Want to know how the financial crisis really happened?Angry at bankers and politicians for what's been going on since the crisis?Interested in the hidden history of London?Forget Jack the Ripper and the London Dungeons, we show you the murky side of the capital’s more recent past.If you want to know how London came to be at the heart of capitalism, and the recent financial crisis, then join us on a tour. We have 3 tours running every month:- The City of London- Canary Wharf- MayfairOur tours are thoroughly researched so you can expect plenty of hard facts, but we try not to make it too heavy – there’s lots of lighter moments along the way. You don’t have to know lots about politics or economics. We’ll adjust the tour depending on who comes along. And often the most interesting things you’ll learn will be from other people on the tour…

I have been on all 4 current tours and have enjoyed them all with the Canary Wharf and Mayfair ones being my favourites, closely followed by the City walk and then I'm afraid the energy tour fell some way below the usual standard, but it might also have to do with the fact that I was on the first of...

A gentle stroll round the sights of some fairly hair raising financial scandals! Quite accessibly presented - the original script they use was written by a teacher - and the team presenting had enough knowledge to field some fairly technical questions.

The tour is amazing, and sheds light to one of the weirdest parts of the british establishment. The guys stick to the facts, and challenge for their listeners to go and read for themselves. In my country we call what this corp. does corruption. In London it is called tradition, I guess.

Despite the rain, which is testament to the skills of the tour guides, we spent an entertaining and informative couple of hours with our Occupy guides learning the obscure, the bizarre and the sometimes frightening history and now-story of this small but powerful (and hidden) part of London and Britain. Free education and thought-provoking but not dry, not didactic. Definitely... More

I went on the Energy Tour. Right from meeting in the slope of the Turbine Hall in the Tate Modern, it was a fantastic journey through the city with a lovely group of people, connecting places just off the beaten track with a fascinating history. Our fantastic hosts told the story of how we use energy as a society which... More

A wonderful tour through the murky underside of City of London which shines a light on the historical events that lead to its growth and how its vested interests have been protected to this present day. A big thank you to the excellent guides who provide their knowledge and time for free.

Couldn't hear what they were saying as both tour guides spoke very quietly so therefore cannot comment on the content. Not experiences tour guides seem to stop for ages at various places and hold up photos and speak about the photos for ages. Two hour tour and only stopped at 3-4 places so easy to work out how long each... More

Excellent interactive journey through the financial crisis and how everything links together - mortgages, debt, banks, credit agencies, regulator, etc. And now with a tax optimisation add on. The tour guides were friendly and funny. It's a fun learning activity if you're interested in the world and London's place in it. As good for solo travellers as groups of friends.... More
