    A magical evening
    We enjoyed seeing the various Harry Potter filming locations and hearing about how they were integrated into the films. Our guide was Jack. He was personable, enthusiasm and knowledgeable. I encourage Harry Potter fans to take this tour.

    Vivienne rocks (the tour is great as well)
    Vivienne was amazing! Really friendly and happy to answer everything. The tour was interesting and recommended. Be prepared to see not only harry potter attractions but other interesting sights of Edinburgh which made the experience more comprehensive even for non HP fans.

    Amazing tour
    I recently took the Jack the Ripper tour and it was an incredible experience! Our guide, Hannah, brought a fascinating and fresh perspective to the chilling history of Jack the Ripper. Her storytelling was captivating, weaving historical facts with engaging anecdotes that made the tour both educational and thrilling. If you're looking for an engaging and informative journey into the mysteries of Jack the Ripper, I highly recommend this tour, especially with Hannah as your guide!

    Great time, great guide & great cheese!
    Our guide Jack was great, a real wealth of knowledge & humour to go with it! I did this with my son for his 23rd birthday as a gift, i thought it would be something a little different & it didn't disappoint! We had a great group of people with us on the tour, we all had a giggle & learnt lots of useless & interesting bits & pieces! I would highly recommend if you'd like to try something new.

    Great way to see London & eat cheese!
    The Cheese Crawl was a great way to spend two hours wandering around London & seeing parts of the city we’d not been to before. ‘Monterey’ Jack, our guide, was excellent. He was very friendly & knowledgeable even though he’s jokes were extremely cheesey!!

An advertisement for this company and their virtual tours has popped up on me on Instagram so I was curious about what it was. I've checked the offer and thought that I have nothing to lose on boring quarantine evening and it only costs £5 so even better. I've booked a virtual tour starting in like 45 minutes and after following instructions to join (sadly not working on my computer) I've connected to the zoom meeting on my phone. I've not had many expectations but the virtual guide John have absolutely took me by surprise with how fun and interesting his tour was. It felt very relaxed and it felt like the group of people was like a group of friends for the hour of the tour haha. There were really interesting stories supported by nice presentation with pictures and we also did some quizz activities that were really fun!
I have booked another virtual tour for tomorrow evening immediately after finishing this one and I hope that it is going to be just as good as this one was!
Definitely recommend, the best £5 I've spent in quarantine so far haha.

I didn’t know what to expect as I read mixed reviews of online tours but if you have some free time and a spare fiver definitely give these tours a go. John our tour guide was thoroughly entertaining especially with his little quips. I never realised there was so much dark history in London and the ghost stories were really creepy. I loved the true/false quiz midway through and 3 lucky people won a fantastic prize too. Also it makes you want to dig deeper on some of the stories and John advises where to research. It’s a interactive tour so you can chat with your fellow attendees and ask your tour guide questions. Give it a try

So due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my friend and I took this tour via Zoom meeting. I really enjoyed this tour and our guide John was great! It was a little off putting with over 70 people in the group and some sending lots of chats. However, John did well at ignoring any silly comments and was very informative! Great value for money and I’ll definitely be looking at the other tours they have to offer

Did this virtual tour while under a "Stay at Home" order in the USA due to COVID-19. Tom, our tour guide, was a very engaging and animated storyteller and was very knowledgeable of London ghosts. He even included the story of one personal ghost encounter! I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you so much!

Enjoyed my first virtual tour very much. Host was lively and funny and imparted a lot of information with good back-up visuals. Very professionally done.
Just disappointed that I didn’t manage to copy and paste my discount for another tour before it disappeared.

John did a great job telling stories and providing pictures. Loved hearing the stories of the past and the crazy things people believed and still believe today. It was nice feeling a connection to London during this time of staying at home and not being able to travel.

This was fantastic, the host was very engaging and managed the zoom audience with ease. The content was very good, lots of new information, very well laid out and really well presented. The addition of a quiz/game with prize was also excellent and lots of fun. Very good all round, I have booked another already! A1+

This was our second See Your City virtual tour. John (aka Hagrid) gave a fun and fascinating trip around some of London's most haunted landmarks, which we got to enjoy from the comfort of our sofa. Definitely looking to do a third tour, hopefully we'll get to do one in-person soon!

I really enjoyed this experience. What a fun way of seeing and learning about somewhere without physically having to be there! It was a great way to spend an evening, especially during this period when many people aren’t getting out and about very much due to COVID-19, especially those of us with underlying health conditions. I did feel that the guide talked a little bit fast though. If she could have slowed down a little just to give us a chance to absorb all the information, that would have been great. I realise she was only speaking so fast due to time restrictions of course, so perhaps the tour could be made a little longer, even if it means paying a little bit more? It’s very good value for money, so I’m sure people wouldn’t mind paying a little bit extra for a slightly longer tour. Also, personally, I’d prefer one quiz right at the end rather than questions being asked all through the tour - I felt it took my concentration away from the information we were being given at times. Just suggestions, please don’t take them as complaints, as that’s not what they are. I really enjoyed myself. :)
