Covid 19. The good news is that many of London's best attractions are now opening up and there has never been a better time to visit. I am fully signed up to Visit England's "Good to Go" (see certification here)scheme and apply all the safety measures relating to the safe and covid secure way of delivering my tours.
Avoid the lines. As an experienced guide I know how to avoid those annoying lines. I will avoid lines where we can and make the absolute most of our time. There are some sites where we can skip the lines entirely and some where I can reduce waiting time to a minimum.
Let me do the hard work. I will get you around town in the most efficient way possible. London is a big place and I know the quickest routes. I can also provide you with recommendations for places to eat and drink. Touring is meant to be fun and you are on holiday, so take the stress out of all the decision making and leave it to me.
