Having a driver to show you around London was terrific. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and it's inhabitants. All four of us enjoyed it tremendously and it saved our tired feet.

My wife, 12 year old grandson and I spent a wonder and fruitful 5 hours with Geoff and for giving an overview of what can be a most intimidatingly big city. The things we saw and heard from Geoff will stay with us and our grandson especially his whole life. A Great day

We had a terrific day touring Oxford, Blenheim Palace and the Cotswolds with our guide Richard. He was incredible knowledgeable about both the sites we were seeing and London in general. He was accommodating to our groups needs (we travelled with both preteen children and grandparents). It was a great time had by all.

I highly recommend British Tours. We had a wonderful excursion to Cotswolds and Oxford as part of a college travel seminar. There were 12 of us all together. It was enjoyable in all the ways I had hoped for, and exceeded expectations in a few ways, too. The first pleasant surprise was that British Tours arranged for us to have... More

Our day was a magnificent topper to a great trip to London. We've taken a car and driver/guide now in Dublin, Rome and London - and this was by far the most enjoyable of all three. Our driver Lovett was extremely knowledgeable and fun. I'd say it was as though a relative had agreed to show us some of the... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
