“Awesome and informative trip”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Ike was very knowledgeable and introduced me to buildings I would have never known to exist in the back streets of London City. I am looking to do another walk to see what else I can learn. Would happily recommend this walk to anyone- it's a great way of discovering a little of London's history in a couple of hours.

“A fascinating insight into the real London”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

We had such a great time on our walk and learnt some really interesting facts.. not only about some of the incredible buildings we saw but also about the history and culture of London. Our guide Ike was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about everything he showed us on the tour and because he was a real born-and-bred Londoner (sometimes difficult to find these days!) we knew we were getting a real insight into this great city. We will definitely be doing another walk soon.. just need to decide which, as so many of their tours sound really interesting!.. maybe Art Deco London?
We're not architects so were both a bit worried beforehand that the tour might be slightly too 'technical' but everything was explained perfectly and has given us both a new fascination with buildings everywhere. And the little pub that Ike recommended to us at the end of the tour was a perfect hidden spot with real local atmosphere.. we couldn't have asked for better!

“We'll be back........”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

The Weather at the Day for the Tour was not the best, butt we forgott all about it because the presentation was very interesting!
There were a lot of facts and things you didn't know, it was really informative.
We all agreed to comeback back in a couple of years to see the site again and maybe attend the Tour again!

“The best "tourist time" I spent in London”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

It was the best tour I've had. Ike's walk and talk was full of facts and dates as well as insight of the local and professional view of an architect. It couldn't get any better

“Skyscrapers walk”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

I went on the skyscrapers walk around the city- it was really enjoyable and informative, covering not just the architecture of some iconic buildings but also the politics behind their construction. The guide was really enthusiastic and clearly knew his stuff! He managed to keep us captivated despite the below-zero temperatures. I would definitely go on another walk.
