London sight-seeing buddy!


#1

I have a few days in London where I?m hoping to meet up with some other travellers who want to see some of the sights too. I tend to think that sharing the adventure with others will be a lot more enjoyable than traipsing around on my own! Does anyone know of a good website to use to find other travellers? [br]I?m available to see the sights of London 20 June ? 23 June, and am looking at travelling London ? Glasgow between approx 18 July and 21 July. [br]


#2

I will be free around the same times as that and I am traveling by myself. If you have facebook add me bruin771@hotmail.com[br][br]Olympic Link[br]26th June - 16th July

I’ll be around from July 17 before I leave for my tour on July 21 if anyone is around/keen to explore London with me…

Hey all![br][br]There is an awesome (and free apart from tips) walking tour that leaves from hyde park each day at 11am. I went on it before my tour and it was awesome - covers all the main sites and explains the stories behind them with cheary guides for the best part of 3 hours. It leaves from the Generator at 10am to get to hyde park but you can just meet there in the first place. You can’t miss the tour - guides in red shirts and a bunch of tourists standing around under the wellington statue.[br][br]Hope that helps[br]Cheers[br][br]European Pioneer [br]Apr 30th '09

Thanks for the heads up Clarkie, sounds like a really good idea. Might have to check it out!


#11

P.S. As an added bonus I also met a bunch of people from my tour on the walking trip - just listen out for the word Topdeck or ask around - 95% chance there is someone from Topdeck in the group and everyone will be in the same boat being in a foreign place with no contacts so just be friendly :-)[br][br]European Pioneer [br]Apr 30th '09[br]Red Star Special[br]June 14th '09

Forgot to say sorry. You just rock up to the tour on the day, if you are at some hostels they leave from there, if not just make your way to hyde park corner tube station and walk outside by 11 and you will see everyone under the wellington statue. You do not need to book it if you are in a group smaller than 10 as it is a free tour and they just split up even numbers when you are there. It is totally free and works on a tips only bases so you pay what you think the guide deserves :slight_smile: Goes all around the main sites and explains things and gives you a bunch of new people to chat to![br][br]European Pioneer [br]Apr 30th '09[br]Red Star Special[br]June 14th '09
