    Great introduction to London!
    Simon was a WONDERFUL guide. He was so knowledgeable, funny, and kind. It was a quick and easy walk to and from the meeting spot. My daughter and I enjoyed all the food!

    Very spoilt mum
    Popped into Harrods as mum had never been and stumbled into the champagne bar! It was mum's birthday, so a glass of something was in order. Treated impeccably as expected and enjoyed the ambience. Obviously, it's not the cheapest place to drink, but it was for a special day. Thoroughly and it.

    Drinks after shopping
    The champagne o'clock cocktail is possibly the best cocktail I've ever tasted and the pipped norecella olives were devine, a great place for a treat after shopping!

    High Tea at Kensington gardens is a “must do” in London
    Our high tea and tour through Kensington garden was a wonderful experience from start to finish! Our tour guide Doug was fantastic! He was very personable and very knowledgeable on the history of the gardens. He pointed out significant landmarks with detailed explanations about them. He was very patient and allowed us plenty of time to take photos. After touring the gardens we enjoyed high tea. The tea, sandwiches and desserts were delicious and again our tour guide Doug did a wonderful job going over the history of how high tea was started. This two hour tour went by so fast and was one the most enjoyable part of our time in London. I would definitely recommend the tour and Doug as your guide!

    How to feel rushed and unwanted
    Visited Harrods Champagne Bar on the 07/12/23. The lady who greeted us could have broken a smile but resisted, and informed us we had 45mins... the bar had a steady flow of people, but was by no means full. After spending £146.18, and yet requesting to order further drinks, we were refused as our time was up... bizarre business model, if a customer is still spending, why not accommodate?

    Disappointed Royal Tea
    This was a very disappointing experience. The guide was excellent but the Royal Tea was anything but…felt like you were sitting in a gymnasium! Decor was plastic tables & chairs! Cheap fake flowers & arbor ! The service was horrible..we had to wave down a server for 2nd cup of tea & box for treats to go. They were attentive only when wanting to close out our bill & close promptly at 4pm due to security with the Palace. Do not recommend. There are other options for tea.

    High Tea
    Our guide Astrid was wonderful. We spent about an hour walking through the gardens hearing stories and history before having tea in a pavilion next to Kensington Palace.

An incredible tour of Hampton Court Palace followed by a delicious high tea next to the Thames. Thomas was so knowledgeable and informative for the tour and attentive in ensuring everything went smoothly for afternoon tea. Will be booking another experience again soon.

Our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable, I really got so much insight into what life in Henry VIII's court was like and different foods produced and served in the kitchens. Seeing the recreation of the lost Crown was a treat. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting an amazing day out.

It was a brisk cold day but the sun shone and our guide was polite and informative. We spent an hour getting oriented in the massive palace and then went for a High Tea just outside the grounds overlooking the river. We were then free to explore the grounds on our own until 4pm when the Palace closed. You need to plan to spend the whole day here as there is a lot to see.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and went at a pace that suited us (I have a bit of a mobility issue at the moment). We learned a lot about the history of the venue. The tea across the street was also very nice - the complement of sandwiches and the desserts were extraordinarily tasty! All in all a good day out.

If you’re going to visit Hampton Court Palace I would recommend that you book this tour. I can honestly say that it’s the best one I’ve been on.

The guide was knowledgeable, interesting and really brought the palace to life. It was a small group and everyone was included, if felt very friendly and exclusive.

The afternoon tea was amazing and served in such a beautiful setting overlooking the river.

All in all, fabulous day out!

To be able to walk the halls that King Henry VIII walked is am amazing experience. The castle is beautiful and well preserved.
What made the day even better was our tour guide, Julie. She was so pleasant, knowledgeable and informative. I rate the experience a 5 but I would give Julie a 10!
