Context London's private full-day tour is completely customizable. Typical itineraries follow a theme: royal London, art and collectors, architecture, urban planning.... you get the picture. This reservation form is primarily a mechanism for you to tell us about yourself and to create an account in our system. The tour begins at our base rate however, we will need to charge extra for car service, or special access to specific sites, etc. We will apprise you of any additional costs beyond our base rate and will await your approval on those before processing your order and charging your credit card.

Please use the following form to tell us the type of walk you're looking for, your interests, etc.; and we will get back with you to organize a special itinerary based on your needs. Please keep in mind that Westminster Abbey is closed to visitors on Sundays, if you are considering including this in your itinerary.

Please note that clients requesting a full day that includes either the Tower of London or the Royal Mews will be charged for advance tickets in order to avoid lines at the time of the tour. If you are interested in visiting Buckingham Palace, keep in mind that the palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty the Queen. Visitors are only allowed during specific times of the year - normally during the summer.

About Us

The Context vision is to create an atmosphere—a context, if you will—for curious travelers to engage with local experts; to give them access to places and cultures that might otherwise remain out of sight to the casual visitor; to invite them off the tourist track and into the real life of the people, history, and heritage that make these cultural capitals amazing. With no more than six people, you'll participate in an intimate, hands-on, conversational experience. No Tour Guides - Our docents are first and foremost scholars or specialists, with MAs, Ph.D.s, or other terminal degrees in their fields of study.
