When we arrived George (who was fantastic) informed us that the Fortnum and Mason tasting was no longer available, and to be... More

Had a wonderful time on Sunday afternoon on the Downton Abbey tour. Highclere Castle was a spectacle to behold and Mark the tour guide gave lots of interesting information about the history of the castle as well as the show. Would definitely recommend for fans of history or Downton Abbey.

Yesterday my friend and I had the pleasure of going on the chocolate walking tour in the sunshine of London. It lasted 2 hours and included visits to 6 different places including chocolatiers, coffee shops and Fortnum and Masons. We were given at least 1 chocolate sample at each shop and were sometimes allowed to choose a second - all... More

This walking tour with cupcake and macaroon sampling was great fun. Our guide John was friendly, funny and knew his stuff. I saw places in London I didn't know existed and found out some interesting facts, but of course the cakes were the stars and they were exquisite. The samples were mostly small enough that you weren't defeated by the... More

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
