⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Could not recommend one of Katie’s tours highly enough! As Londoners, we were taken aback by the incredible history and stories behind streets and places that we’ve walked past hundreds of times.
Katie is not only extremely knowledgeable, but she’s also a fantastic storyteller and brought the information to life in the most magical way.” –
