“Excellent way to spend a couple of hours”
Review of Great British Tours London - CLOSED

Great British Tours London
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Excellent guide who showed us round starting at the Algerian Coffee house and finishing at the East India Company with Paul A Young and others in between, We had a tasting at each venue. The guide was knowledgeable about each shop and there was plenty of time to browse and buy!
Overall a perfect Mum and daughter experience.....did note there were no men visible in our tour party!

Really enjoyed the chocolate tour. Trying all the different chocolates in the different shops was excellent as was the history of chocolate making which our guide explained. The discount off which we got in each shop didn't hurt either! Though we did need a sit down and a cuppa at the end of it.

I organised this for my wife's birthday and we went together. Lisa was our guide and did a super job. She was enthusiastic. She provided us with a clear outline of the forthcoming couple of hours and she was warmly welcomed by the staff in every shop we visited. This familiarity at each place we visited added to the feel that you were in good hands. We had a lovely couple of hours and I would thoroughly recommend this tour with Lisa to any chocolate lovers.

The tour started at the Algerian coffee company and we stopped of at a variety of chocolate makers for tasting and supping. Siddy our guide was personable knowledgable and full of lots of facts and stories. Our group had a fantastic couple of hours or so having a wonderful, interesting and enjoyable time. Would recommend this tour totally.

We were on a Timeout half price deal. We found there was very generous sampling from each shop. Lisa, our guide, ensured that although I am lacto-intolerant I didn't miss out and was solicitous. She told us as much as we wanted to know. There were 10pp in the group which worked well.

As a Londoner who hadn't done a chocolate walk before, I really enjoyed it and will certainly visit Paul Young - fab hot chocolate and Carpo - yummy nuts with Himalayan salt again!
