  • Rating: 5 “Excellent Modern Architecture Tour”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bangkok, Thailand on June 10th, 2014 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.


  • Rating: 5 “Excellent, detailed tour.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from München, Germany on July 26th, 2013 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.


  • Rating: 5 “Excellent. Recommended.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Christchurch, New Zealand on June 20th, 2013 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! :-)


  • Rating: 4 “tour with tobias”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from winchester, United Kingdom on March 31st, 2013 the tour covered a lot of ground and most of the key modern landmarks in the city. I had tobias as my guide who seemed to know his stuff and did a good job explaining the context of londons modern cityscape. Great afternoon.


  • Rating: 5 “Modern Architectur Tour”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bracknell, United Kingdom on September 6th, 2012 I took the 3 1/2 hour Modern Architecture Tour and remained fascinated throughout every second. Of course it probably helps that I am already very interested in architecture anyway, but I also went into the tour expecting to already know a lot of the information. Well, I knew some, but there was a LOT and Warren answered every one of my nerdy questions effortlessly and with a smile!
