What's the Deal?
We believe in being up front with our guests about what's in, and what's out when it comes to tour costs. And we absolutely never force shopping or take you places where we get kickbacks. When food's included, it's included for real - none of this "first drink and snack free" thing.
Public Transit or Pickup
For our walking tours and night tours, meeting spots are always conveniently located close to train or subway stops. For car tours, pick up is included, but for walking and night tours, pick up can be arranged at additional cost.
Real English, real skills, and great personalities. Our guides have the knowledge and expertise to provide you with interesting, fun, and memorable tours.
Our tours never leave you to wonder about on your own. Your guide stays with you the whole time, unless, for example, you want a bit of time to roam a garden or have lunch on your own.
Night tours include dinner, half day walking tours have no meal stops, and full day tours have a lunch stop at your expense (we will consult with you and find a place to your liking).
