From $309.95 per group
, Jan 2020
Our experience was better than we could have imagined. Our driver modified the Christmas lights to include all the famous Harry Potter stops as well as Beatles highlights and Sherlock Holmes. He went above and beyond despite it being Christmas Eve and having his own family at home. We are so grateful!!
London has so many beautiful Christmas light displays and our tour guide, Steve, showed us them all. He also offered to take lots of pictures of us next to the lights. He knew just the right spots to make great shots.
This tour was lots of fun! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and he included lots of stops to walk around and really see the lights or take pictures. Our interests were factored into specifically what we saw, which made the tour even more enjoyable.
This was my first trip to London, and this tour was unique and the highlight of what we did.

This was a great walking tour around Covent Gardens that gives you some history about Christmas in London. Our guide, Harley, was great. He was born and raised in London, so in addition to the information from the tour, he also had great insights about what to do and see in and around London. It is about 2 hours walking with a stop midway for mulled wine and fruit mince pie(delicious!!). Our 8 year old also enjoyed the tour,but not sure kids much younger than that would enjoy it or could handle all the walking.
I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Harley. I was a bit amazed at just how many of London's Christmas markets we had a chance to visit without it being an overly tiring walk. Harley also made a point of showing us a few out-of-the-way, quieter spots that can be found in the city, which I really appreciated. I loved the pub we stopped in for our mulled wine and minced pie, both of which were excellent. Add in the discussion of how the Christmas traditions developed over time, and in London specifically, and this was definitely money and time well spent.
England’s capital goes all out for the holidays, and this tour takes you to see the city’s Christmas light displays and markets to get you into the spirit of the season.

Really enjoyed this day trip to Brugge. The lady who was running our trip was was nice and helpful.
We was lucky to not get stuck in traffic either way so the day ran smoothly. We got plenty of time in bruge, think it was between 4-5 hours. There was a main Christmas market in the square and then another slightly smaller one just a few minutes walk away. It's worth a visit and I would book again.
Europe’s atmospheric Christmas markets draw visitors from all over the world during the festive season, but this means it’s also one of the most expensive times to stay on the continent.

London Christmas Lights Walking tour for Kids and Families
From $197.95 (Price varies by group size )
Excellent walking tour
, Dec 2019
This was a terrific walking tour. Denisa was our tour guide, and she was excellent. We toured all the major areas near Picadilly and Trafalger; the lights on the street were wonderful. Since it gets dark around 16:30, you're in good shape to see everything in its glory. Be ready to walk.
On a side note, be careful of some of the street performer types who try to get pictures with you (they sneak in and then ask for 5 pounds afterwards, even if you didn't want one). Tour guide does the best the can to steer clear but sometimes you bump into them (especially if you have a young child) similar to Times Square in NY.
