We had one day in Paris and it was a great one thanks to our guide Claude. We saw and learned so much...it was a timeframe that wouldn't have worked without help and we left feeling like we not only had a great day but had a new friend in our guide.

I was traveling for work and had a day to spend in London so I decided on a private day tour. Harri, my guide was on time and made me feel at home being out with him. He took me places I know I wouldn't have been able to do on my own. His knowledge of the area and places... More

We wanted to see the houses and places where the film Pride and Prejudice was roll. We saw Burgerly house and Chatsworth. They were marvelous ! We loved Chatsworth. Due to the fact that in November some of the places are closed, we saw also Cambridge. It takes to long to drive to these places. Almost 3 hours so it... More

I couldn't have been happier with my day tours. My guide, Mike, was the perfect match. He was very knowledgeable on historical as well as current information for every place we visited. He was also a great driver and fun to chat with. I would definitely book with British Tours on my next trip, and will ask for Mike again!

The tour was a good he, with a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. The tour was on time, sufficient rest stops along he way. We loved our hotel in Bayeux, the Lion, was terrific. Hotel was one of two recommended by your tour company.

I booked a half-day private tour through my hotel concierge with British Tours and was richly rewarded by a trip to Hampton Court that was a highlight of my trip. My driver picked me up at my hotel in Belgravia and the driver was a retired detective whom was also my tour guide. He pointed out many things on our... More

My boyfriend and I had a fabulous two day walking tour with a British Tours guide in London. He was just outstanding in every respect, and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Having been to London several times, I was familiar with the major sights; however, my boyfriend had never been, and I wanted him to experience London such that... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
