Pew Foundation of America – Finding a qualified guide from across the pond for a full day’s tour of the River Thames and Greenwich was a daunting task, but we knew had found the perfect guide when Dr. Barry Walsh was recommended to us. After a conversation about our visit, Barry went above and beyond, researching our destinations and tailoring his background in medicine and his immense knowledge of the history of London to suit our group’s interests and ultimately offered us an exceptional, catered experience. All guests were impressed with not only his breadth of knowledge but his conversational style that welcomed questions. Even crew members of our boat who had heard a hundred guided tours down the Thames before were impressed with his interesting and unique anecdotes, bringing both the history and architecture of London to life. In Greenwich, Barry could speak about every building, boat and piece of artwork to cross our paths, never missing an opportunity to enrich our visit. Overall, we could not recommend a better guide for your visit to London!
Barry is our “Renaissance Man”. He’s a Consultant Public Health Physician, an Art Historian and professionally qualified Blue Badge Guide.David Tucker at London Walks
