Our tour guide was Vincent who turned out to be very knowledgeable and very entertaining. The weather wasn’t great and very windy, so be prepared if you go on his tour as it was very windy walking along the Thames path. Also take a brolly just in case it rains. The tour lasted about 2 hrs having started by the Cutty Sark and finishing up at the top of Greenwich Park. I will certainly be looking into other tours organised by Wonders of London.
The guide – Vincent was very good, knows a lot about the area, history and well known the topic. He passed the information in very easy way to understand and get interested in.
I am french and I have sometimes some difficulties to understand people when they speak in english but our guide (Vincent) was amazing ! He explained us everything, he was funny so the tour wasn’t boring ! I loved it and I highly recommend to do it !!
