From discovering art nouveau gems to glamorous Victorian gin palaces we enjoy a variety of pub styles and breweries along the way. It's not a prescriptive tour, so you choose & pay for your drinks along the way. We're here to offer recommendations, and you can often "sip before you sup" with a few tasters on request from the bars along the way. This allows you to indulge as much or as little as you desire! Non-drinkers can soak up the history, and wine & gin-lovers are also well catered for. We usually finish up on the edge of Covent Garden perfect for theatre-land, restaurants and of course more pubs including one that claims to be the most haunted in London!

A Secret Tour - Explore Hidden London
London is only truly experienced when you venture off the well-worn tourist track so that you can see, hear and feel the place the same way a local does. Only then will you get close to the true essence, to the true heart, to the very fabric of the place you are in and have an experience like no other. We'll leave the famous main sights to the side and are going to peek behind the scenes of glitzy mainstream London away from the tourist areas. We'll see local communities, walk along an exotic street market and discover urban oddities. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge about London's modern urban history, about its current problems and future developments. My secret London tour will turn you into a proper Londoner for one afternoon. Also, there's a nice break at a market where we can grab some lunch (not included in the price). I am very much looking forward to having you on my London safari. Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London, show you something to make you change your mind. Fabian Other things to note We start at 10.30h in Paddington and finish at 16.30h near Canada Water. Have as little bags/rucksacks with you as possible. We're going to use public transport. THE TOUR MIGHT FINISH 15 MINS LATE IF TRAFFIC IS SLOW.

Those were the days ... for it was in that house that John and Paul wrote I Want To Hold Your Hand and Paul dreamed the tune of Yesterday. And for a grand finale - the legendary Abbey Road studios and crosswalk, where you can pose for a picture just as the Beatles did on their famous album cover. Guided by Richard Porter - who won the 'Beatles Brain of Britain' competition two years running. Other things to note The tour is mainly walking - but we stop every few hundred metres, for me to tell the stories of the Beatles places
Indomitable Women of Marylebone
We leave Bakers Street tube taking the path of the Tyburn subterranean river winding down Marylebone High street and through the streets of Marylebone. Unlike other tours my focus is on the stories of the women who lived here. From the gentrified ladies whose eccentricity paved the way for those who followed to the call girls who brought a government down. We stop midway at a cafe which has been there since 1901 and enjoy the quirkiness of the ambiance for 20 mins before continuing. Walking for 2hrs 30 to 3hrs we finish at Marble Arch and with Oxford Street lights for Christmas it is a beautiful finish to a fascinating area. With laughter and fun and a guided walk that shows off the best of what Marylebone has to offer.

This experience is the only one on AirBnB offering Cinematic Style high end personal portraits in this price range. This is not a simple photowalk. The focus in this experience is to capture moments that will bring out the model within you.

It's Time to Discover Your Charme
IT IS A ONE ON ONE EXPERIENCE My motto is a quote from Pablo Picasso: "Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist."  Following the idea of this quote, my experience, which is completely focused on your characteristics and totally different from the usual personal shopper experience, is divided into two parts.  The first part is dedicated to a personalized analysis with the goal of understanding your body shape, friendly colors, and style.  Instead, the second part is dedicated to a head-to-toe shopping experience, during which we will create your new style, and we will try a little bit to break the usual rules of fashion. As a longtime friend of yours, I will suggest the most suitable clothes, accessories (from hats to shoes, height and model of heels, bags and jewelries), and the best makeup, saving you a lot of money and time and creating a new and more beautiful image of you.  Obviously, you don’t need to buy anything to have this experience with me, but just...discover your charm and have a lot of fun.  Other things to note This experience is not a tour of London’s shops and not a moment focused on shopping.  If you need it, please, check out my other 2 experiences:  - Learn How to Have Your Best Shopping (Experiences/164780)  - A lovely time spent with a friend walking around London (Experiences/226413)

The art of Indian homecooking
Don’t let COVID-19 stop you from travelling to India. Find it right here in my little home in London. So far, I have hosted over 500 guests from all around the world (over 25 countries). I have celebrated birthdays with them, shared beautiful conversations and unforgettable moments with them. It will be a small group, so we will all do the cooking together, like a bunch of friends in an Indian kitchen! INTRODUCTION TO SPICES We will learn about ‘Garam Masala’. And no, it’s not just “curry powder”. It’s the basis of understanding individual spices. I will teach you how to blend them to *your* taste. We will create a blend together! INTRODUCTION TO CURRY A basic (yet full of flavour) curry lesson, and here I will teach you how this basic recipe can turn from a healthy weekday meal into a weekend feast. MAGIC OF THE INDIAN KITCHEN We will learn about making homemade things like yoghurt, or paneer, or ghee (it’s much better/cheaper than buying it off the shelf AND IT IS MAGIC). I will also show you a magic trick of how to make amazing rice. THE FEAST We will feast on what we cook! YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE A HANDOUT OF THE DAY’S LESSONS. No time for note-taking, as you’ll be busy cooking, tasting, eating and talking! Remember, this is all about learning that we Indians do eat Indian food regularly, so it’s obviously not as complicated as you think it is.
Discover London's Canals by Kayak
When you arrive at The Pirate Castle, you'll meet your instructor guide and be given a buoyancy aid to put on. We'll then give a short safety talk and show you the basics on how to use your paddle and control your kayak. You'll get into your boat (we'll help if you're wobbly!) and once everyone in the group's on the water we'll practise some basic paddle strokes before heading off on a gentle tour that weaves along the prettiest stretch of the Regent's Canal towards London Zoo, then back to Camden's famous lock and The Pirate Castle. This experience is 1.5 hours long (including kitting up/briefings). All tours depart from/return to The Pirate Castle. The pace and distance travelled will vary for each tour as your instructor guide needs to keep all members of the group together for safety. Novices and more experienced paddlers welcome! Our kayaks are suitable for weights up to 110Kg. Canoes are available for paddlers up to 300Kg or two people wishing to paddle together. Please wear something comfy for kayaking that you don't mind getting splashed. You must also need wear suitable footwear (old trainers or securely fitting sandals). NO SWIMWEAR, FLIP-FLOPS or CROCS! Kayaking is a watersport, so we'll go ahead even if it's raining. We only cancel tours in the event of thunder and lightning due to potential risks, in which case we'll discuss available options.
The Vegan Taxidermist
Two English classics come together in this workshop and teatime with London’s leading taxidermist, Suzette Field. You’ll learn the art and science of preparing, preserving, and mounting—all the basics of taxidermy. Then, you’ll try it yourself (don’t worry, all the subjects have been ethically sourced—reptile food, pest control or roadkill). Choose to leave your handiwork au naturel or dress it up to create a souvenir worthy of a prime spot on your mantlepiece. Students will have a choice between mouse, rat, guinea pig or mole. COVID-19 UPDATE - Classes are now running and are Covid-19 secure. They are now limited to 2 individuals or 2 groups of people from shared households in order to remain Covid-19 secure. Lunch will also no longer be included until we feel it is safe to do so. Other things to note If you live outside the UK, you'll still be able to take your taxidermy creation home with you. We'll provide you with a certificate to show to customs, or mail your souvenir to your home address.

Explore Harry Potter's London Tour
Join me as we venture into the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter in London! On this walking tour of London's streets we will watch clips from the movies while I regale you with behind-the-scenes stories of those locations and how they were used in the film series. Our first stop will be the entrance to Diagon Alley, before we pop down to see the Ministry of Magic, and find out which Leaky Cauldron has the best tacos, as well as others I don't want to spoil here. I will also share some of the strangest, funniest non-HP facts I've learned about London along the way. We will finish at Borough Market, London's top street food destination, with King's Cross just a separate Tube ride away. PLEASE be aware the tour is offered in English only, and it is largely story-based, so a better-than-basic conversational grasp of English is essential. While witches and wizards of all ages are welcome, due to the amount of walking and the content, I more recommend it for ages 11+. Strictly one person per slot. No exceptions. Step-free route for wheelchairs available This London street walking tour is not affiliated with the WB Studio Tour at Watford. Other things to note Every person (over 11yo) will need an Oyster card or contactless payment method with at least £2.40.
