Here are answers to questions people often ask us:

How long is a City Treasures tour and what is the cost?
That depends on what you want to do, the number of people in your group and the time you have available. 
  • A quickdip tour lasts around 45 minutes to 1 hour, costs from £175 per group and is ideal for getting peopletogether before a meal or an evening event.  
  • A focustour takes a more leisurely 1½ to 2 hours and costs from £195 per group.  Focus tours aregreat for family groups celebrating a birthday, friends marking a special eventor colleagues looking to do something slightly different as a teamget-together.
  • A halfday adventure takes around 3 hours and costs from £240 per group - perfect for visitors wanting toexplore London and for young explorer tours and children’s adventures.
  • Full daytours last around 6 to 7 hours, including leisurely breaks.
How big can a group be? 
Small groups of up to 10 or 12 work best. This means everyone can hear, getting about is easier and it also gives people a chance to ask questions during the tour. We're happy to work with larger groups, particularly for special events.

Can you organise ameal after our tour?
We always end our tours in area where you’ll find lots of options forrestaurants, bars and cafes. With the exception of some Special Occasion tours, we don't make bookings, but we're happy to offer a few suggestions for places you mightwant to try.

Are entrance fees, transport an refreshments included?
You will need to cover any entrance fees or travel costs (for example if you choose to visit St Paul's Cathedral or the Tower of London or if we use public transport or taxis).  We will give you an indication of these costs before you book.  With the exception of some Special Occasion and London Garden tours, refreshments are not included.

When do your tours run? 
Tours run within three time slots: in the morning up to 1pm, in the afternoon between 1pm and 6pm and in the evening from 6pm onwards.  

Are your tours suitable for children?
We are always happy to welcome children as part of a family group, but please be aware that many of our tours include a fair amount of walking and are best suited to children aged 8 or over. For details of tours designed especially for young butterfly minds, please see our Young Explorer Tours.
