Our tour guide, Anthony, was very fun, energetic and knowledgeable about every site he took us too. He was also very patient because we had just arrived from the airport before the start of our tour. Anthony took us to all of the sites we requested and drove us to some must see areas around London to experience the English... More

Our tour guide, Mike, gave us a wonderful 5 hr. tour of all the highlights of London. He was very knowledgeable, professional and enjoyable to be with. It made our first trip to London very special.

Our tour guide, Mike, drove us to Highclere Castle. Mike was very knowledgeable about the filming of Downtown Abbey and information regarding the original history of the castle. His cordiality and wit made the tour exceptionally good and enjoyable.

We purchased a day trip to Paris during our recent London vacation. We went on the Eurostar, which was a fabulous experience. We were met at the station by our Guide/translator and a driver in an immaculately clean car. We saw in one day more than I would have believed possible! We drove on the Champs de Elysee, (both ways)... More

We were fortunate enough to have the very knowledgeable and experienced services of Jonathan for two days of touring the wonders of London and surrounding areas. He makes sure you see it all and also manages to find time to accommodate special requests, e.g. visits to Wimbledon and Notting Hill. We were both down with very heavy colds, yet his... More

Our experience with British Tours was delightful from start to finish. We arranged for a 12-hour tour of Stonehenge, Avebury, and Bath, and were picked up promptly at our hotel at 8am (Len, our guide, was already ready and waiting). We were driven first to Stonehenge, then Avebury, then Bath. We took our time exploring each place, never feeling rushed... More

My husband and I just returned to the St. Ermin's Hotel after a very pleasant and relaxing day with our tour guide, Mr. Alister Davidson with British Tours. After spending the last two days walking ALL over London, the day was exactly what we needed. Alister was prompt for our departure and sat down with us prior to beginning our... More

Being in London with a girl friend, for a week in May to attend the Chelsea Flower Show, we had the great fortune to spend the day with Harri, who was fortunately recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel. Harri could not have been more charming - or knowledgable - and we spent the day, comfortably dividing our... More

From start to finish British Tours planned the perfect touring week for our family. And Rod was a complete standout. The man knows everything, could answer every question, and planned a weeks worth of sights and sounds and activities that kept even 2 teens engaged and interested. Thank you Rod and British Tours, you made the trip unforgettable.

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
