Highly recommend - learning in the most fun way
Jun 2021
Mark gave as an amazing tube tour which I enjoyed from the very beginning until the very end! So many interesting facts, super nicely explained in a way that sticks. With his humour and fun facts, Mark truly made this an experience and I can only highly recommend to everyone visiting or living in London - no need to have a special tube interest - you'll learn everything you need to know!

Engaging, informative, a great tour
Jun 2021
Really entertaining and informative tour, thoroughly enjoyed by both my son and myself. Our guide, Mark, was really knowledgeable, answering all questions we put his way and made the tour really interactive with some very interesting questions of his own to us!

Would highly recommend for anyone interested in the history and development of the underground.

Mark, our guide, was thoughtful (checking we had all we needed before the tour, such as water, loo break, etc) and looked after us well throughout. He was knowledgeable and communicated his knowledge with a balanced mixture of fun, historical facts and interesting anecdotes. This tour is suitable for all ages 🤩

Entertaining
Jun 2021
Entertaining 2-hour trip with Mark on the London Underground. The group was so amazed on how fascinating it has been to offer the wonderful underground system that we have today! The tube stations carry so much history and some have little mysteries in between stations you’ll find yourself trying to spot what lays ahead in each stop!
Thanks Mark for all the tips and amazing company 🙂

London Underground - informative walk
Jun 2021 • Friends
Great tour. Very interesting and informative. Mark was a fantastic guide, we even took him for a drink afterwards! Not too much walking or steps - just right. Would do it again or another of their walks.
