Personalised Private Tour with a Blue Badge Guide - ideal for couples, families and small groups
You arrive in London - it's your first visit - What to see? In what order? How to get there? How to maximise your day? Let me take you on a door-to-door private tour!
Using a combination of transport to suit you, whether you like walking, want to take the Tube and red double decker buses and a boat trip along the River Thames - or you prefer a chauffeured car - 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.
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 line for all!).
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.
I'll meet you at your hotel or apartment at 9. 00am. A typical itinerary includes visiting inside Westminster Abbey (via the VIP group entrance), and a walking tour to see the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square, as well as the Guard Change at Buckingham Palace and the mounted Horse Guards (2019 Buckingham Palace Guard Change Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun). We will also visit the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels (timing our visit to minimise any wait in line), with the option of St Paul's Cathedral at the end of the day.
We will stop for lunch at an old London pub or have a quick bite at one of the many cafes and sandwich places. We can finish the tour at 5. 00pm either back at your hotel or somewhere central such as Covent Garden if you want to enjoy an evening in a great location for shops, pubs and restaurants.
(On Sundays we cannot visit inside Westminster Abbey or St Paul's apart from attending a choral service).

We had a terrific introduction to London with Amanda. She is very knowledgeable, accommodating and full of interesting stories. A wonderful tour to get to know the city.
