However, I would have liked to have seen more photos on the tour as a lot of the areas we ventured into had drastically changed over the years. All in all,... More

We enjoyed a great couple of hours walking the streets of the West End eating cake. Our guide John offered interesting insights along the route and explained the ethos and history of the various bakeries & shops. All the establishments were high end / high quality and I would thoroughly recommend eating as much of their produce as possible. A... More

I can't seem to give 0 stars.I used a website called London England Tours to book an expensive Harry Potter tour. My son & I planned our vacation around it. We had the email confirmation and it said to meet at a restaurant location or call to arrange a hotel pickup. I should have known something was wrong when the... More

A delightful way to spend a saturday afternoon, wandering around London eating cupcakes and macarons. Our guide John obviously enjoys taking this tour as his enthusiasm and knowledge of the bakeries and London was entertaining. I would fully recommend it.

The trip was run in a professional but friendly and relaxed style by our excellent tour guide Eddie, and was complemented by him offering fascinating little snippets of info about the social and...

I really enjoyed my recent "Jack the Ripper" tour in London. It was quite interesting and I learned quite a bit about the history of London during the Rippers time. Joe was a great tour guide and made walking around Whitechapel fun and scary. You could picture what it was like living in the late 1800s in that seedy part... More

Booked this tour for my nieces birthday, our lovely guide yesterday was Lisa with a mine of information about the shops we visited as well as lots of historical snippets along the way. A leisurely walk around London and regular chocolate pit stops! Great day thanks Lisa
