Q: How do I go on a tour?
A: Book your ticket on this web site and then arrive at the start time at the starting point of the tour that you want to go on. Then present your e-ticket or booking order number to the tour guide. Your e-ticket and booking order number is sent automatically to you to the email address that you give us when making the booking.
You may also be able to buy a ticket "on the gate" at the start time and meeting point of our tours but this is subject to availabilty. Some of our tours will be sold out if you arrive without pre-booking and others will have spaces available. These spaces if available will usually be offered at a discount price to our usual price of £10 for an adult and £5 for a child.

A: Your tour guide will give it to you at the beginning of the tour.

Q: How long do the tours last, how far do we walk and is any special footwear or clothing recommended.
A: They last approximately 2 1/2 hours depending on the size of the tour group. All of our tours are in Central London and on flat terrain.

Q: What happens if it is raining?
A: All of our scheduled tours go ahead whatever the weather, except in heavy rain, snow or ice where we will notify customers of any cancellation and offer a rescheduled tour date. But the beauty of London Premier Walking Tours flexible ticket is that it is valid for 30 days so you can pick any one of the tours on any day. If you wake up and it is raining then just go on a different day of your choice. It rains in London far less often than people think and most of London's rain is in the evenings so you will find that most tours are rain free, and some are very sunny!

Q: Are tickets refundable or transferable?
A: You can transfer your tickets(s) to another person(s) if you wish, for them to use. Tickets have a unique booking number code but are unnamed so usable by anybody presenting the ticket to the tour guide. Because our tickets are valid for thirty days and therefore dates are flexible we would not usually offer refunds. However, we are a very reasonable and customer focused tour company so in exceptional circumstances and with supporting evidence from the customer we will at our discretion offer refunds.
Q: Are the tours safe and well planned?
A: Our tour guides follow a specially designed route and will give a short talk regarding personal safety at the beginning of the tour.
