Heretics and Horrors walk reviews:

As usual this was a brilliant walk with Hazel. Lots of historical information and very interesting places. This was my fourth walk with Hazel and it won't be my last as every one of them has been excellent." N. Seymour, London

This is a very interesting and informative tour. Hazel the guide is very knowledgable and entertaining. S. Anderson, London

Enjoyed Hazel's tour of the city, she started with the great fire of London and ended with showing us where benedict cumberbatch jumped off st barts as Sherlock. My 20 year old niece also enjoyed it which is high praise. We would definitely go on another one. L. Cross, Kent

Another enjoyable walk with Hazel. I liked the idea of going macabre for Valentine's Day. As always the tour highlighted buildings and monuments that ordinarily are rushed past and vividly described their tormented past. My baby joined me in his pram and we are already signed up for our next outing with Hazel! H. Morgan

A really fascinating way to spend an hour and a half in London. Hazel was a great guide, very informative and delivered her walk and talk beautifully. I will definitely be getting out on one of her walks again. Even though I have lived in London all my life, I learnt so much. An added bonus - my dog was welcomed to join the walk! N.Taylor, Kent

Great walking tour if you're looking for something to do for a couple of hours before dinner on a Saturday night. Tour guide was really good and was an interesting walk! Becky, Shoreditch

Great time was had even in the rain! Really good information and little background stories making it seem like yesterday. Hazel has a genius for bringing it all to life! L Winder

We took this walk around the city with Havel on Valentine's Day. She was absolutely brilliant, informative and entertaining - even though it was beyond freezing. She really managed to pique my imagination through her descriptions and made me love London even more if that is possible! So amazing to be able to do something fun and affordable. T. O'Malley

Dragons in the City of London  

- The City of London is surrounded by dragons

On this London walk we explore the city of London in search of these proud and yet elusive beasts. Although dragons occur in many legends around the world, different cultures have varying stories about monsters that have been grouped together under the dragon label. Some dragons are said to breathe fire or to be poisonous, such as in the Old English poem Beowulf. Which dragons will we find?

Dragon Walk walk reviews:

“Fun and educational London Dragon walk”

Hazel is an excellent guide. Lots of interesting and fun facts about the City of London and its dragons. She is very enthusiastic and happy to answer questions. I really enjoyed all the literary links too.

“City Dragons”

Excellent walk. Lovely day the sun was shining. the 90 minutes flew past . Very knowledgeable guide. A definite to tell friends. Definitely would go on another walk.

Always enjoy Hazels talks and provides great food for thought as she talks her way to reveal the capitals hidden gems. J. Arkley

“Fun Dragon Walk on 31st October (afternoon)”

Our small party of three adults joined this friendly guided tour. Hazel was well researched about the fascinating history of dragons in the City of London and further afield. The group wasn't too big like other guided tours, which meant we could all hear our guide and keep together as we walked about. We liked how Hazel created a relaxed and sociable environment, whilst educating us about the history of dragons and pointing out new places we could visit another time. There is an option to go to the pub afterwards, which is a nice idea if a person has come on their own.

Haunted Marylebone and Mayfair walk reviews:

"This was a great walk with a large town out of people. The organizer did a wonderful job hosting the walk and took us down some lovely hidden gems in Marylebone and Mayfair. A lovely evening out! I would recommend this and look forward to doing another walk soon!" Hima, NW London

“Halloween walk”

Hazel is brilliant, she knows an enormous amount about London and mixes straightforward history with fascinating anecdotes and lots of interesting stories. She has a lovely sense of humour and she manages the walk and her audience superbly, it's excellent value for money and always a very friendly welcoming atmosphere.

“Haunted London”

An excellent walk. Not only a chance to hear some old ghost stories of London but a chance to see the beautiful historic London Inns and their connections to the supernatural! Thank you Hazel.

“Haunted Pubs walk. Highly recommended”

The guide, Hazel, was excellent. The walk was great fun, but also incredibly informative. I learnt a lot about my own city which surprised me, so a super experience for both locals and visitors alike. We were a quite a large group and in spite of that Hazel took the time to answer all questions any one asked. All in all top marks in all areas.
