BESPOKE LONDON ....
is where I - a long-time London dweller, lover, walker and guide book author - show you my London on exclusive, private tours. Think of it as a "walk with a friend" - through streets and neighbourhoods, parks and along the river, past small shops and galleries. My highly customised London tours in English and German for small private groups of up to four are designed to show you London, the mad, diverse and every changing city on the Thames, as opposed to London, the Disneyland of Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guards, Westminster Abbey or, god forbid, Madam Tussauds.
By all means, get on a hop-on/hop-off bus to see all of these typical tourist sights for a first overview. However, if you want to dig bit deeper and just see the city alongside a local, then walk with me. No stress, no fuss, no getting lost, just a bit of flexibility is needed to see the real London. And: Your input while out and about is very much encouraged! Every tour can be adapted on the go.
There are three BESPOKE LONDON tour options:
Choose from one of three neighbourhood tours here. They are, like all of my tours, off the beaten track and constantly updated and adopted. Best: if you already know all the typical sights and would like to explore further to see how London lives and breathes in different parts of the city.
Let me know your interests and I'll design a tour just for you: arts & culture, lifestyle, shopping, parks & gardens, food, architecture - you name it. This involves a certain amount of input from you and preparation on my part. Just send me an enquiry at least one week before your preferred tour date and we'll take it from there. Best: if you have very specific interests and would like to know what London has to offer in this respect.
Don't do any of the above; just book a BESPOKE LONDON tour and be surprised on the day. Could be anything and anywhere. Best: if you, well, like a surprise.
Please note, my tours are not regular guided city tours full of historical facts, figures and details. If you want to know when every house we pass buy has been built, this is not for you.
For booking and enquiries, please email email@example.com
The following applies to all three options:
Group size: up to four; bigger groups upon request
Length of tour: choose from two options - 1. tour booking for min. of four & max. of five hours or 2. tour booking for min. of six & max. of seven hours
I'll pick you up at your hotel or other location of your choice at a time of your choice
Transport: walking and it's likely quite a bit of that (only on foot can you really discover London, just saying) plus public transport (tube, bus, overground, DLR). However, it's your tour so whenever you feel like hopping in a cab instead, we'll do that.
My private tours are ideal for couples, friends/groups of friends or families, as long as you understand that they are not specifically kids-themed.
I’m very happy to create customised tours for corporate programmes or incentives
