What you'll do

If it’s been a while since you were in town or this is your first visit, joining a Londoner to help you find your feet is the perfect way to get your trip off to a good start. Discover how to navigate the London underground and buses, get oriented in the city streets, hear snippets of history and get tips for how to enjoy London like a local. Along the way you’ll see some iconic sights like Big Ben and the London Eye, weave your way through the crowds on some of the city’s most iconic streets like Oxford Street and there’s always time to squeeze in a pint in an authentic British pub! It’s always easier to find your feet with a friend by your side, especially when they’re spilling a local secret or two.

Where you’ll go

You’ll explore the historic heart of central London on the north bank of the River Thames. From the timeless elegance of Regents Street - a shopper’s paradise - you can duck down a side street and emerge in eclectic Soho, a small district of tight-knit lanes that are bursting with quirky bars, shops and places to eat. Keep walking south and you’ll pass through charming Covent Garden until you reach the Strand, one of London’s busiest streets which runs parallel to the river. You’ll spot famous landmarks like Trafalgar Square, and amongst all the double-decker red buses and black cabs, you’ll have found your feet in London without even realizing!

  • Get familiar with the best ways to navigate London and how to use its transport systems like the tube (subway)

  • See a few famous attractions in the city, and benefit from local knowledge and insights so you can discover the hidden gems and secret spots too

  • Get tips from your host regarding things to do during your stay

  • Ask any questions you have about exploring London, its culture or where to eat

  • Kickstart your trip armed with local knowledge, and you’ll be exploring like a pro in no time
