Our tour guide was Ross and we took the 12pm tour on a Sunday. There were 14 of us in all. Let me start by saying that Ross was a fantastic tour guide. He was funny and knowledgeable and made this trip really fun for all. I was excited as I had read many reviews about this tour and how... More

Giving us interesting tidbits on the areas we were walking to and info on the places we visited. The cupcakes and macaroons were yummy as well! Would definitely recommend this tour and especially with George as... More

Alan was our guide for the evening. A very knowledgeable young man, although he was happy to learn from us too (apparantly it's hanged not hung!). Learnt some interesting stories whilst on a lovely leisurely walk along the Southbank, encouraging us to participate in either passing on our own knowledge of the stories or trying to work it out for...

Despite not being in slightest bit scary, "The London Ghost Walk with Thames Boat Ride" was a thoroughly lovely evening. Our tour guide Rob was an excellent story teller, despite the noise of the traffic and hustle and bustle of central London and led us at a decent, yet leisurely pace. Not really scary, the tour covers ghost stories that... More

Tom was our guide for the ghost tour and did a great job of showing us around and is a natural story teller. We'd recommend it to anyone who wants something different. One improvement would be to make people aware that they'll need a tube ticket before arriving...it wasn't a problem for us but could catch you out if you're... More

We met George yesterday outside M&S and headed off with three others for a lovely day walking around London. We were on streets and routes we didn't know.....eating lots of lovely cakes and macaroons.... George was fab and told us about the areas we were in, shops, and general cake history! It was a great couple of hours, lots and... More

We went on the Great British Ghost Tour and thought it was a good way to spend the evening. Our Australian guide was waiting for us at the appointed meeting place, greeted us in a friendly manner and headed off promptly for a wander around nearby sites said to be haunted, telling us some spooky stories on the way. We... More

Excellent tour with tour guide Lisa. Very informative with good selection of chocolates to taste. Also ice cream tasting which was very welcome on a very hot Saturday afternoon. We were not pressured into buying anything but were offered a 10% discount off of any purchases.

This tour was enjoyable and our guide was extremely nice. This is essentially a tour of chocolate shops and although we were not made to feel obliged to buy, I assume this is what the shops were expecting. We did not learn about chocolate being made or see anything of the process and I felt we were a bit 'in... More

John our Scottish tour guide was really helpful, friendly and informative. As well as 7 tastings of Cupcakes and Macarons we also walked parts of London we had not seen before and learnt something of the history of the places we visited. John had so much historical information about the streets we walked as well as the history of the... More
