All in a short and pleasant stroll through St James's Park. From London‘s best views to secluded corners of our most exclusive shopping district.

Any other fees not mentioned in the "Included"
If travelling outside London I can arrange a car or a minibus with a chauffeur for your comfort. Extra fee would be applied. Please let me know in advance.
If using public transport to travel outside London, I would expect you to cover my travel expenses.
I can customise this tour to suit your preferences and we can extend it to a Full Day tour. Meeting point is flexible. I can collect you from your hotel or we can begin in St James's and finish by the Palace of Westminster. If the Changing of the guard is performed, the timings will be slightly different. If you want to include entrance to Westminster Abbey, the Queen's Gallery or the Royal Mews (entrance fees are not included) advance notice is required and timings will change appropriately.
I can meet you at your hotel if you are staying in Central London with no extra charge applied.
If it's outside Central London the fee and timings must be discussed.
You need to pay for your own transportation getting to the meeting point. The price depends on your location and the kind of transport you are going to use. We are not planning to use transport during the tour.
The walk from the beginning to the end is about 4 kilometres or 2,5 miles long but it is a relaxed stroll.
