Think of this personalized experience with one of our hosts like exploring London with a friend. You’ll spot famous attractions, snap a few photos, sip a coffee, a craft gin or a pint together (whichever is your vibe), browse shops - you get the idea. Your host will also share with you a few hidden gems along the way too. From Buckingham Palace and afternoon tea (although sadly not with Her Majesty) to exploring a diverse neighborhood and feasting on street eats, your half a day in London with a host will be a whirlwind of fun.

Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host.

We had an absolutely amazing time with Naomi as our guide. Naomi was super responsive to requests and ideas even before we left the USA and the day of the tour was very flexible. We had super cold winds and one very tired kid and she made great suggestions for keeping warm in a fun manner and helping keep the kids entertained!! I was very pleased with advice for when we go to Paris too!!

We had been to London before & had seen the "major" sights that are not hard to find, such as London Tower, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's, Kensington Palace etc (& for which you usually need to stand in a queue to get in). Now we like to rent flats in the different areas of London, like Notting Hill, or Chiswick, or Battersea in order to explore "off the beaten path" a bit. A City Unscripted guide is perfect for this. They can suggest a great itinerary but will also take you wherever you'd like to go as well. They'll help you navigate the tube, the bus system etc (which is invaluable for learning how to get around London in a short time period), they can take you places & to see sights that as a tourist on your own you would never find. They know the spots where you can get great photographs (& of course can help take them so you don't even need to drag along a selfie stick). Our guide Becky was very personable & knowledgeable about the area. It's a great, efficient way to get a lot of the sights in because you don't have to waste any time navigating (or getting lost) when trying to get someplace you want to go. And it was a very reasonable price as well. Using City Unscripted was one of my smarter ideas.

The tour was nice but our guide did not know a lot of history of the area. We have had guides in the past tell us the history of the city and the buildings. But our guide simply pointed out the buildings and their names.

it was truly a wonderful experience. Valentina, our guide, is very prepared, has studied for us a path that has allowed us to quickly see all the main monuments of London, she has been able to explain history and curiosities of each place.
