Had a really fun couple of hours this afternoon with my daughter on this tour led by George. Fun facts from George and delicious cupcakes and macarons (especially from Yauatcha!) The fact that Pride was going on as well only added to the atmosphere :)

I paid in full for a tour to Highclere Castle and called multiple times the week before my trip to confirm the pickup. No one returned my emails or calls. Then when my hotel placed the call the day before, "Phillip" the manager informed me that they did not have a driver that day and would not be appearing for... More

George was delightful and informative and made sure there was a comfort stop at Yauatcha half way through. we explored areas in London I didn't know (Soho) and returned... More

Despite the poor weather at the start of the tour, we had a great time. Our guide, John, was funny and entertaining and we learnt lots of interesting facts about London, as well as tasting lots of delicious cakes and macaroons. The one thing that could improve the tour would be a stop halfway for a cuppa (or glass of... More

I had a great day despite the poor weather at the beginning of the tour. Our guide, John, was highly knowledgeable and very funny and entertaining. He kept us engaged throughout and made jokes from ongoing events and members of the group. We got to hear some historical facts and really "see" some parts of London that I've usually just... More

I attended a street art tour on 16th May. Rob and John were exceptional, funny and informative. I was really impressed with their extensive knowledge of street art. Will definitely attend more tours with this company again.

Well informed tour without the frivolities. The tour guide John really knew his stuff, made everyone feel welcome and involved. Only thing, the tour could have been longer but there's only so many victims. So all in all a good experience.
