Overview

Why waste time cooped up in the airport when you can venture into the streets of London for a personalized adventure in the city with one of our hosts. Use your layover gap in the best way possible and go discover some of the city’s most popular attractions with a local host. Tailored to fit your time, budget and interests, you could squeeze in some last-minute sightseeing. Take in the wonders of Westminster, the London Eye and Trafalgar Square, or explore markets, unique boutiques and restaurants.

Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded local host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

I would love to write a glowing review but I simply can't. That is because our tour did not happen. Upon arriving in London for our layover tour we were informed that our guide was sick and a refund would be issued. No contingency plan or second option. I'm appreciative for the refund but would have rather seen a bit of the city we planned a 14hr layover to see.

Our private tour guides was great. She was knowledgeable about London and provided us a great experience for the short term we had in London.

The tour guide canceled the day of and then didn’t request a refund for me. I’m still getting emails as if the trip happened. Be wary of this tour because it’s very sketchy. Book anything through PayPal because they will lookout for Fraudulent sellers. Stay away from this company because they have poor communication.

The best way to spend my layover in London! Becky was great and had a plan for us to see everything. Word to the wise though...bring your walking shoes as we walked 5 miles. It was totally worth it! Thanks Becky!
