About the tour

We start where we last left off, venturing down to the River Thames with some parting views of Big Ben and a fantastic reveal of the London Eye. Our journey will take us to the very front door of New Scotland Yard and the Ministry of Defence which is right next door. The Ministry's rather anonymous inter-war edifice of white stone contains a hidden secret - below ground is hidden the ancient wine cellar of the former Whitehall Palace! Speaking of secrets... the CIA is rumoured to have an office on the upper floors so keep your voice down when we get there!


Meet your local guide

Antony

We are incredibly lucky to have Antony Robbins show us around London! Writer, speaker, and broadcaster on BBC Radio London, Antony wears many hats. One he loves to wear most is his guide hat, having shown thousands around London, uncovering its mysteries and showcasing its beauties. He proudly wears the coveted Blue Badge, a mark of his touring prowess.

Antony has been guiding since Jan 2017


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to London with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from London. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

The majority of your tip goes directly to support the guide's hard work, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.

Hey Antony! Really loved the tour! Sadly had to dip in and out as was at a friends house with children distracting - but from what I saw it was really fun and informative. Hope to catch another without the distractions! Take care jo x

My mom, aunt, and I have done many of these virtual tours together. Antony is the absolute best! Charming, informative, with a sense of humor. I would tour with him anywhere.
