Tours

London is a buzzing, vibrant city with so much going on, and a rich and complex history to discover. It’s so easy to take a wrong turn or to get distracted by the noise of it all. So, make sure you don’t miss out on any of the Big Smoke’s must-see sights or secret stories with one of my bespoke guided tours.

Each tour is completely private, accommodating you and up to nine of your family and friends. It’s an entirely unique experience, seamlessly blending your interests with my knowledge of London and its fascinating past.

Update: In light of current events, all of my tours are now available on a Pay What You Want basis. Please use my contact form or email RyanCallander@gmail.com to take advantage of this limited-time offer today!
