Mary, Fiona, Maxine & Noel in the London Walks office write… On Mondays & Fridays we'll be sharing reviews of our London Walks written by London Walkers. Firstly, THANKS to all who have written to us down through the years, your kind words are greatly appreciated! Our guides don't solicit these reviews on our tours – we believe that this would be a waste of your time. That's what makes these reviews all the more special – they have been sent to us by genuine London Walkers who have given up their valuable time to drop us a line or two, or leave a comment on travel message boards & websites. Thanks everyone.
Mary writes… This one came in via email for our Westminster Abbey Tour from London Walker Lyn Walton…
Just wanted to say how fantastic the walking tour around Westminster Abbey was. Two friends of mine from USA had chosen this tour and I decided to come down to London to join them.
I used to live in Knightsbridge for many, many years but had never been into Westminster Abbey.
It was Brian who led the group I was in. I have to congratulate him on a wonderful tour so full of information. My two friends were very impressed too.
I had never realised just what an interesting place Westminster Abbey is - so thank you London Walks and thank you Brian.
I will have no hesitation in recommending yourselves to other overseas visitors, and UK visitors too, in the future. And what value for our money too!!!!!
Mary (& Brian!) say… Thanks Lyn!
Brian, a professionally qualified Blue Badge Guide, won the London Tourist Board's Guide of the Year Award in 1994. His career has embraced the law, surveying, catering, dispatch riding and art - and the stage may be beckoning.
