We on this working tour with some friends. Our tour guide Alan, was very informative, he brought the brutality of the murders to life. Alan was also very funny, and kept the group engaged even in the bitter cold. I would recommend anyone to do this tour.

Went on a chocolate walking tour of London. Visited 6 or 7 shops, receiving free samples in each, sometimes even 2 or 3 samples. All were very tasty! The stores are all quite close together so walking was easy paced. You receive discount in most of the stores. Our guide Lisa was very good. Really friendly and informative. She definitely... More

Went on a Jack the Ripper tour with some friends who were visiting London. It was thoroughly entertaining and atmospheric, I felt transported back to anotherworld. It's amazing how so many of the same streets and even the same pubs still exist from Jack's time Our tour guide John gave it a wonderfully theatrical edge that made the entire experience... More

Great tour for the money John was great. The only complaint was that it was too big a group for the Saturday. I'm only giving it 5 stars for John's effort during the tour. Bit of a cheek to expect us to use the tube so that should be clearly marked on the website too. However a good tour guide... More

I booked the chocolate tour of London as part of a romantic weekend that I bought my chocolate loving girlfriend for Christmas and so was desperate for it to be good. Fortunately it was excellent and we both had a very good time. Our splendid tour guide was Lisa, who was knowledgeable, engaging and made us forget about the fact... More

I booked the Hollywood Cupcake Tour for my mom, daughter, and myself. I drove over an hour to get to the location. I was told in an email that I received on the Thursday before the tour to meet on the corner of 3rd Street and La Cienega at 12pm. We got there about 1115am and waited. We stood on... More

John and Alan were exceptional on this tour very professional and very informative about all Harry Potter related stuff and other things to do in London as well. Bit long and two tube rides to take but overall the entertainment value was worth it from the guides. Thanks again, will be booking again on another tour. Harry Potter pub crawl... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
