After the confusion of not finding the guide as no red tee-shirt we really enjoyed this. It was just over 3 hours and he was excellent. We even got for 5 mins to go inside st Paul's just be fore a service. The guide was very knowledgeable and as there was only 4 of us in the group he answered all the questions and it felt really like a one to one tour.

Ivo was an amazing tour guide. Kind, warm, courteous and friendly. He definitely knows history and culture of the old city of London. Definitely recommend!!!

Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and relaxed making it very enjoyable to get an insight into a long and complicated history

Brilliant guide, we visited places we wouldn’t otherwise have seen, a lovely way to spend the afternoon.
