Excellent Modern Architecture Tour

This was a fantastic Sunday morning walking tour. The good weather was complimenting the tour. Our tour guide Mickey was very knowledgeable and showed us next to the famous architectural buildings some very unusual not so well known buildings. The group was very small (3 people), which I really liked. It was like a personalized tour for a smaller price. I can recommend this company. The service is excellent and fast.

5/5 stars
Excellent, detailed tour.

We were lucky in that it was just the three of us. Our guide Warren was really friendly and spoke English in a way that was really easy for us to understand, and he also took our requests into account. We had a highly interesting morning. Due to many questions on our part Warren extended the tour by about an hour at no additional cost!! The tour was really great, even for us laypeople.

5/5 stars
Excellent. Recommended.

Felt like being led around town by that one teacher back in school that even the bad kids listen to cos he's just so funny and passionate about the subject! I went with my girlfriend who is from London and found it just as insightful as I did. WE saw a lot of the most recent developments on the London landscape including the Shard and the Gherkin and learned all about the historic roots of the city's modernity. Definitely recommend it to anyone! :-)
