Our experience was better than we could have imagined. Our driver modified the Christmas lights to include all the famous Harry Potter stops as well as Beatles highlights and Sherlock Holmes. He went above and beyond despite it being Christmas Eve and having his own family at home. We are so grateful!!

London has so many beautiful Christmas light displays and our tour guide, Steve, showed us them all. He also offered to take lots of pictures of us next to the lights. He knew just the right spots to make great shots. This tour was lots of fun! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and he included lots of stops to walk around and really see the lights or take pictures. Our interests were factored into specifically what we saw, which made the tour even more enjoyable. This was my first trip to London, and this tour was unique and the highlight of what we did.

My family and I did this tour “London’s Christmas lights”. It was very beautiful. My grandma can’t walk a long time / distance and as we stayed only 4 days we decided to choose this tour to be plunged into Christma’s magic and at the same time visit London from a side to an other by visiting the main streets and typical location. During the visit we could walked down few seconds wherever we wanted to, for pictures etc. Very nice and unusual way to visit a city. We recommend it.

The tour of holiday lights was a wonderful way to spend my first night in London after a long journey from the States. Andrew was extremely personable, well versed in the history of the neighborhoods, and he went the extra mile to show me London’s fantastic holiday lights. The tour was both festive and cultural!
