Our initial plan was to only visit Oxford, but Jeff accommodated our last minute request for an add on by suggesting Blenheim. (estate of the Duke of Marlborough). He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, but not overly so. We were extremely pleased with the day!

7 hour tour with Len was great experience for my family with 2 children 13 and 8. Len took the time to explain all of the sites to us including an in depth history of the British monarchy at my wife's request. Good time to see all of London in a day albeit quickly.

I can't tell you how fantastic British Tours is/was. Harri Williams, our tour guide was on time, patient, highly intelligent and ridiculously well connected at all historical sites. He made London and the surrounding area attractions incredibly rich, painting us stories and re-telling history with accuracy and passion. You need to use British Tours!
