I had a great time, there were some super fun and respectful guys. It hurts that the drink goes up very quickly and they may tell you that you have to go out for some air as has happened with some. I had a great time, I arrived late but after some time they answered me and I was able to meet up with the group. What I don't know is how to have the photos, I don't think it will come out well in the photos but I would like to see them. I would repeat the experience in other neighborhoods. Conor is amazing, you can see the good energy, nice and respectful guy. I would like to have the photos from tonight . Thank you very much for the experience. xoxo

What a great way to spend the afternoon in London and a unique hen party experience. Our tour guide Louie was fab and we got to check out places we would never have visited. There was so much cheese to taste and so much to learn.

The tour was entertaining, interesting and the cheese was great. The tour took us to shops that we would never have discovered otherwise. Our guide Jack was personable and easy to understand.

Really the best, incredible evening, the guides were super nice, very welcoming, it's the opportunity to make great encounters!!!

What a wonderful time with excellent friendly staffs❤️❤️❤️
