Highly informative, exceptionally interesting and appreciably entertaining as usual. Once you attend one of Jeremy's unique tours you are instantly hooked and start looking forward for what will unfold at the upcoming stop! Thanks to this tour I visited picturesque locations where I would have otherwise never ventured to. Looking forward for any upcoming tours as I am sure that I won't be disappointed.

I recommend House of Tours for anyone who loves history and want to learn interesting facts which are not always easy to find.

The tour guide himself also made the tour more interactive and fun than the usual tours.
Exciting and impressive
