Our personalized orientation experience, led by a Context docent, is the perfect introduction for newcomers to London, and is designed to answer practical questions about life in the UK's capital city. We will begin our experience in your hotel lobby or apartment where our docent, a resident of an expert on London, will explain the geographical layout of the city and how this relates to the area where you are staying. We can discuss your itinerary and help you make any last minute plans, as well as answer all your questions, from what is the best day to visit certain museums and monuments to how the London Underground works. We will bring along maps and guidebooks to the city to help you get acquainted with the places and things that you will be seeing, and will offer tips on local customs and suggestions for dining, shopping, insider events, and concerts. We will then head outside for a stroll, allowing for a discussion of the area's history and an opportunity to absorb the neighborhood ambiance under the guidance of a seasoned local. We will stop occasionally to talk about historic buildings and monuments, or maybe to go over how the tube or 'Boris Bikes' work. We will point out the best markets and cafes, and certainly where the best pubs for a relaxing pint can be found! We will leave you with maps, a little bit of history, and a better sense of how best to navigate the sprawling metropolis that is London. Our supplier is committed to providing intellectually curious and adventurous travelers with specialist guides and professionals for an in depth cultural experience.
