This tour was perfect! I only had 2 days in London and I am so glad I chose this 30 sights tour. Our guide Clint was warm, funny, approachable, and so incredibly knowledgeable! It was so great to see so many historical sights, memorials, and landmarks while learning about them all. It was a perfect way to see the most things with not a lot of time. And we loved all of Clint's stories and not-so-well-known tidbits of information! I especially enjoyed that the tour was limited to 10 people and the leisurely pace was great. Clint was open and wonderful about all our questions and even stuck around after the tour to offer suggestions on restaurants, directions, etc. I cannot say enough great things about Clint and our 30 Sights of London Tour - Highly Recommend!

The tour was really really amazing - and all of that after a long night. But the guide Jason Tanner was so funny and interesting that i was not even tired anymore. He knew the exact positions to stand to see most of any atraction. All in all i would give 10* if i could. Really great!! (As well as for GetyourGuide)

A great way to see the highlights of the city and learn about the history. Tour was great and our guide (CHRISTOPHER) was even better!!! He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour! Definitely had a great time, 10/10 would recommend!!!

They were extremely kind and helped me a lot when I had questions. I appreciate a lot their effort in making me feel safe in my first trip alone.

Chris was an amazing guide, and we enjoyed our walking tour. He was energetic and informative, and I learned a lot in 5 hours. Thanks!
