“I recently booked the City of London Tour with Emma for half a day. I highly recommend this tour. The City of London should be the first neighborhood to visit when traveling to London. This is where all the history, birth and development of what is known today as London took place. With the information I learned from her, it helped me to understand better the meaning of the rest of the historic places and monuments that I visited in my five days trip. There were many options in the internet to choose from to make this tour, even less costly ones. However, it was worthy having a private tour with her, for the quality, dedication and thoroughness I get back with Emma. She is very knowledgeable and provided me a lot of information and facts not found in any tour guide book. Besides her expertise and strong background in history ( she not only is one of the officials City of London tour guides, she also holds the prestigious Green Badge title), she is very friendly, has a charming personality and you feel as if you had already known her for many years. So, if this is what you are looking for, go with her. You won’t regret a penny”
“Thank you so much for the marvelous visit. Not only was it interesting but I learned a lot about English history and the city itself. Hope to have the occasion of doing the second part and the walk along the Thames.”
“Thank you!!! We enjoyed our time with you as well. We so appreciated all of your knowledge and stories about London. It really gave us more than just a “tourists” view of things.”

Emma is a wonderful guide–knowledgeable, enthusiastic, flexible, and great to work with! For the past two years she has led tours for me with a group of top American university students. They consistently rated her tours as among the highlights of our visit to London. I’m particularly impressed by Emma’s ability to put specific sights into a broader historical and cultural context and by her willingness to develop customized tours (which have often required additional research and effort on her part). Highly recommended!!!

Emma spent a whole day showing my husband and our friends the really relevant history of Old London and St. Paul’s Cathedral. The weather was miserable, but we hardly noticed as Emma’s narrative and incredible knowledge of London’s medieval history was captivating. We’ve been to London several times, but never really appreciated its history and culture. Thanks so much. Your tour is a “not to be missed” attraction in the U.K.

A superb guide with every credential you could ask for, and a exceedingly gracious lady, Emma Krais guided us for two 1/2 day tours on April 28 & 30, 2015. Day 1 was primarily the (old/original) City of London, Day 2 was Fleet Street, Inns of Court, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Her courtesy and conviviality are only exceeded by her encyclopedic knowledge of London. It’s hard to imagine anyone being better. Her knowledge of the City’s history is deep and wide. You will see with different eyes after walking through the City of London with her, Her history is first rate, but not excessive or pedagogical. There are reasons London is a world financial and cultural capital, reasons that go back a very long way. Emma weaves the past and the present in a seamless web. Similarly, St. Paul’s Cathedral came alive with her, it’s a history of England in a single building. Her numerous certifications grant Emma access to places other guides do not have. She is is one a small group of guides who have earned the privileges of the City of London. She was greeted with genuine warmth and respect throughout both days. She is also funny and fun to be with. We will be returning to London and to Emma Krais Tours. If asked, we would give her the highest recommendation. You will be so pleased you made the decision to retain her. She would be worth it if she doubled her rates.
