We spent two half days touring London, Rod our guide was great. Got us to all the right spots for a perfect picture or parade that was about to begin. His knowledge of the locations we toured was astonishing. I highly recommend them.

Had a great trip yesterday with Keith- we did a day trip from London to Salisbury, Stonehenge, and the city of Bath. We couldn't have been happier! Keith picked us up at our hotel bright and early and filled our ride out to Salisbury with interesting facts about the parts on London and the countryside we were passing through. Great... More

We had one day in Paris and it was a great one thanks to our guide Claude. We saw and learned so much...it was a timeframe that wouldn't have worked without help and we left feeling like we not only had a great day but had a new friend in our guide.

We wanted to see the houses and places where the film Pride and Prejudice was roll. We saw Burgerly house and Chatsworth. They were marvelous ! We loved Chatsworth. Due to the fact that in November some of the places are closed, we saw also Cambridge. It takes to long to drive to these places. Almost 3 hours so it... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
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.
