After browsing Heathrow's website, I see they offer a concierge service. Since I have never traveled abroad before, I thought it might be worth it. I can't find a cost though. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it and if it would be silly to spend the money or not. Thanks!

Heathrow: Premium Heathrow services

If It cost anything like this much I'd say its a complete waste of money.

There are always loads of people in Heathrow ready to steer people in the right direction. the airport is well signposted too. As long as you arrive in time for your departure there shouldn't be any problems.

no. you will just be following the crowds from your flight going towards immigration and then queuing with everybody from your flight unless you have an EU passport and in which case you join another queue. then follow the signs for baggage re claim. depending on where you are staying you should follow signs for the Taxi's / car pick up / underground.

Who are you flying with and where are you staying ??

I'll be flying in on Lufthansa. My final destination is with a family friend in Basingstoke, but it looks like she'll be picking us up.

ah ok that should be quite easy then. Your friend can monitor the flight and assume you will clear immigration / customs and baggage about 45 mins after the flight has landed. once you go through the green customs channel then you are on the public meet and greet area. Lufthansa fly into terminal 1 but I don't see them flying from the US. Where are you flying in from ?? maybe you are on a code share flight.... ??

We're leaving from the U.S., but changing planes in Canada. What's a code share flight? And thank you for your help so far! I do appreciate it.

Lufthansa -*Members

its when you book a flight with one airline but you are actually on another airlines flight... when I looked at Hearthrow flights in Lufthansa only show flights in from Europe..maybe the flight is actually operated by Air Canada ?
Heathrow: Destinations and airlines | Routes and contact details
Your ticket will have a flight code that usually makes it easy to identify who you are flying with...
Air Canada flies into Terminal 3 so I would look at your ticket before you fly so you can inform your friend in advance !!

Our itinerary says we do indeed fly into terminal three. And upon further look, it does mention Air Canada too.

the airport has a 'meeting point' in each arrivals hall where you can plan to meet your friends. Be aware that if the arrivals hall is very big there may be two meeting points. they won't be so far that you can't quickly walk between them both though. I haven't beet to terminal 3 for a while so I don't know if there are just 1 or 2.
