What people have said about our River Thames Walk:

"This was a wonderful walk. Susan is incredibly knowledgeable and a great communicator. We were introduced to a number of sites that we will revisit. I will look out for her other walks." Una

“This was a lovely Walk along the north side of the Thames that is probably not visited as much as the south side. There were some nice hidden gems that was explored with our guide Susan. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed this walk immensely.” Sylvester

“Susan was our River Thames Walk North Side at Blackfriars. She came across as very caring and courteous. We learned the history of the bridges and City of London. Along the way she pointed out many hidden gems that we had never paid much notice to. A very knowledgeable and likeable guide. We would definitely like to go on more walks with her as our guide.” Khim
