Definitely do this tour if you love cheese! Our guide, Jack (also known as Monterey Jack) was extremely personable and shared many a cheese pun along the way. We tried 6 types of cheese at 5 different stops and had a glass of Prosecco at the third stop. It was so interesting to try different types of cheese that you can't get elsewhere because they're not exported (at least not to the US). It's hard to pick a favorite because they were all good, but I think mine was the excellent Stilton which was also Winston Churchill's favorite! Bring a bottle of water as you'll want it between tastings. Highly recommend!

This was super fun for Harry Potter nerds such as myself! You get to see many of the inspirations for studio-built locations in the movies, such as Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley, and actual filming locations which our guide Sarah showed to us in movie clips along the way. You start out in King's Cross station at Platform 9 3/4 - arrive at least an hour early if you want a photo though, as there was a considerable queue. We took the tube twice, to Leicester Square and to London Bridge, so I got to see some London neighborhoods I hadn't been to before. A very fun afternoon!

Took this tour in soho section of London. Everything was excellent. It was nice that the last place was the best & we were able to stay as long as we wanted.
