Corporate Events and Tours
London Guided Tours can help you with many elements of your conference or event.
We understand that your time is valuable and that much of your time will be dedicated to arranging meetings and the main thrust of your conference.

Here are a couple of examples of events and tours we have arranged for corporate groups:
225 delegates for an annual conference
A team of 5 handpicked guides and 5 luxury coaches picked up from the central London hotel and took the group on a short panoramic tour of London – seeing all the major sights, from Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, to St Pauls Cathedral and Tower Bridge. At Embankment pier, they were met by an exclusive luxury Thames river boat for a Champagne reception. As the boat set off, the live jazz band played and the group enjoyed a wonderful meal, whilst cruising down the Thames. After lunch the team returned to the hotel to get changed for the evening awards ceremony at Hampton Court Palace in the evening. Again the guides and coaches were waiting for them to ensure that they all arrived at the award ceremony on time and in good spirits, and swiftly got them back to the hotel at the end of the evening.
Often the partners of the conference delegates are invited to stay in London. London Guided Tours ensures that the partners have a memorable and fun day, whilst their partners are busy at work!
Morning panoramic tour of London, seeing all the main sights of London – sometimes we include a guided tour inside one of the great sights of London, Westminster Abbey, British Museum or the National Gallery before lunch. After a light lunch the partners have some time to do some shopping before having an afternoon cream tea at Harrods, Fortnum and Masons or the top floor of the National Portrait Gallery.
We have also arranged private visits before / after closing time at the Tower of London for a private viewing of the Crown Jewels with one of the Beefeaters and tours of the kitchens at Windsor Castle... almost anything is possible...
Private Dining is really popular – we have contacts with excellent restaurants who will give you an exclusive dining room just for your group. This is especially good if you want to make any speeches or if you want to add in an extra element such as a quiz or a wine bluff (like “Call my Bluff” but with wine!)
Even if the budget for this year is limited we can arrange really fun events which will cost very little per person – some of the most popular include our walks, whether you choose a historic pub crawl or go for the gory Jack the Ripper tour, your group will have a great night out.
We also find that, although your team may have been working in the area for years, sometimes they do not know the history of the area – we can arrange a historical walk of your area which will fascinate your group – opening their eyes to what is around them everyday.
Private Hire Dinner Cruise
These are really popular – start the evening being picked up from the hotel or office with a short panoramic tour of London. At the riverside your exclusive hire Boat is waiting and you are welcomed onboard with champagne. As the boat sets off, you have a chance to sip your champagne on the top deck before coming down for a 3 course dinner with wine. You may even wish to have a DJ or a band onboard to help the evening go with a swing.
