Typically British is a new way of discovering London - by becoming a Londoner for a day! Typically British is not a conventional tour of the city - it's a cultural experience! We are a group of life enthusiasts with one simple goal – putting you in the shoes of a local. Unlike other walking tours in the capital, we are giving you a first-hand experience of the British lifestyle and culture, from the local cuisine and secret locations to the most typical everyday expressions! Everyday walking tours are fun - but they're just half the fun. With Typically British we are taking a new approach on traditional walking tours to let you experience the British culture first-hand by becoming a real Londoner for a day. With more than 1000 years of British history and tradition packed into 2 hours with your local tour guide and a small group of traveling enthusiasts, you will explore some hidden gems of the city, learn about the local history and tradition, enjoy the traditional British cuisine alongside your favourite local drinks and most importantly - have a lot of fun doing it! We designed our tours as a "guidebook" to London life and culture. Ever thought if the British stereotypes are true? Now you have a chance to experience them for yourself. Join one of our specially prepared tours that show a segment of the British lifestyle or choose the bundle, for the full British experience!

I don't consider myself being a typical tourist (I like to explore things on my own) but the premise of this trip sounded promising. We were guided by two tour guides that kept us entertained the whiles two hours. I never realised there are so...More

My friends and I joined the tour last minute and was very enjoyable. It is great introduction to London's past and present, with a lot of humor and great stories! The price also included lunch that offered a great selection of local food!

My girlfriend and I booked the Lunch tour. It was a great way to try local food, see the hidden bits of the city and learn about London. Very informative and a good way to meet other tourists too.

Although this was my second trip to London I still haven't been to any sightseeing tours until now. Apparently we were among the first group to be on the typically british tour and I must say it was fun. I even learned some cockney slang!...More

I was handed a flyer to check out this new tour and was quite surprised with the experience. I'm a big fan of sightseeing tours but I must say typically british brings a new twist to traditional walking tours. The emphasis is not on sightseeing...More
