"The River Thames Walk from Blackfriars station to the Tower of London was a very pleasant and informative walk along the river. The leader, Susan, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and gauged the walk well for the group. There was a good amount of history in a relatively short walk. She was also happy to answer questions and listen to comments from the group. I would definitely recommend this walking tour. Sunshine in October was a bonus!" Jenny

"Thames History walk on a perfect sunny day. Part of a well-being event for a small charity. My colleagues loved being on the "other side of the Thames" having never really walked on that side. We loved the interesting facts about the tour. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable."
