A most fortunate shot in the dark choice of a personalized guide service. They have an 800 USA number that is answered on British time. They are, like all the other personal guide services a bit expensive. What they offer, however, is a chance to see all the sights with as little wasted time as possible. Our guide was Nigel... More

The tour was great...but for these kind of things its all about the guide. Our guy was Neil and he was incredible! Super knowledgeable not only about the subject but about London both in the present and in the time period of Jack. The only negative would be the communication between the company and ourselves as we were trying to... More

We had what I would call a "short trip" in London, only 4 nights. We wanted to make the most of our trip without spending an entire day at one location. Mark was our wonderful & knowledgeable guide. I feel that I lucked out with getting a great company, I have never been to London so booking a company I... More

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to scrap a long/well planned vacation to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, and come up with a new plan literally overnight. This brought us to London (week of July 26-August 2nd). After 4 days of touring on our own through the sights of London, we walked into the offices of British Tours, and worked... More

My husband and I booked a full-day tour to see Stonehenge and Bath. Our guide Anthony was not only knowledgeable, but a lot of fun to be around. I love English history so we had a great time discussing the history of the Kings and Queens through the years. I love the fact that when we came to Stonehenge and... More

We were picked up at our hotel and spent seven hours seeing everything we wanted to see ,we even managed to visit St. Paul's Cathedral, although it was... More

At our request, our tour included Windsor Castle, the city of Oxford, and Stonehenge. It was a very enjoyable day, due in large part to the breadth of knowledge demonstrated by our guide of the relevant history and unique aspects of each of these sights. The stop in Oxford included lunch at the pub frequented by writers Tolkien and Lewis,... More

My wife and I booked a five hour London City tour as it was our first time in London. Our guide Jeff was the best! He took us to all the major attractions and more. He knew all of the history of each attraction and also a ton of interesting facts and cool places off the beaten path. British Tours... More

Following our British Isles cruise we left a couple days in London to rest.. However, we were interested in experiencing the Normandy coast after seeing the media coverage of the 70th anniversary of D-Day . British tours made all the arrangements for Eurostar rail travel and a full day tour of Normandy ending at 7pm at the train station in... More

This is our third time using British Tours and there is a reason why, they are professional, prompt, knowledgable, use clean comfortable cars and are fun! This trip we only had one day and wanted to see some sites outside the city. We were traveling with our adult daughter, another couple and their adult daughter. We did the Windsor, Oxford,... More
