I have never tipped on a London Walks.

They are very good, by the way.

When I went on one last May I was able to use their contactless terminal with ApplePay and then the guide was off quickly after the walk so no way to have tipped even if I'd wanted to.

I was on one in December and did not tip.
I would have, but at the end , most of the group decided to go into an ancient tiny noisy pub.
It was so packed I couldn’t even see the guide, let alone fight the crowd to get near to him.
I hadn’t wanted to go into the pub, so after trying to look over and through all the bodies, I left on my own.

London Walks are great, as are Paris Walks.
