A friend of mine recommended the guided weekend walks with Jonnie and so I took part of the sunday tour through East London.

I can definitely recommend this tour to anyone... More

My wife, daughter and I hired Jonnie to show us around the Westminster area of London (Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abby, Parliament etc) and thought Jonnie was extremely engaging, informative and interesting. He is easy going and yet professional. Email communication was always fast and he will work with you to tailor a tour that will interest you if you want.... More

My husband and I were in London this month, a city we know and love. I decided to contact Jonnie after reading reviews of his walking tours, and I am so glad I did. Jonnie is prompt, courteous, kind and knowledgeable. Our walking tour took us to sites we had never seen. Jonnie was extremely accommodating as well. He wanted... More

Jonnie was fantastic, a wealth of knowledge and very flexible. We wanted to get off the beaten path and get a feel for the Spitalfields and Shoreditch areas and that's exactly what we did. Jonnie gave us an excellent insight into its history but also into its dynamic present, showing us a huge range of the fantastic street art which... More

I've lived in London for 2+ years now but really wanted to explore some of the things we don't usually pay much attention to when traversing London Streets. Best way I could have spent my Saturday morning, learning about London history from someone who is genuinely interested and enthusiastic about it. Highly recommend Jonnie's tour...I'll definitely be doing the two... More

My partner and I are not the touristy type at all , so we decided to hire Jonnie to get a bit of the highlights of London. BEST DECISION EVER! Jonnie was so nice and friendly, super knowledgable about London, showed us some amazing hidden places that we would have never found on our own! He was really accommodating too,... More

We did the East London walk on Oct 16th with Jonnie, who connects knowledge with entertainment. This walk should be on the agenda of those who want to discover something off the beaten track. It was a real pleasure for me and my 11 year old son.

I'm new to this area and loved hearing all the details of the Brick Lane/Spitalfields area. Jonnie certainly knows his details, and he's very charming as well as making sure we all felt included. Thank you Jonnie!!
