London tours


Walking tours and other specialty tours of London

London is a complex and complicated city with many layers of history not always readily apparent to the naked eye.

This truly is one city where your experience will be greatly enriched by taking a few walking tours or other specialty tours—by bus, boat, or even an in-depth tour of just a single museum or sight. Honestly it's one of my top favorite things to do in London.

The best places to shop for a London tour are the legendary London Walks company, the academcially-minded Context Travel, where walks are lead by docents who tend to be professors or PhDs, and, which lists some 130 tours and day trips in London.
