An indulgent treat for our chocolate-loving tastebuds! On this walking tour the group spent a couple of hours moving at a nicely relaxed pace between locations in the west end of London, exploring deliciously different and hugely tempting flavours at each chocolate shop. Generous discounts were available for optional purchases chosen en route, but all samples were included in the... More

Went on Harry Potter tour which was going to be walking around London for 2 and half hours in the rain and wind. The weather was so bad got completely soaked so left after 40 minutes the tour guide wasn't bothered wouldn't go again.

Had a great time visiting 5 different chocolate shops. Mark our guide was informative and was never hurrying us up. Tried lots of chocolate, my favourite was at Paul Young. Very interesting and fun day.

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

Met at the Algerian coffee shop and had over two hours visiting various chocolate shops - never realised there were so many in London. Lisa our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about chocolate. When I had decided I would be ill if I eat any more chocolate she packed my free samples up in a bag to take home.... More

I liked this tour ( walking tour) although one of my friends he was not happy because he doesnt like walking. I like walking and having relax in cafes. I strongly recommend it as london is one of the freindly place for pedistrians.

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.

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.
