    Adrian was fantastic!

    Wow! This tour was really just the best way to see London in a day! We decided to come to London at the last minute on our way to Paris so we had no time to research things and we decided to book a tour that would cover some of the essential things to see but that at the same time was not going to be too mainstream.

    Neon, our guide was amazing and so interesting!! We were so pleasantly surprised to learn that he's actually a writer and journalist and only guides in his spare time because he loves showing people around. And it really showed because he was so keen to hang out with us and we had lots to talk about. I was initially worried that we were going to get a bored guide who was going to do yet another tour like yesterday's but it really was quite the opposite! It was such a joy to have Neon around to show us the city. And the tour was all about us. I really was not expecting that. Neon just went along with what we wanted to do and he took detours to show us things he thought we'd enjoy seeing without missing out on all the main sites.

    It was really cool to be able to take a turn and disappear from the mad crowds of tourists into beautiful secluded areas with hardly any people! I don't understand why some of these places are not mentioned in guidebooks! But that's fine by me as we can now say we've seen more of central London in one day than most other tourists. And we got some really good photos too!

    And the cherry on the top was getting recommendations from Neon on what to see and do on our last day in London that were off the beaten track. We had dinner at the Jugged Hare in Barbican a really interesting part of town btw! as we wanted to try real British food. And if you believe the stereotype that British food is terrible, then think again! We are converts!

    If you want to see iconic London without having to follow the crowds of tourists like sheep then this is the tour for you!
