3-hour London Private City Tour

Enjoy a comprehensive overview of London's fascinating history and must-see sites with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 3-hour London Private City Tour

This 3-hour private tour will introduce you to London's top attractions and walk you through the history of the British megacity. Your expert local tour guide will take you to must-see sights such as Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.


Explore London - one of the world’s largest and most influential cities

With a population considerably larger than Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales (constituent countries of the United Kingdom), it is no surprise that London has always been filled to the brim with fascinating characters, stories and places.

At Buckingham Palace, you’ll see the UK’s famous ‘Beefeater’ guards and learn about the country’s iconic royal family; moving on to the Churchill War Rooms, you'll hear about the man who captained Britain through her darkest days.

Those able to take a 9am or 10am tour may just be lucky enough to see the Changing of the Guards (dates available here), easily one of Britain’s most famous spectacles. This 3-hour private tour will leave you with ample time to explore the stories behind each great attraction you come across.

An in-depth look at the UK capital

If you are popping into London for a quick trip with a group of friends, family, colleagues or other travellers, it pays to make the most out of your stay by booking a private tour that fits your schedule! In a city of 8 million (with attractions to match), it pays to hit the ground running with the inside knowledge only an expert local guide can offer.
