Rachel from Sandeman's is an awesome tourguide (and actress). She was the first tourguide from walking tours (i've done a lot in different cities) where i would say i kept the majority of stories/facts she told us in mind. She would explain things using people attending the tour in really funny ways making everyone laugh. She knew how to keep... More

I took a free walking tour with Rachel and that was absolutely amazing! She is a great storyteller - never felt like at one of a history lectures - it was so captivating, I didn't know where the time went! So I took another tour with her - the Jack Ripper one. It was a heavy one, the subject isn't... More

I have been on a few walking tours in different cities and this one has been my favourite by far! Not only is Rachel absolutely hilarious, but she really makes the history of London come alive. I was really captivated by her and was quite sad when the tour ended. I would really recommend this walking tour and of you... More

We found a flyer at our hotel for a walking tour of London and glad to have taken it up. We were told just enough interesting facts and stories without being bombarded with information. Angus had a great sense of humour, was very easy to talk to and made for a very pleasant few hours in London.

A really interesting and insightful tour. Billy was our guide and couldn't have been more accommodating or genuinely enthusiastic and passionate about what he did. Storytelling is his forte and the tour was nothing but memorable. Thank you. I have and will continue to recommend the tour to all I can. Best of luck to Billy and the team, I... More

This was my first walking tour ever and I could not have been more pleased! Not only was Rachel extremely entertaining but her tour was laced with interesting historical fact and bits of little known humor. The tour has intermittent breaks to break up the monotony of the walk. Also, Rachel manages to incorporate the group in her funny yet... More

We had a great and fun tour with Charlotte. Ours was a small group including families with young kids but I think she gave us a great overview of the city with funny snippets. She also brought along a very interesting book and let us have a peek which gave the tour more flavor. Would recommend Charlotte!

Tour was about 3 hours, and super informative and fun. Much more than I expected out of a free tour! Yeh, the guide did such a good job, several of us in the group ended up taking a second tour with him that night around different parts of the city.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
