Greenwich Royal Tours offers unique small group tours ( normally max of 6 pax ) that are both fun and informative. Virtually a private tour and very often our guides will be on tour with just one couple. We started doing our guided walking tours in...more

We had a great time with our tour guide Muhsin Mustafa. His plan to start with the Royal Observatory was wise, following the rest of the sightseeing. He was a good storyteller, we learned a lot about Greenwich.
Stephen, our guide for this walking tour, took us from the grand (Kensington Palace gardens, lake, and Victorian greenhouses) to the arcane but very interesting (the Physic apothecary garden), with an excellent lunch/tea included. Best of course if the gardens are in bloom and the...More
My wife and I booked this tour and our guide was Graham. This tour was highly rated and rightfully so. We learned interesting facts about Greenwich, visited various sites and had an excellent lunch as well. But what made this tour special was Graham himself....More
Hands down the best food tour we have done. Victoria was our guide and she is fabulous! Her passion for food and flavor came through at every stop. The restaurants and menu items were superb. Her knowledge in the English customs and traditions helped us...More
This was one of my best tour experiences of all time. Our guide, Stephen, was a delight. He reminded me of Dr. Who, in the best possible way, as he whizzed us around London revealing hidden botanical wonders , many 'hidden in plain view'.
Four of my travel friends and I were in London before a cruise was to leave and so I booked this great opportunity to see gardens in London. We started at the steps of St. Martin in the Field's Church and from there explored the...More
Tom and I had a fabulous full day tour of Greenwich with Graham including a delicious lunch at a local pub overlooking the Thames. We were so glad we booked the full day tour as there was so much to see. We walked aboard the...More
First of all let me start with the good...Stephen our guide. He was very personable, informative and did a great job with what he had to work with on the tour. But make no mistake, this is 1) a long walking tour, 2) more of...More
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.

1230, We met Graham by the Drake statue outside the information centre, however you can expect an email confirming the meeting place which may be different on the day. The length of the tour is what it says on the box... More
1230, We met Graham by the Drake statue outside the information centre, however you can expect an email confirming the meeting place which may be different on the day. The length of the tour is what it says on the box, namely a highlight tour. Please refer to the current description. We visited Greenwich Observatory (a fairly steep climb towards the end), the Maritime Museum, Cutty Sark, and the Painted Hall in the former Greenwich Royal Naval College (Greenwich University).
