Some Endorsements” Add yours The very first walk I took with Isobel toured the outlines of the London Wall. Witty, knowledgeable, fond of a good puns and bad jokes, but devoted to her subject matter, Isobel the Tour Guide left me ready to follow her to any corner of London she cared to guide. Isobel takes me to parts of London I’ve only read about to hear of stories people I’ve rarely heard of – and brings them to life. In skillfully weaving the fading evidence of London Past into the constantly evolving London Present, Isobel gives me much to savor (and read up on) long after the guiding is over.

Every excursion with her is worthwhile! LikeLike Reply We thoroughly enjoyed Isobel’s London Wall walk. She was extremely engaging as well as clearly so knowledgeable about what she was talking about it seemed as if she were merely scratching the surface of her vast repertoire of facts. I was also particularly impressed at how she regularly read my mind, for example when we paused at a street corner and I wondered to myself why one street was called what it was called, she explained without my asking! Likewise, just as I was wondering who Sir John Cass was, out came her explanation! We thoroughly enjoyed Isobel’s company throughout the afternoon. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Mike. Don’t worry, your email address will not appear on the site, LikeLike Reply We keep an eye open for Walks with Isobel – always a great two hours. Isobel takes what she does seriously but herself more lightly. Walk hangs together well, lots of info and special tidbits. Keep up the great work LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Jane. I’m glad you enjoy these walks. LikeLike Reply We were fortunate enough to enjoy the company and wisdom of Isobel on two London Walks in April. First was the tour of the Bermondsey area, ending near the Shard and the Borough Market. This is a less known part of London, and we previously only knew it from the Bermondsey Antique Market, which had nothing to do with the tour. We also toured the British Museum with Isobel. The museum would have been a daunting experience without Isobel’s guidance. Her enthusiasm for and knowledge of the exhibits is wonderful. We loved Isobel’s dry humor and her knowledge and passion for what she does. Well done!! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hello, I saw Isobel’s Elephant and Castle tour. While it was designed for 1.5hrs, she was generous with her time and it took over 2 hours. We did not want to leave. This is an important tour with the regeneration of the Elephant. She is highly knowledgeable and it was easy to follow. I love how Isobel is easy to talk to and we felt at ease in asking her questions. Thanks again for running a spectacular tourl.

It was great to visit Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. The river cruise down the Thames was also great!! I really appreciated Isobel’s knowledge and passion for the history of these historical sites including London in general. Isobel is very kind, engaging and we enjoyed our day!

As my wife is French, it’s sometimes hard for her to follow guided tours in English, but yours was a pleasure for her to listen to, clear, informative and very rich in detail. We live in Paris, but look forward to joining one of your tours when we come back to London next. Regards, Steven & Veronique LikeLiked by 1 person Reply We are involved in a major construction project in the Elephant & Castle and to celebrate National Walking Month of May 2018, and to provide a Wellbeing event for the team and to connect us with the neighbourhood and community of which we are temporarily a part, we asked Isobel to invent a bespoke walk for us [over two separate evenings]. This proved very successful and interesting and it was great to have cause to stop and look and listen whilst London went about its business. We would happily use Isobel’s services again. Thanks Isobel. from Bill. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank-you Bill! LikeLike Reply Please comment here Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
