An enchanting experience and one of the top tours we’ve ever had in London! An absolute must way to see Kensington and the high tea was the cherry on top! David was delightful, knowledgeable and lovely company on a Saturday morning.

The tour was really nice. Laurent had all the secret stories about the royal family and so many interesting historic facts. The high tea after the tour was really good. I totally enjoyed the tour and can recommend it!

David is a good storyteller. He showed me some hidden spots of the Hyde park. The most amazing part is having an authentic afternoon tea right next to the Kensington Palace. Great view and tasty dessert!

Laurent & David we’re great. Really enjoyed the history & context David provided and we got some awesome during our stroll through the park. The tea experience was also top notch. Well worth the cost and would recommend to anyone visiting London looking for uniquely English activities.

David was wonderful. He was knowledgable and personable at the same time. He knew what he was talking about but he also was relatable and shared his knowledge in an easy, friendly manner. The experiences and pictures he shared made the time spent on the tour more authentic than I had dared hope for.

Great experience. I went to Kensington in my own first to learn about the history then did this tour. I learned so much about history and gardens. It was nice having an expert walk around with us and talk to us about all the little known facts. The tea was excellent, it’s a must see!!
