活動內容

Experience the secret stories of the city

Relaunched for Summer 2020! If your preferred date is not listed, contact me and we will try to arrange it. Note: This tour is entirely outdoors and we will be able to keep 2 metres away from each other at all times.

If you like humorous history, quirky facts, and solving mysteries, this excursion in the heart of London is for you! If the date/time you prefer is not listed, message me and I'll do my best to arrange it.

We will walk around some of London's most famous areas and familiar landmarks. Everything is completely factual—but it's not the stuff you learned at school. We’re going to discuss religion, drinking, and even have a bit of 1800s brothel banter. It's about experiencing the hidden sides of London that were right in front of your eyes but you never saw.

We will discover the secret behind the flowing of the River Thames, the origins of Covent Garden, and try to solve the mystery of the headless statues. I'll also provide recommendations for anything you need in London.
Highlights:
- How the Americans stole coffee from the British!
- The only street in London where we drive backwards
- London's most notorious brothel, and the extinct police force that shut it down;
- London's last Victorian gas lamp.

Whether it is your first time in London, or you’re a local who's curious about the city's secrets, this is a great intro to London's alternative history!

Having lived in London all my life, I have always been fascinated with what lies beneath the city’s surface. I have worked as a professional tour guide, a journalist, a youth worker, and an experiential educator. I have travelled extensively to over 50 countries worldwide, and I understand the importance of experiencing a city with a local guide. I get genuine enjoyment from showing people around London in an immersive and entertaining way. I also pride myself on giving recommendations to visitors to ensure their time in the city is well spent.

體驗地點

The whole tour takes place outdoors. We begin opposite Covent Garden Tube Station. We will go down to Covent Garden itself, wander around the quaint backstreets towards the Strand, head through the spectacular Somerset House courtyard on the River Thames and then onto Waterloo Bridge for a spectacular view. We then take a winding route up to Trafalgar Square, where we will end.

Joey is very personable, has a good sense of humor, and is proud of the knowledge he as acquired in the years he’s been doing these tours. It’s nice being part of s smaller tour (10 max), and he really enjoys questions from and interactions with the group members. You get to see some of the big things in London, and some of the smaller ones nestled behind them.

Joey's tour of London was funny and educative. He clearly loves the city and knows its underbelly and the stories which you cannot read about - only a local would know! Highly recommend this tour to see the other side of London

Joey was brimming with fun facts of the history of London. His passion for history, teaching and London was evident! We covered a lot of territory but Joey gave plenty of opportunities to stop and hear more fascinating history. Who knew the real reason Orange Girls got their name? Highly recommended for everyone!

If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Joey is incredible and really brings to life a side of London you won’t get from the huge group tours. Joey is very knowledgeable and engaging. He continuously checked in with the group to make sure we were doing alright. Even after the tour ended he accompanied a few of us to a pub to enjoy the rest of the football match. Highly recommend Joey and this tour to everyone!
