“Context Tours Churches of Sir Christopher Wren”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

If you want a quick sightseeing overview, Context is probably not the tour for you. We have used this company for several years in several cities, and it has become our habit to schedule "off the beat" walks that you cannot easily obtain elsewhere. During our walk, we visited several of the City churches designed by Wren after the Great Fire. It was very informative, and our docent was knowledgeable and engaging. While more expensive than many tours, it is good value for money for those who want to go a little deeper.

“Exceptional walking tours of London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

This was our second extensive experience with Context, the first being in Rome- both times fabulous. The docents were all friendly, engaging and scholarly. Caroline was a tremendous help, answering many questions and making helpful suggestions in arranging our itinerary before leaving home. She was also our docent for a fascinating and memorable visit to the British Museum. Francesca is so knowledgeable and passionate about art, and was a perfect guide for the National Gallery. Sarah was our docent at the Tower of London- she was friendly and engaging and expertly explained the long history of the Tower. Sarah Jane did a wonderful job of guiding us through Westminster Abbey, relating the history of the Abbey to the history of Britain. She also took us inside the shrine of St. Edward the Confessor for prayer- a truly moving and unforgettable experience. Context Travel is an amazing company!

“Gastronomic London Tour was A #1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Kathy K. It was educational and fun. Kathy took us, among other places, to the emerging "Seven Dials" area which is absolutely quaint and has wonderful shops and restaurants. HIGHLY recommend this tour. Wish we had time for other tours with Context - will be using them again in the future.

“Fantastic way to see London and appreciate its history.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I booked and went on two tours with Context London - Westminster Abbey (Viv) and Hidden London (Lawrence). Both guides were extremely knowledgeable and presented the information in a friendly and easy to digest manner. Based on the size of each tour for future participants, I'm sure that the guides can give information at whatever level of knowledge desired. I was delighted to be complimented by Lawrence Owens on my knowledge of English History - and thus he amped (if there is such a word) it up. I would recommend these tours to any with an interest in English history, architecture, and fun. Lawrence and I finished our tour at Cheshire Cheese down in an ancient cellar having pints with some locals

“Best way to discover the British Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

We couldn't have found a better way to discover the British Museum. Our docent Caroline is passionate about her subject and is a good orator. She made the tour very interesting and dynamic. We had a great time discovering the museum and thanks for her advice for the lunch.
