STUDY TOURS IN AND FROM LONDON

Our study tours can provide a valuable resource for tutors organising field trips. Our guides are student-friendly and knowledgeable. They are fully qualified, accredited and insured to guide on coaches and private hire vehicles, and conduct walking tours or interior visits of the main London historic buildings, galleries and museums.

Organising your own transport? No problem: we can arrange for a qualified guide to join your study group at a specified meeting point. Alternatively, we can charter your transport, with a choice of modern, comfortable 8-50 seat vehicles, operated by smart, friendly and professional drivers. All vehicles are fitted with seatbelts, air-conditioning and PA system. Contact us for bookings, enquiries and quotes.

PRACTICAL TOUR INFO:

Important note: 'Private tour' means a privately chartered guided tour. It does not entail exclusive private access. We do not offer tours to individuals wishing to join a larger group (for this you require a scheduled coach tour operator).

Timings: A recommended start time ensures the tour runs to schedule. The duration of this tour is timed from pick-up to drop-off and usually includes built-in stops for photo opportunities, facilities, and a one-hour lunch break.

Pick-up/drop-off: You can be picked-up for your tour anywhere in the central London area, whether at your hotel, place of residence, or venue of your request. The same applies as a dropping-off point after the tour. Tours from London may use fastest routes.

Vehicle: Our typical vehicle is a luxury people carrier. Usually a high-spec 7-passenger Mercedes, with leather seats, armrests, headrests, air-conditioning, tinted windows, front and rear electric sunroof, sliding passenger doors and luggage space.

Driver-Guide: Our presentable, professional and friendly guides drive fully insured private vehicles and carry the British 'Blue Badge' accreditation allowing them to conduct tours, walks and interior visits of major London venues and other UK attractions.

Tour: The main tour is conducted personally by the guide, providing knowledgeable commentary, and assisting with practical issues. Sections of the tour may be conducted by in-house docents or using audio devices, but your guide may still escort you.

Lunch: An appropriate restaurant, traditional pub, or sandwich stop can be arranged for lunch (note: tour price does not include food or refreshments). Alternatively, you may want to bring a pre-packed lunch. The guide may take a rest during this period.
