      Great value for money. Very informative and interesting. Our guide, Mark was engaging and highly knowledgeable.

      Our tour guide Mark was fantastic - he seemed to know everything about the history of the Underground. With a fairly large group trailing behind him in a very crowded tube, he managed to keep us all together, with only one person temporarily lost amid the crush. Mark was funny as well as knowledgeable, and we learned a lot. I would highly recommend this tour, especially with Mark as your guide.

      Excellent tour with a wealth of information. I enjoyed the tour guide’s manner asking Socratic questions of the participants, but perhaps a bit more contextual information might stimulate people to give answers. One minor issue was the logistics of the group going to different tube stops and so some became separated but mainly this was due to how busy the tube station was. We knew though where we had to go due to the guide’s attention so not a major problem. Overall, a worthwhile tour and excellent guide.

      A very enjoyable and informative couple of hours learning the history of the London Underground / Tube. Our guide, Mark, was very enjoyable and did a great job of passing on his knowledge to our party. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting London.

      My 3 American pals and I went on this wonderful tour of the Underground with Mark, who kept us engaged with origin stories and fun facts about the train system that is the lifeblood of London. Mark handled the potentially challenging format with expertise and ease - delivering a presentation over the chatter and chaos of the Tube is no small feat! The whole time he was lively, informative, and answered all our Tube-related questions. This tour gives you a healthy dose of London history, as well as a better understanding of how modern Londoners navigate their daily commute. Highly recommend!

      Entertaining, informative and professional tour led by guide Mark, full of anecdotes and facts. Felt this was a great way to get to know more about something we all take for granted when we visit London. Recommended for locals, commuters and tourists alike!

      Very informative and interesting, and learn a lot about something we take for granted - the tube (or London Underground!) , Great to actually stop and really look at the stations we went through and learning something about them and what some of the things are that we tend to rush by!
