London by Night Independent Sightseeing Tour with Private Driver
Most itineraries involve a route that takes in the top London sights, so you can get out of the car to walk around, perhaps entering some attractions at your own expense, before venturing on to the next site on your list.
Visit Piccadilly, the busy street that boasts several big-name London shops and hotels like Fortnum & Mason (open till late!) and the Ritz, and see Trafalgar Square when its daytime crowds and pigeons are replaced by party goers and lit-up monuments.
Be sure to take a walk around Soho, London’s proudly bohemian neighborhood, where you’re guaranteed to see a diverse bunch of Londoners enjoying a night out. The epicenter of London’s vibrant gay community, Soho also boasts an eclectic mix of businesses, from bustling Chinatown restaurants to seedy shops to trendy bars crammed full of media darlings from offices nearby.
Neighboring Soho is London’s ‘theatreland’ – the West End. This frenzied and fast-paced area is home to London’s finest theaters, such as the Adelphi and Theatre Royal, and is most definitely worth checking out.
Whatever route you decide to take, consider fitting in the Thames Embankment. Your driver can recommend a famous riverside London pub here, or point you in the right direction for a stroll along the Embankment’s south side. Following the Thames path, pass beautifully illuminated attractions like the London Eye, Festival Hall or the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben on the other side of the river.
After three hours of independent sightseeing around London at night, your private driver will drop you off back at your hotel.

Where to start....the tour company tried to switch our pickup time from 8pm to 7pm. When I called to confirm we were only available at 8pm they confirmed the driver would be able to pick us at that time. Our driver, Tim I believe that was his name didn't show until after 8:15, and opened with where do you want to go and why did you cancel the pick up for 7pm...We booked this tour because we had less than 24 hours in London and wanted a guided tour by someone who knew the area and could show us all the key locations. If I knew London then I wouldn't have needed a tour...When I reminded him that the tour was for 3 hours, he seemed to be stretching the time by driving by the same landmarks 4-5 times. When brought up other historical landmarks that we'd like to see, he had to map quest to the location. At one point he seemed lost and I had to help with directions by my phone. I would never suggest to tour to anyone. It was horrible and a complete waste of money
Our driver Ahmed W184 was amazing! We ended up taking almost two hours going through passport control which made us late for our tour. Ahmed worked with us to meet us in a different location so we wouldn't waste anymore time. He then tailored our tour to meet our needs, hitting all the spots we wanted to see in the time we had. We had such a good time and his company and knowledge of the city history made for a memorable excursion. We only had a long layover in London and wanted to maximize our time, Ahmed ensured our needs were met. I highly recommend taking this tour.
Driver never showed. Calls to find out why resulted in being told no such booking existed. They did, howver, manage to charge my credit card for the tour.
My parents and I took this tour and weren't sure of how it would turn out. However, Flavius took us to a lot of places we had not even heard of before even after having visited London a couple of times and also gave us many insider tips. The trip was amazing overall. Highly recommended
Poor review doesn't reflect the driver who was very nice. He was called into service when our driver didn't show up, for supposed car trouble. I had to call several times over and hour and 5 minutes and was told someone would be there soon. No one called to inform us there was a problem. Driver used Google maps to drive to sights however didn't know any of the history and we stopped the tour after 2 hours. Would recommend calling an Uber driver and working out a tour. This company lacked professionalism and attentiveness.
Ahmed was amazing. He made sure we got the full experience we were looking for. Ahmed explained everything above and beyond what we were expecting. This was an amazing tour with an just as an amazing tour guide.
After confirming 24 - 48 hours in advance per their request and verifying the 8pm pick up. they never showed up and when the hotel called about the no show, they said they did not have a driver available for my tour. By this time it was too late to schedule something else. Thought it would be a great way to end our stay in London we were so wrong. Ruined our last night in London.
Be sure to have an agenda of what you would like to see before starting the tour, or you will waste time making a decision.
