About the tour

A bit sinister. A bit salacious. And exceedingly well-tailored. Soho is and always has been a curious place. Join Antony as he explores the rise and fall of Soho, transforming from leafy monastic lands to a bohemian den of iniquity. Learn about the scandals of yesteryear, hidden gardens, sinister histories, and little-known facts of famous places.

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to London with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from London. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

By far Anthony has been the most informative of the guides we have experienced so far. We are new to Virtualtrips and enjoyed most of them but this was one of the better ones and he had so much information at hand. Thank you Anthony.
