Feedback from walking tours attendees

"I saw parts of London I had not seen before. The tour emphasized even more to me that London is a great city for architecture old and new. James, our guide was flawless!"

"I had been a keen visitor of the City over 20 years ago, but had not kept up with the new developments since. It was great to see how much life there is now"

"It opened my eyes to what surrounds us all the time but take for granted! I look up a lot more, as a result"
