Great tour! If you want to see the parts of the city that many people, including Londoners, don't know, take this tour! Lots of great historical information with fun trivia. The guide is friendly, knowledgeable, and gives a great tour. We all really enjoyed it
Easy walking, interesting places

Matt is an excellent guide. From meeting up outside Canon Street tube station on a Sunday afternoon, to saying goodbye at St Dunstans he was knowledgeable, informative and fun. A lovely mixed group of people, who mixed and chatted as we discovered alleys in het square mile that you may have walked past every day.
Fun and informative .

Really interesting and well presented by Matt. Found out stuff I never knew about London.
Sunday is a good day for the tour as the area is much quieter than midweek.
Some of London's secrets revealed.

My son and I really enjoyed Matt's informative and amusing commentary on this tour, which took us to places which we would otherwise never have known existed. There was a good mix of new and old buildings and environments included. Matt clearly loves London and sharing his passion with his guests. Great way to spend an hour and a half. Will almost certainly book another tour in future.
