We used London Magical Tours at the end of 2010 following the recommendations on the forum as part of a day trip from Paris. We were so happy with the experience that we used them on our most recent London visit at the end of October and were not disappointed.
We opted for our own tour team of a tour guide with an extra chauffeur and loved the personal experience. Having previously done the hop on bus tours and private tours in Paris, this was by far the best tour we have taken. Having a London expert show you a city like London makes everything come alive, her knowledge was exceptional. Our driver was wonderful, punctually picked us up at Heathrow without any problems and we always felt completely safe in his hands going through London's famous roads! Having the extra driver is highly recommended, it meant that the guide was able to focus her attention only on us and our children loved it!
We were first in line at the changing of the guard and have the best pictures. Our guide took us to a spot away from the huge crowds and the guards came face to face with us! We opted for the London Eye and Tower of London options too, both of which were great.
We plan to return to London next year and will use again. If you are looking to make the best of your time on a layover - this it it!
