We've joined a lot of walking and guided tours while visiting other countries over the years and thought we would try one in our own Capital City. We were seeking a tour with someone who was native to London with local knowledge who could show us places not on the normal tourist trail and give us an insight to London from a Londoner's perspective. Stuart delivered on this and some! He led us to some gems of places, most of which we wouldn't have known about and it was a joy to be on such a relaxed meander. Stuart is great company and the whole tour felt like we were being shown little known places by an old friend. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour and I am sure Stewart enjoyed it too. We would recommend Stewart to anyone looking for this type of tour in the knowledge they would enjoy the experience.

Excellent walking tour of London

A very competent guide took us on foot to the most important places in the most interesting area in London and gave us a lot of information. We saw a lot and learned new things, better than you could have experienced on a bus tour. We will definitely recommend this!

The successful conclusion of a 5-day trip to London. Absolutely recommendable. Uncomplicated and super friendly
