Out tour with Tom the Story Teller was great for us to get to know London a little. From the Clink prison , many stories of cathedral architect Wren, Shakespeare, the Queen’s black swans, Prince Harry’s fav tea shop, and secret places of the Royal family, our photos taken by Tom will help us remember and learn. Perhaps one day we’ll return for the Bond tour, or Pink Floyd. This was great for us, and matched my interests well, Many thanks!

What can I say?! The most INCREDIBLE day with Sorcha our tour guide. As soon as we booked this experience she reached out to us before our trip. Everything was customized to our requests and her recommendations were excellent. We were taking the Eurostar from Paris and only had one full day so our needs were likely different than others. Please request Sorcha to be your guide. In the end we felt like she was an old friend guiding us around London. I would 100% recommend this tour for anyone visiting!

My husband and I have never really travelled, but had brought our daughter to study abroad in London. Gregory planned an amazing experience filled with details about each place we visited. He took us to quaint, lesser known areas and opened our eyes to the city with a personal and fresh perspective. We met other locals during the day from shop owners to a volunteer chatting up the history of her beloved cathedral. He was easy going and thoughtful in a way that made us feel like we had known him much longer. We also loved that Gregory took photos of us along the way and offered suggestions for other interesting places to visit during the rest of our trip. This was most definitely our favorite day in London, and we would highly recommend Gregory and the with locals tour experience!

Luciana was amazing! We found her by sheer coincidence after having three tours cancel on us without much notice and after we had already arrived in London. Luciana was so knowledgeable about London's history, even giving us lesser known facts! She showed us some incredible "off the beaten path" spots which were charming and full of great experiences. Our time with Luciana was interesting, relaxed, and made our trip! We are so grateful to have found Luciana! She even followed up with an email of things to do and sites to see--which came in very helpful as our tours continued to cancel. Luciana, if you ever read this, THANK YOU for making London a wonderful visit for us in so many ways!

Luciana is passionate and knowledgeable about London. She is also a great story teller. Her ability to individualize and diversify the tour goes above expectations. I had a wonderful day seeing sights, hidden gems and learning interesting facts and history.
