Very interesting tour! Justin is knowledgeable about British history, economy and politics. His anecdotes were very engaging and things I had seldom learned about before . The Christmas lights and displays sprinkled throughout the tour were a welcome bonus. Highly recommend!

Great experience. Ben was a very knowledgeable guide who not only told us the history behind famous landmarks, but he also threw in some obscure facts and trivia.

I thought I knew plenty about my home city but Justin knows much, much more and shares his knowledge in an entertaining and absorbing way. Pitched at just the right level with plenty of context as well as a stack of little-known facts that paint a revealing picture of London life.

Awesome! Great tour with Robert, an excellent guide. If you are into culture, history and general topics that keep you curious, this is the tour for you. Robert knows a lot about London and the UK and is very kind, he will be more that happy to tell you what he knows. About the tour, it was great, if you like to walk you will be able to see the main touristic attractions within the 3 hours and even have time for good pics.

The tour was truly great - interesting, informational, and critical! Vincent is a an amazing guide, and through his amazing examples he made the tour very intersectional, covering a wide range of issues, from the tripple oppression of women, to women's representation in arts, to the origins and remains of colonialism. I highly recommend both Vincent and this tour.

London City of Sin Free Tour

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.
