This was by far one of the best walking tours I have ever done. It was a perfect fusion of history, amazing stories, fun facts, insider knowledge, and light-hearted humour. Not only was it seeing the key sites of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square etc, it was also an insight into the life of London itself, from pub culture to the theatrical West End. This was the best introduction to London I could have asked for, and the guide's recommendations map has helped me on the rest of my trip in London. I'll definitely be doing more tours with Walkative in the future!

This is such an interesting part of London and Pini explained the history and culture and art scene. He clearly knows and loves the area and his enthusiasm is infectious. Great tour with delicious bagels at the end.

We had a nice time with Richard. He showed us many of the iconic spots related to the Ted Lasso show. Of course the pub was the highlight. A great place to finish. Richmond is a wonderful area. Definitely worth it for any fan of the show. The tour was only an hour but that was appropriate for what we needed to see.

I booked this tour with Arjun because I wanted to learn more about the myths and legends that London and the city of London rest on. I’m happy to share that my expectations were even exceeded. I was the only one that booked the tour on this day so Arjun basically took me on a private tour through all of the stations with some extra details and discussions. I highly recommend!

The walk was interesting but we did not go to the Southbank? We stayed on the north bank!

Richard is a very committed Guide. Unfortunaltely we were send to the wrong starting point by Guruwalk so we waited for over half an hour for him. Was not his fault. So organization - at least as we experienced it - was poor. The tour itself was nice. Lots of places and facts in short time. Thanks Richard!

Covent Garden is London's largest and oldest fruit and vegetable market. It is also an entertainment district with stores, restaurants and pubs. In the 18th century, Covent Garden was even used as a venue for opera performances at the Crystal Palace.
Tourists are often attracted to this area because of the number of sites they can visit in one place, including famous theatrical productions such as Peter Pan. Covent Garden Piazza was also home to the first traffic light installed in London in 1868.
As you can see there are many curiosities and too many things to pay attention to in this bohemian district of the English capital. That is why we recommend you to count with the professional guide of one of the Free Tours that we offer you here at GuruWalk.
Covent Garden Market is a popular market that can be found in London's West End.
Since the Middle Ages, Covent Garden was a center of wholesale fruit and vegetable trade. In 1830, the market moved to its current site on James Street. The new site was designed by Sir Robert Smirke, who created four pavilions that were arranged in a square around an open courtyard.
The market has six main entrances: three on each side of the square and all facing James Street. There are also two entrances to the right of the square on Upper James Street.
Inside is the Apple Market.
The Covent Garden Apple Market is a tourist destination that has been open for over 60 years. It began as a fruit and flower market, but is now primarily an apple market.
Covent Garden Apple Market is the most famous apple market in London. There are a lot of stalls where you can buy apples from different countries, such as France, Italy, the United States and New Zealand. Prices vary depending on the country, but the good thing is that they all have instructions in English so you don't have to worry about using your details to try to translate them before buying.
But not everything will be to enjoy the commercial activity, architecturally this London district has a lot to teach. Its buildings are truly iconic and two in particular stand out.
The Covent Garden Transport Museum is a museum that shows the history of transport and how it has progressed over time. The museum features some iconic London vehicles, such as the world's oldest bus. It also features a replica of London's first subway train.
The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden is a world-renowned tourist destination where people can enjoy the beauty of a live performance. It has been there for over 200 years and has never closed. The building was designed by architect Edward John Ellis, who also built the Royal Albert Hall and the Crystal Palace. The Opera House was originally designed to be a theater, but in 1892 it became an opera house. Each year it hosts more than three hundred performances and is currently ranked as one of the most popular tourist destinations in London.
