The Advantages of Private Tours

Discovering a city with a own Tour Guide and, in addition, your own chauffeur: Magical

Discovering a city with your own Tour Guide and, in addition, your own chauffeur: Magical!

The Magical Tours brand offers the exclusivity of providing guests their own tour team on its private tours. That’s one person to lead the excursion, your professional tour guide, and in addition, there is also your own chauffeur to drive and take care of the road and parking.

Want to know about the advantages of this service? Here are a a few reasons to go down the private route:

 

Flexibility

If you have ever been on a tour on a large bus, then you have first hand experience at how unflexible this type of tour can be. Private Tours shine because they offer a personal experience. You are able to, for example, ask for specific requests and stops during your visit. Your tour guide is there exclusively for your party: you can ask as many questions, take photos and seek the best place to have refreshments – all at your leisure, ensuring a memorable time is had by all.

Why join the masses on a sub par experience?

Away from the crowds

With a Private Tour, you are accompanied by your very own tour guide and chauffeur, who are there to meet your sight-seeing needs. Having a team at your disposal means that you can be taken to the famous landmarks away from the hustle and bustle, beyond the crowds of tourists. It is like having a knowledge friend taking you on an adventure through some of the world’s best cities. What’s more, you can go off the beaten path into areas that even many locals themselves are unfamiliar with.

Safety

Your safety and comfort should be the utmost priority. Learning all about a city should be a pleasurable and fun experience. Unfortunately over recent years, safety in large cities is becoming an increasing major concern. Our chauffeurs have all gone through the highest background checks. Your chauffeur will be with the vehicle at all times, belongings can stay safe while you are out sightseeing. Why risk your safety any other way?

Transport

A huge benefit of going on the Magical Tours brand of private tours is that you are provided with an additional chauffeur, travelling in a vehicle exclusively for your party. This means there are no parking worries and no extra fees to be paid when visiting. Your chauffeur and guide simply take you on an adventure around the capital and while your tour guide explores the landmarks with you, the chauffeur is attending the vehicle at all times.

Great Value

Some people hear the words Private Tour and automatically think this will be cost prohibitive. Yet this could not be further from the truth. Families are normally very surprised at how much better value for money is offered by private tours, especially when there are several members in a party to spread the cost. Once all the extra costs are taken into consideration, private tours can often work out at a better per person price than going on a shared tour with other strangers. And for those really looking for an exclusive experience, options are available to upgrade to our VIP Level Tours.

February: the month of love in London

dsc3132

There are so many things to do in London to spoil that special someone.

Valentines day is on a Sunday this year so there is really no better time (or excuse) to go all out and unleash the inner romantic in you!

Here at the London Blog we have your back covered if you are wanting to do something more than the normal box of chocolates and flowers:

1. Take advantage of the weekend:

Some people say that you should be romantic everyday, not just on Valentines Day. So be a man/woman of your word and treat your partner to a weekends worth of Valentines surprises. From a cupid capsule on the London Eye with champagne to the National Art Gallery – London has plenty to offer.

2. The element of surprise: Leave the flowers and chocolates behind

Nothing kills romance more than unoriginality. So if you’re going to do the flowers and chocolates, get them out of the way early – give your partner these gifts at the start of the day. This will keep you partner guessing as to what else you have planned. Your gifts and surprises are your time to show off – so why not take your date to a gallery or museum? Head to the National Art Gallery to view spectacular paintings by the likes of Turner and Constable, Gericault ,Friedrich and 19th century romantics.

3. Be pro Green:

Sometimes some quite time with your partner is all that is required. Make the most of the fact that London is home to stunning Royal Parks such as Green park, Hyde Park, St. James’ Park. If you are feeling adventurous, why not surprise your loved one with a horse back ride in Hyde Park or a romantic stroll through gorgeous scenery in St. james Park: a la 101 Dalmatians.London-intro_3102474k

4: Eating Out:

Piccadilly is home to the Queen’s official supplier of tea. Spoil your date with perfectly hand crafted sandwiches, scones with clotted Somerset cream and a selection of delicious afternoon cakes along with a choice of hot drinks such as tea, chocolate or coffee. So if you want to add that extra element of Royalty, refreshments at Fortnum and Mason are a must!

5. Theatre land:

There are plenty of musicals, comedies and stand out performances that are sure to set pulses racing. A night out at the Comedy Club is a great way to lighten the mood and bring out your inner comedian.

For something a little more soothing: The Burt Bacharach Musical “Close to you” playing at the Criterion Theatre is filled with some of the greatest love songs including I say a little prayer and what the world needs now is Love.
