Frequently Asked Questions

Are your tours private?

Yes, all our tours are private and can be customized to our guests’ interests.


Do you visit Abbey Road?

This itinerary doesn’t include Abbey Road, since it’s a long journey from Central London. Our guides will be happy to direct you there after your tour for an independent visit.

Does the tour include entry to the Handel & Hendrix museum?

The tour does not include an interior visit to Handel & Hendrix in London, since external guides are not allowed to lead tours inside. We do enjoy its beautiful townhouse facade.
