What to Expect
To ensure your London tour is tailored to you, fill out a short questionnaire after booking to indicate which parts of the city you wish to explore. Your private tour then begins with pickup from the location of your choice at your preselected time. Receive your guide’s undivided attention throughout the tour. Public transportation between sites is included. In addition to checking off your personal "must-sees," your guide provides suggestions according to your interests. If you’re interested in architecture, your guide takes you to see classic and contemporary buildings; history enthusiasts can visit some of London’s oldest monuments and observe the Changing of the Guard, and those interested in politics can explore Westminster with its famous houses of Parliament. Your tour concludes at the location of your choice.
