Quirky, fun sights in London.

The quirky little known facts about the sites. The guides story telling. Showing us photos on his iPad.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Story telling and quirky facts are a big part of the Secret London tour - it really is a journey into the lesser known history of our great city.

Enjoyed the walking tour - I am in London for my second visit, and I am trying to find the odd or out of place, or hidden about the city. It really intrigues me. I enjoyed learning about Casper the cat, and finally getting to see one of the noses - if you don't know, you'll have to take the tour.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Thanks for your review - Secret London is ideal as you say for people who want to discover the more unusual and unknown parts of London. And it's always fun discovering one of the noses!

I've worked in London for 36 years and yet never noticed the things Matt showed us. Would thoroughly recommend this tour, not a challenging walk so perfect as an alternative to shopping before dinner and theatre

It's always especially gratifying to show Londoners a new side to their city. Great to have you on the tour :)

Great tour - some interesting facts. Even as a Londoner, I didn’t know many of them at all. Some great sights and hidden areas. Matt was a great guide too - chatty and friendly and really knowledgeable. Also appreciated being able to bring my little dog along… I only saw the “No dogs” rule while we were waiting for the tour to start so really appreciated that
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hi Lorna, lovely to meet you on the tour, and I'm glad you enjoyed the tour with me. As for the dog - yes usually we don't permit dogs aside from assistance dogs, but as the rest of the group were so fond of him and he was soooo cute, I felt it would be ok on this occasion!

I enjoyed our London tour.

Meeting point was easy to find. Our guide was prompt. He pointed out many things that are just under the radar of the normal visitor. I took this tour because I’ve been to London many times before and wanted something different. Our guide showed us many things in the shadows of major sights. Many hidden gems. Information shared ran the spectrum from local facts and lore to worldwide historical facts. He even showed us some things that inspired Harry Potter stories.

Thanks loads for the review Daryl! It's a fascinating tour, and I'm really glad it provided you with a different perspective to this amazing city.

Fascinating little details
Rachael_C
, Mar 2022
Matt is very knowledgeable and was able to answer people's varied questions. Lots of interesting stories and exploring areas you might ordinarily walk right past! Not just for the tourist, if anything, made more interesting by the fact I knew none of the stories and I've been coming to London regularly since I was a child as I lived there until I was 2. Highly recommend.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Yes, I love it when people ask questions on the tour, it makes the whole experience that bit more personal and interactive. Given that you come to London so regularly its great to know that there is always more to discover on each trip.

Forgotten London
Cammacks31
, Feb 2022
Great way to get to see the bits of London you would never know about I believe the title ‘hidden secrets’ is a bit misleading and was expecting more ‘little gems’ like hidden gardens however, an interesting informative walk
icon Response from Host , Feb 2022
Thanks for your review. As the Secret London tour is in the very heart of central London, it isn't an area with many gardens, but I'm glad you found all the secret history and forgotten bits of London interesting. For more 'hidden gems' I'd suggest joining our Hidden London walk, which features the beautiful courtyards of Temple as well as many hidden alleyways and little know open spaces.

Ruined birthday treat
Keren_T
, Nov 2021
Booked in October for my dauughter's birthday present. Every single e-mailed notification, including our ticket showed a 2pm start time!! Arrived at the correct starting point 15 mins early and waited and waited. No one else arrived so called the Fun London Tours number to be given a recorded number with the guide's moble no: saying he was out on a tour! Once able to contact him he said the tour in fact started at 1:30 and that he had been telling Viator for 2 weeks that the start time had changed! This ruined our day. I would like our money back please. Second time trying to submit as received this message the first time! ''It seems that your device or browser is interfering with review submission.

Dear Keren I am extremely sorry about this mix up and send you my deepest apologies for your daughter's birthday present being ruined. We are a small walking tour company and try our utmost to uphold customer expectations and provide a great service, so I am particularly sorry for this to happen to you. I believe I personally spoke to you on the phone on Saturday. Our guide Jess had waited with the rest of the group for you to arrive until 1.35pm as on our booking system your booking appeared to be at 1.30pm, and we didn't have a tour scheduled for 2pm. I was personally leading a private Last Christmas movie location tour, otherwise I would have come to take the tour for you myself. I am currently going through all the bookings one by one to ensure that this will never happen again. As per my email, please contact Viator directly and they will provide you with a refund, and if you have any problems don't hesitate to contact me again. As mentioned in my email to you I am of course more than happy to provide you with a credit note for a tour in the future should you wish, which hopefully could go a little way towards making up for this mistake and your disappointment.
