Want to see London's iconic sights with a fun local as your private guide? Then enjoy a dynamic day with one of our amazing guides, tailored to your pace and your interests! Your guide will meet you at your hotel, apartment or central London location (London transport zones 1 & 2). You'll see exterior views of Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey. Watch the famous Guard Change (weather and schedule permitting) and see the Queen's home, Buckingham Palace. Then enjoy lunch at a traditional British pub, or get something to go. (Food is at your own cost.) Travel through the Theatreland on a classic London red bus, then cross the Millennium Bridge for the best view of St Paul's Cathedral, then stroll on the Southbank, past cultural sites like Shakespeare’s Globe, enjoying the stunning views across the river. We can finish the tour at a place that suits you, and we'll make suggestions for the rest of your trip tailored to you.

London Explorer Tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
Charley was the absolute best guide we could have asked for to see London. She came to our hotel had breakfast with us. Explained everything we saw and even waited for us while my wife and I went up in the London Eye. We were lucky and had an afternoon snack in Buckingham Gardens. We could not have asked for anything more.

Beyond amazing!
Aug 2021
Charley was a revalation. I could not have asked for a better or more knowledable guide. To be fair, although Charley was always ready with some facinating tidbit or other and was a veritible encliclapdeia of knowledge of the amazing town she lives in, my purposes were of a more practical nature, in that I was in London for a photoshoot for a weathlthy Russian client and I needed a knowledgable location scout. Charley rose to the challenge and excelled in every concivable way, often pointing out angles and suggesting unique shots that I would have struggled to come up with on my own. In short, Charley made the entire event possible and I could not have been nearly so successful for my client without her help. 10 ot of 10 for a truly VIP experience!

The best London tour guide!!
Apr 2021 • Solo
Charley's knowledge of her hometown is just amazing and her elocution is so easy on the ears. I love taking her tours with her smile in her voice and love of sharing information that she has accumulated over such a vast area in order to enhance our experience. Thank you so much and I will continue to travel with you virtually in the event that one day it will be in person.

A great tour with a great guide Charley
Jan 2021
Even we have been to London few years ago, I found Totally Tailored and asked them for a virtual private tour for my wife. Charley is very passionate about London and her knowledge on London's history plus the simple way of narrating it made the virtual tour really great. I strongly recommend to those interested in London and its history even during these times when we can have these tours virtually too.

Charley was our leader and she was a font of all knowledge.
Very easy to rebook and change from a cancelled tour during lockdown
Highly recommended and a great weekend! Thanks to Charlie and the team

Great tour!
Aug 2020 • Couples
I did one of the first tours with Charley post lockdown and it was great. me and my partner had to change our date and she was super accomodating and easy to communicate with. when she met us we knew straight away we were in safe hands. We saw Buckingham Palace with no crowds and then a great pub tour in the Southwark area. Charley had booked areas in all the places and all the staff were so accomodating. Charley was funny knowledgeable and gave us some great tips for our Edinburgh trip too. Will be trying the East end food tour next!

A wonderful experience with Jack
Feb 2020
I had the most incredible day with Jack. We arrived from Paris to St Pancras train station where he welcomed us. Jack managed to cover our check list in a few hours, from Westminster to Buckingham and the Tower of London. It was a fantastic experience ! I highly recommend it. He is very knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic.
Thanks very much again and can't wait to come back to London. Alex

Our Favorite Day in London
Dec 2019
We had the privilege of using Totally Tailored on our recent trip to London. It was our first time to the city and we wanted to see and do as much as possible. Our wonderful driver, Kevin, and fabulous tour guide, Beatrice, made sure we did just that. We enjoyed touring the city, having a fabulous lunch, and learning so many cool and interesting facts along the way. Our 8 and 10 year olds have loved sharing their new knowledge with all of their friends and family back in the states. Beatrice made sure that we were able to do and see everything on our list and we all had the best time in the process! She is the BEST and we can’t thank her enough for such a wonderful day!! We look forward to doing another tour with Totally Tailored on our next visit!

Amazing tours of an amazing city!
May 2019 • Couples
My husband and I visited London this month for a three-day pro wrestling event at Alexandra Palace, and this was the first time we had ever visited London, so we booked three private tours through London Tailored Tours. On our last full day in the city, we did the Best of London in a Day tour.

Our tour guide, Rob, was excellent! He was on time, very friendly and personable, and very knowledgeable about the history of London. Our driver was also a delight, and the car we rode in was very spacious and comfortable. We got to see all the highlights of London, including Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the changing of the horse guard, Trafalgar Square, and the Tower of London. We also got to have a delicious lunch at a local pub (loved the bangers and mash!) and was treated to a tour of the National Gallery and got to see a lot of fantastic artwork. Mason provided the actual tour of the National Gallery, and he was great!

For anyone who wants to visit London, I highly recommend using London Tailored Tours. Their prices are very reasonable, and you get a lot more out of their private tours than seeing everything on a crowded tour bus. We had a blast in London and can't wait to come back!
