#LondonGold - The Biggest Thing We've Ever Done

Earn the chance to run our London business for the rest of 2012, and keep all the profits you earn along the way!



We're giving away London Urban Adventures for the rest of 2012.


For real.





Do you have what it takes to be our local expert in London? To sit at the helm of one of our most successful destinations?


Prove it.


We want to see your idea of the perfect local London experience. Show us a short video of your signature London tour, or if your photos really are worth 1,000 words, give us one of them!

Head on over to our Facebook page, upload your photo or video of your signature local London tour experience, and encourage your friends to vote for you.


What then?


We'll be in London interviewing five lucky finalists - two chosen by Facebook votes and three chosen by the UA judging panel. Interviews will take place in late March, and the winner will by chosen by early April.


And if I'm selected?


Well. Consider yourself the luckiest person in London this year, because you'll have struck #LondonGold of your own! 


The winner will start working officially on 1 May 2012 and carry through the rest of the year with London Urban Adventures. We've already got an awesome group of guides and a fantastically popular set of tours that are good to go, so you'll be responsible for coordinating the business side of things, managing the schedule, and running your brand new custom London Urban Adventures tour.


You'll be outside all summer, living it up in London while the world visits for the big fancy sports games in the summer.


Oh, and the best part? You'll get to keep all the profits the business earns.


So tell us - is this your year? Is 2012 the year you throw off the shackles, stop making travel just for holidays, and make it your life? Whether you're looking for a gap year, a career break, or maybe just the chance to do something different - a "me change", this is your chance.
