The new year means a new beginning for us here at the Evan Evans office, and what better way to kick off 2019 than by releasing some brand-new London experiences for you to enjoy?
We spent 2018 listening closely to visitors and learning about the moments they treasured the most here in the UK. One thing our customers had in common was that the smaller, intimate experiences were the ones that ended up being the most memorable. The chance to meet like-minded people and explore unique locations together was what made their trips special.
Our New ‘Small Group Tours’
This year, we wanted to capture that experience and provide you with the trip of a lifetime.
These special new experiences give you the chance to explore key attractions in a cosy, exclusive tour setting. Learn the secrets of London’s historic past on our unique walking tour experiences, or hop on board our luxury Mercedes-Benz minibuses to venture out to some of the best sites in the country.
Smaller group sizes mean you’ll have the space to get on a first-name basis with the people you’re traveling with. You’ll also be able to spend more time with our expert tour guides, who can give you the inside scoop on some of the country’s most fascinating historical attractions. Get off the beaten track and experience a new side of the UK, from Cold War history to artisanal gin tasting.
Read on to discover our great new selection of Small Group Tours.
