The private tour with David was fine. The tea was awful. It was at Harvey Nicols not the palace. Food was stale, it was loud, and not traditional English at all. We were very disappointed.

We had a splendid walk around the park with Doug and ended with delicious tea. Doug was informative and educational. Highly recommend.

Very nice and relaxing atmosphere, impeccable service from the team, starting from meter-d to a waiter. Excellent selection of teas and food. Extremely satisfied, totally worth the experience and expense!

David, our guide was a fabulous guide. He explained the history of Kensington Gardens as we strolled the vast property. We enjoyed our walk about & seeing all the history & grandeur of the Kensington. The we enjoyed a wonderful tea with him, instructing the proper etiquette of afternoon tea in London. It was a great experience & quite fun. My husband & I highly recommend David! Thank you.

A truly spectacular walking tour of Hyde Park leading to Kensington Palace for high tea, without guide from Top Tasting Tours London England. We met at a spot just outside the tube station and walked into the park on a truly beautiful day in London, stopping at the Italian Fountains - which I had never seen! - and through the park past the Peter Pan statue. Stopped to feed the wild parakeets - a real treat! - before making our way towards the palace. The tea was gorgeous, and a lovely selection of afternoon sandwiches and cakes. Our guide, David, was knowledgeable and helpful in relating stories about Britain's past and present, with notes about royalty and traditions. *Highly* recommended!

While we had walked through Kensignton on our own before, our guide Ellen truly brought the park's history and beauty to life for us. We learned so much even in the cold wet weather of London we truly enjoyed ourselves. After walking through the park, we had a lovely afternoon tea, learning how the tradition of High Tea became part of British culture. It is one of my favorite London experiences to date.

My 17 year old daughter and I were so lucky to have been able to take this tour. Our guide David was very knowledgeable and friendly and we learned a lot of British history as well as having a delicious sit down tea. I got the gluten free tea nibbles and I am pretty sure my cakes were just as tasty if not tastier than the regular tea cakes. A++++
