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.
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 !!
