Updated: September 2020

With social distancing measures lifted, we are delighted to announce that London Magical Tours is continuing to welcome visitors back to London and the surrounding cities. It is fantastic to hear from so many travellers eager to return and discover the best of the United Kingdom.

With reservations being made in advance, we would like to re-assure all of our guests that hygiene and your safety is of the utmost importance.

To this end, we have introduced the following measures to keep everyone safe:

  • All guests (as well as the tour guide and chauffeur) are to wear masks while touring inside of the vehicle.
  • Tour guides will practice social distancing according to the latest government regulations, maintaining a current distance of 2 metres from guests at all times when guiding outside of the vehicle.
  • Guides and chauffeurs will refrain from shaking hands and making physical contact with guests.
  • Offering visits away from the crowds, including priority fast track entry where available.
  • Private tours are the best way to avoid crowded areas and our tour guides are specialists in going off the beaten path, including behind the scenes opportunities and visits through quiet back streets.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available in all vehicles
  • A thorough sterilisation and clean of vehicles before each and every private tour – all surfaces will be cleaned and wiped down in accordance with latest Covid-19 practices.
  • Any guide or chauffeur with symptoms will be unable to report to work, no matter how mild, with regular Covid-19 testing taking place.

One of the main benefits of a private tour is that you are provided with your very own vehicle. Unlike bus tours, shared tours or visiting London via public transport, our private tours are exclusively for your party and provide a personalised experience to help you enjoy the cities away from the masses.

Visit the London Magical Tours website to plan your trip and book your next London Private Tour.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you all again.


A Lovely London Magical Tours Review from our friends from New York

We hope everyone is doing well during the current climate.

Every year we receive thousands of comments from happy visitors from across the globe that visit the UK on our group and private London tours.  Many are featured in the customer comments section of the main London Magical Tours website. Every now and then we do however receive wonderful trip reports with stories and photos to match. We wanted to share one such example in this week’s blog, courtesy of the Terezakis family from New York.

Thank you for having the time to share your thoughts and comments on your London Magical Tour. We are thrilled to hear you had a truly magical time with us exploring London!

We only had 2 full days in London and didn’t want to waste them trying to see all the sights by ourselves so we booked a private tour with London Magical Tours. What a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! Our tour guide made it so much fun for all of us especially our 2 teenagers. His knowledge of the history of all the places we visited truly made the experience unforgettable. From St. James Palace to the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, fish and chips in Kensington, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and ending with high tea, we covered so much in one day. Our driver was amazing as well!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We had a memorable experience thanks to London Magical Tours!

London Holiday Lights Tours

London Christmas Tours 2019

 

Our annual Christmas tours are now in full swing!

London is looking more festive than ever this year and we are delighted to hear how much our guests are enjoying discovering the best of the capital’s Christmas lights and decorations on our Magical London Christmas tours.

Our award winning London holiday lights tours return this holiday season from 10th of November 2019 to 6th of January 2020. Much more than just the best of the Christmas lights, the tours go on a special holiday  journey of discovery through the ages, from Dickens and secret Christmas trees, to the Victorian Squares and off the beaten path neighbourhoods from which so many of our festive traditions originate.

This year guests can opt to join one of our scheduled group tours or a private tour for ultimate privacy. Get away from the crowds with your own tour team: your own professional London Magical Tours guide plus in addition, an extra chauffeur, to avoid all parking worries. The tour makes extended stops to go outside of the vehicle with your professional guide, with plenty of opportunities for photographs and optional visits to Hamleys Toy Store, Harrods Christmas World or the traditional Victorian Arcades. Collection and return to your central London hotel or accommodation is included on private tours for the perfect holiday experience.
