Becky was an outstanding guide. She was funny, knowledgeable, patient and engaging. The last hour was in pouring rain, and my kids didn't complain once. I think that says it all!

This was the most interesting and fun tour I had. The guide (Angus) was really entertaining while delivering all sorts of information and answers to any questions that came up. Time flew by but not the information about London.

Joined the free tour with Becky and it was really interesting. She is amazing and lovely. While showing us the main attractions within the city, she managed to keep everyone entertained with interesting facts about the place. I also purchased the Old city of London tour after, with Angus, He is really friendly too. All the information he provided is... More

I always enjoy taking walking tours in a new city! Our guide Angus did a very good job explaining some of the lesser known facts about London. I highly recommend taking this tour on your first day in London!

Had a truly enjoyable afternoon with the tour guide Rachel and would totally recommend it! Took almost 3 hours and I never lost my attention since the stories Rachel could tell were so interesting and amazingly acted by her.

Three hour walking tour with a guide who really put a lot of effort into making his trip interesting and unique, describing everything with intonation to make it funny and to hold the interest of all through the end of the tour. Thanks Nick, you were awesome!

We went on a walk with Becki on our first day in London. She was an amazing tourguide, showed us the main attractions with a lot of interesting explanations and funny stories. One of our best days in London.

I've been on several of these walking tours across Europe, but none were as entertaining as the Royal Tour given by Rachel. She makes a real effort to engage the group, while being funny too! Plus, I learned a ton. :)

The first time I used Sandeman's New Europe tours was in Edinburgh (with David from Australia - request him, he was wonderful!) and I quickly fell in love with the company, breakdown of the tour & just how informative the tour was. Lars was super interactive and kept every minute of the tour entertaining. He was beyond friendly and even... More

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.
