He will drive you to your Hotel / Apartment in a car fully equipped for your kids’ safety. You will then discover your British home and the little surprises we prepared in your room.

Our private chauffeur will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the meeting point of your multicultural food tour. London’s culinary culture is difficult to describe as it is a melting pot of so many influences – ultimately it has its own unique identity. Follow our expert guide through the streets of China Town, Bangladeshi Brick Lane, Afro-Carribean Brixton Market, and more! A real round-the-world trip in just 2 hours. Along the way, you will taste specialities from all these cuisines – get your tastebuds ready to explore the world’s food!

If you are still hungry for lunch, we will give you recommendations of restaurants in the area. You will then reach Shoreditch, in the East End London. Formerly a predominantly working class area, Shoreditch has been transformed over the last few years. It now houses many Art galleries, media businesses and it is world-famous for its street art masterpieces. You will meet a street artist and experience a 1-hour tour around London’s East End to give you a feel of the different shapes and styles street art can take. Then it‘s time to try out spray painting yourselves (legally of course!), creating your own family masterpiece.

After your visit our private chauffeur will drive you back to your hotel.

We will provide you with some recommendations of children-friendly restaurants within walking distance of your hotel. A nice way to finish your first day in London!

In the afternoon, you will become a member of a special police team and use modern forensic techniques to solve a criminal case! DNA research, fingerprinting, magnifying glasses and microscopes… use them all to catch the thief!
