"Tom was a fantastic guide—we felt like we’d known him forever, and having him all to ourselves meant we were able to have a really tailored dialogue. (And share thoughts on important news items such as ..the most recent Bond film, haha.) We saw some of the “must-see” attractions AND we were also able to have some truly unique experiences. Even though our heads were absolutely spinning with everything we saw and all the stories Tom told us…it would have been very easy to drag him to dinner with us and keep the learning going. Book a tour with The London Storyteller! My husband and I have been telling everyone—first time to London like us, or 50th time—I’ve no doubt you would learn plenty on this tour!"

"Tom is a very interesting, energetic, and professional guide. He definitely has the gift of gab. He was able to seamlessly mix history, current events and a good amount of my interests into the tour."

"Tom was very knowledgeable about the history of all the places we saw on the walking tour and told us many a story about London. He was passionate about his city!"
