    We want to see every country on this planet... Nearly there! We are from London and I walk past the top sights of London every day and still enjoy seeing them, so I thought: we should show other people these sights!! We have lived in the center of London for over 20 years (right next to the Tower of London). We are both passionate about—and fascinated by—the history and architecture of the city. Our friends and family use us as a human search engine for all things London-related. We are proud to live here, and we really enjoy showing off the city to visitors. Being able to tell people London's facts and figures is great fun.

  • What you will see and do

    You will see the top 20 sights in London before ending your day going up to Europe's tallest building: The Shard.

    Don't forget, Kids, go free on the walking tour (ages 0 - 15) Book your adult spots and let us know how many children we should book The Shard Tickets for. Kids tickets (ages 4 - 15) are £25 each. We will book, you can repay us when we meet :)

    You'll be able to see London from up high, recognizing many historic and new sights that are in this magnificent city. You will have a 360-degree view of London.

    Before you embark on your journey up high our guides will take you on a walking tour that covers the top 20+ sights London has to offer.

    This will give you a good idea of the history, culture, and legends of one of Europe’s best-loved cities. We will head through Green Park to Buckingham Palace, where we'll watch the world-famous Changing of the Guard ceremony. After witnessing this impressive, traditional ritual, where the New Guard exchanges duties with the Old Guard, we'll head to Westminster. Sights we'll see along the way include Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament. We'll time our walk so we get to hear Big Ben's globally recognizable chimes. Then we'll go to the London Bridge area, where we'll see Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London.

    Once your tour of London is over, its time to go up high: The Shard!

    To meet our guides please take Jubilee or Piccadilly line to Green Park station and head outside (remember to be on the side of the road where the Ritz Hotel is)

    Also, bring your head for heights, The Shard is very tall and you'll see some amazing sights.

    Our guides won't go up to The Shard with you: they are too scared of heights. But we will take you there and then you are on your own (you'll have a great time!) The 20+ sights tour is 4.5 hours long
