If I could give 10 stars, I would. Response of every single question of me was prompt, detailed and courteous. Jeremy Matthews, our historian, guide, driver and companion in and around London was the best, always professional, knowledgeable and considerate. In Edinburgh, they helped us to customize our tours outside of the city. Maggie McLeod, our historian and guide, and... More

We had a fantastic 10-hour tour of Oxford, the Cotswolds and Stratford-Upon-Avon. Our guide Mark was extremely knowledgeable of the locations, the history and just where to go to take in the best the areas had to offer. His commentary was superb; the ride was smooth and time just flew by. Highly recommend touring the UK in style and comfort... More

The tour guide, Richard, was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The driver, Camillo, was courteous and able to negotiate traffic in and out of Paris deftly. Everything happened on time and as agreed upon for the tour.

We generally liked the itinerary and the content of the tour, but the quality of the driver/guide was just average. The driving style was painful, lots of unhappy drivers passing us because of interferences or poor driving style. Not really dangerous for ourselves, but perhaps for others on the road. The comments at each site was average, not very well... More

We used British Tours for our transfer from our flat in London to the cruise terminal in Southampton. Our driver arrived early and loaded our luggage as soon as we were ready. He explained our route to the terminal as we begin the trip. During the travel time, he shared lots of historical information about the areas through which we... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. A personal transfer to your cruise ship - alone or combined with a tour - is indeed a clever way to see some of England's countryside when on a tight schedule! We hope to welcome you back to the UK in the future. Best wishes, The British Tours team More

We had a wonderful trip to the United Kingdom taking in many of the literary and historical sights in London and the countryside, thanks to the efforts of our wonderful tour guide, Pauline, and planner, Jenny. We booked 6 of the tours and they were comprehensive and excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Alan. He was knowledgeable, thoughtful and professional. He interacted well with our kids (ages 12 and 16) and also provided a lot of good adult conversation about the UK. Would definitely recommend this service as a great alternative to one of those highly scheduled bus tours.

Thanks for posting your review about our services. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the tour! Stonehenge and Bath is one of our best sellers - and it's invaluable to have the opportunity of visiting those popular sights with a personal guide, in your own time, at a pace that suits you.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
