Whatever your route, it’s hard to miss some of the city’s top sights. Setting off through Piccadilly, see the lively evening crowd and pass elegant landmarks like Fortnum & Mason and the Ritz. From your comfortable vantage point, view Trafalgar Square aglow and stop in bohemian Soho for a peek at London’s most chic revelers. Stroll through the vibrant streets that make up Soho’s gay district, and check out the quirky businesses, hip bars, and Chinatown restaurants.  

Continue on to the West End, dubbed ‘Theatreland’ as the home of the capital’s great theaters like the Adelphi and Theatre Royal. Head down to Thames Embankment to pop into a pub for a pint or stroll along the river for illuminated views of Tate Modern, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, and Big Ben.

Along the way, learn insider tips and fascinating facts that you wouldn’t get anywhere else, and enjoy the flexibility of stopping whenever you'd like to get a closer look at an area. Your sightseeing tour ends with drop-off at your central hotel.

Exceptional way to see the city!
Ericka_J, Jan 2020
We were greeted and escorted to the van where Ahmed was our driver. We saw all the sites we wanted to see and more. He was very educated on history and that made it so much better! He was very accommodating to our needs and it went exceeded our expectations!
Response from Host, Jan 2020
Dear Passenger, Thank you for your lovely feedback and for trusting us with your arrival/departure transfer. We hope you will travel again with us in the future. Kind regards,
Where to start....the tour company...
Sabrina S, Oct 2018
Where to start....the tour company tried to switch our pickup time from 8pm to 7pm. When I called to confirm we were only available at 8pm they confirmed the driver would be able to pick us at that time. Our driver, Tim I believe that was his name didn't show until after 8:15, and opened with where do you want to go and why did you cancel the pick up for 7pm...We booked this tour because we had less than 24 hours in London and wanted a guided tour by someone who knew the area and could show us all the key locations. If I knew London then I wouldn't have needed a tour...When I reminded him that the tour was for 3 hours, he seemed to be stretching the time by driving by the same landmarks 4-5 times. When brought up other historical landmarks that we'd like to see, he had to map quest to the location. At one point he seemed lost and I had to help with directions by my phone. I would never suggest to tour to anyone. It was horrible and a complete waste of money

diana_k, Jul 2018
Our driver Ahmed W184 was amazing! We ended up taking almost two hours going through passport control which made us late for our tour. Ahmed worked with us to meet us in a different location so we wouldn't waste anymore time. He then tailored our tour to meet our needs, hitting all the spots we wanted to see in the time we had. We had such a good time and his company and knowledge of the city history made for a memorable excursion. We only had a long layover in London and wanted to maximize our time, Ahmed ensured our needs were met. I highly recommend taking this tour.

My parents and I took this tour and weren't sure of how it would turn out. However, Flavius took us to a lot of places we had not even heard of before even after having visited London a couple of times and also gave us many insider tips. The trip was amazing overall. Highly recommended

Patrice C, Sep 2017
Poor review doesn't reflect the driver who was very nice. He was called into service when our driver didn't show up, for supposed car trouble. I had to call several times over and hour and 5 minutes and was told someone would be there soon. No one called to inform us there was a problem. Driver used Google maps to drive to sights however didn't know any of the history and we stopped the tour after 2 hours. Would recommend calling an Uber driver and working out a tour. This company lacked professionalism and attentiveness.

Rick B, Aug 2017
This tour was wonderful. Seeing things at night gives London a different feel and is a beautiful experience. Ahmed was what made it the BEST. We didn't give him a lot of direction, just a couple of things we were interested in and he took it from there. His knowledge is amazing and makes everything even things we were unaware of fascinating and interesting. And he knew how to get the best photo opportunities!

Bears92, Jun 2017
After confirming 24 - 48 hours in advance per their request and verifying the 8pm pick up. they never showed up and when the hotel called about the no show, they said they did not have a driver available for my tour. By this time it was too late to schedule something else. Thought it would be a great way to end our stay in London we were so wrong. Ruined our last night in London.

Be sure to have an agenda of what you would like to see before starting the tour, or you will waste time making a decision.

Richard E, May 2017
We booked this tour largely based on other peoples reviews as it sounded an ideal way to see London. Having been on the trip it now seems obvious that everything depends on the driver. We were unlucky! We were due to be picked up at our hotel at 8pm and were duly waiting on the pavement. Twenty minutes later after checking both entrances and looking around inside we found our driver hanging around in a corner not making any attempt to find us. OK, a bad start but not the end of the world. Our driver was a woman from the Czech Republic we discovered later who had been in England for eight years. Considering this her grasp of the English language was poor! We had a brief and confused conversation about what we wanted to do and said that we'd like to drive over Chelsea Bridge and visit the South Bank for a stop but apart from that we would leave it to her. We saw the bridge but didn't go over it not a major problem, we saw a lot of the sights with a few monosyllabic descriptions e.g. That's err Buckingham Palace. We went over Westminster bridge but instead of heading for the vibrant nightlife we were looking for just drove along an dead road and back over the river. The best I can say is that the driver we never found out her name could certainly drive in London. We didn't get a stop, we didn't get any sort of commentary, and we didn't get to see Soho. Altogether a very disappointing evening and as I said at the start It all depends on the driver!

Chris A, Dec 2016
Our driver Dusko was so accommodating. I had some colleagues from overseas who literally only had the one evening to 'see' London. I recommended a few places and Dusko ensured that we saw them all. He found the best routes and even picked us up earlier. An absolutely delightful and knowledgeable guide.
Worst experience EVER while on...
Nick M, Nov 2016
Worst experience EVER while on Vacation. Driver obviously didn't want to be giving us the Tour Offered and Paid for, and we had to pay a Cash only upcharge for him to actually pick us up for our already paid for Tour. Speed thru the sights, offered nothing more than this is Stop so and so. THEN, even though it CLEARLY was on the tour booking, and on my confirmation Email, Driver tried to force us to find an alternate way home when he deemed the Tour was over, 40 Minutes before his Booked time ended. Thus inciting a panic thru my family at 10:15 PM on a Monday night in the middle of Downtown London. Several minutes of bickering, and the driver arguing with The Company later, and he grudgingly was told to take us back to our hotel. So, thank you to the driver for scaring 3 kids and 2 parents on their last night in London. Your actions undoubtedly determined we will never be back in London for more than a Plane Change from now on.

BRIAN K, Nov 2016
Ask for Ahmed! He showed us ALL the highlights of the city at night and got into places to park that no big tour bus could dream of going. My companions and I were raving about how much we enjoyed this tour. We would recommend Ahmed and this tour to anyone we knew going to London.

Gladys C, Sep 2016
Excellent. Would give more than five stars if the option was there. No words could adequately describe the experience. Such a well informed driver provided tremendous commentary with each area we visited. Went above and beyond what my friend and I anticipated.

nikaksa, Nov 2015
The driver called Kaido or something from Nigeria was not knowledgeable about any of the places, and was a complete bore, he didnt show any enthusiasm. He bored us so much that we were snoozing off during the tour. Plus, in the dark you barely see much.

Kenn B, 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 Rev. Dr. Kenn B

Jan W, Aug 2014
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.
