Introducing Totally Tailored Learning.

We are proud to present a series of one-to-one, fully interactive (and fun!) videocall courses conducted by our wonderful guides.

Try 'History of Art 101' with Beatrice,
'Churchill in 4 hats' with Antony, 'Tudors' with Danny, 'Badass Women of History' with Jasmin or 'How to perform a monologue' with Linus.

Each course consists of four, one-hour private video call sessions with your favourite guide. All courses can be worked around your or your kids' schedule. And as no two learners are the same, your course content will be Totally Tailored 😉 to you.

For more information on all of our exciting courses, visit our brand new Totally Tailored Learning page, in the link on bio.

Tower Bridge was opened in 1894.

Competition winner, Horace Jones designed its hydrochrolically powered bascules allow large ships to pass through.

It's free to cross and will take you from Bermondsey on the south side to Tower Hamlets (and the Tower of London) on the North.

Seeing it lit up at dusk like this is a Totally Tailored favourite.

We are proud to say we won Best Private Tour company at the Travel and Hospitality awards 2020.

This is the Forth Rail Bridge.

Take Courage.
We've passed this Victorian Beer advertisement 100s of times during tours, but its words hold particular meaning today.
With the announcement of travel bans our business was almost wiped out overnight.
Courage is needed because we intend to pull through, so we can continue doing what we do best, showcasing our beautiful city.
If you'd like to support our future, we are encouraging people to buy giftcards.
This allows you to buy a tour now but redeem it anytime in the next 18 months. And you can have 10 percent off with the code friends10. .

Take Courage & support small business.

We are keeping calm and carrying on here in Edinburgh today, and still operating tours of a, rather uncrowded, Edinburgh castle.
