This company changes names, does not communicate well after you have paid, and cancels tours and fights you if you want a refund. Don't use. Traveled in August 2015

We met at Shoreditch overground station and started with a brief history of the area before delving in to the wide variety of street art in the area. The pace was leisurely with the guide allowing time for people to take as many photos as they wanted en route. He is clearly passionate about the subject but also has a... More

A great couple of hours spent with our guide Alan visiting various chocolate shops around Soho and Piccadilly and learning some of the history of the surrounding area. Alan very knowledgeable and good fun. Chocolate tasting delightful. Take some water with you. We were lucky with the weather. No rain! If you love chocolate, definitely give this a go.

Booked this walk as part of our weekend in London for my husbands birthday. It was part of a Groupon deal and at £10 each was excellent value for money. John, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the street art in the area. Even my husband (who is not a lover of art in galleries) thoroughly enjoyed the diverse artworks... More

Booked this tour for my daughters 16th birthday following a theatre trip to Les Miserables. Received an email the evening before the tour advising the tour wasn't going ahead due to lack of numbers. No option for a refund. Very disappointed as this would have finished our weekend in London off nicely - also 20 pounds out of pocket!!

We went on a chocolate tour with Lisa. We got to try lots of different chocolates as well as getting to know the history of each of the stores we went in to. You got a discount in some stores as well. Our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable and friendly.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
