We took the one day London tour and the overnight Bath tour. Both were wonderful. We had never been to the UK before and our guide, Nigel, gave us a great introduction to London and England. He was very knowledgeable about English history, was very good at describing what we were seeing, and great company. He even took us to... More

We had the most wonderful tours with our fantastic guide "Nigel", who was always professional, very well dressed and the most knowledgeable and informative guide we have ever had. He always kept us informed as to our plans for the day, what we would see, how long it would take to get there and when we would be returning to... More

We booked an overnight castles tour online after reading reviews and are absolutely delighted by British Tours. After our driver Alistair picked us up, we spent 20 minutes discussing what we'd really like to see with Alistair making suggestions as to how the 2 days would go. So we went firstly to Rochester & visited the cathedral & castle ruin.... More

Our concierge worked with British Tours to set up this trip. They were very helpful in setting up just what we wanted to see. Our driver, Richard, was right on time. He was very pleasant and shared a lot of information and history about both locations. He made certain we saw all of the sites in Bath we wanted to... More

This is not a normal trip listed on their website, but upon inquiry British Tours were able to set up a driver and tour guide to meet us at the Edinburgh airport and spend a day touring the historic city of Edinburgh. We had toured with BT around London before, so we were very pleased that they could accommodate us... More

My husband Dan and I booked a day trip from Paris to Normandy through British Tours, Ltd. I had been referred to them by a well-traveled friend in the U.S. We were not disappointed! In fact, we were thrilled! Our driver/guide, Ludovic Brunet, picked us up promptly at our hotel in a comfortable, luxurious car. We loved the fact that... More

Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed visiting Windsor and Hampton Court with Geoff! Throughout the day he shared funny anecdotes, sad stories, interesting facts and his marvelous take on all things historical. Even though we've visited London several times before, I never knew that tall skinny building was the "shot tower" or the dog running alongside the horses... More

Our tour guide, Anthony, was very fun, energetic and knowledgeable about every site he took us too. He was also very patient because we had just arrived from the airport before the start of our tour. Anthony took us to all of the sites we requested and drove us to some must see areas around London to experience the English... More

Our tour guide, Mike, drove us to Highclere Castle. Mike was very knowledgeable about the filming of Downtown Abbey and information regarding the original history of the castle. His cordiality and wit made the tour exceptionally good and enjoyable.
