A very different (and exceptionally colorful) walking tour of Shoreditch and the graffiti and street art to be found on walls, streets, doors and doorways. Banksy may be the name most people know but the artists who have brightened Shoreditch with all sorts of images, some commissioned, some illegal are the new leading edge of this audacious and fabulous art...

Booked three months ago and just had it cancelled. Even though website states tour will be on come rain or shine ( nothing about minimum numbers- and I can still book for the day that was cancelled for me!) No one seems to know what they are doing or how to speak to the manager. Very poor show - unprofessional... More

I choose this tour for ME!! Downton Abbey Film Locations Private Tour and Chauffeur. I planned other activities that the rest of the family requested. So I went back and forth trying to decide if I should book this tour because of the cost and I was the only family member that watched the series. I am so Glad I... More

We very nearly missed the start of the tour after walking around the entire park expecting to find a huge statue we were supposed to meet at which turned out to be a tiny thing by a cafe near the entrance to the park (we had come into the park's entrance further over and missed it). Tom was very friendly... More

We did the ghost tour. Went with a friend who was visiting London for the first time- something a bit fun and different if you have already done the main touristy sites. Tom the guide was really great! Very knowledgable, relaxed and great sense of humour. I don't think this is worth £20 though- we booked on yplan for £10... More

My mum booked the tour for myself (16) and three friends after having seen an offer on Amazon Local. The tour was excellent. It was a birthday gift and I would highly recommend it for anyone who loves sweets. There was no lack of food! Having lived in London for almost my entire life, it was great to find new... More

Even if I live here, in 2,5 hrs between the sunset and the beginning of the night, Joe took us thru a nice walk telling us misterious story. These very passionate guy will show you another side of the old London. Highly recommended for a different night out either you are a tourist or a local.

We went on the chocolate tour, it was brilliant! Alan the tour guide was very well informed, with a great sense of humour and interacted with us all, creating a great sense of camaraderie within the (large) group. The tour was great value for money on terms of the amount of free chocolate we consumed (I was so glad I'd... More

My friend and I enjoyed the tour immensely - Rob and Sarah were brilliant tour guides and kept 30 odd people mesmorised for the duration of the tour. There was a lot of walking but this was to be expected, as it was a walking tour! We took in lots of places and Rob and Sarah had interesting and exciting... More
