What you'll do
London is only truly experienced when you venture off the well-worn tourist track so that you can see, hear and feel the place the same way a local does. Only then will you get close to the true essence, to the true heart, to the very fabric of the place you are in and have an experience like no other. We'll leave the famous main sights to the side and are going to peek behind the scenes of glitzy mainstream London away from the tourist areas. We'll see local communities, walk along an exotic street market and discover urban oddities. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge about London's modern urban history, about its current problems and future developments. My secret London tour will turn you into a proper Londoner for one afternoon. Also, there's a nice break at a market where we can grab some lunch (not included in the price). I am very much looking forward to having you on my London safari. Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London, show you something to make you change your mind. Fabian
I'm an urban planner who has been living in London for more than eight years. I love exploring the modern Babylon off the beaten track and I am very enthusiastic about sharing my urban and odd discoveries with you. The incredible history and diversity of London still inspires me every single day. I believe that if you only stick to the well-known touristy areas that are listed in your guide book you are going to miss out on the real buzz that acutally defines the spirit of London.
