3 hours | from £40.00 pp
There’s no better way to get to know a new city than through its people - so with the help of a like-minded Local Host, explore London and get a real local welcome! Your host will introduce you not only to some of the landmark sights like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, but will also show you community hubs, beloved local eateries and neighbourhood institutions so you can get a feel for the real London beyond its tourist attractions. Stop by local markets, a neighbourhood bar or an independent coffee shop where you’ll be sharing a table with the locals, let your host share stories with you of what life in the city is like and ask any questions you have about your visit. You’ll be introduced to the neighbourhoods and venues which make London so special, as well as familiarising yourself with the city and ticking a few of its iconic attractions off your bucket list.

Be introduced to the very best of London, seeing it like a Londoner from the start. Your local will take you some of the famous landmarks that you’d most like to see, as well as giving you invaluable insight into how to navigate the city and taking you to local neighbourhoods. 

Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the rest of your trip, helping you to discover other areas of London that they know you’ll love, as well as sharing their local travel hacks so you won’t fall into the tourist traps!
