A two-day tour to really get under the skin of amazing London


Do you want to really experience London, with someone who loves it? Take in the must-sees and then go deeper and really see the city? This two day tour will show you so many sides of London you'll really know it by the time we part.

On Day One - we'll see the key sights as we go East-West from Westminster to St Paul's (exteriors only) - or vice versa, depending on where you're located. Then we'll go the hip part of east London to see its buzzing art vibe, boutique shops and street food scene. Lunch will be at one of the street food places that are so popular.

On Day Two - experience one of London's great markets in the morning (days vary, we can discuss). Lunch will be at one of the food stalls - you can eat the world here in London.

Later you can choose a pub tour, art museum visit, trip to Royal/naval Greenwich & the Prime Meridian, offbeat London, or even suggest your own. By the end you'll have eaten, drunk and seen London - in depth.

Add on: go on the underground postal train or climb Tower Bridge?

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: We can meet at your hotel, only bear in mind that travelling to the key locations will eat a half hour into the tour. But you can choose.

End location: We'll end close to a subway station so you can get home easily.

Duration: 2 days

Two days, running from 10am to 4pm

Transportation

We have an amazing public transportation system that's often quicker than travelling by car - and much much cheaper. Travel like a real Londoner!

Vehicles can be sourced for part/all of the tour, but please note they add a significant amount to the price.

What’s Included

My guiding services: the insight and local knowledge that comes from more than a decade living, working and exploring in these places combined with 6+ years experience of working with Tours By Locals to give visitors a great time. Plus the enthusiasm of a real Londoner who loves their city and makes the most of it.

Two lunches are also included (up to £10 p/p enough to enjoy the markets or street food scene or a pub lunch).

Estimated Local Cash Needed

6 £ - You might need an Oyster card (£5 deposit p/p) or a bottle of water (£1). Many attractions are free to see from the outside, as are many of our finest museums. If we spot somewhere you'd like to pay to look into, you can do that later - happy in the knowledge you've already had a good scout about.

What’s Extra

Drinks if you choose to take the pub tour option.
The tour does not include any entry fees (you may come back later on your own time and linger if there's somewhere you particularly want to go into) but most of these sights are best appreciated from the outside and I want to show you as much as possible on the tour.

Restrictions

I am not a driver; we have a wonderful - and comprehensive - public transport system to enjoy here.

I am not a Blue Badge guide but have 12 years experience and four continents under my guiding belt.
