  • What You Can Expect

    Your day in London is totally customizable and the itinerary for your half- or full-day tour will be tailored to suit your needs and interests. Before your tour, your private guide will contact you to discuss the things you want to see, so that your logistics can be arranged in advance.

    On the day of your tour, meet your guide at your hotel or preferred central location, then set off by whatever means of transport is required. Transport, meals and entrance fees are payable at your own expense.

    Perhaps visit some of the city must-sees like Tower of London or the ever-inspiring Big Ben – London’s architectural icon — or head to the Shard for sweeping panoramic views over London. Alternatively, focus on the more offbeat London neighborhoods such as Soho, Camden Town or Brick Lane, and ask your guide to introduce you to the spots that the tourist maps miss.

    Itinerary

    Sample Itinerary:
    10am: Meet your private guide at your hotel or outside Buckingham Palace and start your tour by posing for photos by the gates. After hearing the history of the historical royal landmark, stroll to nearby St James’ Palace and see the Changing of the Guard ceremony that takes place daily.

    11:15am: Stroll through St James’ Park with your guide and admire the neatly manicured lawns and flowerbeds that surround the central lake. As you walk, take the time to ask as many questions as you like about London and its landmarks. The beauty of having a private guide is that any commentary is tailored to your interests.

    11:35am: Exit St James’ Park near a cluster of top London attractions, so have your camera ready to capture the sights! Walk past the Houses of Parliament, pose for photos against the backdrop of Big Ben, learn about the royal wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton outside Westminster Abbey, and then gaze over the Thames River to see the London Eye.

    12:15pm: Head to the visitor hotspots of Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden, where street performers are commonplace and cafes spill out onto the streets. Soak up the buzz and ask your guide to recommend Covent Garden market stalls to visit or quirky independent shops to discover.

    12:45pm: Take an insider tip from your guide for the best place to eat lunch, and dine at your leisure in the country’s capital.

    2:15pm: Meet back up with your guide and head south of the river by walking across Millennium Bridge, one of filming locations used in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Head inside Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre at Bankside to learn about the famous English playwright and his time writing for the masses in London.

    3pm: Visit St Paul’s Cathedral where highlights include the Dean’s Staircase, the Whispering Gallery and Crypt. Head up the internal stairs to the Whispering Gallery and gaze down at the ornate nave below while learning about the building’s architecture from your guide.

    3:45pm: Rest your legs and take a taxi to the Tower of London, the formidable 11th-century tower that was built to act as a fortress, palace and prison. See the famous Beefeater guards with their black ravens, marvel at the Crown Jewels, and pose for photos by the famous White Tower.

    5pm: Finish your tour by strolling over London Bridge to see Tower Bridge and the Shard — the tallest building in Western Europe. Before parting ways, receive some final insider tips on making the most of your time in London, and perhaps ask your guide to make a dinner reservation for you at a top London restaurant.

Great day touring London!! We met our guide Davey in our hotel lobby and started our tour right outside the hotel in the Tower Section of London. Davey was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day. He customized the tour to what we wanted to see and we even had a great lunch at a pub. We saw so much of London that we wouldn't have seen or known the story behind if we had seen it. I recommend this tour to anyone that wants to get the most out of the town they are visiting.

Davey gave us the perfect day tour - all day to be exact. He was very personable, knowledgeable and took us to parts of London that we would have never found on our own. And since we had a couple of special places we wanted to see, he was more than happy to take us to those points of interest. Davey also showed us how to ride the Underground and buses in the most efficient manner. We had a fantastic day and absolutely our most favorite day in London. I highly recommend the tour and ask for Davey.

We had a great time with Davey our guide who met us at Westminster and walked us all the way from Buckingham palace via Piccadilly Circus, through 7 dials with a stop for lunch which is seemed quite keen to do and we enjoyed the good quality pizza joint he recommended, over the Thames, via the Globe to local market. He was an appropriate pick for the make-up of our party.
