Despite having been sheltered, I know that one day, my dreams will come true. I still hold the belief that traveling the world opens your mind—to cultures, skills, ideas, religions.

When I was introduced to Free Tours of London, it reaffirmed my belief that experiencing the world first hand is possible, even with a tight budget. Free Tours of London allows tourists to pay as they see fit, based on their experience.
Visitors and current residents have the chance to see, feel, and hear the colorful (and sometimes dark) history of London. There are currently three tours available, all of which provide tourists with a thought-provoking experience.
Free Tours of London offer a walking tour that leads to the locations of the Whitechapel Murders. Tourists have the opportunity to learn more about Jack The Ripper, possible suspects, and victims, as they trudge along, visiting areas where victims were last seen and the one area that a clue was found.
As a lover of mysteries, I've always been intrigued with the Jack The Ripper story. Perhaps this is why this tour is the one that really stood out to me.
On the Royal Tour, visitors will relive British history, with a focus on Winston Churchill, Guy Fawkes, and Henry VII. Three royal locations are visited, including Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Trafalgar Square. On this tour, you will likely learn of things you never knew, including plots to destroy parliament, Churchill's hidden bunker, clubs for the rich and famous, and so much more.
For those interested in going far back, the Old City Tour is for you. Find out where the Romans first settled, visit a true medieval castle, learn about the Knights Templar and Free Masons, visit one of the oldest pubs in London, and go back through 2,000 years of rich London history.
As mentioned early, Free Tours of London allows visitors, no matter their budget, to experience London first-hand while learning more about its rich history. Tours are run on a "Pay What It's Worth" basis, meaning that if you didn't enjoy the tour, you needn't pay a dime. However, if you enjoyed it, then feel free to let your payment reflect that.
