Private Chauffeured Day Tour with a Blue Badge Guide


You arrive in London - it's your first visit - What to see? In what order? How to get there? How to maximise your day?

Travelling in a private chauffeured car we will have maximum flexibility to pass all the key sights and be dropped-off and picked-up by our driver whenever and wherever suits us.

As a qualified Blue Blue Badge Private Tourist Guide I am allowed to guide you inside Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London for no extra cost over the normal entry charge, also saving time standing in the public entry line (apart from Crown Jewels where there is 1 queue for all!).

I will show you my favourite highlights of Royal Westminster and the City of London or 'Square Mile' during a customised, completely flexible and 'at your own pace' private tour.

Please see the itinerary for a suggested highlights tour or if you let me have your own 'must see' list I'll plan the best tour for you on the day!

Itinerary

A typical itinerary includes visiting Westminster Abbey and seeing the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square, as well as the Guard Change at Buckingham or St James' Palace and mounted Horse Guards at Horse Guards Parade or riding along the Mall. (2017 Buckingham Palace Guard Change Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun; Then June 18 to end July every day - apart from in the rain. )

We can take an optional (approx 10GBP per head payable to the boat company on the day) River Boat along the Thames to The Tower of London, passing riverside highlights such as the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, St Paul's Cathedral, The Shard and Tower Bridge.

Following a tour of the Tower of London (NB there can be a long line for the Crown Jewels) we will go on to St Paul's Cathedral at the end of the afternoon before heading back to your hotel.

We will have lunch at an old London pub or a quick bite at one of the many cafes and sandwich places.

(Sundays we cannot go inside Westminster Abbey or St Paul's)
