Full description
Book this tour and your hosts will contact you within 24 hours and ask you questions about your preferences and interests, so they can match you with the right profile and assign a like-minded Local Londoner. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Keeping in mind your personal answers they will put together a bespoke itinerary, just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. They will arrange a meeting with your guide in the most convenient place for you. If during the tour you feel like changing direction, or your guide believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, they will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary. Enjoy discovering amazing spots in London that you don't know about and are difficult to find in any guidebook or on the Internet, because they are lesser known to the crowd but beloved by Locals! The day revolves around your wishes so enjoy your private tour and let your Local show you the London you will love,

Touring with the Local Friend is a fantastic way to explore London. On the one hand, our guide Adrian had considerable historical knowledge and on the other hand was not embarrassed by an anecdote. Well spent time and very pleasant way to pass the time away from the tourist attractions in London.

I had Dan as my tour guide and he was absolutely lovely, he took to me all the places I wanted to see and more. He was able to answer all my questions. I recommend him.
