Who I am.
My name is David Hamed. I’ve been involved in Travel & Tourism most of my adult working life starting out in European destinations as travel coordinator. I qualified as a London Blue Badge Guide in 1997 and I guide tours throughout London and the UK. Although I am mainly a driver guide, I’m equally happy guiding walking tours throughout London, using public transport or combining all of these in a tour.
I am a member of various tour guiding organisations which uphold and maintain the high standards of guiding which London and the Blue Badge represent. London Private Tours only uses professional Blue Badge Guides, the symbol of high standard and quality guiding throughout and will always be recognised by the Blue Badge that they proudly wear.

I offer clients from all over the world a flexible varied, interesting and fun way to see the sights of London ( favourites such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The London Eye, Westminster, and the Tower of London) and to enjoy day tours from the city. I’m able to supply most personal requests and I work with a small selected group of specialist suppliers throughout London and Britain to offer tours for individuals, couples, families and friends up to 8 passengers.
London Private Tours also offers a Cruise Ship, Airport and Eurostar Terminal collection service which can be combined with a tour before or after your hotel check-in. Ask about our special one-off Guided Tour pricing if your Cruise Ship visits or is berthed at a UK port, or if you have a stop-over between flights through any London Airport.

London England is the BEST of the BEST!!! There were 6 of us. Dad walks with a cane. The fantastic journey started when David picked us up at our hotel in a new MB van. So comfortable. He tailored the day on the feed he got from us. Tour of the town, St Paul’s Cathedral,Westminster Abbey. This man (David Hamed) is the most knowledgable tour guide I have ever come across. We were like sponges to get everything we could from him. He had a lot to give. When you book with London Private Tours you do not wait in lines. David gets you right in and sometimes he gets a better price if he buys the tickets instead of you. When we returned from our cruise David picked us up in Southampton and took us to Windsor Castle and all the countryside around (Eton). When it looked like Dad was having some trouble he went all the way back to the front and got a wheelchair for him. So wonderful. He then delivered us to the airport with all our luggage (16 pieces!) I cannot say enough about this company and especially David. We will be back and will make sure we have him although I am sure they are all good at this company.
