With around 2,000 years of history, four separate UNESCO World Heritage sites, and countless museums and historic buildings, London travel planning can be daunting. Leave the pressure in the office and let a private guide carry the planning burden as they tailor-make your London private tour. Choose between day and half-day tours and pick a departure time that suits your schedule.
What to Expect
Before your tour begins, liaise with your guide to explain your interests and enthusiasms so that they can tailor-make a tour that suits your needs. That might include off-the-path locations like East End markets and secret Soho restaurants, or big-ticket attractions like the Tower of London and Big Ben. You might choose to travel by London’s efficient public transport or relax with the comfort of a private car: your guide can advise on pricing for this and attractions.
Once your tour has been planned, greet your guide at your central London hotel—or your choice of central London location—and embark on a 100% customized private tour, with every sight explained in depth by a passionate local expert. Tours will vary according to your interests, but you can read a sample full-day itinerary below.
