James Bond tourIt’s been over a week since the new James Bond film “Spectre” premiered, and already the film has grossed in excess of $294 million. I haven’t been to see it yet, busy traveling, but it’s on the to-see list for the coming week.

For those who would like to channel their inner spy and experience the London of the world-famous 007, Sceptre’s James Bond 007’s London vacation might be the perfect option.

The “James Bond 007, Spies & Villains Private Black Cab Tour” top secret tour takes participants around London looking at the James Bond London film location sites. Visits include Ml5 and Ml6, stops outside Blades fencing club, Le Circle Casino, The Hotel Europe and more. Real spies play a big part of this tour as well, and stops feature drop zones and meeting places, homes, and offices of spies that roamed London. This is a great fun-packed, laughter-filled tour suitable for the whole family; travelers are advised to put on their trench coats and follow their guide!

In true Bond style, travelers will stay in luxury at the five-star InterContinental London Park Lane. Come cocktail time, perhaps a visit to Duke’s Bar is in order. The legendary bar is internationally renowned for its famous martinis. Frequented by James Bond author Ian Fleming, the bar is said to be the inspiration for the classic line, ‘shaken, not stirred’.
