Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing experience. So unique, so thorough. A really nuanced and engaging method for getting into the city's depths. Loved every minute.

Thanks for the kind words – I am so glad you enjoyed it. It was lovely meeting you and, as I said at the time, this evocative route is not often walked by Londoners – they are really missing out! All the best, and I hope to see you again next time you are here, Jane

I've been on several of Jane's walks. Her friendly and amusing style is backed up by a wealth of well-researched knowledge. The walks are both very entertaining and educational.

Just finished Jane's Twixtmas walk from Highgate to Oxford Circus. It was a relaxed stroll through North London with a friendly group. Unfortunately I had to leave early but loved the tour and Jane's enthusiasm and knowledge. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the feedback. It was lovely meeting you. Despite a bit of rain at lunchtime on that day just before the lunch stop, most of us made it to the end for a post-walk pub chat near Gt Portland Street. It was a very jolly day. I hope to see you again. Kind regards, Jane.

I've been on a number of Jane's walks, most recently the Ghost Signs of Covent Garden and Willesden. I thought I knew these areas pretty well, but I was mistaken. I couldn't believe how many signs and stories about these locations I have been missing! Jane's walks are very well researched and well paced. Both informative and entertaining , usually with a chance to chat further over a pint at the end. Thoroughly recommended.

Hi, a new Visitor!
I would like to share with You my experience with Jane)

Well, it was a tour of Art Deco from the 1990s and I found it very interesting!!!
I'm a student of Architecture and it was very helpful for me, but even if You are a person who likes to spend time, it will be a very successful spending time, because Jane...She is an amazing person, who knows the all answers to all questions)))

I recommend visiting at least one tour with Jane, You will love her positive vibes and how she is careful will take You from the present time in distant years of history!!!

Hopefully, You will enjoy your fab tour!

Best regards,
Miss Iry!!!

Went on a ghost sign, walk with Jane from Holborn through Covent Garden and up to St Giles.
I thought I knew this area well, but Jane had really done her research and showed us everything from an old tobacco factory, a Masonic School, harness makers, old car showrooms, scenery painters and a garage catering to the French community in Soho. None of which I had noticed before. Jane is erudite and enthusiastic, and I had a great afternoon…… And I now know where to buy my next best hat.
Outside Holborn station.

What a lovely review! It was a delight sharing with you the details that make London so uniquely interesting. I hope you can join me again another day for more of the same, but different. And 'erudite' – ooh, that's a much-underused word these days – thanks! All the best, Jane

This was the first of Jane's tours I've been on (Ghost-signs in Fitzrovia), and it really was most enjoyable. I've always liked to explore the side streets, and it was good to be with a bunch of like-minded people and to have Jane pointing out the many interesting features which we might not otherwise have noticed. I'm just sorry that I couldn't have stayed on for a bit longer at the end (the walk finished at a pub, and I think most of the others stopped off for a drink, but I needed to get home by a certain time). Highly recommended, and I'll certainly be signing up for more of Jane's walks in future.

Thanks for the kind words. All my tours area about sharing observations and ideas, and the research is never-ending as new things come to light, especially so in the case of ghostsigns that might have been covered up for decades. I've got lots more walks on that theme, as well as architectural routes and others about interesting people, so please do keep an eye on my diary.

This was a clever idea for a walking route, which incorporated lots of interesting detail and fun facts. Jane had clearly done a huge amount of research, and her enthusiasm for her subject really shone through on this entertaining walk. She was very approachable, and we intend to go on other walks with her.

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to seeing you again. I try to add to my schedule almost weekly but rarely plan more than six weeks in advance, so please do make suggestions if the route you are interested in isn't currently available.

I asked Jane to put together a 2hr walk around Rotherhithe/Bermondsey to start off my birthday party, and she did and awesome job! She’s got a brilliant style of tour, full of information and able to riff with questions and roll with them, discovering fascinating facts and history in a very conversational fun style! Her depth of knowledge is incredible! I would highly recommend doing a tour with Jane!

Thanks Chaz. I am always keen to share my findings and an absolute delight showing you and your lovely friends and family some less-trodden streets in Bermondsey. I hope the rest of your birthday celebrations was as good.

Jane is a great and entertaining guide with wealth of knowledge of the history and architecture of London. She is very engaging, walking with Jane is like walking with an old friend, the tour is both personal and professional. Highly recommended and will definitely come back for more tours!

I love that you have written "like walking with an old friend" as that is just what I set out to do. I look forward to another friendly exchange soon. All the best, Jane
