Took the free walking tour, make sure to reserve ahead, and it was just great. Although we probably had the most rainy 2.5 hours during December, Becky turned it in a truly fun tour, with tones of historic stories and funny facts. So much better than touring on your own

Went for the walking tour with Angus Dec 18 and it was amazing! He gave an entertaining, engaging and well informed tour hitting many highlights. He was always happy to answer questions and told us stories about the local history I'll remember for ages.

Ivo Ramalho, good guide, better person. Amazing portuguese guy who has been living in London since 2005. He speaks Portuguese, English and Spanish. He is a little bit crazy and speaks so fast, but he's awesome.

Even though I've been to London several times, I went on the Free Tour with my daughter, so she could learn more. It was really good! Ivo did a great job and even made sure we were at St. James Palace right when the Horse Guards were beginning their changing of the guard. I highly recommend this tour and requesting... More

I did the Free Tour and the Old City tour both with Angos. He was simply amazing! Very engaging, easy to listen too, funny and interesting. This really helped me get around London and understand what I'm looking at. Highly recommended!

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.
