I have done a few of the walking tours now in various cities, but Becky was the most outstanding guide by far! Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and energetic, she made the tour very enjoyable. She said she gets more work if we leave positive reviews...so I hope this works, because anyone going on one of her tours should consider themselves lucky!!

We even got to see the... More

The free tour covers a lot of London's famous sights such as Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and Big Ben and other,less well known sights. The Grim Reaper Tour starts at the Tower of... More

Alternative Tour of London - My friend and I had a great time with Paulina. Paulina is a world citizen and most appropriate guide for this cosmopolitan city. She is bubbly and approachable and shared fun facts around east London. I have always enjoy tours with the Sandemans (did Berlin, Copenhagen and now London) as their guides are good

We did the free walking tour with Jake and it was a 5 star tour. The fact that Jake is a native of London is another plus point in his favor as he manages to transmit his love for London and infect us. In addition, he is a person always available who is not afraid to talk with us about... More

For a decent (and 'free') tour of main London attractions this is definitely a worthwhile tour. Becky was a fabulous guide. She was informative and answers numerous group questions.

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.
