The Best Private Tour We've Ever Done
Oct 2021
We loved our private tour with Georgie. She was amazing. She showed us so many amazing things and told us lots of cool history about London and the places we visited. I don't know how she remembers it all. She was so personable and took the time to know what we liked. I would highly recommend a tour with Private London Tours. We can't wait to go back and do another tour with Georgie. She was the best private guide we've ever had.

Perfection in the City
Sep 2021
Where to begin? This was an absolutely incredible tour. From the start, Gio, the tour operator, was highly responsive, collaborative, and full of great suggestions. I felt prepared for the trip and was able to provide a lot of input.

THe morning of the trip, Jasmin, an actress and comic who is legitimately hilarious and whose face I would (as an American) put on the Mount Rushmore of Great Tour Guides met me on time in the lobby. From there we began our journey by foot and bus where I received a survey of all of the major London landmarks from Tower Bridge where Jasmin pulled up a hilarious YouTube video to embellish her storytelling, to Piccadilly Circus. Along the way Jasmin was full of stories both funny and tragic about London's history. She was also keen to get to know each other so it really felt like I had a longtime friend showing me around their city.

We stopped for a brief lunch (note to self, "Club Soda" is not a thing here, order "sparkling water" in the future or you will be mercilessly roasted in the best possible way). Following lunch, we saw so many sights including Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, the Diana Memorial, and ended our day outside Westminster Abbey at the Abraham Lincoln statue.

One important note, this is primarily a survey of major London sights with hours of accompanying stories, facts, legends, etc. You don't go into the sights (I suppose you could but it would take away from your time with your guide). I knew that going into it so I had the right expectations but if you're expecting to actually enter Buckingham Palace book a different tour or work with Gio to see how you can make that happen.

I can't say enough good things. If you're on the fence for any reason, be it price, timing, or anything else, put those concerns out of your mind and book this tour today. Request Jasmin if you can - both she and Gio will go out of their way to make your tour perfect.

Thank you Charlie for your kind comments. Jasmin says you both got on like a house on fire and she thoroughly enjoyed her day showing you around London. All the best!

Weekend with the Bestie
What a fab guide Gio was. He loves his city and knew all the nooks and crannies. Def the way to see London if you have never been. The culture old and new is amazing. With Gio it was like walking with a friend. Be prepared to walk tho 29000 steps for a full day. Butnwas at our own pace, lunch stop at Borough Market, yum. Finishing off at Piccadilly with dinner at Hawksmoor.

Thank you so much for the lovely review Georgina. I had a fantastic day with you both and I really genuinely appreciate you for supporting our small business during this time! Sounds like you kept on walking after the tour - hope you enjoyed Chinatown and then dinner. Hope to welcome you both back soon!

Excellent insights and customer service
My family was scheduled to visit London at the end of June 2020. After much research on London private tour guides, I was lucky enough to find Gio from Private London Tours Ltd. He planned out 2 great days for us to see the London sights and to head out to visit Windsor Castle. His insights were spot on for our family and we were very much looking forward to the trip. Unfortunately we weren’t able to go given the current environment. Gio was very accommodating on the cancellation and went above and beyond to secure refunds for tickets that he had already purchased for the various sites we planned to attend. We will definitely book with Gio when things get back to normal and we can get to London. Thanks for your time and effort Gio!

Thank you so much for your review - I really appreciate it. I think it's really important to treat our guests fairly and I am glad the flexible cancellation policy worked well. Excellent customer service is the founding principle of Private London Tours and I always want to make sure that our guests are happy. Hopefully the current situation ends soon and we can pick right back up where we were and our guides can welcome you our amazing city! See you soon!

Private Day Tour Extraordinaire
Oct 2019 • Family
This was a 6 hour private car, private guide tour. We had already seen the Tower if London, St Paul’s and the Churchill War Room with another private tour. This tour took us to places that we hadn’t been to. Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guard, Westminster, the Abby, inside info on Parliament and a trip to Greenwich. Lunch at a great pub there, the Cutty Sark, Royal Navy Academy and the Prime Meridian. A thrill to be both east and west in the world at the same time. lol Gio gave us a wonderful tour throughout, he was informative, personable and made the 6 hours fly by. A must do if you have limited time and want to get a flavor of London, history and the sights. Ask for Gio!

Day Tour of London
Aug 2019 • Couples
Gio provided a superb tour of London assuring that my husband and I saw everything we had selected to tour. In addition, he added numerous other interesting sites.Gio was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. He directed us to travel by tube and bus but mostly by foot which we prefer. The seven hour tour was most definitely a marvelous way to become more acquainted with London. We highly recommend this tour and suggest you request Gio.

Gio was our private tour guide. It was our first day there, so we were a "blank page" when it comes to London. Gio was not just knowledgeable - he was personable and funny. We had just a marvelous time and will hire him again on our next trip. Bravo!
