Interesting but strenuous walking tour!

If you aren’t able to walk ALL day, do not take this tour. It’s strenuous exercise being on your feet all day. We did over 15000 steps!! But if you want exercise and a nice tour with a great guide, ask for Nick. He’s a gem. My husband who has a bad knee and back could not have done this tour.

We had a fantastic day with our guide Linda. Such a lovely lady and a vast knowledge of everything she was showing us- I don't know how she remembers it all!! Thoroughly enjoyed every minute and although it's a walking tour, we didn't feel rushed in the slightest. 100% would recommend this tour!

Nigel was a great tour guide, he was able to point out the interesting facts about the many things that we were seeing and not bore us with too many details. He really enjoys being a tour guide and that shows. This was the highlight of our trip to London. We enjoyed every bid of it, although there was a lot of walking involved.

We had an excellent time on our tour, we loved our tour guide. Restart it out at Westminster Abby, then onto Buckingham palace for the changing of the guard, and finally a boat ride to the tower of London!

This tour is described inaccurately on the viator site. Although the tour itself was very good , it’s disappointing to have not visited things as expected. It’s best to book through the company directly.
