It's easy to book your tour with Kingdom, remember we can customise any tour to make it personal and unique to your interests.
Tour Booking Information
Please read the below information before booking with Kingdom Private Tours. If anything is unclear please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to answer any questions you have. Also, if you have not visited the UK before, we have compiled some useful Travel Advice worth knowing to make you trip more enjoyable and stress-free.
IMPORTANT - By booking your tour with Kingdom Private Tours you agree to the following terms & conditions:
Tour Payment & Refund/Cancellation Policy
We are only asking for a small £100 deposit on all tours for groups of 8 people or less with the balance only being paid at the end of the actual tour taking place direct to the guide. This deposit is fully refundable up to 7 days before the tour is due to take place. After this date unfortunately clients will not be able to get a refund from us and are advised to go though their travel insurance. Note larger groups are asked to pay in full before tours are due to start due to booking extra guides and vans but the same policy applies to them as with the smaller groups but applies to the full tour fee they would have paid. Note entry tickets or event tickets we purchase at your request are non-refundable for any reason whatsoever. Unless the venue or event itself agrees to refund the tickets which we will try to obtain for you but cannot guarantee. Again if the venue or event will not refund the ticket fee clients are advised to claim though their travel insurance.
All Transactions using a Credit Card or Paypal or Bank Transfer carry a 3% charge to be added for fees we pay as per the terms set by the provider. Paying cash British Pounds does not have any fee attached.
Your tour charge includes vehicle hire, driver guide, fuel, parking, and any congestion charges. Lunch and entrance to tour attractions is payable locally and not included in the tour charge. If you wish for the driver guide to escort you around the attractions, you must also pay for their entrance fees. Please note certain UK attractions do not allow guides inside, if this is the case we will tell you all the history before you enter and what to do when inside and then the guide will be waiting for you at the exit at an agreed time. If however it is an English Heritage or National Trust site, as members our drivers can enter free-of-charge.
All clients must take their own responsibility to dress appropriately for the tour they have booked and they must check the weather the morning of the tour before it starts to ensure they are wearing what is required which includes correct footwear, jackets, hats and gloves etc. If you are unsure what to wear given different weather changes or what footwear to wear on any tours please ask us and we will clarify for you.
Attraction and Traffic Issues
On very rare occasions we may face issues that arise when we visit sites like power cuts or staff shortages, etc. These are of course totally outside of our control and we cannot be held responsible for issues like this at any site. But we will always do our best to find a solution to any issues that arise, which may include offering alterative sites/attractions where possible. The same also applies to traffic issues that may arise as we drive around during the tour. We cannot be held responsible for such traffic issues but will always do our best to find the quickest and safest route needed.
Tour Pickup / Return
Although confirmed on your tour itinerary, pickup for the majority of tours from your chosen location will be between 8-9am. If you are unsure of your pickup location for the tour, we can recommend Gloucester Road Tube Station, London, SW7 4SF as it is easy and accessible for both you and our drivers.
Please ensure you are waiting and ready to depart at the agreed pickup site at the time specified. If you are late this may affect your itinerary and result in a shortened trip. Final drop-off time on a one day tour can vary depending on location but is expected to be between 7-9pm the same day.
