Save 20% on Context Travel’s London Walking Tours

Wendy Perrin | May 14, 2015

London is one of this summer’s ten most popular travel destinations, according to a recent TripAdvisor study. It’s also the most expensive of those destinations. In fact, of 25 European cities whose costs TripAdvisor compares in another recent study, London is pricier than all except Zurich. The average cost for the bare bones of a week-long trip to London this summer is $4,000 per person.

So it’s welcome news that my favorite travel specialist for cultural city tours, Paul Bennett of Context Travel, has come out with a special offer of 20% off Context’s small-group insider London tours, which leave you with a much deeper understanding of the city’s role in world history and culture. There are dozens of walks and excursions to choose from, including an East End Sunday Market walk, exclusive entry into contemporary artists’ studios, and a boat ride along the River Thames to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. The discount is available through Monday, May 18, for tours that take place through the end of the year.

Not only is Context Travel on my WOW List, but its London tours have also received TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. Make sure Paul knows you’re a WendyPerrin.com traveler (and ensure you get my trip-monitoring service) by reaching out to him via this trip-request form. And blow a kiss to Bloomsbury for me!

    Context does offer excellent small-group tours and we’ve taken quite a few in Paris, Rome, Naples and Athens. However in London, the best tours are those offered by London Walks (http://www.walks.com). London Walks has been around for nearly 50 years and most of its walking tours are led by remarkably well-informed actors, who combine a deep knowledge of particular areas and themes in London with the ability to entertain. Yes, London Walks tour groups are usually bigger (sometimes much bigger) than Context groups. But they are always, always enlightening and fun. Best of all, London Walks charges only £10 a head, and there is no pre-booking. That means you can skip a tour without penalty if the rain is pelting down or your feet hurt.
