Owner description: 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…

A really interesting and urgent tour of London. The tour put a lot of current world events into a geographical context, which is a lot less dry that it sounds – there were games and our guide was open to all sorts of questions. It mapped out the key financial spots of Mayfair, and went into a bit of history too...really great that it's free too!

A great free informative tour presenting in a historical context an important component in the preservation of the status quo. A very worthwhile and lighthearted opportunity to learn a little more about a subject that affects each of us, regardless of worldview.

Certain people won't like this tour, but then they are likely to be filtered out by the "Occupy" title in the first place.
We all thought it was really great chance to learn more about what actually goes on City and how it is governed and we appreciated the historical context. Actually, it made me interested enough to look up more after we finished.
Sure, the event could have had slightly tighter production, but these guys are working for free and they do a pretty good job.
Thanks again to Dan and Emma.

I was on the City tour with Emma and Dan and was thoroughly enthralled throughout. There's a good amount of historical and current facts and how it has impacted on the financial crisis today. A lot of information is given, but it is done in such a way as to make it accessible and entertaining. A great way to see the City.
