Had a wonderful experience with our tour guide Alex. He was a wealth of information on English history. We had a lovely walk through Hyde Park on a beautiful day. We saw Diana's Memorial Garden and sat outside in the Pavilion overlooking the garden. The sandwiches, scones, cakes and tea were delicious. There was no "added luxury drink." I highly recommend this tour. We felt very British afterwards. We also enjoyed the beautiful walk back to the tube. If you have trouble walking this may not be the tour for you, but we loved it!

The tour and history behind what we were seeing was excellent. The actually experience of high tea was amazing, almost made you feel like you were a royal family member.

This was a lovely way to have high tea. It was like going to tea with a friend who really knows the area and can give interesting history and facts about the area. Our guide (Doug) made sure that we were comfortable and that the tea met all our needs. We greatly enjoyed the tour, the tea and the conversation. :)

Okay this tour was good but this one is a tourist trap note with this price tag you ARE NOT getting into Kensington Palace that you will pay for separate you can book this High tea at a much lower price yourself. You walk through the park which is FREE for 45 minutes. You have High tea at The garden at Kensington Palace which is located in front of the Palace not what this read at all.

The walk through the park was informative, guide did her best to take the paths with some shade. The group signed up was 10, so they had two guides and we split into 2 smaller groups. That was a nice touch. The tea & finger sandwiches was a fun experience.

Great tour! We had David as our tour guide and he did a phenomenal job. Really enjoyed walking and hearing history along the way. We weren’t able to do tea at Kensington but the replacement venue was amazing and we were very satisfied.

It seemed like the venue didn’t know our group was coming. There was no table big enough for us and they scrambled to find room for us. Little disappointed
