Great Christmas Tour
Marcella A
, Dec 2019
This was a great walking tour around Covent Gardens that gives you some history about Christmas in London. Our guide, Harley, was great. He was born and raised in London, so in addition to the information from the tour, he also had great insights about what to do and see in and around London. It is about 2 hours walking with a stop midway for mulled wine and fruit mince pie(delicious!!). Our 8 year old also enjoyed the tour,but not sure kids much younger than that would enjoy it or could handle all the walking.

Great way to get into the season

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Harley. I was a bit amazed at just how many of London's Christmas markets we had a chance to visit without it being an overly tiring walk. Harley also made a point of showing us a few out-of-the-way, quieter spots that can be found in the city, which I really appreciated. I loved the pub we stopped in for our mulled wine and minced pie, both of which were excellent. Add in the discussion of how the Christmas traditions developed over time, and in London specifically, and this was definitely money and time well spent.

This was a great walking tour! We learned about the history of Christmas traditions throughout the tour, walked through markets and through quaint and quiet parts of town and concluded the tour with mulled wine. Tour guide was wonderful and extremely personable. Highly recommend!

I had already walked most of the tour route on my own before hand not knowing that I was, but Glenn still made it an amazing tour. He did so much research before the tour to give us the history of Christmas in London while we walked around taking in the sights. It added so much more to the tour. I also appreciated the fact that there was just three of us on the tour besides Glenn. I wish I had booked more tours with Beard and Bald for the remainder of my time in London.
