Despite the chilly weather on Feb 5 afternoon our group of 6 all really enjoyed the 2 hour tour in the City. Since it was a Sunday we were not able to see any places from the inside (which I think is the case during weekdays). Our guide, Andy, was a true professional and - since English isn't the first...

I loved this tour. Tom was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history and building of the underground rail system. I could listen to him forever. He was so personable and talked to everyone one to one on the tour. I am recommending this tour to everyone I know who is coming to London. Thankyou Tom for the lovely tour.

A great tour! Our guide, Tom, has an authentic and infectious enthusiasm for the underground and its history. He brought the whole thing to life and gave us a real insight into the history of the underground.

I can't believe the review I have just read here, where some person has criticized the tour guide for having his dog along because "I might be allergic (to dogs) or I might not like dogs" for goodness sake. I have done this tour recently, and yes Nick (the tour guide) has his dog along but it was absolutely not... More

Hello; Not even the visit started, first surprised arrived. We had a unexpected guess, Sox, which was Nick's ( the guide) dog. Was never mentioned that animals will join... what if I am allergic, or just do not like dogs?? And Nick, if you cannot attend the dog while touring, please leave it at home, and dot not pass it...

Dear Nico, I am so sorry to hear you are dissatisfied with our tour. We just reviewed the situation with our team, as the original tour guide who was assigned to your tour had an urgent issue, Nick was stepped in to help out for this tour at a very short notice, that was the reason he could not find...

I booked the tor for the other half whose dream job would be as a tube driver, however I am a total tube geek now! We spent the rest of our week marveling at tube stations and... More

Ben was great. The history and feel of that time frame came alive with his knowledge of the pubs and beer. I would put this at the top of any London tour list.

I work in Somerset House and I'm in Coven Garden ALL the time. It was fantastic to discover all the quirky little secrets of the streets I walk through every day. Ben was a very good guide. Would definitely recommend.

As someone who travels to London regularly, and used to commute every day, it was great to spend a leisurely couple of hours learning about the history and unusual aspects of the London Underground. Ben was friendly and informative and I learned a lot of new facts about the Underground and was made aware of points of interest which I... More

My teenage son and I recently took a walking tour in the financial district of London. Andy is very knowledgeable. As a former employee of Lloyd's, Andy had a great understanding of every aspect of the financial district and its underpinnings. We spent two hours with Andy and time flew by. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone interested in... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
