    My wife and I booked a 2.5 hour private “History of London Walking Tour” with Becky from Babylon Tours and it was incredible! We booked it last minute the evening before, but Arnaud was very gracious when I called in and was able to get us confirmed within a matter of minutes. He also texted me multiple times before and after to make sure everything went smoothly and we had a great experience. Becky was awesome; she definitely put her history degree to work and was just full of awesome facts about London. She was very friendly, kept a great pace, and I loved how she married a ton of historical information with some fun tidbits I would have never expected, like where the term “stiff drink” comes from. The time just flew by. This was my first private walking tour ever, but I will definitely do more in the future and would highly recommend Babylon Tours to anyone visiting London and wanting a great introductory walking tour of the city that is a lot more intimate and personalized!
