Full description
Discover London like a local on a fully personal and private tour in French. Benefit from the knowledge of your guide (Qualified City of London guide, Islington guide, Green badge guide, Member of Institute of Tourist guiding). Your guide can cater for any kind of private group including family with children.

Enjoy a fully customized experience from the moment you reserve, with flexible start times. London is best experienced on foot, exploring the winding streets without being subject to traffic. All the tour is done on foot but you set the pace and you can stop everywhere you want. Your guide will recount exciting stories from London's past and present, show you incredible London landmarks and hidden gems, get to know you to add in extra touches to make the tour even more unique, take photos for you at any time, suggest dining and shopping locations. There is simply no better experience. Also, the guide will give you entertaining, both French and English, historical context.

Take a walk through London's most beautiful secret places and get off the usual tourist track and avoid the typical tour guide banter. You will learn about the London disasters (fires, plagues, wars, riots, etc.) which shaped the city and its inhabitants (Romans, Saxons, Normans, Jews, English, Irish, even French!). Funny anecdotes about famous people, relations between French and English, origins of French and English idioms all along. The tour starts around 10:00 AM in front of the Monument which celebrates the city which rises from the ashes, in the heart of the city of London.
