What to expect
  • At a central London location, greet your private guide and receive an introduction to Whitehall’s colorful history. You’ll begin by strolling past the grand Ministry of Defense and then head to filming locations used in blockbusters such as The Da Vinci Code, Ghostbusters, and the Harry Potter and James Bond franchises.    Amble along Whitehall’s spacious streets to the Houses of Parliament — home to the iconic Big Ben clock tower — and visit 10 Downing Street and the site of Churchill’s War Rooms. While listening to history-rich commentary, you’ll observe a site that used to host jousting tournaments in the Tudor times and admire the remains of a lost Tudor palace. See, too, Westminster Abbey — a Gothic gem in which 38 kings and queens have been crowned — and the office building of Ian Fleming, the author of the James Bond novels. Soak up the bustling atmosphere of Parliament Square and Trafalgar Square — home to the colossal Nelson’s Column — before taking a leisurely stroll through St James’ Park and bidding your guide farewell. Opt to conclude your tour at Buckingham Palace if you wish.

Hazel is full of knowledge and a good entertainer. Private tour for extended family was well received all round and well worth the wait. Brush up on your knowledge of English pub names before you go though - avoids embarrassment in front of your group!
