--"Had a great time on the City of London walk. Visited a few places we didn't know existed and had a very nice lunch at one of the recommended pubs - so nice we took a bit too long and our time wasn't that good! Will definitely try another walk."
--"We had a great time, seeing some interesting hidden gems and generally 'observing' more than you normally do! Never knew there was a Roman Amphitheatre in London!"
--"Really fun day out discovering hidden gems of the city of London. Great clues, lots of fun trying to figure them out. 100% would recommend for anyone who wants to see the lesser known side of London."
