This was an excellent tour. Angus was a fantastic tour guide--very knowledgeable and very entertaining! I would definitely purchase one of these tours again.
Our guide was extremely interesting, and was very much able to convey the importance of the history of Old London as it relates to the subsequent influence on English culture itself. Since he is a London native himself, he was able to give us plenty of old English lore and a local's perspective about the things we were seeing. He seemed to convey a sense of value to the stories about the homes, castles, walls, and monuments we walked by. This greatly added to our experience as mere tourists. My knowledge of the English language is improved now because of the guide's descriptions of the origins of commonly used English phrases like: Under the Table, London Bridge is Falling Down, and Ring around the Rosey. As proud Americans, we often do not often think about Britain and the real origin of the way we are as former English subjects. But when seeing The Old City of London and having the history explained, our own way of life becomes much more clearly explained and defined, as does the basis our own civil liberties and social expectations within an English speaking nation. I would hope that as Americans, we will continue to look to the British as an example of a peaceful society ruled by reason and discussion and one which employs an impartial government. Every American and citizens of English speaking lands must participate in this kind of tour and realize the amazingly important history it imparts.
Stef, our tour guide, was AMAZING! She was incredibly knowledgeable, energetic and fun. She explained and quite literally acted out the history of London on this fast-paced, fun-packed tour. Loved it!
Trevor gave an amazing tour of the Old City with fantastic detailed knowledge. He brought us through small lanes that your would never find on your own. He gave us extra time at the end of the tour. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide Angus Templeton was extremely informative. A great way to experience the city! We plan to take some of the other tours offered in the city and will definitely want Angus as our guide.
Our guide, Ali, was excellent with lots of interesting stories about the sites we saw. His way of describing the political and legal environment around 18th century Newgate was unique and memorable, great history lesson. This is a fast-paced walking tour, so bring good walking shoes and a bottle of water with you.
Our excellent guide John, really brought this tour to life with his theatrical presentation of the history of London. Very good value.
This tour led by Becky, was great fun and highly informative. I highly recommend this tour.
So much information and history!! Great guide ready to answer any question.
This tour was absolutely fabulous, you definitely should try it.
Our guide, Angus, was the most captivating guide I ever had.
You will get to learn many old London secrets, enjoy !
This tour was fantastic...... so interesting, the leader so enthusiastic and knowledgeable...... this tour was much more extensive than i had imagined - wear comfortable shoes as there was a huge amount of walking. London is dazzling and this tour really showed us that.
The tour was very interesting and informative. Our guide, Charlotte, was very good and interesting. The group was not big so we could ask questions. I learned new things about London old city which I never knew, even though I used to live in London when I was young.
I highly recommend this tour.
Angus was awesome. Wear your walking shoes, the pace is quick, but worth every step.
We had a great three hours with our guide Steph, so full of knowledge and with her bubbly personality she made our tour an unforgettable experience!
Es un paseo entretenido. La verdad es que llegas a conocer algo mas de las historia de LA City.
Tour took 3.5hr and went from Covent Garden to Tower of London. Our guide was a bit difficult to find at the start, so could have been more easily identified.
Our guide was personable, and had interesting stories to share. I felt that the tour could have covered a little less distance, as we were quite tired by the end.
