"I have done several tours on my visits to London and recommend to everyone to try it out! Just the perfect combination of sightseeing and exercise and with inspiring themes to choose from! The Shoreditch Street Art tour was a great introduction to artists and a world and community that I knew little about. I can really recommend!"

"This was my second tour with Secret London Runs. The most enjoyable 10k I've ever ran and learned a lot about the history of gin in London. Matt was an incredible guide, able to encourage and educate our group in a truly fun way. This is a staple for every trip that brings me to London. Highly recommend!"

"What a fantastic way to learn a bit of historical detail in situ! Guide was informative and very friendly. We ran at the pace of the slowest runner. It was a great way to be able to chat with new people between places of interest."
