Perfect intro to London - We ended up having Peter all to ourselves for this tour and it was the perfect way to introduce our teens to London! He kept them engaged and had interesting stories and commentary to make it interesting for them! He was very flexible with the plan and schedule and worked with our needs. Our boys both agreed it was hands down worth it in lieu of the canned recording tours you get with the hop off bus companies. Would highly recommend!

Great way to see all the highlights of London at your own pace - This was my first time in London, and my husband hadn't been there in decades. We only had a half a day to see the sights, and this walking tour perfectly fit the bill. We opted for the shared tour, but it ended up just being the two of us and our really nice, knowledgeable tour guide, Peter. He was attentive to our interests and let us set the pace for the tour. It was a good amount of walking, but for us, it was definitely doable in about 4-5 hours. Peter was well-versed in history, clearly loves the city, and even took us on a little side trip to see some amazing street art. Really fun walking tour -- highly recommended!

Excellent Tour - Meeting Peter was very easy. He texted us the day before to reconfirm time and meet up place. We loved this tour because Peter is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his city. We went to places that we, probably, wouldn't have known about or we wouldn't have been able to find on our own. Really nice photo opportunities, he was very helpful taking our photos. Also, he goes at a very nice pace. If you prefer to stop at a place for just a minute or five, that was fine. We stopped for lunch and a snack along the way. Though, if you can hold off and eat later, wait until you get to this amazing area called The Borough Market. It was busy, but they have so many different options to choose from. Thank you Peter!

Tour that exceeds expectations: must book! - Peter was INCREDIBLE. His tour was undoubtedly a highlight of our trip. We will book with him every time we visit London. He was delightfully personable and loaded with very interesting tib bits. I was traveling with 2 teens (not always an easy audience) and he was brilliantly adept at engaging each of us. Highly endorse this tour!!!
