Our experience was with Steven who is a great guide. He was very personable and had great stories during our tour. I learned so much about the history of London and the monarchy, it was amazing. We were also able to go at our own pace which allowed time to ask questions, have discussions and take any pictures we wanted. I would highly recommend this experience.

This was our 1st time in london and we are so happy we did this tour. We were lucky enough to have our Tour with Chris. Not only was he super funny and incredibly engaging but very knowledgeable. He incorporated his own life experiences as well as personal stories that gave this tour a really unique touch. My friend and I had so much fun and even though we were walking for 5 hours, it didn’t feel as long as it actually was. We loved taking selfies with Chris as well as seeing things we wouldn’t have seen on our own. I highly recommend this tour to anyone new to London!!! I can’t stress enough how great it was and how amazing Chris was!!
