DRAGON WALK REVIEWS
“Fun Dragon Walk”
Our small party of three adults joined this friendly guided tour. Hazel was well researched about the fascinating history of dragons in the City of London and further afield. The group wasn't too big like other guided tours, which meant we could all hear our guide and keep together as we walked about.
We liked how Hazel created a relaxed and sociable environment, whilst educating us about the history of dragons and pointing out new places we could visit another time. There is an option to go to the pub afterwards, which is a nice idea if a person has come on their own.
“There Be Dragons!”
Had a fantastic Dragon walk in honour of St George's Day. Very fun and informative. I'm still just getting to know the city and I now know some really interesting anecdotes and history, from The Great Fire to Old Tom. Knowledgeable and friendly guide. Would definitely recommend it and will be joining in on a treasure hunt in the near future.
“Fun and educational London Dragon walk”
Hazel is an excellent guide. Lots of interesting and fun facts about the City of London and its dragons. She is very enthusiastic and happy to answer questions. I really enjoyed all the literary links too.
