See London In A Day

Had a wonderful 8 hours walking around the sights of London. You are asked what you would like to see and the guide will work round that. Your guide will also make suggestions to make the most of your tour. I did the full 8 hours so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. My guide was a lovely young lady called Laureen. She did a wonderful job and I can't thank her enough for what she did and showed me. Make sure you have a Travel Card or Oyster card.

Outing with Dan on 10.24

This was my first time in London and I could not have asked for a better experience! Dan was a great person to spend the day with, friendly knowledgeable and very willing to accommodate the kinds of things that I wanted to do and see. He provided great suggestions and showed me some really cool local pubs and bars - the perfect way to spend a day in London! Very grateful for this experience!

Elle made us fall in love with London

My husband and I treated our granddaughter to a trip to London for her 12th birthday. Obviously, we were keen on showing her the most important sights and we asked the CityUnscripted team to help us making an itinerary that could work for people of all ages... we wanted something interesting for Emily, but that we could do at our own pace. Elle came up with a plan and suggested options. We were happy with her suggestions and we were very lucky to find a rare sunny day in London, which allowed us to do and see all the things Elle had planned for us. We will certainly recommend this experience to our friends back home!

Walking in London

It was our first time in London so we wanted to cover all the main sights on day 1 and get tips from someone on things to do, places that are worth visiting, where to eat and drink while in the city. We stayed at Bermondsey which is a lovely area and our local host Romana met us there. She showed us many places around our apartment where we could find food and nice shops, these were not in our guide book and we would have not found them on our own! She also recommended a market which is only on during the weekends, it was great as we could make our plans for the following days according to this. Romana helped us to understand the transport system and how to pay bus and "tube" fares. We walked a lot! All the way up to Tower Bridge (we saw the Bridge opening!! It was wonderful!!) and then along the river seeing the Globe, the Tate, the London Eye and many many things. Most of all, we found a person we really clicked with, Romana is a foodie just like us and her recommendations were truly perfect for us. Thank you Romana!
