About
Want to see London's iconic sights with a fun local as your private guide? Then enjoy a dynamic day with one of our amazing guides, tailored to your pace and your interests! Your guide will meet you at your hotel, apartment or central London location (London transport zones 1 & 2). You'll see exterior views of Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey. Watch the famous Guard Change (weather and schedule permitting) and see the Queen's home, Buckingham Palace. Then enjoy lunch at a traditional British pub, or get something to go. (Food is at your own cost.) Travel through the Theatreland on a classic London red bus, then cross the Millennium Bridge for the best view of St Paul's Cathedral, then stroll on the Southbank, past cultural sites like Shakespeare’s Globe, enjoying the stunning views across the river. We can finish the tour at a place that suits you, and we'll make suggestions for the rest of your trip tailored to you.

Charley was the absolute best guide we could have asked for to see London. She came to our hotel had breakfast with us. Explained everything we saw and even waited for us while my wife and I went up in the London Eye. We were lucky and had an afternoon snack in Buckingham Gardens. We could not have asked for anything more.

Charley was a revalation. I could not have asked for a better or more knowledable guide. To be fair, although Charley was always ready with some facinating tidbit or other and was a veritible encliclapdeia of knowledge of the amazing town she lives in, my purposes were of a more practical nature, in that I was in London for a photoshoot for a weathlthy Russian client and I needed a knowledgable location scout. Charley rose to the challenge and excelled in every concivable way, often pointing out angles and suggesting unique shots that I would have struggled to come up with on my own. In short, Charley made the entire event possible and I could not have been nearly so successful for my client without her help. 10 ot of 10 for a truly VIP experience!

Charley's knowledge of her hometown is just amazing and her elocution is so easy on the ears. I love taking her tours with her smile in her voice and love of sharing information that she has accumulated over such a vast area in order to enhance our experience. Thank you so much and I will continue to travel with you virtually in the event that one day it will be in person.

Even we have been to London few years ago, I found Totally Tailored and asked them for a virtual private tour for my wife. Charley is very passionate about London and her knowledge on London's history plus the simple way of narrating it made the virtual tour really great. I strongly recommend to those interested in London and its history even during these times when we can have these tours virtually too.

The pandemic has been super hard on all of so I jumped at the opportunity to see London in a safe, covid regulated and comfortable way. The taxi was clean, spacious and comfortable, the tour guide Luke was well informed, fun and funny and booking the tour through Charley was extremely professional, well organized and took all our needs into account. Charley asked about dietary requirements and Luke catered to our needs. The lights tour was quite a popular one but Totally Tailored new how to get us around the crowds for the best shots. I would highly recommend!!

We booked two days tour for four people. London was very quiet so we felt we had a unique experience
Charley was our leader and she was a font of all knowledge.
Very easy to rebook and change from a cancelled tour during lockdown
Highly recommended and a great weekend! Thanks to Charlie and the team

I did one of the first tours with Charley post lockdown and it was great. me and my partner had to change our date and she was super accomodating and easy to communicate with. when she met us we knew straight away we were in safe hands. We saw Buckingham Palace with no crowds and then a great pub tour in the Southwark area. Charley had booked areas in all the places and all the staff were so accomodating. Charley was funny knowledgeable and gave us some great tips for our Edinburgh trip too. Will be trying the East end food tour next!
