What to Expect
Discover London like a local on a fully customized and personal tour. Benefit from the knowledge of a choice of guides with a wide range of interests and experiences. They can cater for any kind of private group (including groups with children) and range from recent graduates to the retired, designers, musicians and professionals.

Each tour can be personalized to your interests, but the following are examples of what a central London itinerary might look like:

Full-Day:

10:00: Meet your local host at your accommodation or wherever is convenient for you.

11:00: Explore Borough Market’s huge selection of gastronomic delights. Discover superb food and drinks to taste - especially the coffee!

12.30: Take a short walk to the South Bank to experience the finest riverside walk in central London. Pass by, or visit, Shakespeare’s Globe Theater and the Tate Modern art gallery. Walk across the photogenic Millennium Bridge and take some pictures of St. Paul’s Cathedral on the other side of the bridge.

14:00: Stroll along Fleet Street, former historic home of the English press but now home to the legal profession. Arrange to watch a case in the Royal Courts of Justice argued by barristers (lawyers) who still wear their famous white wigs. If this doesn’t appeal, see the finely crafted objets d’art of the Silver Vaults in an underground vault.

15:00: Pause for a picnic in the calm of Lincoln’s Inn Fields or, if the weather is not good enough, try the Field’s Bar and Kitchen for a delicious, casual lunch.

16:00: Move on to Covent Garden and the quirky streets and squares around it. Watch the street entertainers and see shoppers hard at work!

17:00: Enjoy a quick coffee with your local host and get recommendations on places to go and the best restaurants to suit your budget.

17.30: Say goodbye to your local host in the most convenient spot for you.

Half-Day:

10:00: Meet your local host at your accommodation or wherever is convenient for you.

10:30: Head to Chinatown and into Soho to experience an intoxicating mix of quirky shops, cafes and some of the best nightlife in town. Discover the large number of galleries and world-class shopping in the diverse neighborhood.

12:00: Stop for quick lunch or snack at one of Soho's best cafés. While you are there, ask your host to jot down some recommendations of their favorite London restaurants, places to see, events of the week, theater shows or whatever takes your fancy!
 
12.30: Walk over to Covent Garden and explore the quirky streets and squares. Watch the street entertainers and shoppers rush from store to store!
