What people are saying about The East End

Very good tour of London

We had John as our guide and were completely happy with the tour! During the bus tour through London, he told us a few facts about the history of London. In Whitechapel we then looked at the individual crime scenes. All in all, this tour was really good! John also made sure that we understood everything, we were the only ones who didn't speak English as a mother tongue. Can only be recommended!

Phil was a great guild with a lot of background knowledge. Fish ans chips were delicious. It could have been more fish. Unfortunately, the delinquent London got a little short. But it was still great.

The photography was about half an hour, Ewa photoed me and she is great. She recommended several spots and photoed very professionally. Very enjoyable photoing and wonderful pictures.

It is always surprising what kind of things are overlooked. Which has an incredible story or meaning. Street art is an art of the future.

yes really great and the tour guide was excellent would use the tour firm again
