A Wonderful Wander in Kensington

CityUnscripted London organise private and personalised tours of a local area. A local guide delivers a tailor-made itinerary based on your wishes and requirements. My sister and I were given a complimentary tour with them through our hotel, The Kensington. My sister and I were keen on being reacquainted with London after having being students here. She lives in the States and doesn’t visit Europe often. I visit London a good deal, but never this particular area. The arrangements for the tour were professionally handled by the CityUnscipted London team, with prompt and pertinent replies to any query. The trip lasts three hours wherein one is collected at the hotel and delivered to a point where you can easily find your way back. The high point of our tour was our guide, Gail Spencer. She is English to the backbone, educated as a guide and widely knowledgeable about British society, architecture and politics, both past and present. Her conversation never felt forced, but was guided by what we expressed interest in. She had defined a route which led us to all the points of interest we had discussed previously, as well as other quirky elements. One of these was enlightening us about the tiny green sheds on some streets for cab drivers with The Knowledge, those who have memorised every street, landmark and route in London. These are places cabbies can find refreshment and a mate to chat with. Each hut is no bigger than a horse and cart. I had always assumed them to be old-fashioned public conveniences so I was glad for this piece of knowledge! Our tour included a little sit down and some refreshment of our own. Gail chose a quintessentially English pub for this. She also pointed out other pubs and restaurants on our route that we might like to visit during our stay in the area. Kensington is a borough with so many quaint and lovely features. It was interesting to be given the inside story by a professional and friendly guide. Our three hours flew by!

Schöner Stadtrundgang

Wir hatten schöne 4 Stunden, keine Hektik, kein Rennen, einfach eine schöne Tour, die uns die Stadt näher gebracht hat! Jederzeit gerne wieder! Und Danke für solche Tipps wie Covent Garden. Wir hatten dort noch eine schöne Zeit und sehr leckere Torten!! Marc & Sophie

London private walking tour

We walked over 9 miles and saw a ton! Nikki was great at showing us all the sites of London. Conversation flowed easily while we walked the city and she was constantly thinking of the best way to see as much as we could possibly see. Great excursion!!

Gessica simpatica e preparata

Abbiamo visitato la parte ovest di Londra con Gessica, simpatica ragazza italiana che ci ha accompagnato per 4 ore, senza mai annoiarci.
