First of all— These free tours are Amazing!! Thank God for companies like this. Im a solo female traveler on a strict budget and its so important to be around people in safe and affordable environments. So yes it’s free but if you can do not be greedy with your tips. I thank everyone who is a heavy tipper so that people like me can have this opportunity! When I am able to, I will return the favor for future travelers!

Our tour with Mark was so interesting and he was so great at storytelling. At the end of the tour some of the group dropped into a pub that he recommended and he even surprised us with extra tour of the pubs dark history that only he and the bartenders would have known of (not saying anything more of this secret space). Moral of the story is “Always take your last pint”- a story you will hear on this tour!

What does 'Free Pay What You Can' mean?

Wonders of London works on a pay what you feel basis, we understand that many of you have travelled various distances to get here, some of you might be locals, some of you might be on holiday here and we know that it can be difficult to enjoy all of London’s best attractions without spending a fair penny. We want our tours to be accessible to anyone and everyone so we don’t charge a ticket price but just bear in mind that are guides are working guides so we ask that at the end of the tour just have a think about what the tour was worth to you and pay however much or small you feel.
