What people are saying about Kensington

This was so fun and informative! David was an excellent and knowledgeable guide, and we walked through some lovely parks in addition to seeing the palaces. We walked to St. James Palace through Green Park, walked to Buckingham Palace, and then took a quick taxi to Hyde Park and Kensington Palace, where we had high tea in the restaurant next to the Princess Diana statue, complete with choice of tea, tiny crustless sandwiches, scones with butter and jam, and mini pastries (eclair, chocolate tart and Victoria sponge cake) PLUS a glass of sparkling wine, to end the tour. They were able to accommodate my vegetarian needs just fine. Note that you see the palaces from outside, not inside, which is how you cover so many in a short period of time. It was fun to learn about the history of each palace and surrounding parks and grounds while getting to see some areas of London that I hadn't seen before. Highly recommend!

Doug was an amazing tour guide who knows Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park like the back of his hand. He was also charming and clearly enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the park and gardens. I throughly enjoyed my time with Doug and discussing the history of the area and my interest in the Royal Family. I highly recommend taking this fantastic tour and enjoying the delicious high tea at the end.

Our guide Dough was EXCELLENT…very knowledgeable, easy going and polite. His command of historical landmarks, both past and present was most impressive. Dough was able to answer all our questions and he engaged with each of us because of his warm and friendly manner. I’d rate the tour an A+ because of his expertise.

Doug was a fabulous guide. We enjoyed the chance to walk in the rain and learn a bit about the history of the area. Tea was also a lovely treat!

Chris was a great guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable, easy going, and a pleasure to have as a guide. I highly recommend him.
