What You Can Expect

London by Night Independent Sightseeing Tour with Private Driver

London by Night

Picking you up from your central London hotel, your private driver will provide you with a few suggestions for places that you might want to see or explore. Your exact itinerary is flexible, so you can customize your evening based on your preferences – just let your driver know what central London attractions you’d like to see, and then sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

Most itineraries involve a route that takes in the top London sights, so you can get out of the car to walk around, perhaps entering some attractions at your own expense, before venturing on to the next site on your list.

Visit Piccadilly, the busy street that boasts several big-name London shops and hotels like Fortnum & Mason (open till late!) and the Ritz, and see Trafalgar Square when its daytime crowds and pigeons are replaced by party goers and lit-up monuments.

Be sure to take a walk around Soho, London’s proudly bohemian neighborhood, where you’re guaranteed to see a diverse bunch of Londoners enjoying a night out. The epicenter of London’s vibrant gay community, Soho also boasts an eclectic mix of businesses, from bustling Chinatown restaurants to seedy shops to trendy bars crammed full of media darlings from offices nearby.

Neighboring Soho is London’s ‘theatreland’ – the West End. This frenzied and fast-paced area is home to London’s finest theaters, such as the Adelphi and Theatre Royal, and is most definitely worth checking out.

Whatever route you decide to take, consider fitting in the Thames Embankment. Your driver can recommend a famous riverside London pub here, or point you in the right direction for a stroll along the Embankment’s south side. Following the Thames path, pass beautifully illuminated attractions like the London Eye, Festival Hall or the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben on the other side of the river.

After three hours of independent sightseeing around London at night, your private driver will drop you off back at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

My wife and I, along with our three children, spent a few hours with Ahmet as he guided us through London. He passionately told us of the history surrounding the rise of the United Kingdom, how each historical site originated, and the history from the past to the present. He did a great job and when we go back to London, we'll be sure to request another tour with Ahmet.

Thank you, Ahmed. London came to life as you painted a picture of the past, right up to the present.

God Bless you

Our driver Ahmet was most excellent. knowledgable, thoughtful, resourceful and gracious. A first class experience in every aspect. Would not hesitate to employ him again. The car itself was roomy, comfortable and air conditioned Which was essential. All in all, a five star experience.

Well done! We had six guys who had never been to London and the driver did a great job showing them the highlights in 3 hours.

Juan was helpful and informative with a great sense of humor. He was generous with his time and we enjoyed our tour with him immensely. Highly recommend him.

Our first night in London-8:00 PM! There were 8 gal cousins traveling to London this May. Ahmed met us as our McGlashan apartments. Showed us all he could of London. Let us take pictures crossing the street at Abby road. He knew stories of London and place that were beautiful at night. At 11:00 he dropped us off at our speakeasy, Evans and Peel, just as we had asked the tour company to do. He knew the answers to all our questions and was just a delight to know. The tour was perfect for a first time visitor to London or for someone who visits here a lot. All we did was just enjoy the evning and get a sense of how attractions were layed out. He suggested a stop at a pub but we had made reservations at our speakeasy so we did not use his pub idea. Next time we will ask for Ahmed!!

4 star rating: Recommended November 2013

My tour was amazing from Buckingham palace to tower bridge to even some historic houses. Ahmed knew his stuff and encouraged me to get out of the car to look around. Ahmed was amazing he took me everywhere on my list and even more, even with a special photo of tower bridge at a secret location. (Maybe not that secret really) Would've love to have done more but with traffic from 6-9pm on a Friday night really bad we gave up on one of the things I wanted to do and I did it the next morning with his directions
I suggest if you do the tour write down what you want to see before you go and if possible do the latest tour possible to avoid the traffic to get more in

Had a great time with driver Ahmed (W184) who accommodated our 'list of things to see' and then some by showing us 'off the sightseeing map' hidden sights, adding informative history and sharing local insight, We did as much as we could on our 3 hour tour and would have been great to have a video of it.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2013

This tour although very good, could have been done independently via the tube or walking. Photo opportunities were only possible where the drive had a place to stop and park. The paces visited were entirely up to us - the driver made some suggestions but said he would take us where ever we wanted - not helpful if you don't know London. Thankfully we did. Driver was on time and confirming the tour was very easy.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2015

The tour was not what was outlined. Driver ignored our feedback about what we wanted to see and took us to Diana memorial sites. Horrible time and complete waste of money

1 star rating: I do not recommend this December 2013

We booked the private car night tour for two and it was a complete joke. The driver didn't speak English well and knew NOTHING about the sights we drive by. He admitted he knew nothing and thought he was just a hired car for three hours. Really.....for 200 pounds?
