Private Custom Tour: London in a Day

Select Date and Travellers
USD 54.20
2 travellers
Put together your perfect day in London, and see the sights that you want to see on this half- or full-day tour with a private local guide. Customized entirely to your preferences, your itinerary is totally flexible, and your tour includes what you need to see London with ease: preplanned logistics and a knowledgeable guide. See the landmarks that give London its renowned reputation such as the Tower of London and Big Ben, and discover the secret streets and parks that only the locals know.
  • Discover the London you’ve always dreamed of with a local private guide
  • Revel in a private tour that’s tailor-made to suit your individual interests
  • Choose between day or half-day tours with flexible departure times
  • Pay-as-you-go attractions and transportation means extra cost control
What to Expect
Before your tour begins, liaise with your guide to explain your interests and enthusiasms so that they can tailor-make a tour that suits your needs. That might include off-the-path locations like East End markets and secret Soho restaurants, or big-ticket attractions like the Tower of London and Big Ben. You might choose to travel by London’s efficient public transport or relax with the comfort of a private car: your guide can advise on pricing for this and attractions. Once your tour has been planned, greet your guide at your central London hotel—or your choice of central London location—and embark on a 100% customized private tour, with every sight explained in depth by a passionate local expert. Tours will vary according to your interests, but you can read a sample full-day itinerary below.
