Frequently Asked Questions
If there is anything you need to know please telephone or email me
Is Hobnob Tours taking bookings during the coronavirus pandemic?
Of course! If you are planning a trip to London from August 2020 onwards, do book a tour to hold the date but only pay for the tour 24 hours before it is due to start. That way, if it is not possible for the tour to go ahead, it is easy to cancel if no payment has been made. Any queries, do e-mail me on
Why book with HobnobTours.London?
I love guiding small groups, sharing the interesting, bizarre, weird and wacky facts about London's historical past. Why don't you find out what others have thought of my tours by checking me out on Trip Advisor.
What language is spoken on Hobnob's tours?
The Queen’s English!
What happens if it rains?
The tour will go ahead whatever the weather - bring waterproofs, sensible shoes and an umbrella and you won’t even notice! Funnily enough, it doesn’t seem to rain very often!
How far do we walk on a tour?
This varies from walk to walk but as a rule of thumb, no more than 2-3 miles.
How do I pay?
By far the easiest, quickest and my preferred way for you to pay is via the 'Buy Now' button on the 'Tour Prices' page of the website using PayPal. Any problems, let me know but it should be straight forward. Alternatively, you can pay by bank transfer - let me know if you want to pay this way and I'll forward my bank details to you. The tour will not be confirmed until I have received payment in full.
Can I rearrange the date?
Yes, no problem. Telephone to rearrange at least one week ahead of the date of the booking.
What is the cancellation policy?
Hobnob does not charge for changes to the date of the booked tour. However, if a tour is cancelled less than 48 hours before the booked tour date, a cancellation charge of 100% of the tour fee is payable.
What if we are running late on the day of the tour?
When you confirm a booking with me, I will give you my mobile number so call me to let me know. I try my best to accommodate delays but whether I can or not will depend on my other commitments on the day.
