The best sightseeing spots in London

Primrose Hill – a cityscape view

Ask your local host to take you to this beautiful space of greenery for some even more beautiful views. Located in the borough of Camden, surrounded by the district, Primrose, this spot will show you a clear skyline view of the city. Not only this, but you’ll be completely surrounded by grassy parklands, as it’s part of the famous Regent’s Park. Locals love to come here, taking their pets for a walk, or having picnics on the hillside watching the sunset. So put on your trainers and get ready to climb 65 meters of hillside; but don’t worry it’s not difficult.

Be dazzled by the many colors of Neal’s Yard

Hidden away in the city centre, in Covent Garden to be exact, you’ll find the cute and colourful corner known as Neal’s Yard. You may know Neal’s Yard as being an organic skincare and remedy store, and you’re right. This corner is home to the flagship store, as well as other boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. It’s very small and hard to find, so your local host will take you there. Who knows, maybe you could grab a slice of pizza and a glass of wine while you’re there, and take in it’s bright buntings, blue windows, citrus orange bricks, and fuchsia doors. It’s definitely a picture-worthy sightseeing spot in London.

Big Ben, Parliament and Westminster Abbey

True iconic landmarks of London, your trip wouldn’t be the same if you didn’t visit these spectacular sights. These old buildings are what make London so astounding; Westminster Abbey in all its grandeur, Parliament with its political background and Big Ben standing tall and proud above the rest. If that doesn’t intrigue you, maybe the architecture of these stunning developments will catch your eye, dating back to 1016.

Zaanse Schans Windmills & Photography Tour

We had a wonderful day with Roelof in Amsterdam. We booked a private tour with Roelof that began on arrival in Amsterdam after an overnight flight. He was accommodating to our specific requests and very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Roelof. Jeff and Kelly

The Real Souks Experience: Artisans & Their Crafts

Hallo,
eind september begin oktober ben ik met mijn dochter naar Marakesh gegaan .
Dit is een fanatisch en geweldige oude stad met zeer veel oudheden en interessante dingen om te doen.
Echter ! Je zult een vreemde stad nooit zo goed en volledig zien als door de ogen van een goede gids.
en dat is precies wat wij hadden, een zeer goede, vriendelijke en vooral interessante gids, die meer wist te vertellen dan het verhaaltje dat ze meestal hebben.
wij wilden twee dagdelen bezichtiging bij hem boeken, en wij kenden hem niet , puur op gevoel, echter hij stuurde ons een mailtje terug, waarin hij zeer vriendelijk in uit legde dat dat waarschijnlijk teveel zou zijn voor ons.
hij wilde liever een tocht goed doen, dan twee af te rafelen.
hij heeft toen in zijn eigen tijd ons meer laten zien, en veel meer uitgelegd dan de basis dingen, hij vertelde ook wat te doen bij taxi's etc.
mocht ik nog een keer terug gaan, en dat gaat zeker gebeuren, dan pak ik weer Khalil als gastheer,
echt een prima vent.
ps, hij heeft zelf ook een riad in de oude stad, misschien interessant in combinatie met stadsrondleidingen.
groeten van Danielle en Alain

Best of Taipei: Highlights & Hidden Gems

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Chia-Chien. She gave us a great overview of the history of the founding of Taiwan/ROC as we visited notable sites. Her choice of points of interest met with my hopes for the tour - and she was flexible and generous with her time. I'd highly recommend touring with this kind and cheerful guide.
