Oliver Twist walkingtour reviews:

"Absolutely fascinating walk. Makes you see this part of London very differently. Having a reread of Oliver Twist now. Hazel is a fabulous guide and I would highly recommend!"

"We have done a few walks with Hazel now and each time she has us enthralled with her interesting stories of London. A well researched walk and will want you to read/reread Charles Dickens." Linda

"Thank you Hazel for a really fun and informative walk. My brother (slightly reluctant at first I must admit, but even he was won over..!) and I had a fab time. You are a great guide to the history of London and I am looking forward to attending my next walk with you!"  Louise, Chelsea

"Excellent way to see where Oliver and the Artful Dodger walked on Oliver's entry to the capital. I was particularly pleased to see the 'Three Cripples' pub. ” Ian, Greenwich

"Fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable. Hazel was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide." Mark WIlliams

"This was another fascinating walk from Hazel on a blustery, wet Easter Sunday. She took us on a tour of the places mentioned in Oliver Twist, bringing it all to life with her descriptions of the sights, sounds & smells of Victorian London and quoting passages from the book. Highly recommended." Christine Bleathman

"Excellent walk - retrace the steps of Oscar and the Artful Dodger. Hazel is very knowledgeable and brings the story to life - great to get a sense of the social history too." Tracy Sutton

"Fascinating walk with knowledgeable and friendly guide. Offers an insight into life in the area in the 1830's - at times it's pretty gruesome stuff!" Richard Taylor

"A great walk, so enjoyable and interesting and found out a lot of interesting facts afterwards. I recommend Hazel’s walking tours." Annabel J

"Hazel is informative and fun. We followed the route of Oliver and the Artful Dodger between Angel and Faringdon learning about Sadler's Wells and Grimaldi along the way." Saskia Hallam

"An extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who educated and entertained us on a cold but bright Sunday. Our only criticism is that Hazel said the tour would be 90 minutes yet it lasted 2 hours, which in the conditions was not a bonus." David Dunn

"This was a great little walk through Oliver Twist's world. Highly recommend it but better on a warmer day." Frank Kelcz

"This walk was great. On a cold afternoon Hazel transported us back to Victorian London, bringing the streets and buildings to life. It was fascinating, very informative and also friendly, most of the group ended up in the pub afterwards for a drink or lunch. I really recommend it and will.look out for Hazel's walks again." Julie McHugh

"We have done a few walks with Hazel now and each time she has us enthralled with her interesting stories of London. A well researched walk and will want you to read/reread Charles Dickens." Linda Winder

"Fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable. Hazel was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide." Mark Williams

"An insightful tour of rediscovery, which through the words of Dickens himself retraces the steps of Oliver and the Artful Dodger through the sights, sounds and smells of London in 1837 as they make for Fagan's den. (P.s. I would write a review on Trip Advisor but they say I cannot post for 90 days since my last review of the Victorian Christmas tour. I'll try later on!)" Helen Morgan

"A very cheerful Hazel led our walk reciting excerpts from Oliver Twist on a very chilly Saturday afternoon. Little exists of Oliver Twists London but Hazel was full of knowledge in recreating this period. A jolly jaunt ending up in the pub. Lots of her regulars on the walk is a great recommendation."
