Peter is a superstar. I take walking tours in every city I visit. Peter is the finest guide I’ve encountered, hands down: thoughtful, engaging, fun, and ready for anything.
Such an interesting and well-informed tour and guide (and great weather to boot)! Peter was extremely nice, super smart, and well-spoken with a wealth of knowledge about City of London history, politics, and economics. Context Tours take you one step deeper into the place and topic, which is perfect for my nerdy family who loves to walk, but maybe less so for those looking for a very broad/general tour of London, those less comfortable walking for three hours, or those with very young kids.
Peter was superb and quite accommodating and impressive with the breadth and depth of his knowledge.
