One of the best days I have ever spent on a private guided tour. Ludwig was sensational -- very knowledgeable, professional and thoughtful. He took our interests into consideration and adjusted accordingly which really provided us with some unique experiences. Cannot sing high praise enough!,

We had a great private car tour from London to the American Cemetery and the Imperial War Museum. My husband is a real enthusiast of WWI and WWI history. Our tour guide, Rod had an amazing knowledge of all of the planes and also the tanks that were on display at the museum. We walked through 5 or 6 hangars... More

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! I felt like our concierge was... More

I am not sure if I submitted a review but we really enjoyed our day tour with Geoff. He was very knowledgeable and knew many shortcuts to see the most important areas in the Tower of London and the British Museum. Although it was very busy at Churchill's Bunker due to the holiday week, we enjoyed seeing the Notting Hill... More

Our tour guide Harri Williams was extremely knowledgable and interesting. His in depth knowledge of English history made the sites we visited come alive.... More

The driver guide which British Tours assigned me, Mark, was really one of the best guides I have ever met anywhere. His in-depth knowledge of British history and various sites was remarkable, but the most important quality was his ability to read his client. He knows exactly when to remain silent when I needed time to digest information, or simply... More
