An exceptional tour. My wife and I booked a walking tour of Richmond and we couldn't have had a better experience. We were taken to parts we would probably have never discovered on our own. We can't express how much we enjoyed this tour.

All along the walk, Paul shared with us his passion about history and Richmond. He was very keen on making the tour attractive to everyone in the group (a family living in the area and other French and British Londoners). He is very calm, has a good sense of humour and very generous with his time.

I did the longer cycling tour with Discovery Richmond and I have to say it exceeded my expectations hugely. I live fairly locally and thought I knew quite a bit about the history and most picturesque spots but this tour really opened my eyes.
Excellent Richmond guided walk. The perfect way to experience historic and present-day Richmond. You get a much deeper appreciation having someone with such a depth of knowledge sharing their stories. Highly recommend!

Had a one on one tour of Richmond/Twickenham with Paul and can't say enough about the information he had at his fingertips to make this day so interesting and informative. The walk along the Thames and the crossing by the little ferry to Twickenham were delightful. He brought out all the area had to offer and was so informed about its relationship to America (my home). Highly recommended.

Knowledgeable & entertaining guide + gorgeous scenery = a must do tour. Paul's tour around Richmond gave us new eyes to see what had been right under our noses while living here the past year. Interesting historical facts interspersed with colorful local lore while walking through our beautiful town. Great value for your money, we would highly recommend this tour to visitors and natives alike.
Charming and captivating. I recently went on a private tour with Paul and it was one of the most fascinating I have ever been on. Living in London for the past 3 years I thought I had seen it all but Paul opened my eyes to a part of London's history that is often overlooked. It's a far more authentic and unique perspective of London!
A pleasant day trip from London. A wonderful experience if you've been to London a few times and want to capture a completely different landscape. Add Paul as your guide and you will be delighted.

Our walk around Twickenham was full of surprises. Paul picks out the gems you have probably missed so far, even if you know the area. he is full of fascinating stories, happy to paint the context and bring history to life and his memory for detail is incredible. Who would have thought that Twickenham is not only stunning but, as Paul picked out for the French folks on the tour, full of historical links to France?
We went on a half-day tour with a most wonderful guide from Richmond to Kingston including a boat trip. We stopped to buy an ice cream before we travelled up the Thames. A very enjoyable day.
