Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Emma was an excellent guide. Delightful and entertaining. She directed us to the perfect spot to watch the changing of the guard. If I had been alone I probably would have gone where I say all the large groups of people but she assured us we would have the perfect viewing spot and we did. She guided us a perfect tour of St. Paul’s.

This was a great way to see these 3 major items in one day. Yes, a lot of walking, but we’ll worth it. Our tour guide Alex was excellent! He had a great personality! As a certified “ blue badge holder!” , he had a wealth of knowledge r/t our tour sites. He often added little stories r/t the venues we were in. He got us to a good spot to see the marching into the palace at the Changing of the guard. A great way to get a glimpse into these iconic places in London!

This is a wonderful walking tour with a very knowledgeable guide (Sal was our guide). We had a small group of 14 attendees which makes it very manageable as a tour. We began at Westminster Abbey and Sal provided interesting information about the various parts of the Abbey. It was phenomenal. We got to the changing of the guard right on time, enjoyed the boat ride on the Thames, and he guided us through the Tower of London. He has lots of stories and historical information. It was an excellent tour that I would highly recommend. Wear comfortable shoes as there is lots of walking.

This was an EXCELLENT tour. Guy, our tour guide, was fantastic!! He made sure we didn't miss a thing. He was informative, very easy to talk to and answered a lot of questions. Westminster Abbey was beautiful and the London Towers was the BEST! Everything in between was exciting to learn about. It was a great way to introduce us to the city on our first trip there. I enjoyed the walking instead of being on a bus. I felt we were able to soak up the city better. Definitely recommend, but be ready to walk!!

Nick was an excellent tour guide who had a wealth of knowledge. He was able to answer any question thrown his way. We had so much fun learning and exploring the city with him and our small group. What a great way to introduce my husband and myself to London. Highly recommend this tour! We have already recommended it to our family and friends - telling them to request Nick as a guide!

Sarah was knowledgable and was effective at keeping the group together. Saw all the major sites and the most enjoyable part for us was the afternoon boat tour along the Thames. It was wonderful to see Big Ben again since it's been behind scaffolding for several years. The walking pace was good!

If you use a FitBit or similar tracker, be prepared to walk approx 18,000 steps :)

Recommendation: consider a quick lunch (grab and go) rather than a sit down meal. We went to a pub that was recommended but did not find we had enough time to really enjoy the meal.

Because you do not clearly state upfront that it is a walking tour the entire time. For the price I expected to be on a bus and getting off at stops, had I know it was walking from 9am to 4pm I would not have booked. It. The price also would denote transportation. You need to clearly state this is a walking tour at the beginning this is a walking tour and you should start at the tour of London.

Our tour guide Guy was grey and is knowledge amazing.

Dear Ltiggertaz, Thank you for the feedback provided. We are extremely delighted that you have enjoyed the tour and the guide itself. We are doing our best to choose the best guides who will provide the highest level of service. The company is called "TakeWalks," which means we provide walking tours. The tour you have joined is a full-day tour, and there is a lot of walking involved. However, for this tour, there is transportation for about 35 minutes. You will drive from Westminster Pier to Tower Millennium Tier with the guide. During the walk, the guide is able to provide a more detailed tour and visit more places where it is impossible to drive so that you can take pictures and enjoy London in all its beauty. Best, Sasha

We loved this tour. It was my son’s first time to London and I was such a great way to hit several of the big things on our checklist in one day. We loved our tour guide and learned so much more than we would have if we had done the same things on our own. Everything was very organized and ran like clockwork.
