An amazing private tour of London's top attractions

As a London Blue Badge guide I am uniquely qualified to guide you on private tours of historic London landmarks.

This tour features an in-depth tour of two of London's most famous buildings; The Tower of London featuring a viewing of the stunning Crown Jewels, and St Paul's Cathedral, and with the added fun of a River Thames Cruise to see the wonderful sights along the banks of the river, and a historic bus ride through the City of London.

A great day in London to remember!


A River Thames cruise from Westminster Pier to the Tower of London or from the Tower to Westminster depending on what time of day we take the tour - about 30 minutes by boat.

My private guided in-depth tour of the Tower of London.

A bus ride (sometimes possible to take the old Routemaster bus) through the City of London to St Paul's Cathedral.

Lots of history, stories, sights and background context information about London and it's history along the way.

A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I took the tour with our 3 sons and their partners (all in their 20's). Vivien took us on a tour of St. Paul's and the Tower of London. We walked between the 2 venues and she gave us a great history of the area. We also had a fun lunch at Nicholson's Sausage and Chop House. Vivien was extremely knowledgeable and personable and good at adapting to her audience. . We were disappointed the River Cruise didn't work out but given the weather and time constraints, it wasn't doable.
