This is not a normal trip listed on their website, but upon inquiry British Tours were able to set up a driver and tour guide to meet us at the Edinburgh airport and spend a day touring the historic city of Edinburgh. We had toured with BT around London before, so we were very pleased that they could accommodate us... More

My husband Dan and I booked a day trip from Paris to Normandy through British Tours, Ltd. I had been referred to them by a well-traveled friend in the U.S. We were not disappointed! In fact, we were thrilled! Our driver/guide, Ludovic Brunet, picked us up promptly at our hotel in a comfortable, luxurious car. We loved the fact that... More

Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed visiting Windsor and Hampton Court with Geoff! Throughout the day he shared funny anecdotes, sad stories, interesting facts and his marvelous take on all things historical. Even though we've visited London several times before, I never knew that tall skinny building was the "shot tower" or the dog running alongside the horses... More

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, 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

Hello Mark, Thank you for your review, and also for your kind words about the office staff. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your tour. Avebury is a lesser known location which can really add on to the tour experience. You can work around the stone circle and touch the stones too! Best regards, The British Tours Team More
