is the best. We were only us four with the guide Tom who was great. He presented London to us from his perspective and took us to see things that we wouldn't have seen if he had not presented them to us. He changed his itinerary to accommodate us. He answered all of our questions. I greatly recommend this tour.

Horrible, do not, hire Flora for a guide. I paid for a tour on our layover in London, we travelled an hour across London to meet her, and she never showed. We called and texted her multiple times with not even the curtesy of a response. She should loose her tour guide license. DO NOT HIRE FLORA!!! We want a refund and our taxi fare reimbursed immediately!!

Tom was a sweetheart! Knew his stuff and gave you your money’s worth! Was very patient with my group taking in to consideration we just had landed from NY. Really knows how to read the room!

We had a great time with Luciana. She was an excellent guide and we were able to see things we likely never would have seen on our own.

Luciana was great. The fact that the tour was private made the experience way more appealing. My wife and I were jet-lagged but wanted the most out of our first afternoon in London. Luciana tailored the experience to what we wanted to do and was very knowledgeable! Thanks!

This was a great 3-hour tour of the city - hit all the highlights and was exactly what I was looking for. It was my wife and son's first time to London, and this tour gave them the opportunity to see many of the main attractions as well as some hidden spots that we certainly went back to later in the week. Luciana was wonderful - super insightful and followed up with an email with other resources for us. Certainly don't expect to dive deep into any one thing on this tour but it is perfect for a first-day understanding of the city and where and when to go places. Luciana made it a great experience.

We had a fantastic tour of London with Tom! Tom was enthusiastic, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about the city and history. We also enjoyed getting to talk with Tom about current culture and life in London. We felt like we got to see a lot of cool sights on the tour, and he even customized the itinerary to fit our needs. This was one of the highlights of our trip--would highly recommend it!

We booked this trip on Feb 18 for a tour on May 23. The morning of the event, we received an email for "Susy the Happiness Manager" saying that due to personal reasons, our tour guide needed to cancel, but we were offered a later time on the same day. we replied as instructed, but received no response. We then got another email from Susy saying they had tried to reach us by phone, but it went to voicemeail. How, I dont know. Our phone was with us 24/7 and no voicemail was left. We were given a number to call to reschedule, but when we called it went to VM. We left a message but no one had the courtesy to return our call. We got another email cancelling the tour all together. This left us with an empty vacation day. At the last minute, we were unable to book any other tours or events. How does a company cancel last minute, then make themselves unavailable by phone during the business day, and not return VMs? The unreliability of this company and lack of professionalism will keep us away permanently.
