Rock and Roll - Al, was a phenomenal guide. His knowledge of Soho and the history of the area was impressive. Al’s ability to establish report with everyone in the group and tailor the tour to the different interest was a skill all tour guides need to imitate. I highly recommend Al and this tour to anyone visiting London. A five star experience.

NOT TO MISS - FABULOUS DRINKING/WALKING TOUR - Henry was a fabulous and funny guide. We really enjoyed hearing about the history of Soho and what is going on now and in the past.
