It was a tour organised by my partner as a birthday present. Have to say, was such a wonderful delight. Living in East London, we had no idea about all the treasures which this area had to offer.
Kevin, our guide during the tour, has such a remarkable command over history, which he narrates in an impeccable and engaging manner. To top it all off, he is really friendly and warm, which made the experience really pleasurable. Time literally flew by, whilst learning so much about East London and its famous pubs!!!
Definitely recommended and waiting to go on a guided tour with Kevin again soon!

Thank-you so much for your tremendous review. We're so glad that you had a good time, especially as it's in your neighbourhood. Kevin really enjoyed showing you around; there is so much to see isn't there. Everyone is always surprised!

Our guide, Kevin, was fabulous. He overwhelmed us with his historical knowledge of the area. He was able to answer all our questions. We spent 5 hours together but it didn't feel like it. It's obvious that Kevin really enjoys what he does. Definitely would recommend.

Thank-you Julie for your great review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour. Yes Kevin loves Wapping and the East End and there is so much unappreciated history and impressive sights to see. Thanks again for booking with Ye Olde England Tours.

Our guide, Kevin, met us at our local tube station and we set off for Canary Wharf, a new financial district of London. Kevin was able to give us some real insight into the transformation of this area since he was born and raised in the East End. We stopped at four historic pubs and even had the opportunity to go mudlarking, i.e., scavenging, on the shores of the Thames at low tide. This is an area that even many Londoners are not familiar with and Kevin provides the local knowledge along with an absolute wealth of historical background. Don't miss this one!

Thanks so much for your wonderful review. Wapping and the surrounding districts have so much history and interesting quirky things to enjoy that most people never get to see. We're so glad that you enjoyed the tour and I know Kevin loves that tour in particular.

I was interested in the Wapping/East East area due to a few recent reads. While in some ways it was disappointing in that so little of the old docks area is still intact, Kevin filled in incredible amounts of information so that you could wrap your mind around how the area might have looked 100 or 500 years ago. We wove in and out of the neighborhoods, along the river and former sites of the river, and by particular pubs and churches of note, and the historical detail Kevin provided along the way was just excellent. He even spent time taking me mud-larking (new to me). I really feel like this was a unique experience. I wanted to see the "non-tourist" side of London, and Kevin delivered.

Thank you for your fabulous review. We’re so glad that you enjoyed your tour with us and Kevin was thrilled as he loves showing everyone Wapping and the East End. It’s easy to see how London has more construction work going in than the whole of a Europe put together. We too get sad when some of the old places get redeveloped and though most of the docks are now very modern, hopefully some of the old cobbled streets, pubs, churches and warehouses give a bit of old atmosphere. You never quite know what you will find when you down to the Thames, anything from bones to Roman and medieval treasures to WW2 bombs! Thank you for booking with Ye Olde England tours and letting us show another side to London.
