Chris was a great guide. He was interesting, knowledgeable and humourous. It was informative and interesting. Changing of the Life Guard, view of St. Pauls, Parliament Square, Tower of London and Lobbs were high spots. I would recommend this.

My favourite part was learning all about the history of London and how it shaped not only the nation but the world as it’s known today. Sam was very knowledgeable about the different topics as he helped my mother and I complete our lists of things that we wanted to see

Our family of 5 did the full day London tour with Will and it was worth every penny!!! This was my 3rd time visiting the city (my family’s first) and I learned and saw so many things that I never knew. The age range of our group was 71 – 14 and Will kept us all entertained. If we were to go back, we would request him in heartbeat!

We just had a lovely day touring London with Will! He was so well informed and really catered our experience to the individual interests of our party — from London’s coffee house history to Harry Potter spots, to the Crown and Coco Chanel! Highly recommended for families, Will was so patient and kind to our sons (6 & 8). Hands down the best way to see the most of London!
