Some top tour tips...
Depending on what you want, the sample tours you see here are usually for a half-day (up to four hours), or a full-day (up to nine hours in London and ten hours in places a day’s ride out.)
A combination of walking and public or private transport is the best way to make the most of your time with me. Limos, taxis, coaches – I can organise all of these. And we can also take to the water in one of the city’s service boats – a great way to see London and get from one site to another. On dry land, my favourite, if it’s practical, is to lure you on the buses! For a real buzz, nothing beats the excitement of seeing my city like the natives do from the upstairs of an iconic London double-decker bus! But the tube, our underground train system – which is the oldest in the world – is also a fast and fun way to get around.
To help you cost out your trip here are a few pointers for you. As well as allowing for my rates, which are explained in more detail here, it’s a good idea to allow for the cost of an Oyster Card for the buses, tube and Overground trains within the city. This is really practical for tours of London on foot where we utilise any of these forms of public transport.
No need to pay my fares unless we travel by train outside central London, use taxis or any other form of getting around, including water transport if I do not get a complimentary ticket.
You would also pay all entry fees, including mine if I don’t get a free ticket, where you would like me to guide you, where venues allow it.
It’s also a good idea to put some money aside for tips – and toilets!!
This can all be discussed in greater detail at the tour planning stage.
