Stephen did a fantastic job telling us all about Dickens and the world he lived in, plus lots of other interesting facts about London along the way. I highly recommend!

I booked this tour for my daughter, a huge Dickens fan. What a delight it was! Our guide was Stephen and he was great. Very knowledgeable and funny. He took us places few tourists will see. Down back alleyways, entering into a hidden garden. A hidden cemetery. We lucked out and had a private tour - just my daughter and me and Stephen and Richard who was shadowing him. They both took time to take our pictures and slowed down for me numerous times. While the tour seems long, at three hours, it actually went by pretty quick. The tour ends at the Charles Dickens House, which was perfect. You really don't want to miss this tour. One of the highlights of our London visit.
