Great Tour!

We very much enjoyed the tour and will recommend this to friends and family. There were fun, quirky tidbits shared by the tour guide that contributed greatly to the charm of the walk. Walking down these old London alleyways (and going to places we had no idea existed) was great fun. Thank you!

Enjoyed seeing some parts of London off of the beaten path and the stories that go with them. Our guide, Matt, was knowledgeable, personable, and professional. Engaged the group with information and history and happily answered all questions from the group. The tour wasn't rushed or difficult to walk. Would highly recommend if you like walking tours.

London brought to life - great tour

Excellent guide who took is round a part of London, which I have visited many times, snd showed me a new and interesting pls fix . He brought to life historical figures and also childhood memories. I was born in London but moved to Ireland while young. in the playground at school we played “ Orange and lemons “ and chopping off heads. At Clements church played us the tune and we re-enacted some of the childhood game . We walked the path of the fleet river and I remembered the “rivers of London “ books and “ fleet in them now posh and rich but tough “ We visited a taxi shelter like “ uncle Matthew “ are in with his cabbie friend in Nancy Mitfords book “Love in a Cold Clinate “

Hi Margaret, certainly re-enacting the infamous old nursery rhyme with you and the group was a highlight of the tour! Great to have you along and especially as it brought back childhood memories and evoked images from those books you mention. See you again soon.

The tour was very good. Guide was very knowledgable. Very interesting places. Would have been nice to go into the Templar Church as part of the tour.
icon Response from Host , Mar. 2022
Hi Karen, I'm glad you enjoyed the tour with us. We don't go inside buildings on our walks, but give you an interesting and unique perspective of the history on London's streets. Certainly Temple Church is interesting, but as well as costing £5 to get in, I feel it would take up too much time out of a 90 minute tour which is better spent elsewhere. There are many other places I would encourage visitors to go back to after joining the Hidden London Tour - St Bride's Church, Dr Johnson's House, St Clement Danes, the Royal Courts of Justice and Middle Temple Hall to name just a few. I hope you manage to pay them a visit next time you're in London!

From the moment we made contact, Matt, our guide, made us all feel welcome- His knowledge, facts and fun tales made the walk so enjoyable. Please if you have 1.5 hours to spare, take this guided walk. Looking forward to more discoveries in London.

Very friendly, professional and fun tour guide Danielle. Really interesting itinerary. We are Londoners but visited some places on this trip we didn't know existed. Really got the most out of a small geographic area, albeit a highly historic one. Great mix of facts and anecdotes which hit the spot for us. Thank you. Wouldn't hesitate to book again with this company.
