What is a private tour?

Private transfers from London
Private tours offer comfort & flexibility

Private tours to popular sights within England offer an exclusive tour experience. The real difference with private tours and group tours is in the numbers. First the number of people you will share the tour with and second the number of pounds you’ll be spending.

Most large group tours will use an air-conditioned coach and take around 50 guests on the tour. This is a very cost effective way to visit attractions and take tours and has many benefits.

What do you get with a private tour?

Private tours only take the amount of people you book for. These are run in luxury vehicles with a meet and greet service and are door to door.

The advantages of private tours include personalised service, flexibility to build your own tour or adapt an existing tour, the small vehicles are often quicker to get to places on the tour and can go where large coaches cannot. As the world continues to deal with Covid, private tours offer you transport that is only shared by you and the driver/guide.

Private tours are more expensive, but you get so much more too.

Driver guide on a private tour

You can either book private tours with just a driver who will drop you at your chosen destinations and wait for you to then move to the next attraction. You can also choose a driver/guide who will be knowledgeable in your chosen tours/attractions and be able to give you a much more personal and in-depth experience.

Small Group Tours

The final option is a mid-way point between private tours and large group tours. These are called small group tours and are a popular alternative choice; these tours are made up of around 16 people (as opposed to the typical 52 seat tourist coach) and provide a good compromise of more personalised experience, but without being exclusively private.

On this page you will find the most popular private tours, private transfers, private transfer tours and small group tours.

Private transfer tours

Cruise or airport transfers. Choose between a straight transfer or adding on tour destinations of your choice. With flexibility on your private tour it can be on your own schedule.

Cruise Ship

Cruise transfers & tours

Private cruise transfers from your cruise port to Central London hotel or choice of London airports offer a smooth and simple service with meet and greet, beginning your holiday stress-free.

Another option is to take a cruise tour transfer, allowing you to extend your holiday and combine an easy meet and greet service with a top guided (or non-guided) sightseeing experience at some world-class destinations in England.

The Cotswolds, Stonehenge, Winchester, Windsor, Bath, and many more places are available on a private tour.

You can choose your vehicle according to size and cost; we offer a range of door to door tour transfer options between your hotel and your cruise terminal.

Think private airport transfers might be expensive? Actually a private transfer arranged in advance can work out cheaper than a black taxi.

In addition, using this service you get meet and greet too from your hotel or airport, taking all the stress out of getting to and from the airport.

We have a range of vehicles to choose from according to numbers and luggage; even options for groups from 8 - 35.

You can also turn your private transfer from Heathrow into a private tour transfer for visiting top sights in England. For example, you can visit Stonehenge, Windsor, Bath, Cotswolds, Oxford, and more on a private airport transfer.

Stonehenge private tours

Stonehenge can be done independently, but due to its rather remote location many people find a tour from London to be both practical and informative. Public Stonehenge tours are readily available, but if you would prefer a more intimate experience, a private Stonehenge tour with driver/guide might be the right option for you.

You have several options for visiting Stonehenge privately; you can choose from a simple guided tour from London, or combine with other popular destinations such as Bath or Windsor.

The other ever-popular option is to take a Special Access tour; this tour costs more money because it allows you the option of going inside the inner circle, and many people find these tours to be very experiential and a once-in-the-lifetime memory.

Private tours in the Cotswolds remain popular

The Cotswolds is an area easily accessible from London in a day trip, but also covers a large area - north to south not far off 100 miles.

For this reason taking a private tour is a popular option, especially with a guide who can really bring the area to life with history, anecdotes and information on this much loved quintessentially English region.

Villages such as Burford and Bourton-on-the-Water or the Slaughters as well as market towns such as the memorable Stow-on-the-Wold, will entrance you.

With a private tour you can linger for as long as you want; if you find somewhere that appeals.

Meander down country lanes, through villages of honey coloured stone, watching rivers wind their way through stunning countryside.

Alternative small group tours

Small group tours are a fantastic day out using small, comfortable vehicles, for up to 16 individuals. You'll enjoy an intimate guiding experience, and get to travel down country lanes not used by the big touring coaches.

Small and Friendly tours offer a nice balance between coach tours and totally private tours, and are competitively priced too.

A range of tours are on offer for the most popular places in England including Stonehenge, Windsor and Bath, Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Canterbury, Avebury, Glastonbury and the Cotswolds.
