Full description

From monuments of the British Empire to top-class contemporary architecture, London is a multicultural metropolis with plenty of interesting stories to tell. Join our Local Guide on the streets of the historic City Center to see must-see sights and hidden gems of London. The 2-hour walking tour is a perfect introduction to London’s history and heritage, including the royal family, British politics, WWII, and even local folklore.

For example, do you know what the City of London Corporation is? Have you ever wondered if people still live in the Tower of London? And what's the difference between Tower Bridge and London Bridge?

Your guide will answer all of these questions, share interesting facts, and help you find the best spots for taking pictures. Admire the scenic Thames river and see notable landmarks such as the Monument to the Great Fire, Mansion House, and the Bank of England.

As this is a private tour, you will have the full attention of your private guide so you can even ask about the best entertainment venues, restaurants and pubs to visit in town. Join the 3-hour tour to add a visit to the oldest church in the City of London to the itinerary. All Hallows By The Tower houses over 1,300 years of history under its roof, including strong connections to London's elite.

This tour will show you more city highlights along with immersive commentary on the local history, government institutions, big corporations, and impressive skyscrapers, such as the iconic Sky Garden. Choose the 4-hour tour to also see the Blackfriars district and visit St Paul’s Cathedral. Your private guide will show you the amazing details of its exterior and interior architecture, which was inspired by the world’s greatest St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.

Admire its stunning altars, frescoes, and paintings, including the quiet Whispers Gallery and other galleries. Then, climb up the Cathedral’s magnificent dome to see the phenomenal views of the Thames and the London skyline, something you won't want to miss.

The 7-hour option is the most comprehensive tour of central London. The extended walking tour will take you past Two Temple Place, King’s College London, and Somerset House to the bustling Trafalgar Square, home to the famous National Gallery, fountains, and monuments.

See the highlights of the City of Westminster, such as 10 Downing Street, the Parliament building, and its iconic Big Ben. Admire the scenic panorama over the Thames River, with the landmark London Eye and a forest of modern skyscrapers.

The main attraction of this extended tour will be a visit inside Westminster Abbey, a historic church where Queen Elizabeth II and other British royals since 1066 have been crowned. Skip-the-line tickets are included so you won't have to waste time buying tickets on-site.
