This tour offers an excellent overview of London's most important buildings. We will spend half a day visiting major sites of East London, Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, heart of the financial city, Roman ruins, Shakespeare Globe, Tower Bridge. . . .

The other half of the day we will visit the most iconic sites of the City of Westminster, Trafalgar, Picadilly, Soho, Mayfair, Knightsbridge, Notting Hill, Kensington etc. . .

We will also see Buckingham Palace, BBC Headquarters and much more.

Traveling by our private chauffeured London taxi allows us to get on and off wherever you like for photo opportunities and short museum visits and amazing view points.


Depending on where your hotel is situated, we will discover first that part of London, and make sure we visit both City of London ( with view on the Docklands) and in the afternoon we will visit central and West London. We will see all major sites including Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London, the heart of the financial district, Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square and lots of hidden gems in London and cross bridges over the Thames.

Of course we can adapt this tour to your personal interest and stop at museums, good viewpoints or concentrate on certain monuments or gardens or churches. . . . It is your call and private tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Patricia was a great tour guide. Do to traffic we started a little late but she made up for it with a few out of the way request we had to stop by the Wimbledon tennis center and get us in the gift shop on a moments notice. We carried on to the center of London and made it to all the attractions we had listed with Patricia by email. Her knowledge of the city and giving directions to the drive saved loads of time and we returned to South Hampton to meet our ship before sailing. Great job for a group of 8.
