London Private Tours

London tours, London private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
Cockney accents, afternoon tea, Tower Bridge and Big Ben. Westminster Abbey? Check. Buckingham Palace? Check. But hang on a second - have you actually seen the REAL London? Take a London tour with a local guide and get up close and personal with this dazzling city.

London truly has something for everyone, whether you're a culture hound, a history buff, a diehard shopper or urban adventurer. Let our local guides take you for morning tea at Columbia Road Flower Market, then shop for unique fashion pieces in Spitalfields, where the narrow cobbled alleys of East London effortlessly evoke Victorian times. Walk through the fabled Inns of Court to the banks of the Thames, where your guide will take you for a pint with the after-work crowd. Each day is a new adventure in London.

You can choose from the London tours offered by ToursByLocals, but feel free to suggest alternative places and activities that strike your interest. Your guide wants you to have the ultimate London experience.
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
While the United Kingdom has no laws concerning who can and cannot be a guide, guiding at historical sites and monuments is typically restricted to officially accredited guides.

In England, the Institute of Tourist Guiding trains 'Blue Badge' (National) guides. A second 'Green Badge' certification accredits guides with expertise in specific regions and cities.

In Scotland The Scottish Tourist Guides Association (a similar body ) carries out blue and green badge guide training. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
