Our guide Ollie was fantastic! He was energetic, engaging, entertaining, and well education in history and tradition of the UK. Moderate pace, plenty of photo ops and rest breaks. I would definitely recommend this tour as a started. It will help plan the remainder of your trip. Do yourself a favor... ask for Ollie.
What an experience. We hit all the cool spots in London, learned so much history from our tour guide and got additional recommendations on places to check out! This is a must do; such an easy way to see the history of the city. Thank you Emily for a great tour!

Best tour of my trip!
, Sep 2019
I have to say that seeing London from the seat of a bike is the way to go. Mickey was excellent! He knew his way around perfectly, he knew London history in depth and then some and took us to the best pub! He hits all of the major sites and times them with whatever function is occurring that day. Loved, loved, loved this tour!!!

Jack the Ripper Tour with 'Ripper-Vision' in London
Entertaining and knowledgeable
, Feb 2020
Johnny, our guide, is such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable Ripper expert. Perfectly dressed for the event, and a perfect level of humour that offsets the grim reality of what actually happened to the poor victims.
Mick was so outstanding! An expert, very passionate about his topic, personable, friendly, helpful, and theatrical to boot! I shouldn't have even deliberated on this one and I'm so glad I went! Even with a very large group he was easy to hear and gave personal attention to each. He made the streets come alive! I couldnt believe the dates and details he could rattle off not just about Jack but serial killers in general, without notes! The pubs in the area are great too
Jamie did a wonderful job; he had his information down cold and was highly knowledgeable. The tour has a definite feminist slant to it, which is incredibly refreshing and makes the whole thing more poignant.

We had lots of fun touring both sides of the River Thames on electric scooter. We covered a lot of ground in a couple of hours - much more than if we were walking. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. One piece of advice - make sure you know how to ride a bike and can stay balanced on the scooter as you will need to weave around a lot of people.

I would give our tour guide Ben 100 stars if I could! He was engaging, informative and funny. This tour helped you understand the history and politics of London in an interesting way. Good starter tour!
Great area coverage, views and insights. Guide was knowledgeable and professional. Pace was more speed walking then walking, older folks struggled to keep up and it ended 30 minutes sooner then stated when tickets were purchased. Learned and saw quite a bit. Would definitely recommend but without the speed walking for the older/slower folks.

Royal London Walking Tour: Early Access Tower of London & Changing of The Guard
So worth it!
, Oct 2019
The last time we came to London, the line to get into the tower was over 2 hours long - I so wish we had known about the early access tickets! We were able to get up close and personal with the jewel exhibits, armour, and other pieces without feeling rushed our crowded. We got some amazing pictures of the winding alleyways throughout the tower with not a single person in them. It was an amazing time. Our boat tour and walking tour around Buckingham was charming, due to Amber's personality and knowledge of all things London. She is a great asset to your company and this city!
Amber was a great tour guide, and very entertaining! She was super informative and energetic. We learned so much in a seemingly short amount of time. Getting early access to the Tower and the cruise down the Thames alone made this tour worth the price. I also liked that it was only a half day, leaving ample time to squeeze other attractions and activities that day; definitely a good choice if you're only in London a short amount of time like we were.

, Oct 2019
Amber was fantastic with her knowledge of the history of London, and cruise of the Thames. We got early access to the Tower and Crown Jewels. Missed the crowds by taking the Viator tour. Buckingham Palace, and changing of the horseguards was great! Amber was very knowledgeable and patient with those who had difficulty walking.

My kids (10 and 7) loved it!
, Jan 2020
A friend and I went with my two children (10 and 7). We all loved it. Our guide Kate was fantastic and really made an effort to talk to us all and tell us anecdotes while we were walking between places. The fact that we were put into houses and asked trivia questions made the whole experience much more fun. We were taken to some really nice spots of London too that we never would have discovered if we hadn't done the tour. For the price I would definitely recommend it. My kids loved it!!!
Had great fun on this walk around London. Our guide Riccardo was great and showed awesome knowledge and gave really good insights into the Harry Potter filming and inspiration sites on the tour. Our 11 year old enjoyed the whole tour and was engaged by the questions and the content as were her parents on the historic areas of London. Recommend this tour if you want to see Parts of London off the beaten track and learn a thing or too. Good value!
Our guide, Natalie was very dedicated and enthusiastic. She engaged the participants with Harry Potter trivia throughout the tour and pointed out numerous landmarks that were featured in or inspired by the Harry Potter books and movies. She also showed us other famous areas in London as well. Our 10 year old daughter loved it!
Harry Potter fans don't want to miss this interactive walking tour in London. With a guide, be sorted into one of the four magical houses of Hogwarts and then go on an exploration of the city's filming locations. When booking, select your preferred time of departure and day of the week.
not very exciting tour. we walked and took the tube through central london. main talking points of the guide was how to get on/off the tube. The ride on the thames that featured in the promotional video didn’t happen, neither the entrance to leaky cauldron. All in all quiet disappointing, but we did see a bit of London.
Step into a wonderland of wizardry on this Harry Potter walking tour. Trek through muggle-run London to visit beloved literary and cinematic landmarks such as Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron, and Platform 9¾.

Secret Food Tour in London: London Bridge and Borough Market
Secret Food tour with Melissa
, Jan 2020
Borough Market was hopping on a Saturday afternoon! Melissa had a big group of us but she managed with grace and made sure everyone enjoyed. The food and drinks were awesome and the experience was lots of fun. Would do it again!
I've visited London several times in the past, but somehow I've never made it to Borough Market. It's now a new favorite of mine in the city, and this tour gave a wonderful introduction of what makes this market so special. And the food...oh my goodness, the food was beyond outstanding. We did do a bit of walking beyond the market as well, and visited a super charming pub just underneath London Bridge and a bit of the neighborhood around as well. Our tour guide was lovely, and this was a wonderful way to spend a few hours getting to know London better.
Get a taste of British food, from timeless recipes to creative new cuisine, on this walking tour of London Bridge and Borough Market. Follow your guide to local pubs, market stalls, artisan stores, and bakeries to sample British cheese and chutney, fish ‘n’ chips, and award-winning Lincolnshire sausage. Wash it down with London ale or cider, then indulge in a portion of treacle sponge pudding or some tasty homemade fudge.
Ideal for travelers seeking an alternative experience of London, this half-day bike tour allows you to stray from the beaten path and discover local London. Focusing on the lesser-known east side of the city, the tour covers the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and the industrial Dockyards. Browse enticing food stalls at Borough Market, cycle across the iconic Tower Bridge, and admire the latest additions to London’s skyline, including The London Shard and The Gherkin.
Excellent tour of Westminster Abbey, the tour guide offered an extensive background and history of the Abbey. Unfortunately, the House of Parliament was closed. However, I believe doing both tours would have been a bit much for my group.
Had booked the combo tour of Westminster Abbey and Houses of Parliament. The Westminster Abbey was a detailed guided tour. The tour to the Houses of Parliament starts immediately after the first tour ends. There was no time given to do some souvenir shopping inside the Westminster Abbey souvenir shop except a short bathroom break. The tour to the House of Parliament was an audio guide tour and not a guided tour as I was expecting. That was disappointing as it would have been good to have a guided tour inside the Parliament. The tour guide was knowledgeable but the tour could be more engaging rather than rote commentary. Have been on other tours where the guides are more engaged with their tour group. Would recommend other tours that have this package.
Get acquainted with two iconic London monuments on a half-day tour of Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. While gaining fascinating insight into the royal history of Great Britain, absorb the Gothic grandeur of Westminster Abbey’s interior and head inside the Houses of Parliament—home to the renowned Big Ben—to see highlights like the House of Commons and Lord’s Chamber. From your guide, learn about the United Kingdom’s political system and major historic events while touring the prominent landmarks.
London Pass Including Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour and Access to Over 80 Attractions
, Jan 2020
It was a great purchase. Easy to use and allowed us to go to things like the Shard that I would probably not spend extra money on. The audio does cut off if the bus goes on to the next point so it wasn't as informative as it could be as we kept getting just half the information
This is always a great way to get an overview of the city. I so wish the receipt could be a bit more substantial, like a credit card. The paper receipt is so flimsy and difficult to manage with weather and other personal paraphernalia.

Did this in Oct. A great cool crisp night. Perfect for this tour! John was great with lots of detailed knowledge of all the crimes Very passionate about the story. Stopping for fish and chips was a nice treat. Was a surprise for my husband who loved it as well. Would def recommend to others
Our guide on this tour was John. He is extremely knowledgable and a very passionate story teller. The tour itself was very good, but John made it even better. As an added bonus, we stopped for a small serving of authentic fish and chips. We highly recommend this tour!
Our driver Nicholas and our tour guide Rhys were friendly and perfectly punctual for the beginning of our tour. Rhys is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour, from the short bus trip past some major historical points of interest and points of interest which are key to the story of the white chapel murders. The vox box system was perfect to be able to hear our tour guide as we walked the narrow darkened streets and the fish and chips was a really brilliant extra! Nicholas’ driving through the streets must be commended also, safety was high on both of the driver and tour guides agenda. Highly recommend this tour even if your not a “ripper” fan, you will be afterwards 😜
