We hired a day guide, Harri Williams (Blue Badge Guide), through our hotel (Ham Yard Hotel) concierge to do a 7 hour private tour . He was extremely knowledgeable about London and all of its history. We were given up-close and personal attention to all of the sites. He provided abundant historical information, lots of humor and even related it... More

Certainly the best way to go and come back from Twickenham a match day with a very nice and experimented driver in the service of his passengers, who knew how to deposit us the closest of the stadium and who has waited for us there nearby for return. Very important when you have old passengers. Estimated transfer time from St-Pancras... More

I have never had a chance to see London. I hired a guide through British Tours, Alex Mackie. He was outstanding. He showed up exactly on time and started by asking me about my interests and then tailored the tour to what I wanted -- historical sites. Alex was knowledgeable, fascinating, funny and a very nice guy. In four hours... More

Quick background: we organised a surprise 50th birthday for my dad who loves history with all our family friends. There were 12 of us, - 6 adults (age 47-54) and 6 'children' (age 19-23). We hired a limo so Jonathan, our guide, was with us all day in the limo and walking around! We had the BEST time and a... More

We took a private day tour of the highlights of London. Our tour guide was Marc, he knew everything about London! It was great. The van was clean and the driver was great. I highly recommend this company.

Len was an excellent guide. The best we have had in our lives. He was trully knowledgeable and at the sane time had the ability to keep my 9 yo paying attention. We were able to visit everything in our list. I highly recommend him.

We booked a private day tour of Paris with a Cantonese guide, but felt that the experience was definitely not worth the price. We left feeling disappointed and slightly frustrated, especially since we were so excited to visit. There didn't seem to be much communication between the company (British Tours) and the guide, as there were some mis-assumptions from the... More

We booked 2 full day tours. One day included a comprehensive tour around London and the other was to Windsor and Stonehenge. The experience was made so easy since we were picked up and delivered back to our hotel. Jeff was our guide for both, and he was exceptional. Not only was he incredibly informative with deep background about all... 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.
