What people are saying about Brick Lane

Excellent tour!

I had Alice as a guide. Time passed us very quickly since it was very enjoyable and shared a lot of historical data about London. It was lovely to all the places where it took me. I have been to London several times and by far this tour has been one of the best if you want to know the non-tourist of London.

My guide was Kevin. Excursion on the theme of the markets of London. Everything was fascinating and very interesting. Besides the fact that Kevin met me near the house, and also took me home, he was also able to interest and show many beautiful places in London. Kevin also spoke quite clearly and simply.

A great experience, especially if you ask to taste it all, food, culture, history. Our guide, Neil provided lots of information and kept us smiling.
