Join me, Stephen Burstin, for a fascinating experience that delights both Jewish and non-Jewish visitors to London as well as locals. Click on Website (in blue above here) and see the highlights of my various tours, each one informative and entertaining for all ages from my tours in the Old Jewish Quarter of London's East End which reveal the incredible story of the Jewish community to my exciting tours featuring London's famous landmarks (with Jewish connections too) such as Buckingham Palace, Tower of London, Houses of Parliament etc. There's also fabulous Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle. As a tour guide for 25 years, I delight in sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for London, especially its Jewish heritage.

This tour of the Jewish quarter was moving and done with great passion and intelligence. Wonderful opportunity for pictures reflecting the old in 2018. It was a gentle 2 1/2 walk that I would have gladly extended.

I really appreciated the guide's vast knowledge of so many specific areas and people from London's Jewish history. I highly recommend the trip to anyone interested in discovering how Jewish Londoners lived from the Middle ages until after WWII.

A fantastic tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide who was full of personality! Our tour lasted about 2 1/2 hours but wasn't too much walking at all, as it was contained within a reasonable area. Loved it!

Stephen was a good guide, with a loud voice so that we could all hear his stories, explanations and bad jokes! He showed us some historical photos of the places we were visiting/the characters we were talking about. A very interesting walk.

Excellent walking tour. Stephen is very entertaining with a lot of knowledge of the Jewish East End. It was a very nice size group of 17. Would definitely book again for one of his walks.

My wife and I enjoyed walking the streets of East London with Stephen. He was able to paint a picture of Jewish life in the latter half of the 19th and early 20th century through stories and pictures.

You need to ask the tour guide. I guess the answer would be no. However, if you are in a significantly large group, the answer maybe yes.
