"Loved the tour. Even though I've lived in London for 35 years, Marc showed and told us new, fascinating vignettes of days present and gone by. A well planned, well delivered tour by a knowledgeable guide who, in a personal twist, showed us how his family's history is intertwined with the East End. Recommend"

"A Stimulating Afternoon Out: Marc's tour of London's Square Mile was a real treat. We saw many interesting and beautiful sites, and learned so much about London's history - including Wren churches, the Great Fire, the Blitz - and some impressive modern buildings too. Marc was friendly, entertaining, knowledgeable and engaging throughout, as well as careful with the safety of his guests in the London crowds and traffic. We would heartily recommend Marc and have already booked a second tour with him"

"Fascinating afternoon with Marc as our tour guide. We learnt a lot about the City from Roman times to the present day, and also much about the area near Spitalfields where various immigrant communities have settled over the centuries"

"All I can say is “wow”, Marc brought to life an area of London that I thought I knew. His enthusiasm and depth of knowledge is incredible. A highly recommended tour!!!"
