United Kingdom and Ireland Private Tours and Small Group Tours

United Kingdom & Ireland Private and Small Group Guided Tours

Famed for their music, theater, literature and sport, these small island nations have had an outsize influence on the world
Situated off the coast of western Europe, the United Kingdom’s four countries—England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland—and the Republic of Ireland have long stood apart from the European mainland, defined by the mingling of their native Celts and Anglo-Saxons with visitors like the Norse, Romans, and Normans.

These unique dynamics are reflected in the UK and Ireland, which all bear distinct customs and traditions but also share a long history of cultural innovation—ranging from illuminated manuscripts to Shakespeare to soccer—not to mention a lively and welcoming pub culture.

Such an interesting and well-informed tour and guide (and great weather to boot)! Peter was extremely nice, super smart, and well-spoken with a wealth of knowledge about City of London history, politics, and economics. Context Tours take you one step deeper into the place and topic, which is perfect for my nerdy family who loves to walk, but maybe less so for those looking for a very broad/general tour of London, those less comfortable walking for three hours, or those with very young kids.
Guide was very knowledgeable and amiable.
Our time at the British Museum with Alan was a highlight of our trip! His background in Classics and Art made him a perfect tour guide, and the three hours flew by, as he shared all sorts of anecdotes with us. The British Museum is so enormous, and we knew it'd be helpful to have someone show us some of it. Although we'd signed up for a small group tour, our family of 3 was solo with Alan. He also did a great job of engaging our 14-year-old who loves history. Fabulous tour with Alan!
