What a fantastic experience this was! Having done tours in other coutries like American and Vietnam, it was a novelty to book a tour for London. This tour was for a friends birthday and even though I booked very late, Jonnie the guide did not let us down. We took an afternoon tour starting at St Pauls and ending at... More

I gifted my 18 year-old nice with a short trip to London for her graduation and chose Jonnie as our guide in the hopes that he could somehow bridge the generations (I'm 55) and find ways to entertain and educate us both. His service went above and beyond my expectations! I'm sure I learned more in 1 and 1/2 days... More

Jonnie recently took four of us on a private walking tour of London. We started out in the St. James/Westminster area and after spending several hours there took the tube over to the Tower of London. Walking around London with Jonnie is like taking a walk with a good friend who happens to know everything there is to know about... More

This tour is for you! Jonnie is filled with interesting facts about East London. He pointed out street art that we never would have noticed on our tour, plus gave us a history of the neighbourhood. You will see art painted on chewing gum on the sidewalk (amazing) and visit a Victorian graveyard, learn about the Roman streets of London... More

We had a great time joining Jonnie's walking tour. He is funny, charming and has loads of knowledge about the area. I would also suggest booking Jonnie as your guide for other London walks which is what we Would like to do for our next visit to London.

Both tours with Jonnie were excellent.Did East London and Royals/government tours. Jonnie very knowledgeable and informative. You'll learn so much more than just walking around on your own.

We met Jonnie for a tour of London highlights and got so much more! Do you know where Queen Elizabeth shops for her hats? We do! Jonnie was knowledgeable about history, had funny stories and had a great understanding of what our family wanted and needed. I would have like to book an additional day, but our schedule was full.... More

Our family of 4 spent the day walking around London with Johnny, he is a peach! Really cued in to what our kids, ages 13 and 9, were interested in - funny stories, plenty of history and current London events. We even saw the Queen & William so thanks to Johnny for "planning" that little rendevous! Highly recommend!

A really informative tour that starts at St Pauls and heads via the Southbank round to finish at Monument. The tour guide had a crazy amount of knowledge on absolutely everything - there was barely a second in the entire three hours that he wasn't sharing facts and trivia. Definitely worth the money (it was pay what you feel, though!),... More
