Our guide Andy was extremely knowledgeable and made history so entertaining during our free tour in London. I also recommend the London Ale Tour, where you can taste several different styles of beer and see the backstage of a pub.

My fourth Sandeman's tour in three cities! Still not as good as the two I took in Amsterdam, but waaaaaay better than the one in Paris. Nick gave a solid performace and I would definitely recommend him! Admitedly, the free walking tour started off kind of slow. Nick was charming and really made an effort to add his personal touches... More

I went on two totally different Jack the Ripper tours while I was in London. The first tour I booked was lead by another company and was maybe the most painfully boring thing I have ever done. The second tour I took was the Grim Reaper Jack the Ripper tour through this company and it got me so interested and... More

Becky was an outstanding guide. She was funny, knowledgeable, patient and engaging. The last hour was in pouring rain, and my kids didn't complain once. I think that says it all!

This was the most interesting and fun tour I had. The guide (Angus) was really entertaining while delivering all sorts of information and answers to any questions that came up. Time flew by but not the information about London.

Joined the free tour with Becky and it was really interesting. She is amazing and lovely. While showing us the main attractions within the city, she managed to keep everyone entertained with interesting facts about the place. I also purchased the Old city of London tour after, with Angus, He is really friendly too. All the information he provided is... More

I always enjoy taking walking tours in a new city! Our guide Angus did a very good job explaining some of the lesser known facts about London. I highly recommend taking this tour on your first day in London!

Had a truly enjoyable afternoon with the tour guide Rachel and would totally recommend it! Took almost 3 hours and I never lost my attention since the stories Rachel could tell were so interesting and amazingly acted by her.

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.
