Guided Tours for Top 10 Experiences in London

Guided Tours for Top 10 Experiences in London

I am an absolute believer that guided tours are sometimes necessary to maximise my experiences when on vacation. This is especially so when my visits are only for a few days and I want to learn/know as much as I possibly can of my destination. I tend to book a couple of guided tours so I do not worry about transport to get there and back as well. Besides, I do like all the “inside scoop” that only travel guides sometimes know. As such, guided tours are totally up my alley because it takes stress off me to plan with regards to that destination.

My trip to Geneva was a short weekend break and I wanted to see more than just the city. I booked a day trip guided tour to Mont Blanc from Geneva. This was a full-on 10 hour tour and was one of my most memorable, special and an unforgettable experience.

Given my simple and rewarding experiences with guided tours at destinations, that I have the following suggestions on London for you to explore the City with:

[Kindly note that some tours may be sold out months ahead, especially the Harry Potter Warner Brothers Studio Tour – Harry Potter fans, book your tickets well in advance to avoid disappointment]

 

Convenience of Guided Tours

Booking your activities with Get Your Guide is super easy! They have mobile-friendly payment and tickets for booking on the go system. This means mostly with a couple of clicks, you are done. In some instances, you will have the purchase delivered to you if you wish. Mostly though, you can download it onto your phone, show it at the door, and if you purchase the skip-the-line tickets, you can walk straight through

You can purchase these activities at the time you begin to plan your vacation which may be months, weeks, days ahead or you could purchase them like I did, when I visited Milan – just a few hours before joining the activity at Milan Cathedral. If you decide to purchase them in advance, you still have the flexibility of cancellation up to 24-hours before the activity commence.

However, some activities may have different requirements. Please read specific T and Cs pertaining to the activities when you book them.
