"Very well researched tour by a fun and informative guide. Recommended. Thanks Hazel!" Graham, Guildford

"Great tour learning about Farringdons bloody past. Hazel was incredibly knowledgeable and about to answer all additional questions." Faye B

"So much history in a few blocks. Best London Walks. " Ilona A

"Informative and immersive. Loved the way Hazel got everyone engaged into the stories." Karina R

"Hazel as always never fails to entertain on an interesting and informative walk around Smithfield and down alleyways you would never normally even notice." Lynda D

"Had a really good time. The walk was a good length, and even as a local I learned lots of stuff. There was one kid there, which wasn't a problem, but I felt that the content was a bit filtered for the young audience member. Everyone else was 18+ and I was expecting a slightly more risky gory talk." Samson D
