Booked a guided bus tour with personal guide two Sundays in a row for a large group (34-36 people). The bus came on time, the drivers were excellent, and the guide (Mark, who was with us both weekends) was very good! He had good knowledge about everything we saw on the tour around the town! Could highly recommend this company.

We visited Windsor on Monday 27th of February with approximately 100 customers. My arrangements were very fluid in that we didn't know how many of the customers would appreciate walking round with a guide or how many would have rather wandered off on their own. Nor did I know particularly what we should visit whilst we were there. The only... More

We hired a day guide, Harri Williams (Blue Badge Guide), through our hotel (Ham Yard Hotel) concierge to do a 7 hour private tour . He was extremely knowledgeable about London and all of its history. We were given up-close and personal attention to all of the sites. He provided abundant historical information, lots of humor and even related it... More

Certainly the best way to go and come back from Twickenham a match day with a very nice and experimented driver in the service of his passengers, who knew how to deposit us the closest of the stadium and who has waited for us there nearby for return. Very important when you have old passengers. Estimated transfer time from St-Pancras... More

I have never had a chance to see London. I hired a guide through British Tours, Alex Mackie. He was outstanding. He showed up exactly on time and started by asking me about my interests and then tailored the tour to what I wanted -- historical sites. Alex was knowledgeable, fascinating, funny and a very nice guy. In four hours... More

Quick background: we organised a surprise 50th birthday for my dad who loves history with all our family friends. There were 12 of us, - 6 adults (age 47-54) and 6 'children' (age 19-23). We hired a limo so Jonathan, our guide, was with us all day in the limo and walking around! We had the BEST time and a... More

We took a private day tour of the highlights of London. Our tour guide was Marc, he knew everything about London! It was great. The van was clean and the driver was great. I highly recommend this company.

Len was an excellent guide. The best we have had in our lives. He was trully knowledgeable and at the sane time had the ability to keep my 9 yo paying attention. We were able to visit everything in our list. I highly recommend him.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
