Public transportation between sites is included. In addition to checking off your personal "must-sees," your guide provides suggestions according to your interests. If you’re interested in architecture, your guide takes you to see classic and contemporary buildings; history enthusiasts can visit some of London’s oldest monuments and observe the Changing of the Guard, and those interested in politics can explore Westminster with its famous houses of Parliament.

Gio was our private tour guide. It was our first day there, so we were a "blank page" when it comes to London. Gio was not just knowledgeable - he was personable and funny. We had just a marvelous time and will hire him again on our next trip. Bravo!
