A personalised day tour of London with a Private Guide to discover more and explore off the beaten track
You are familiar with London's highlights and now want to explore further but where do you start? How can you find those tucked away places? Where should you go for those different view points?
Using a combination of transport to suit you, whether you like walking, want to take the Tube or bus - with the option of a boat - leisurely or high speed - along the River Thames, (or a private chauffeured car as an optional extra) I can show you some of my off-the-beaten-track favourites during a customised, completely flexible and 'at your own pace' private tour.
If you missed going inside any of the main sites on a previous trip, 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 at no extra cost over the normal entry charge and without having to stand in the public entry line. I can also take you on highlights tours of the British Museum, National Gallery and other galleries and museums
Depending on what you have seen on previous trips to London (although we can certainly include revisiting some of the highlights - with you own private guide this time!) I will plan a bespoke tour for you including some of my favourites such as:
Royal Greenwich with the Royal Observatory, Painted Hall and National Maritime Museum, Kensington Palace and gardens, the Churchill War Rooms, the Royal Mews, the historic St. James area, the Duke of Wellington's Apsley House at Hyde Park Corner, the Wallace Collection, Tate Britain and the National Portrait Gallery.
During the day we can stop for lunch at an historic pub or a quick bite at one of London's many cafes and sandwich places or explore the 'foodies' Borough Market on the South Bank of the River Thames.

Simply put, Amanda was awesome! There were 5 of us including 3 teenage girls. Amanda really impressed and kept the attention of the girls (and the wife and I). She was very responsive to our needs, did exactly what we wanted to do, and customized our tour on the fly. She went over and above. It was truly a pleasure!
