About
To me London is the best place to be in the world and it gives me great pleasure to guide people around this vast metropolis, that spreads over 600 square miles! One of the best things about the city is the wealth of things to see and do for all, especially for families. I was born and raised in South London, spent my twenties living in East London and now live within walking distance of King’s Cross, North London all of which has helped give me a greater understanding of the city as a whole.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We just had the best Full Day tour with Danny! He made it such an easy and fun experience, from the moment he picked us up from our hotel until the moment he dropped us off. He made the tour very interesting and fun, even for our 10 & 16 year olds. He also knew so many fun facts and history about London. For anyone looking for a fun one day event, he is the perfect fit. He’ll tailor your day for what you’d like to see or do, I’d definitely recommend booking him!

Danny led a portion of our band on tours of Windsor and Hampton Palace. He was very knowledgeable and so wonderful with all the students and staff. He even kept us entertained during our bus rides from the city and back. Danny will not let you down, highly recommend!

We had a fabulous detailed tour of Westminster Abbey with Danny Parlour. He was very organized and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our new understandings of this important site. Afterwards, we were given a thorough walking tour all the way to Parliament. Danny answered all our questions and provided a wonderful comprehensive afternoon.

Danny was an absolutely wonderful guide! His enthusiasm and deep knowledge of English and world history was incredibly impressive. Even with a little hiccup at the War Rooms (a WWII grenade was found in a nearby garden and we had to evacuate!) Danny swiftly redirected us and was flexible, ensuring we covered everything planned and more. Booking Danny as a private guide was a wonderful decision, I highly recommend!

I can't even begin to explain how much we enjoyed Danny guiding us around London. His services were recommended to us by a friend who had recently traveled to London. Prior to arriving he contacted us regarding what we would like to cover during our tour. We were able to choose between a half day and a whole day of his services - worth paying for the full day for sure.

Danny met us in our hotel lobby and we walked to the Tower of London as he guided us through. Bonus was that he had worked there previously and knew all the key spots. Next we went to Westminster Abbey - Danny being a Blue Badge guide saved us from an extremely long line. We could have spent our whole day here - so beautiful! We then had lunch at a diner on St. James Park and went to the Churchill War rooms which we all loved - even our teenage daughters. On our way back Danny introduced the girls to M & S's and Percy Pig candy 😂. He then brought us back to our hotel.

Even after our day of touring, Danny was very helpful with giving suggestions for the rest of our trip!

The one thing I want to stress - do not let the cost sway you. You will get more information than you ever would from a guidebook and it's personalized to you. He was lovely to all of us and I would use his services again in a heartbeat.

Best advice I can give you: take a private tour on the first day you arrive in London and absolutely you must book Danny Parlour! Spending our first day on a private tour is the absolute best way to get your bearings, especially if it's your first time in London. A native to South London, Danny was bursting with information and passion for the history of the city. I simply cannot believe how much we covered in one day - we started at the Tower of London and walked all the way to Buckingam Palace - 15,000 steps for the day. Not only is his knowledge of London incredibly vast, but he is just a pleasure to get to know throughout the tour. Us group of ladies enjoyed his company so much that we invited him to dinner on a separate night!

Had a wonderful Full Day tour with Danny. We had the pleasure of spending the day with Danny and our two teenagers (18 & 15). Visited the Tower of London, Borough Market and Westminster Abbey. Danny is very knowledgeable, managed our day efficiently and with flexibility. Most importantly he was a pleasure to spend the day with. He truly loves what he does and it shows through. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish.

This is my second tour with Danny and my family’s first! He is so full of incredible knowledge and history. He caters your tour to whatever YOU want to see and gives you the most from your time with him. So kind, considerate, and funny! He knows history and is an official tour guide with the Institute of Tourist Guiding. I can’t recommend him enough! I would give him 10 stars!! Don’t hesitate and book him today!
