The tour guide was very knowledgable and entertaining. I would totally recommend it. But we arrived 4 mins late (as London was really busy due to a music event... More

One person had to contact the company eventually via instant messaging, we were told tour was cancelled, also told to go back to where we purchased tickets for money back - clearly didn't care about letting their customers down. Theres much to do in London don't waste your time with these guys they are unreliable.

We really enjoyed Giles' tour who certainly knows his stuff about London and was entertaining throughout. The drama was so graphic at one point I managed to keel over.... My only criticism was that the tour felt a bit long after two and half hours. Nonetheless, a great way to experience some of London's history and the Ripper story.

This company is very unprofessional! We had a total of 16 people booked weeks in advance to go on this tour this Saturday 7/2/2016 and Thursday morning..we all get a text, "Regrettably your tour has been postponed due to low numbers. Please reschedule." We had 16, do you mean they did not have anyone in all of Los Angeles on... More

Fab way to spend a few hours!! Our guide Lisa was very knowledgable and friendly, she led us round Soho and the neighbouring areas which were extra busy as it was Pride but she did a great job. It was an extra bonus we got to pick our own chocolates and you got to try more than one in a... More

This was the second time I've joined this this tour and it was as enjoyable as the first. What I enjoyed about the tour was the combination of sightseeing, learning about historical fun facts and, of course, trying the the cupcakes and macarons. I have to say that initially I was hoping to sample the big cupcakes during the tour... More

Very good tour, our guide John was great and really informative. The cakes and Macarons were yummy and it's a great way to see a city, whether you know it well or are visiting for the first time. Highly recommended.

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.
