Your private driver will collect you from your central London hotel.

Greet your courteous driver at your centrally located London hotel and climb aboard a shiny black cab destined for the city’s secretive and subterranean tunnels. Sink into the car’s comfortable seats and receive an intriguing introduction to London’s history from your driver. 

Stop intermittently to explore parts of an underground network of tunnels and visit an eerie subterranean church crypt. Discover the important function of the tunnels during the Victorian era and hear tales of soldiers roaming the underground city during the World Wars. 

Return to sea level to ascend to the vertiginous summit of the Monument to the Great Fire of London, the world’s tallest free-standing column, and climb the 311 steps to the top. On arrival, gasp at incredible views of London and its scenic environs and then head to St. Paul’s colossal cathedral to gaze up at its dramatic white dome.

Opt to purchase a ticket to the top of a tower in Westminster Cathedral and enjoy unrivaled views of iconic monuments like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Choose to cross the River Thames on a modern cable car for an additional charge, and then return to your hotel after four hours of sightseeing in the city.

What a wonderful morning. Andrew was our driver. He couldn't have been more accommodating or knowledgeable. We did the over and under tour and would not have known about some of the things we saw. One of our party booked a second.

Very impressive tour and guide. Hotel pick-up and drop-off are definitely a plus. Lots of great photo opportunities with stops not on the usual tours. I would definitely do this again. The company worked with our schedule as there were many road closures the day we had booked due to an early morning race through the city. I was very impressed with the service and the tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Gordon was exceptional and gave us a very personalized tour which we really appreciated. Gordon was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Thee was not question that he could not answer. We would recommend this tour to our friends and request Gordon again.

Easily the best tour we have ever had; but not because of the sights. We have been to amazing locations and seen breathtaking things. But this private tour is something we will splurge on in the future! Our wonderful guide, Steve, took us all over London to places we never knew existed and some 'staples.' However, even with the 'staples' he knew where to get the unusual perspectives and absolute best photographs! He wasn't a clock watcher either! He was at our hotel in advance of our official start time and kept the tour going well after the posted end time. He was simply amazing!! Well worth the high price tag (for 2); if you have a few people its a must! It might still be a little higher than a group tour, but OMG - is it worth it!!

This tour was fabulous. We only had about 6 hours in London, so this was a great way to get to see the most. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and willing to accommodate special requests. We took the 4-hour tour, then added on 2 more hours because we were having such a great time!

Excellent. Your company was terrific as we had a Hotel booking which was sold to other parties, so we Were jet lagged and 24 hour late to take up your booking however your company supplied a Taxi with David, the next day and we were able to visit many things including a Church where my great grandparents were married in 1825 in Mary-Le Bone. We had many things of interest pointed out and were able to get into St Pauls Cathedral easily, with wheelchair and this was all very easy . Thank you for your help and kind attention to make our London trip really enjoyable John and Pamela
