Have just spent the most magical morning with Maxime and I couldn't recommend this trip highly enough - Maxime is just a joy - passionate, enthusiastic, utterly knowledgeable whilst also being the most delightful person to spend the time with! I've learned more about my home city with Maxime and I will be back to do more tours! It's a morning I'll treasure and never forget !


A general public visit accessible to everyone. Original, educational and interesting course. In short, a professional visit by a guide who is not stingy with his good addresses. 😁Thank you very much!


Maxime est un excellent guide ! Nous avons pu découvrir la City de Londres sous un autre angle. La visite est très bien organisée, les lieux regorgent de petites histoires et d'histoire.


Nous avons fait la visite historique de la City avec Maxime et cela a été vraiment agréable et instructif. Maxime est très gentil et à l’écoute des intérêts des participants. Il a su adapter la visite à nos goûts. Nous recommandons fortement. 😊


Notre guide Maxime, conteur d'anecdotes, d'histoires et de légendes, était au petit oignons pour nous transmettre ses découvertes et sa passion pour la ville monde. Nous avons passé 2h30 en plein coeur de la cité, cœur historique, entre la tour de Londres et la Cathédrale Saint Paul. On reviendra découvrir les autres circuits !
