4hr Introductory tour reviews:

"The best thing we did all vacation. We booked a 4hr introduction to London tour with Hazel for our first day and I am glad we did! Getting an overall view of the history of London and how the streets and places link together was really interesting. Knowing how to use the subway and London buses was really useful and surely saved us from embarrassing situations during rush hour. We felt very well looked after in the capable hands of Hazel who went out of her way to make it a day to remember. Thanks Hazel, you're a star!" Jerry

"Very interesting and informative tour. You can learn and discover a lot of new things. Perfect for tourists and for people new toLondon. Hazel is a great guide. Thank you. " Debbie

"Hazel is the perfect guide - knowledgeable, engaging and very good with children (and adults). Highly recommended." Karim

"I found it to be without exception well organised, well researched, informative and above all, fun." Sue O

"Very interesting and informative day out, some of which go off the normal tourist trails to discover the more quirky side of London. Fascinating!" Mike

"Our 10 year old very much enjoyed the old routemaster bus and the Harry Potter location stories. Our particular favourite was walking through Westminster and learning and about the places where so much history was made. Oh and thanks for our photo album - it was great to have photos of the whole family together!" Claudio
