I just returned from a seven day trip to London. We used British Tours for a private guide every day. We had three different guides and each one was great in their own way. The business office was also very helpful and accessible when needed. Just a great experience overall.

My son and I enjoyed a first-time visit to England in May 2015 and highly recommend British Tours. We booked four tours: London Day Tour (including Churchill’s War Rooms), Duxford IWM and Cambridge, Dover and Churchill’s Chartwell, and the Bletchley Code Breakers. Jim Davies, our guide on all tours, couldn’t have been a better choice. As a Cambridge graduate and... More

The tours in the UK were guided by Lovett while the Paris trip by Richard. They are... More

Richard Rath was our tour guide and as a retired journalist was an exceptional communicator, incredibly knowledgable and very, very entertaining! Richard not only showed us the historical highlights of the city but then modified our itinerary and added time when he learned of my husbands interest in music bringing us to see the Abby Roads studio, Paul McCartney house...

It was our first time to London and we had only a couple of days left on our vacation and we wanted to do something special. We called British Tours for a trip around London and they arranged one for us the very next day. Our tour guide Harry was terrific as he escorted us around the various historical sites... More

Our Guide was very knowledgeable and very nice. The drive around London was excellent. Its a good way to see all the attractions in LONDON if you have a limited time frame. We had a 5 hour tour which gives you enough time to also get out off the car and take a few walks near the attractions. I would... More

We recently returned from a visit to the UK. We arrived in Southhampton from Guernsey and were met by our driver, Mike. He was most gracious and informative. He escorted us around Dorset for two days before depositing us in London. What a wonderful two day journey it was. We visited numerous small villages in Dorset, staying overnight in Evershot...

We had the most enjoyable experience from booking with Aline, to the very end of our journey with British Tours for our family of 10. On arrival at Heathrow, our guide Mark and driver Olivia were wonderful. Took us on a 3 hour tour of the city before we were dropped at our lodging for check-in. They covered a lot... More

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.

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.
