Five of us attended the Cupcake & macaron tour of London on 28 Feb and it was deliciously interesting... John and Ross were a fantastic duo and made the tour very relaxed, and provided great history knowledge of the areas we passed whilst we devoured cupcakes, macarons and a truffle. Totally worth it.

We had a lovely couple of hours with our tour guide John from Edinburgh. The sun was shining, a great result. We ate delicious cakes and macaroons and listened to John's interesting facts and stories of places we passed as we walked the streets of London. Thanks for introducing us to Cecil Court and its fantastic book stores and Yauatcha,... More

Very disappointing, we had planned our whole trip to Oxford because of this tour including booking a hotel only to be sent an email the day before cancelling the tour, no courteous call, I will not be re-arranging this tour and I doubt ill will ever use your company again, waste of my time and money!!!

We are very sorry that you had a poor experience with Great British Tours. This by no means represents the standard of service we set ourselves. Our apologies to you, and we ask if you would be so kind as to email direct to ferry@besttours.com with your original booking details so that we can investigate the issue. More

Brilliant. Great fun for Whovians of all ages. You don't need to be a nerd or geek to enjoy this - just be a fan of Doctor Who. You can dress up in your favourite Doctor Who t-shirt - but you don't have to. I met one young lady wearing a fabulous Capt. Jack greatcoat! The leaders, Alan & Tom,... More

We did this tour via a Groupon offer. It was the second tour we've done with the company, the previous one being the Chocolate tour. We met at Shoreditch station as advised and made sure we were there in plenty of time. The group was quite large and we had two guides to lead us round. Even though there was... More

Really enjoyed it, Tom the Australian was our guide, he made the night, fun he had a good way of telling the stories, glad we went in the months when it's dark early as it sets the atmosphere. Would try another one of their tours, very professional.

Went on the Doctor Who tour yesterday and really enjoyed it. As I only started watching in 2008 I was glad that the tour is mostly about the new series from 2005 onwards. It was fun to learn how well known London Landmarks featured in the series, St Thomas's hospital taken to the moon, a giant scorpion running amok in... More
