Amazing City of London Tour
G6294LPneilf, 19-12-2022
Our walking tour of the City of London was fascinating from start to finish. Isobel not only knows her history of London but her wider knowledge made conversations all the more interesting. I cannot rate her enthusiasm and dedication any higher. My family and I had a wonderful afternoon even if the temperature never got above freezing!
Highlight of my trip!

This was the highlight of my trip to London. Isobel is an absolutely fantastic tour guide. Her knowledge and attention to detail is paramount and her stories really brought the City Of London’s history to life! I would recommend her to anyone planning to visit the city and very much look forward to coming back and doing another one of her tours very soon.
