London Full Day Private Guided Tour

A full day in London gives groups an opportunity to explore the most important parts of Central London, and to see all of the most popular sites. I will be able to provide you with an excellent introduction to this great city. I can also make suggestions about how you can organize the rest of your time in London, and offer advice about what you should try to include. Tours can be as relaxed or as informative as you would like.


We will be able to discuss this on the day. If you do not have any have specific ideas about what you would like to see, I can make suggestions. Typically we would explore the City of Westminster, the City of London and West London. This would include: Buckingham Palace, The Changing of the Guard (not everyday), The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, The London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral, London Bridge, The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, The Millenium Bridge, The Globe Theatre, the Tate Modern. We could also include some of the following: Harrods, Abbey Road, Kensington Palace, markets (Saturday mornings), Apsley House and The British Museum.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: We can meet anywhere in Central London.
We can also arrange to meet outside London, but there will be an additional charge for this. This is something we can agree in advance.

End location: We can end tours anywhere in Central London.We can also arrange to end our tour outside London, but there will be an additional charge for this. This is something we can agree in advance.

Duration: 8 hours


Mercedes Viano. Up to seven passengers. Spacious, air conditioned, spotless.

What’s Included

You will have exclusive access to a friendly, fun and informative Blue Badge guide. You will be transported in a very well presented and fully air conditioned Mercedes Viano. All parking costs will be paid by your guide.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

50 GBP - Each member of the group should expect to spend about £50. But this spends on what we choose to visit together, and what you have for lunch. Most groups pay to visit Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. But there is a huge amount in London we can see without paying any entrance fees.

What’s Extra

Entrance fees, lunch, coffee.


Unfortunately I can only accept bookings more than two weeks in advance.

A Recent Review of this tour

Marcus picked us up at our hotel the day we arrived after a long flight. The tour in his very comfortable vehicle was a perfect beginning for a wonderful trip. He drove 7 of us all over London so we could get our bearings for our 4-day stay. He is very knowledgeable and friendly and knows just where to stop when we need a break. Darkness comes so quickly in late December, but he took advantage of that and made sure we saw the best Christmas lights. We were lucky to find him.
