Jonnie very easily accommodate our needs in terms of the time we had and our current knowledge bank of London (my mum know lots already!) and took us on a fantastic tour around the City of London. His knowledge is first rate, I only wished I could have had him write down all the facts he gave us. I highly... More

I very much enjoyed this walking tour around the Shoreditch area, which had an emphasis on street art, as well as the general history of the region. Jonnie was a great guide, fun and knowledgable and managed our largish group very well. He clearly has a passion for the subject and a passion for sharing it with others. I shall... More

Johnny took my family of 6 on a 4 hour tour of Westminster. He was full of information and kept my kids (ages 10-15) engaged the entire trip. Well worth the money spent to get the local flavor of the city. Would not hesitate to recommend him to a friend.

We had a great time last Saturday with Bowl of Chalk tour despite the cold in London. This tour was great, the three of us had different knowledge of London, and we all learnt a lot on different level. Jonnie's approach to London streets and history is insightful and full of anecdotes that makes the journey so interesting. The pit... More

I engaged Bowl of Chalk for a private walking tour of London--principally the Westminster area. Jonnie was very professional, knowledgeable, and entertaining. The tour was well worth the cost and I would highly recommend Bowl of Chalk.

We booked a private tour for us four (my boyfriend and I(20-30) and his parents(60)) and definitely would do it again! We learned extremely much about the history of London and the actual changes of the city (especially East London), got introduced to the great street art scene and enjoyed the personal talks in between. Jonnie was attentive to us... More

Even though it was a nasty rainy Saturday morning and we were three people (inlcuding me and my girlfriend), Jonnie was there motivated for the tour. His amazing anecdotal way of talking about the history between Trafalgar Square and St. Paul's Cathedral made many of the locations that we had already visited appear in a new light. Especially his knowledge... More

I would recommend this walking tour to anyone visiting London! My husband and I were traveling with another couple and it was everyone's first time in London. This tour was perfect! We would have missed so much without doing this. We chose the 4 hour tour. It was the best $ spent on our trip - excuse me, I mean... More

Finding tours that satisfy the adults and teens is challenging. I read about Bowl of Chalk and I had a good feeling. First, in a city that is so over priced for American tourists, Johnnie was very reasonably priced. Second, he was very flexible-- it was raining and he set a "no big deal" tone for me and our kids,... More
