What you’ll do 

Join a Local Host to discover London's top attractions and explore its most famous neighbourhoods - all through a local lens of course!

Choose exactly what you’d like to see, taking your pick from the best attractions in Westminster, Southbank, Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and London Bridge. From the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace, this experience will show you the capital’s most loved sights at your own pace. 

Follow the unique route which your Local Host has designed specifically to take in your chosen attractions, as well as including a few secret local spots along the way!

Spend time getting to know your Local Host who can give you advice, insider tips and London travel hacks and suggest things to see, do and eat that they know you’ll love.  


What to expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you. 

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do. 

Your Local host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary. 

Although you’ll visit famous attractions, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, restaurants and spots that are loved by locals, and that you wouldn’t find a in a guide book. 


How this benefits you

With a Local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with London and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.

Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a Londoner.

See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten path areas where the locals really live.

Our Local Hosts can all speak English, but many also speak Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Russian, Indonesian, Malay, Arabic and many other languages so they can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality.
