A Christmas Carol Tour Reviews

“We went on this 1.5 hour walk as part of our work department Christmas outing. Hazel was a fun and engaging tour guide, and took us around several places linked to Dickens (all within the City of London). Although I lived in East London for three years, most of the locations were completely new to me and the facts were fascinating. The link in to Christmas made this a perfect tour for this time of year. Would highly recommend as a team/group activity! Dress warmly though if it’s in the winter. Thanks Hazel!”
“Hazel was a fantastic tour guide – she was extremely knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm! She clearly loves London and we all learnt a lot!”
“Don’t miss this. Superb.”
“This was purchased as a gift. Both recipients said they were very happy and impressed with Hazel and with the tour. I’m pleased she did such a good job and wish I had gone too.”
“Really fun and interesting and clear thanks”
“A very enjoyable guided walk. Hazel is clearly passionate about history and made our walk around the area in which Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is set, come alive. The mint humbug was an enjoyable touch!”
