We had a great tea experience at kensington garden! Our tour guide lauren was very patient( we were late) informative, and pleasant! The tea experience itself was classy and the food was delicious! It was nice to walk around the garden and learning the history. It’s Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

My favorite part about the experience was having High Tea with my guide and new friend Simon. Simon graciously recorded a narration of me pouring myself tea :D A gem for this American tourist! And of course, my finger sandwiches were quite enjoyable to have over great conversations. Queen's sanwhich, I learned how to eat scones properly, custard, salmon with caviar on a cracker, etc etc etc #yum

And of course the wonderful walk through Hyde Park where he helped me immerse myself in the dramatic history of the statues, parks, Queen's swans, parakeets, Canada geese, etc.

I had the misfortune of being late by 30 minutes but the company let Simon wait for me. I also appreciated how this company didn't cancel my tour because I was the lone customer for the time frame.

Overall a must-do experience when visiting London. British high-tea next to the Kensington Palace, kitty corner to Prince William and Princess Kate's 'apartment' ... something you can't say you can ever do anywhere else in the world.

Do check the weather for any rain since there aren't many places for cover. I was lucky to have been followed by some Sunshine from California in the the minutes it mattered most.

This tour was a treat for my mother and myself after an overnight flight from the United States. The stroll through Kensington Gardens was a nice leisurely walk and we really enjoyed soaking in the views followed by having tea at the same time as the queen (4:00 pm).

This was a very very nice day - we had a tour of the gardens in Hyde park and the guide was very knowledgeable and very very nice he was funny and just easy to talk to - he had a lot of interesting facts to tell us on the journey around the gardens, we then went to the pavaillion for afternoon tea, and this was very nicely presented and very tasty.

i would highly recommend this trip for anyone who would love a really nice afternoon with no hustle and bustle with a great guide and good food - plenty of time to stop for photos and watch the parakeets.

Really great experience. We had a mix of UK, US and Danish ppl. There was new info and interesting highlights for everyone. The tour guide was super knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend to visitors and locals. I plan to come back and bring my British in-laws, I think they would really enjoy it. Also the high tea was tasty! The guide pointed out some royals as they were going in, so a very authentic experience!

Thank you for your feedback but this experience has not been operating for more than 16 months and very surprised to hear this. As a standard, all our customers are offered a refill of their teapot for free and the Pimms is at the charge of the client unless you booked a VIP ticket. The experience reopened 1st July 2021 We hope you are keeping well
