Excellent and very enjoyable tour with Stephen of modern architecture from Southwark through to the City. Lots of fascinating facts and observations delivered by a friendly guide with an in-depth knowledge of the architecture, history and culture of the area. The tour was tailored as we went along to suit the particular interests of those in the group. Highly recommended.

Took the underground tube tour with Ben and had a great time. Ben was very knowledgeable about the history of the tube and was willing and able to answer my questions. Ben narrated the two hour tour in a form of seasons/chapters which was easy to follow but also remember. Great guy!

On Thursday 12th January my granddaughter and I took the Insider London underground tour. Our guide Jonas was very knowledgeable, informative and friendly. I would also like to commend him for his patience as my granddaughter interrupted quite a lot with her own questions. The tour over-ran considerably but that was fine as Jonas had already checked with ourselves and... More

A 2 hour journey on the underground, explaining its history and showing some of its quirkier side. Visited nearly all of the lines (albeit briefly) with a great guide (Charlie). I've used the tube regularly but we learnt a whole load and realised how many things we had just rushed past before.

Took the London Underground tour with Jonas and learned a great deal - Jonas shared with us the history of the Tube's development, pointed out interesting sights at various stations, and took us from the oldest station to one of the newest stations to see the differences over time. Plus we learned about all the various design aspects used in... More

I was part of a group of Business students from Australia and we did the start up tour around Shoreditch and East London. Our guide, Dean, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area and industry. He spoke well to the group, pointed out a lot our other group missed and was super friendly and fun to engage with. The... More

I bought the tour of the tube as a gift for my girlfriend for Christmas. It was a real success – our guide Ben was extremely knowledgeable and made the experience very enjoyable. I've already recommended the tour to friends.

Tom was our tour guide, and he was energetic and fun and knew so much about the history of the Tube, how the whole system works, and even the architecture of the different stations. He invited questions and comments, and it's clear he loves what he does. Ask for Tom!

We are now looking at the London Underground in a whole new light! Tom is an amazingly knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide who made every piece of history exciting and detailed. We traveled lines we had already been on frequently on our trip but had never seen the history, art and design until Tom showed us the stories behind its... More

We've had a great tour with our guide Tom. His elaborate knowledge of the London Underground and his wonderful way of speaking entertained us for over two hours. A great way to spend in London. I would recommend this to all.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
