Very interesting and entertaining tour
Oct. 2021 • Friends
We really enjoyed our tour with Neil. He is very informative, knowledgeable and extremely entertaining, bursting into song at various times through the tour. Neil had been very good at communicating and allowing us to postpone the tour until we were able to travel to London again.
I would recommend the tour to anyone interested in the musicals, the history of the west end and the theatres.

For anyone with even a vague interest in musical theatre this tour was excellent. The host's knowledge and clear passion for musical theatre really made for an interesting and enjoyable tour. Quite how he keeps so many facts in his head I have no idea!! I would strongly recommend!

Incredible Musical Theatre History
Mar. 2020
My mum and I attended the Musical Theatre Walking Tour on Sunday 1st March 2020.

Neil had a font of knowledge all about West End Musical Theatre history that was just fascinating. How he remembers so much, I will never know!

The length of the tour was great, it wasn't cut short but also didn't over run and make it too lengthy.

The change of pace when Neil would break out into song was great and really added to the experience.

At the start of the tour Neil asked the group to name their top 3 favourite musicals, that was great to get the attendees involved in the experience. However, I would say after this point we would have enjoyed some more interactive elements to the tour.

Overall for musical theatre lovers who want to learn more about the industry's history, this is the perfect opportunity to do so.

Would totally recommend this to anyone who wants to experience the love of theatre but in a different way to going and seeing a show.

Thank you for your time Neil.

Loved every second ESPECIALLY the singing!!!
Feb. 2020
What a lovely way to spend 2 hours on a busy Friday night in London's West End!
Neil is exceptionally knowledgeably about all aspects of Musicals in the West End and shares his passion with enthusiasm. The singing is wonderful - Neil has a lovely singing voice and encouraged us to join in - I was only sorry we didn't have a collecting tin for our impromptu street performances.
If you enjoy musicals then this is the walking tour for you.

What a great time. I had a class in London studying the west end and Neal’s tour was the perfect jump start. His tour is full of interesting Theatre stories and was so entertaining. He really knows what he is talking about and kept the students (and me) on their toes! Truly a fabulous evening!!
