"So many Londoners take this amazing city for granted. There are so many stories to tell about London, stories concerning it's iconic and historical sites and also it's back roads and alleys. There is nothing better than sharing true London culture with people from all over the world and filling you in on the most fun and juicy stories!"

Why Westminster?

London is a city that can seem daunting at first, with such a large area covering dozens of miles, it's difficult to know where to begin. Our Royal Tours will take you through some of our most famous landmarks around Westminster, while simultaneously exploring all the hidden gems that many tourists often miss.

From Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square, our guides will take you on a journey through hundreds of years of history and you'll understand how much this part of our city has influenced what London is like today.

Vocuher
I would like to take your tour but it is already fully booked. Is there a way I can do the tour?

Our tours are often sold out very quickly. If the date you requested is not available, please do not hesitate to email us and we can see if there is anything we can do. We cannot promise but we will try our best to sort something out for you. We may also be able to arrange a Private Tour for your group.

Is there a lot of walking?

To join our tour, you must wear comfortable shoes. There will be around 2 hours of walking/standing, but it is not too difficult and is broken up between stops. During the duration of the tour we will walk about a mile and a half. The guide walks at the pace of the tour members, you will never be rushed.

How many people max are on this tour?

We take 14 people maximum. If you are more than 14 people, please do not hesitate to email us and we will try to see if we can accommodate.

I cannot find a way to print the confirmation. Is it OK if I have it on my phone?

You do not have to print your voucher. A confirmation on your phone will be fine!

If I purchase a voucher as a gift, or am given a voucher how long is it valid for?

All of our vouchers expire one year from the date of purchase.

What if it rains or I change my plans?

Unfortunately, the weather is unpredictable in Las Vegas. Rain is rare but the hot sun is not, bring an umbrella and we will try to be more indoors than out, but there are areas that outside is a must. We do not issue refunds as per our terms and conditions. We also inform you that we never cancel a booking even if we have only 2 people! However we do reserve the right to cancel the tour if we feel the weather is extreme, and we cannot run the tour due to this for more info see our Terms and Conditions: https://www.secrettours.com/terms-and-conditions/

Can I pay the tour in cash?

You must book directly on our website. We do not accept cash payments. Our online payment is safe, secured and SSL protected.

Why do we need to pay for booking fee?

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
