It’s been almost 2 months since we’ve moved to London and since then, I’ve made it a point to meet fellow travel bloggers who are either based in the city or just passing through. I personally don’t know anybody here in London and I feel like meeting like-minded people would be the best way for me to meet (future) friends. I kind of got tired though of meeting people individually so last week, I organized a tour for London-based Female Travel Bloggers so we could all meet together in one fun event. Having had a great experience with Fun London Tours previously, I contacted them once again and got a group rate for their Liar Liar Tour.
Liar Liar Tour is unlike any of the tours you’ve ever taken. Our tour guide Matt insisted that it’s best if there will be at least 10 people joining the group and when I went on the tour, I realized that he’s correct. The more the merrier as they say and of course, Matt did a good job once again to make the tour interesting and fun for all of us.
At the beginning of the tour, Matt divided our group of 10 into three teams. We were then asked to think of a name for our team and due to the fact that it was totally unexpected, we came up with a very cheesy name that I can’t even write on here. Lol. The other teams were called Sherlock Holmes and True Detectives which I think were both nicely done. :p
During the tour, Matt showed us major tourist attractions without overlooking the smaller details of each places. At each location, Matt will give us three stories – two of which are true and one is false. Our teams will have to guess which one is false. Whichever team gets the correct answer will get a point and whoever wins, will receive the prize of ending the tour with their head held high. Lol.
To be completely honest, I wasn’t expecting the competition between teams and most specially – I wasn’t expecting how competitive we all were. We’ve all taken the competition quite seriously, whenever Matt tells us the three stories – each group will have a short meeting together to discuss which one is false. It kinda look funny how we’re all discussing everything quite intently like our lives depended on it. :p
If there’s one thing that I learned from this tour that is there are so many weird facts hidden behind each attractions you see around London. Most of the time, the crazier the story is the more truth there is to it. Some are just unbelievable but then Matt will show us an evidence to prove that it’s actually true.
Liar Liar Tour is a family-friendly tour which can be enjoyed by adults and kids alike. I do highly recommend it as we all had a great time even if my team lost. :p

It is fun and entertaining to go out with like minded people…And this trips looks fantastic… 🙂
[…] first time I’ve been to the Leadenhall Market was when we passed by it during the Liar Liar Tour which I organized for London-based travel bloggers. When we were told that it’s film setting […]
It seems like you had a great time and this is the type of tour I would love to do when I visit London. Will be bookmarking this for my trip
I love the sound of these fantastic tours, Noemi. My kids would enjoy the competition element too. Thanks so much for introducing me to a more fun way to discover London. A great post for #FarawayFiles
This sounds fantastic- there are such great tours in London but I hadn’t come across these. Definitely need to check them out. #farawayfiles
sounds like a load of fun!:) #farawayfiles
Now that sounds like a kind of tour I might be able to get my picky teens/tweens to do. Sounds fun and entertaining – thanks for sharing and linking up with #FarawayFiles! Cheers from Copenhagen, Erin
Oh I think now I’ve read this that you should be very glad I had hurt myself. I am so competitive, you might have wondered if I was the same person you met a few weeks ago. In all seriousness though, I am sorry I missed it. Sounds fantastic and I will book the family in when it gets a little warmer. Thanks for sharing on #FarawayFiles
Such a fun idea. The tour is def a good idea for people wanting to know more. I love walking tours. I did a food tour recently in Madeira and I met so many people, it was excellent. Love it. Thanks for this
What a good idea! For meeting people AND for a tour idea. I’d love to hear some of the facts you learnt.
Sounds like a great tour. I really wanted to go as well to join you all, but unfortunately I was out of town that day. Hopefully next time we will meet! 🙂
This was such a fun day. Liar Liar was definitely one of the most unique tours I’ve ever been on. Would be great for families or folks traveling in large groups.
Wow, you had a great tour in a great city! I’ve been 3 times in London but still so many places to see!
That’s a great and fun way to get to know people in a new city. I’m headed to London next week, and this looks like an interesting tour.
Not going to lie.. I am dying to know what your team name was!!!
We have done a few walking tours with our kids and they got bored fast.
This is a great idea to keep kids entertained, while learning things.
Will for sure be checking it out.
Is there a different price for kids?
That sounds like so much fun! What a cool way to get to know London. Sounds like you have fun!
This sounds like a lot of fun and is certainly a different way to explore London. It definitely sounds more engaging than a standard walking tour. I imagine this would be such a great way to get kids to interact with their surroundings!
I’m quite used to it now. I went to Dubai without knowing anyone then moved to Doha which is the same thing (except I was already married then) and then now in London. It’s actually fun. :p
You should definitely stay longer next time. 🙂
Ooh, I moved to London a couple of months ago too! I really really wanted to come along the tour and meet everyone so sad that I couldn’t be there in person! It looked like you had so much fun and learned about a lot of history!
I hope to see you on the next one Sophie. 🙂
This looks amazing, I need to go to London!!
You saying that you can’t tell us the team name has only made me want to know it more 🙂 Its lovely that you were able to get a team of bloggers together. It sounds like an interesting tour, not like your normal tour. I will have to look into it next time I am in the South from the North of England.
To be completely honest, I forgot what our team’s name was. LOL.
Fascinating! Memories awaken viewing your pics. Intricate buildings along ‘back alleys’ – narrow twisting streets.
Sounds like great fun, being from London myself this is something that I would quite like to get involved with and also glad to see that you are enjoying London 🙂
I’m arranging another tour in a couple of weeks, would you like to join us next time? 🙂
How fun! And very affordable too.
It looks like you had a great time. I have done loads of city tours but never heard of one being done like this. It certainly sounds an interesting way and probably you are more likely to remember the story behind the place 🙂
It was a great time indeed. 🙂
I’m arranging something again by end of October, hopefully you’d be able to join us. 🙂
That sounded like a fun tour with a twist. The game would also make you more focused on the tour itself and the facts behind the great places and structures. Liar liar tour indeed made a great job conceptualizing the tour with a twist. 🙂
Yes, that was the beauty of it. Everyone was very attentive during the whole tour because we all wanted to win. Lol.
I love the idea of the Liar Liar tour. I’m heading back to London in 2018 but it will be the first time for The Hubs. This tour will definitely be on our list! Great to see a blogger meet up
You should definitely seek this tour out when you’re in London. It’s absolutely fun. 🙂
hahaha Great! I wan’t expecting a game on the London tour. Liar Liar London tours would be a gas! I could see myself getting into it and what a fun way to get people to remember what they actually saw and the history. I mean, most times when I hear stories I think yea i’ll remember that and then forget details. But this sounds like if your actively engaged then better chance to remember.
It’s a very interactive tour and you will definitely remember almost everything that you’ll learn from this tour because it’s almost always ridiculous. Lol.
I’ll admit that when I’ve backpacked solo I’ve gone on city tours just to meet other travelers! I haven’t done a tour of London since I was in elementary school and got my parents to take me on all the Jack the Ripper tours, so maybe it’s about time I tried it again.
I do try out walking tours most of the time BUT only if the place is historical because I don’t want to miss out of interesting stories that only the tour guides can provide. 🙂
This tour sounds amazing! Sounds so interactive… As much as I love doing my walking tours – I wish they were more like this! Definitely need to come back to London and check it out 😀 Thanks for this!
PS. very good team names hahah. Another group should be “Dr. Watson” to rival Sherlock Holmes!
You don’t want to hear our team name. Lol. We could’ve met, too bad that we missed you. Next time then? :p
