I selected British Tours based on reviews on Tripadvisor. We spent 3 days in London with two different guides. One was very good but the other one was just average if not bad. He was not that knowledgeable as we would expect. He seemed not to have enough schooling on the history, art and local landmarks. We were also asked... More

We spent two days with our wonderful driver/guide Rod. On day one we went to Stonehenge and Bath, even though it was an eleven hour tour it flew by. Rod was a great driver and tour guide, he was very informed about all the sites we saw. He was also very flexible about what we wanted to see and do.... More

June 7, 2014, start at Victoria Station & end at London Eye. A very long day, plan to buy your own lunch, but you see many different attractions in London, including drive-bys while on the coach. Tour Guide was David. Very clear & knowledgeable & answers all questions. However, he should have told everyone where we were headed next, so... More

We had a wonderful 4 hour private tour of Hampton Court with Andrew. Andrew was friendly, professional and knowledgable. He picked us up promptly from our hotel and drove us out of central London to Hampton Court. After the beautiful drive we arrived just after it opened. This allowed Andrew to take us around with almost no one else there.... More

What a wonderful, leisurely, informative, and exciting tour we experienced with Mark of British Tours!

Mark was entertaining, knowledgeable, and accommodating. This was well worth the price.... More
