I took my doting children on this tour, the are extremely enamored by this silly little bear and I felt it best if they both enjoyed their favorite bear while exploring the vast city they live in. My youngest, 3, struggled to walk the whole journey so I did bring a pram with me to seat her in once she got tired. Luckily I bought the double pram as my second youngest, 5, also got tired quickly. I would have to also add that my 11 year-old got a bit bored as she thinks that she is too old to enjoy this sort of attraction. The kids, and me, did get a bit upset at a few of the sites as it was ones that their late father had taken them to. So it was a bit embarrassing to walk around London with tears streaming down mine and my kiddos faces.

Really appreciated our guide, Owen: asked him to slow down, since we were foreigners: he managed both to be comprehensible to us + not too boring for native speakers, not an easy task...Owen has a good sense of humour + manages to express his ideas about society in a witty + subtle way: it is only a walk about a children's book nevertheless he comes to express himself. It might have be interesting to listen his point of view + share ideas about more topics! Good job, Owen!

The tour itself was great and our tour guide Amber was lovely and extremely knowledgeable however the one thing that let it down was towards the end of the tour we had to wait for a bus the number 23. This bus did not turn up for half an hour! It then impacted on our next stops and the time the tour finished. We knew the tour finished at 12.30 and we booked theatre tickets for 2.30 and thought we’d have 2hrs before the show to have lunch wander round portobello road for a bit before heading over to the strand. As the tour finished around 1pm it was around 10 mins walk to the tube Notting hill to get to our next point Holborn to walk down to the theatre to grab lunch on the way - it just made that time a bit rushed due to the bus delay. I think if you’re going to do tours with bus journeys then either you skip the bus and extend the walking tour , my preference, or you advise people the tour may be delayed if the buses don’t run or turn up as expected! There was no mention of getting a bus on the tour information it was called a walking tour!

Loved this tour hosted by Owen on. Went through lost of hidden nuggets of information both about how the film was shot and where. Thought little venice was gorgeous and definitely somewhere I would like to explore again. It was a very hot day and there was a lot of walking (over 14000 steps) so this is quite a distance, but loved it!

We spent a lovely morning walking around West London on the Paddington tour. Chloe our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable and engaged the few children that came along. Interesting, fun and you’ll definitely get more than your 10,000 steps in!

I thought there was more to it but it involves a lot of walking and they don’t wait for you and they walk too fast it’s not suitable for Disabled People it was absolutely awful they were not very helpful at all I would not recommend going to this

This tour was the first i ever made before. Our tourguide Fiona was dressed in the same clothes as Paddington, this was really cut. And a girl had is own paddington bear with her. So we had a really bear tour. During the tour there were always a lot of informations to the stations we´ve visited. I haven´t seen this movie before but the type of narration of Fiona makes the movie more interesting for me. The time flies really so fast at the tour. And this is exactly what the tour should be. I really enjoyed it and can recommend it if you like bears.
