This was our first London walking tour, and we’ll definitely be doing some more when we visit the capital.

Our friends had booked the tour, so we decided to join them, and we’re so glad we did. It’s a running joke that I’m a bit of a historical plaque reader, so this tour appealed to my thirst for knowledge about this amazing city.

Rozie was our tour guide and she was friendly, charming and engaging. Extremely knowledgeable and made the group feel very well looked after during our walk together.

London has so much history, around every corner, and this was definitely the case on our tour. You’d definitely not be able to catch this on a bus tour. We found a secret Romanish bath, a closed tube station, the churches of St Clements and St Bride, the Knights Templar and Temple areas. Fleet Street and incredible architecture of Sir Christopher Wren. I could have literally walked for hours!

I will definitely be booking another tour with this company in the future and would highly recommend Rozie as your tour guide. Thanks so much Fun London Tours and Rozie.

Hi Nicky, great to hear you had such an awesome time on the Hidden London tour with Rozie. The fact that you are an avid plaque reader suggests that this kind of historical but entertaining tour is right up your street! See you again soon.

We went on the Changing of the Guard tour with Matt as our tour guide. It was an outstanding tour and Matt was knowledgeable about everything. He got us situated in spots where we could see all the guards and answered every question thrown his way. He didn’t just take us up to the gates of Buckingham Palace and leave us, but rather strategically walked us around to locations where we were able to view the old guard, the new guard, the mounted guard and we walked along right beside the band. Would recommend time and time again.

My husband and I went on this fantastic Hidden London Walking tour. Our guide was absolutely brilliant, so much knowledge and stories about a part of London we have always missed out, told with humour and obvious love of the subject. We enjoyed it tremendously and would recommend this tour to anyone who loves delving into the history of London.

We did this tour yesterday and loved it. Jess was very informative and made it all the better with his easy delivery. When the tour ended we went straight back to an ancient pub he’d shown us to see Polly the parrot, whose story had featured on the tour. We would recommend this tour highly.

Fleet Street is certainly full of fascinating and old pubs, and seeing Polly the Parrot is always worth the trip! Glad you enjoyed the Hidden tour with Jess, hopefully see you again soon.

This was our second walking tour with funlondontours and as good as before. Quite a lot crammed into a short time which overran but we were warned that might happen in advance. It did but we were all fine and appreciative of the tour guide's enthusiasm and knowledge.

This made our 3 hr return journey into London worthwhile and a walking tour company which again exceeded our expectations and to whom we will return and continue to recommend.

We engaged Fun London Tours for a private tour for my husband's birthday. There were 9 of us in our family group and Jessie was our guide. He was fantastic! So full of fascinating stories and witty anecdotes. Matt was very responsive and easy to deal with when making arrangements by email back in Australia. We would thoroughly recommend this excellent tour.

Matt was our excellent guide on this surprising & fun walking tour of Hidden London.
My girlfriend & I thought we’d give it a try & we weren’t disappointed. Will definitely do it again.
Matt was so informative a wealth of knowledge but I don’t want to give you details. It might spoil it for you
The group was very mixed a couple of ex taxi drivers an ex military couple all sorts from all over. About 15-20 of us
It was fun & surprising that we hadn’t realised what secrets were all around us in the middle of London.

Great review, thanks Heather. You definitely were a fun group, some very knowledgeable people and your rendition of 'oranges and lemons' was second to none! It's always great when the group gets on so well together, and it was wonderful for us after the last 18 months to have a tour at maximum capacity. Hope to see you again on another walk in the future.

Our guide was Matt, who was very friendly and informative. And also took the time to talk to us individually as we went along the tour. It was good to see the not-so typical London sights but would 100% recommend for anyone to see.

Thanks for lovely review Abi! As there were only six people on the tour it was really great to have a chat with you all as we went around. Nice to point out a few Harry Potter film locations to you as well! Hope you both have had a great stay in London.

I took the Hidden London Tour with my 16 year old son earlier this week. I can't recommend this tour enough. It took us to hidden areas we haven't yet discovered despite having lived in London for years. The tour was fascinating and entertaining at the same time and Rozie, our guide, was excellent in keeping us hooked throughout. It was so good that even the constant rain didn't manage to spoil it. The fact my teenage son enjoyed it and wants to go on another tour now, says a lot. I recommend it to anyone visiting London but also to Londoners. And it's a great afternoon out with teenagers - mine definitely enjoyed it.

Matt led us on the Hidden London tour which was a FiveStarDays gift. We really enjoyed it. Matt is an enthusiastic and engaging guide and spoke loudly and clearly. He took us to places we never would have seen otherwise and has clearly done lots of research to find interesting stories which were well told. There was a great variety to the places we visited and Matt was able to answer the questions we had. We'd highly recommend this tour and would consider trying another Fun London Tour in future. Thanks Matt!
