Booked this for my best friend for a birthday treat who loves baking. Plus points - The tour guide was very informative. The tasting treats were delicious! Slightly dissapointed that all the places listed to be part of the tour was not available. Also dissapointed that we were left outside some of the stores whilst the tour guide obtained the... More

Thanks to John our Tour guide this was a great experience lots of interesting local knowledge and yummy cakes and Macarons. Worth bringing a bag so you don't have to eat them all at once. I enjoyed them when I got home. Great value as I used 241 voucher on the TRAIN. Will be taking my friends and family back... More

A really informative tour! I learned lots of things about JK Rowling and her time writing the books. I would definitely recommend this to any Potterhead out there!

The guide was a little over the top in her presenting style, but she clearly knew her stuff. I would say that some of the links are a little tenuous at (Diagon Alley, Tom Riddle's grave etc), but otherwise it was a fun & interesting walk.

Great tasting of 1st macaron from... More

I booked this for my cupcake-loving finacee's birthday. We visited half-a-dozen of the top bakeries and macron shops in the West End. VERY generous, full-sized cupcakes and macarons at each stop and a good variety of tastes and designs. We had a great guide - funny, knowledgeable - and he took us on a great little tour of the back... More

Really great time spent in London, the cakes and macarons brought a nice twist to this London tour. I booked the tour via Amazon Local, I was looking for something that could appeal to both teenage kids-who hate historic trips and were dreading having to come along a London tour- and visiting foreign guests (including an elderly). It was a... More
