Very good tour of London

We had John as our guide and were completely happy with the tour! During the bus tour through London, he told us a few facts about the history of London. In Whitechapel we then looked at the individual crime scenes. All in all, this tour was really good! John also made sure that we understood everything, we were the only ones who didn't speak English as a mother tongue. Can only be recommended!

Phil was a great guild with a lot of background knowledge. Fish ans chips were delicious. It could have been more fish. Unfortunately, the delinquent London got a little short. But it was still great.

John was great, very knowledgeable and our driver Kyle was awesome! The fish and chips were excellent!! Highly recommend this tour!

Such a fun walking tour, lots of interesting facts and tidbits, and a really great guide!
