Private Tour Exploring London's Highlights & Back Streets (5 hours)


Organized and customized: The backbone of the tour is London's Highlights. The rest of the tour is planned around what you'd like to see and where you'd like to go. More Highlights + a bit of Rock'n Roll? No problem. More Kings & Queens? Easy. OR you can leave all of the planning to me. We decide everything on the day as we tour.

+ (depending on time and access): Changing of the Guard Ceremony + a fantastic street food market, ancient Churches, Roman remains, and a gallery specializing in London's art old and new.

Everywhere we go is in the open, or if inside is free of charge. London is BIG and although we can't possibly do 'everything' in one tour, we'll select the best of London for you to enjoy.

This is not a drive-by tour, walking is involved. There are plenty of stops and opps for photos.

Suitable for first time or returning visitors.

NB. Tour visits but doesn't go into paid attractions.

Itinerary

The back bone of the London Highlights+ Tour is:

London Highlights: Buckingham Palace, Parliament/Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St James's Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, Shakespeare's Globe.

I can also incorporate other London tour themes:

Changing of the Guard
Rock'n Roll
Kings & Queens
Horror
Dickens & Shakespeare
Harry Potter

We work into our tour what you'd like to focus on, from the above themes. Please tell me in advance, or on the day, what your preferences are.

If we do go into any attractions, I select the free ones that are easy to work into our schedule.

The weather will partly decide how the day goes, as does your mobility.
