ABOUT THE 2-hour London Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to London and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see spots such as Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Big Ben, as well as walking you through crucial historical events in the city's history.


Discover London, an international melting pot of culture, cuisine and nightlife

At the peak of the mighty British empire, London’s influence held sway over a population 413 million strong. Although her colonial days are long behind her, ‘The City’ retains its role as one of the focal points of history both medieval and modern - a place where hundreds of museums, galleries and restaurants showcase fine culture from all over the United Kingdom and abroad.

Given the British penchant for preserving their pubs, those who choose to forego the history to hole up somewhere cozy with a pint may just find themselves in an establishment dating back to the days of Henry VII. The city’s oldest pubs - including Ye Olde Mitre, Spaniards Inn and the Mayflower - opened their doors to the public in the 16th century.

In the company of your expert local guide, you'll discover the biggest sights and sounds that this megacity has to offer on this 2-hour private tour. Packed with world-famous sights such as Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, this tour is a perfect way to orientate yourself in the city; finishing near the latter, you’ll be left perfectly placed to continue on along the Thames in order to explore the city further.

See London up-close

If you are popping into London for a quick trip with a group of friends, family, colleagues or other travelers, then make the most out of your stay by booking a private tour that fits your schedule! In this sprawling city it pays to hit the ground running with the inside knowledge only an expert local guide can offer.
