What you’ll do

London is not just a place, it’s a feeling - an energy waiting to be tapped in to.

We want you to experience the best feeling possible (not the one you have when you get on the tube at rush hour), so you’ll join one of our local London hosts to see some of the incredible sights which London is home to.

We’d be lying if we said you could see all of the unmissable sights in just one day, but you can sure make a good go of it! The famous sites are endless, but what will make your day so special is being able to share it with somebody that has authentic insight into the city’s culture.

It will be like spending the day with a friend as you flit between landmarks, cruise along the river for a unique view of icons like Tower Bridge and Westminster (local hack: you can take the ferry with your oyster card and not pay a fortune for a tourist cruise), stop for a pint, craft gin or pick-me-up coffee and try all and any food which takes your fancy.

The day is yours and the city awaits. Now, where shall we start?

London in a Day

Ana Maria is very knowledgeable and was very accommodating on designing the tour based on my likes and interests. Perfect to see London in one day!

A delightful tour customized to our interests

We had four adults on our tour, and the first thing that our guide, Ana Maria, did was to make sure she knew what we were all interested in. I appreciated this, because only ONE person filled out the pre-tour survey! Based on our answers, she modified the plan and we visited places that everyone in our group enjoyed. We commented over and over that we saw and learned so many things that we would have missed without Ana Maria as a guide. And even though I had studied abroad in London we saw and experienced things that I had not seen or experienced before. A really great investment of your time and money - highly recommend!

Thank you Nikki!

Nikki was wonderful - knowledgeable, considerate of our needs especially attending to my husband who was tired walking. She provided excellent service and proved to be a valuable guide for anyone. I highly recommend her for future visitors. Thanks to her for the tour, and, to City Unscripted for arranging it promptly in a short period of time. Thanks again for making our London tour enjoyable and memorable.
