Glenn was amazingly friendly and gave a great tour. As Americans we were extremely leery this would be a commercialized experience and not worth our time, BUT it was a highlight of our trip! If you’re American and reading this, fear not, DEFINITELY book this experience! It is not your typical tour!

On our visit to London, we were lucky to have Alan as our tour guide! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Soho and showed us some great spots that we would have never new existed. My girlfriend and I recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area who wants to learn some history and find some cool new places to drink. Thank you Alan for the tour!

Honestly Carlos is an AMAZING host! This was my first time doing an experience outside of the states and I truly am so glad I did. Carlos is so personable and knowledgeable, he honestly made me feel so welcomed and the experience quite whimsical. I learned so much about the area and the history I was honestly impressed. I’d recommend this experience over and over and over again. Thank you so much Carlos for making this experience one of a kind!

Alan was our tour guide, and he was absolutely brilliant. We've just moved to the UK and wanted to get to know the city better. He had amazing stories, awesome recommendations and a magical personal touch to everything. Definitely one of the best tours we had and we highly recommend it.
