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.

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.
Hidden Pubs of London
Join us for a 3hr historical stumble down the "street of shame". Starting in the shadow of the iconic St.Paul's cathedral, we explore the tiny backstreets and rambling courtyards the ancient City of London is famous for. We follow in the drunken footsteps of literary greats including Dickens, Shakespeare, Pepys & Johnson whilst pausing for a drink in at least 4 of the most historic pubs dating as far back as the 1500's. 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! Other things to note Guests are recommended to be over 18 years of age to enjoy the walk at its best. Anyone lucky enough to look under 25 years of age should bring photo ID. N.B.

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)
Learn How to Have a Timeless Shopping
IT'S A PRIVATE EXPERIENCE   Are you in London only for a few days, and do you desire to have a nice and quick overview of London’s fashion landscape?  This experience will be much more than either a fashion shopping or a simple fashion tour.  Together, we will discover the most beautiful fashion streets, arcades, little corners, and shopping windows for both local and international brands.  Furthermore, we will have several stops at the trendiest shops or malls where we might try to have a hypothetic shopping experience (you don’t need to buy anything, if you don’t desire to make the purchase because I do not work with any stores), but I will suggest for you the best outfits according to my previously carried-out analysis of your friendly colors. Last but not least, bring with you your camera. In fact, while on the tour, we will take nice photos of London’s beautiful hidden corners and/or of your outfits, which you might then post on your social accounts.  How to spend a lovely time discovering London, going shopping , and taking photos and memories. Other things to note: According to your taste, we might spend more time on one of these three aspects: a walking tour, shopping, or photos. Otherwise, we might find a sort of perfect balance among the three. My availability is generally very flexible, so please send me a message if you don't see the date you prefer

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! Other things to note Guests are recommended to be over 18 years of age to enjoy the walk at its best. Anyone lucky enough to look under 25 years of age should bring photo ID. N.B. We have a small number of hosts running these walks so you might be meeting up with Chris, Mark, Wil or Kevin
