London Walks offered the best tour service for absolutely the best price in London.
First the price: for adults the walks are only 9 pounds per person, which is a great deal. Secondly, you can get one of their Walkabout Cards for an additional 2 pounds and every walk you take after that is only 7 pounds. This truly is an excellent deal given how much time and information each guide provides.
As for the walks I took, the first day I went on the tour of the Victoria and Albert Museum in the morning and the tour of the National Gallery in the afternoon. Both tours were conducted by the most knowledgeable, informative, and interesting guide called Margaret. She was a delight! Both museums have so much to see that one could be there for days and not see everything. With London Walks, you get to see the highlights and learn about them as you go, without feeling overwhelmed by all of the pieces on display. This was perfect for me, as I was only in the city for less than a week and I wanted to get as much out of the London cultural scene as I could. I definitely felt like I got a great deal out of each of those tours and learned so much from someone who was clearly an expert.
The second and final day, I took the tour of Old Westminster with another guide (whose name I am ashamed I cannot remember) who was also quite brilliant and extremely informative. It was a very cold and windy morning in London but she was so interesting and fun to listen to that I don't think we much noticed the weather as we walked around Westminster. This is a great tour to take if you also, as I did, only have time for the highlights but want to learn about Westminster Abbey, St. James Park, Buckingham Palace, etc. I was also able to take a lot of wonderful pictures on this tour, which I also loved.
Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with London Walks and recommend them to everyone I know when they take a trip to the UK. I look forward to taking more of their walks on my next trip back!
