Leave the pressure in the office and let a private guide carry the planning burden as they tailor-make your London private tour.

  • Discover the London you’ve always dreamed of with a local private guide
  • Revel in a private tour that’s tailor-made to suit your individual interests
  • Choose between day or half-day tours with flexible departure times
  • Pay-as-you-go attractions and transportation means extra cost control
What to Expect
Before your tour begins, liaise with your guide to explain your interests and enthusiasm 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 vary according to your interests, but you can read a sample full-day itinerary below.

Our tour of London was excellent. Our guide for the day was Stepan. He tailored the day to our desires and made each step of the tour entertaining and informational. He even found us the best little pub for lunch.
