Private Guided Walking and Driving Tours of London and beyond

Are you planning a trip to London? If so let me help you make the most of your time and allow me to be your private guide to this great city. I'm Ian Grover and I'm a fully qualified tour guide, registered in London with the City of Westminster, and a member of the City of Westminster Guide Lecturers Association (CWGLA).


I offer a wide choice of Walking Tours and Driving Tours throughout London and beyond. These cover a variety of themes and take in the most fascinating areas of this unique city and its surroundings. The tours are booked privately for those who prefer a more personal experience. Ideal for individuals, families or small groups who would rather work within their own schedule.


Because these are private tours we are not restricted to the rigid timetables of organised tours. You choose the time, place and duration and I will be pleased to be your personal host and guide as required. I am fully licenced and insured as a Private Hire Driver by Transport for London (TFL) and all driving tours are booked through an officially licenced Private Hire Operator.

London Walking Tours

London is a city whose history spans over two thousand years. Within its borders are some of the most important and iconic buildings and landmarks in Britain. In 1716, the poet and dramatist John Gay published his Trivia: or The Art of Walking the Streets of London. His advice warned of cheats, pickpockets and wig-snatchers and how the walker should resist the harlot's lure.


Nowadays I'm pleased to report that walking in London is a far more civilised affair. Let me invite you to join me on one of my private walking tours and discover the well known, and not so well known sights of this great city. You can choose from one of my suggested tours, or if you have a particular interest I will be pleased to design a bespoke tour for you.


My walks fall into two categories. For a general overview of the "must see" sights of London my Highlights Walks are an ideal way to introduce you to the most well known and iconic London landmarks. Thes walks generally last around two hours and are a great way to discover the real London through the eyes of a local.


I also offer a selection of Themed Walks covering a range of interests exploring various aspects of London's past. Whatever your interest you're sure to find a walk to whet your appetite.
