I highly recommend this tour. Laura is so knowledgeable and goes above and beyond. Not only did she provide great details about the landmarks and city, but went further and recommended dining and shopping places, as well as insider information.

I strongly suggest Laura's tour. Actually I suggest Laura and all her tours. Laura is of course knowledge as all guides are however she has the personality for being a guide . Understanding what our group needed immediately upon meeting us she tailored our tour to suit us . Although we knew very little about London and it's history Laura's explanations were to the point. Her English pronunciation is easy to understand as we are not native speakers, Laura speaks clearly using understandable vocabulary. She is friendly and patient with everyone even if we asked questions about what she had already talked about and repeated herself again . She is like having a friend showing you around her home town. I only wish we had more time together. She went beyond what is expected from a guide in order to please us. We will return to London again because Laura has inspired us. Thank you Laura

I would highly recommend Laura's walking tour. Excellent route and map. Laura's knowledge of London is impressive, as she imparted known and some quite unknown/unusual facts about London. Laura is good-natured and confident. She was also very helpful in recommending places to visit and dine. The walking tour was extremely good value for money and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great trip loved the walk, shame it drizzled, it was still well worth while just the 4 of us, it was like a private tour and Laura answered all our questions. She took us through the history of London from Romans to the present day and gave us royal inside information. Cheap for 2 hours in London.

Great walk learnt a lot was v enjoyable. Included top attractions, and saw the changing of the guard as a bonus.

A five star tour with Laura. Her knowledge of London is extensive and she conveyed it in an informative and interesting manor. The sights visited I would deem as some of London’s top attractions. I highly recommend.

Best tour I have been on for many years. Group was just 2 of us, so effectively a private tour. 2 hours whizzed by. Loved the map, recommend 5* you won't be disappointed

The 2 hours with Laura flew past. Fascinating history of the royals, we saw the changing of the guards at St James's palace. Buckingham Palace was great with all the stories and history. Worth spending the 2 hours recommending to all my friends who visit London
