I can't say enough about this tour. First, Jonnie was an absolute joy to walk around and see the sites with. Not only did he take us everywhere we wanted to see, but we saw tons of lesser known attractions you may not see with a major tour company. Also, it was nice to just walk and talk with Jonnie,...

Jonnie was fantastic! I would highly recommend this tour and the guide to anyone looking for a great way to see London and be physical at the same time. Jonnie did a great job keeping the tour light, funny, informative, and made unexpected stops when the crew needed them. He did not disappoint! It is a lot of walking, so... More

We went on a guided tour with Jonnie recently and had a great experience. Very easy to get in touch with and he gave us a variety of choices in terms of where we could go. We chose a tour around Fleet Street which we found extremely enjoyable and interesting. Jonnie is everything you could ask for in a guide.... More

We met Jonnie on our 5th day in London. Due to our scheduling and my late planning, we could not attend a weekend walk, so we booked a morning private tour for my family of 6 which included several teens. We toured Trafalgar Square, the Westminster area, Kensington Palace, St. James Park. At the time of the tour, my teens... More

This is the second time I've taken a private tour with Jonnie and I hope its not the last. The first time was an all-day private tour that ranged from Westminster to the Tower of London to the Southbank. This time we were more targeted and worked our way through Soho. Jonnie is everything you want in a private tour... More

A friend of mine recommended the guided weekend walks with Jonnie and so I took part of the sunday tour through East London. I was happy getting an one to one private tour and it was absolutely amazing. I could not imagine any better guided walk than the one I just experienced. I can definitely recommend this tour to anyone... More

My wife, daughter and I hired Jonnie to show us around the Westminster area of London (Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abby, Parliament etc) and thought Jonnie was extremely engaging, informative and interesting. He is easy going and yet professional. Email communication was always fast and he will work with you to tailor a tour that will interest you if you want.... More

My husband and I were in London this month, a city we know and love. I decided to contact Jonnie after reading reviews of his walking tours, and I am so glad I did. Jonnie is prompt, courteous, kind and knowledgeable. Our walking tour took us to sites we had never seen. Jonnie was extremely accommodating as well. He wanted... More

Jonnie was fantastic, a wealth of knowledge and very flexible. We wanted to get off the beaten path and get a feel for the Spitalfields and Shoreditch areas and that's exactly what we did. Jonnie gave us an excellent insight into its history but also into its dynamic present, showing us a huge range of the fantastic street art which... More
