Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • This tour involves a moderate amount of walking please wear comfortable shoes
  • Wheelchair accessible
  • Stroller accessible
  • Service animals allowed
  • Near public transportation
  • Transportation is wheelchair accessible
  • Surfaces are wheelchair accessible
  • Most travellers can participate
  • Generally the sights are relatively quiet and we always practice social distancing but at some locations it is possible small sections may have small crowds so we will do our best to avoid them though social distancing is generally not a problem. All of our tours are private so it is just you/your family and your guide.  To make it easier and safer for all concerned we would suggest starting this tour a little later than the usual time, perhaps around 10.30-11am which allows us all to miss rush-hour. We are happy to still come to your hotel to meet you but for the moment we would suggest meeting us at the tour starting point.  This allows you to arrive by a taxi or uber rather than public transport. Please feel free to wear masks throughout or at times during the tour.  Your guide will also have a mask with them.
  • This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate

Our tour guide Stephen showed up early to pick us up at our hotel and we all got along right away. The tour was amazing and he made sure that we saw everything and went above and beyond our expectations. We even ran across St James park so he could make sure we saw the Queens

Hi Andrea and Mike, Thanks so much for your great review. I still remember us running across the park to get to the parade in. That was such a great day and it was so nice to meet you both. It’s funny how we joked that the photo I took of you both in front of Tower Bridge might be on your Christmas card this year and it’s turned out that is what is happening. Hope to see you again one day! Stephen

Best tour by far. We toured privately on our on, contacted 3 hour and was assigned Kevin. Our appreciation for this country expanded immediately. Very knowledgeable at different spots throughout the township. Walking with the 'Professor' was the highlight of our trip to Europe.

'Professor' Kevin was so happy to read your review. We're both glad that you enjoyed your tour. It's incredible how many times we get told that our tours are the highlight of a stay in London, Britain or even the whole of Europe. We get some pretty nice tourists too though :-) Thanks for your review.

We very much enjoyed our London walking tour with Stephen. He was prompt, knowledgeable, full of historical and present day insights. He met us at our hotel and we walked at our pace, stopping from time to time to take in the beautiful sights. Highly recommend doing this
