One of the best tours I have been on. Natalie is so friendly and knowledgeable, even on the little details that make you remember a tour. I wish I could have her on every tour around the country. Next time I’m in London, I will definitely be booking another of her tours. Highly recommend.

I've had great time! Natalie knows so much about English history and speaks about kings and queens as if they were modern stars. Natalie showed the main attractions of central London and it was a very pleasant walk. She also recommended more things to visit at the end of the tour. It was very kind of her.

The tour was a pleasure, showing central locations in London in a new light even for someone having visited the city several times before! Natalie's enlightening guidance and humour made the walk memorable, and brought the city's history and present alive in a most inspiring way. She also provided great reading tips, and before my next visit to London, I am more tempted than ever to do a bit of extra reading on the history of the country's royal house... Warmly recommended for any and every visitor to London wanting to know a bit more of the magnificent sights than just their names. Thank you for a great experience, Natalie! :)
