We were a large extended family group (20 people) travelling together ranging in age from 3 to 75, so our guide John did a fantastic job keeping us all on track on interested in what he was talking about. He was very knowledgable and we say all that was possible with such a large group. Very easy company to liaise... More

Paul was our guide. He was amazing. He asked what we wanted to see and built our tour around our desires. As we visited on route he suggested sites we had not thought of but absolutely loved. We loved it so much we booked him for the next day to see Bath and Stonehenge. He was very knowledgeable and insightful.... More

4 of us took a private guided tour from Paris, overnight to Normandy, Bayeux and Mont St Michel. Comfortable car, pleasant and careful driver; he was very knowledgeable about the route, tourist short-cuts and logistics. More of a well-informed amateur than professional guide, though. A well-planned itinerary gave us adequate time at each stop. A little-overpriced, though; the extra charge... More

I had a wonderful tour with Geoff. He was waiting for me at the agreed upon time, had a beautiful, immaculate Audi, was extremely knowledgeable about every site he took me to, and stopped by the fabulous Borough Market for me to grab a very quick bite which was exactly what I wanted- to maximize my time site-seeing not eating-...

We took a day trip to Bath and Stonehenge. Geoff was a knowledgeable and personable guide who made sure to include my 16 year old grandson in the conversation. He has a wide range of knowledge of Bath and Stonehenge and that also includes the monarchy and British military history. I would highly recommend him for your tour guide. I... More

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.
