IN-PERSON TOUR REVIEWS

I booked this walk for a group attending a conference in London in November. Everyone enjoyed the walk, even those of us who work in London. Many of us went to places we had never been to before and Jackie was great in placing the areas in historical context. She is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I highly recommend this walk. (December 2021)

We had a wonderful street art tour with Jackie yesterday in spite of challenging weather conditions. Jackie showed us all the hidden corners of Shoreditch area painted beautifully, quirkily by different street artists. it was very interesting to learn the background of the artists, story of the wall arts. There were 4 teenagers with us. Jackie successfully managed to have their attention. Thank you Jackie! we will definitely suggests your tours to our friends. (March 2022)

Jackie’s Street Art walk was notable not only for the hidden gems which she introduced us to, but also the background detail and information with which she textured her talk. She is great with children, encouraging their input and she also delivers her talk in a clear voice easy for the hard of hearing (me!). Jackie’s walk was an excellent use of valuable tourist time, yet good for locals (“I didn’t know that”) also. (November 2021)

I went on this tour on May 24th. It was one of the best tours I’ve attended. Really enjoyed the roof top garden views of the City of London. Jackie made the small group feel comfortable. I highly recommend this walk. (May 2022)

On behalf of our family I want to sincerely thank you for making our recent trip to London such a special time. You were the perfect tour guide. We all loved seeing London and the special care you took with us was greatly appreciated.. We were fortunate to have two other exceptional tour guides when we got to Paris but our family voted you our trip's BEST tour guide. Thank you for making our trip an unforgettable experience.

The best London walk I've been on in ages !

VIRTUAL TOUR REVIEWS

“Thank you once again for the Riverside Adventures tour; It was brilliant and colleagues and students raved over it.”
Marleen Vanderheiden – Assistant Principal, Centre for Living Languages (CLT), University of Leuven, Belgium

“Legal London virtual tour highly recommended! The worries of Covid 19 and the looming likelihood of another national lockdown were forgotten briefly yesterday as I spent a fascinating hour exploring Legal London on the virtual tour led by Jackie Clare. Wow! What a treat! Jackie used superb visuals, was very clear in her explanations and showed us the route as we progressed through this huge, mysterious and largely hidden but expansive corner of London. The history of the Inns of Court, the role of the Knights Templar, the growth of the legal system, training of barristers (and we got to hear about how women were eventually, albeit very reluctantly, admitted), centuries old traditions still observed today and some of the famous personalities who have been part of this area since it’s inception, were all included. Just the right mix of fact and anecdote. Thankyou very much Jackie, it was great exactly how I hoped it would be. Looking forward to the next!”<br />

“It is a sad reflection on modern times that I tend to discount any “5 star / over-glowing” reviews, however, in the hope that there are others less-jaundiced than myself, I’m submitting my own genuine “outstanding” review.

I have lived in SE London for most of my life, and have walked the Thames path from Greenwich to London Bridge many times. I was therefore doubtful that Jackie Clare’s on-line talk on “Riverside Rotherhithe” would add any new knowledge. I’m delighted to admit that I was totally mistaken, and the hour long talk was truly outstanding, both informative and entertaining. Jackie covered a vast amount of current and historical information on Rotherhithe, and was able to provide instant answers to any questions that were raised. The talk included an excellent mix of media – with maps, photo’s and videos in addition to the live commentary, and was perfectly paced, giving time to absorb new information without the need for repetition.
