Booked to do the Harry Potter Walking Tour last month, planned whole day in London around it which included near £100 just on train tickets. However I got 4 text messages Wednesday night (the tour was booked for Thursday morning) to our Landline home phone but not my mobile phone, which I had supplied. This caused problems as my landline... More

booked this tour through groupon a week before flying to London for the weekend and thought it would be a good way to spend an afternoon. On the Wednesday i got numerous texts saying the tour was cancelled and to check my emails for instructions to re-book. I began to panic as it was a surprise for my friend too!... More

Absolutely brilliant way to spend a couple of hours! John was an amazing tour guide, friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned loads of interesting facts about the area, walked down streets that we wouldn't otherwise have noticed - and got to eat delicious cakes and macarons along the way - what more could you ask for?!

Me and two friends had a fantastic time on the chocolate tour. Our tour guide Alan was full of interesting facts and kept us entertained for the full 2.5 hours. We got to try lots of different chocolates stopping at multiple shops. Would highly recommend! I live in London and still learnt lots of facts I never knew.

We'd come up from Kent and had planned our day out for sometime around this your we were really looking forward to it. Disgraceful, we'll seek compensation and refund, DO NOT BOOK with... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
