Whitehall tour reviews:
"Very interesting tour. The guide was lovely and professional. I think it would be a good tour for someone living in London or tourists that want to discover something more than the usual sightseeing." A
"Great to have attention drawn to things never noticed and to be given the back story. All most interesting." Anon
"This having been my 1st Walking tour having lived here since the 90's, ashamed to say I know London not! Having passed by Whitehall for years to and from work, it was insightful to look a little bit behind the scenes." Amy S
"Hazel's depth of knowledge about London is incredible. This is a really interesting walk!" Julie
"Very interesting and entertaining walk around a beautiful part of London .Hazel is an informative knowledgable and amusing guide" Susan Anderson
"Although I worked right by this area for over 20 years it is amazing what I had missed, Hazel brought it to life with her enthusiastic knowledge and storytelling. A well experienced guide - she knows where to station her group to get give them the best view of any area without causing blocks at busy sites. The tour starts at Westminster Station and finishes near Trafalgar Square lasts about 90 mins covering the beginnings of Whitehall with Henry V111 up to modern day memorials. She also packed us off with ideas for more things to explore in the area once we left the group." Katrina P
"Hazel is knowledgeable and gives a fascinating insight into the history of the area." Pamela Kalman
"We really liked this one as it took us to the places that Londoners tend not to visit very often. Although a cold evening we wrapped up warm and listened to some fascinating historic tales from the welcoming guide. A friendly and fun way to spend 90 minutes, with the added benefits of a healthy stroll and some new learning for our ageing brains!" Sarah & Tony Greaves
"Despite a raw wind the walk was warming as well-known buildings were brought to life with lots of historical facts interspersed with quirky snippets which (hopefully!) will stick in the mind. Hazel is a very welcoming leader, engaging with all her group and keen to make it fun. Highly recommended." Anon
