Private Tours

Welcome to the UK! Where do you begin your trip? We know the best places for you to start.

You have a limited amount of precious time visiting the UK, and you want to make the most of every minute.

Planning your holiday here can feel overwhelming. There is so much to do, so much to see, and if you have never landed here before, or even if you have, without a trusted native guide you may miss out on the most authentic and memorable locations.

At A La Carte Tours & Events, we know this country inside out, back to front and upside down. We truly understand the treasures of London and beyond, the very best in British food, drink, and more. All of our guides are highly qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guides, and not only that…

As we grew up here, it means that we know what’s good, what’s great, what’s exceptional… and what is not. A La Carte Events & Tours has a tremendous library of the best that London has to offer you.

Our private food and drink tours are specialist, hands on experiences, providing you with the tools for making extraordinary memories and letting you in on our best kept secrets.

As well as the classic landmarks that you simply have to visit when in the UK, everything we do is innovative and unique, giving you a more meaningful experience and making the most of your valuable time.
