“Beatles/Rock and Roll Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

If you are a big fan of the Beatles and love music from the 60's, you will probably love this tour. We had a great time seeing where it all began. Our guide REALLY KNEW HIS STUFF and it was obvious he was passionate about all the research he had done. My husband has been a Beatles fan forever and the highlight of our tour was when we went to Abbey Road. I was able to snap a pic of him "reenacting" the Beatles' walk across Abbey Road. What a fun, fun afternoon.........one we will remember for a long time. Oh, by the way, you will learn about many many other musicians on this tour. Our guide gave us a fabulous history lesson enlightening us on how World War II and other events in London's history impacted the rise of many of the musicians who called the area home. Don't miss this one!

“New Years Eve Fireworks Extravanganza and Dinner at Brew Wharf”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The Dinner at Brew Wharf was disgusting, the starter was stringy the main was cold and not presented very well, the dessert pie was so hard you could not get the cutlery to cut into it! The Meteor Clipper was so boring no navigator to let us know where we were passing, the toilets were dirty and not cleaned during the evening, also there was no room outside on the deck to watch the fireworks in the open air as there were too many people crammed on the deck to watch

“London Christmas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Note if you purchase on line you must have access to a printer in order to book. Kiosk in Leicester Square is easy to find and away from the craziness of the "original tour bus" purchase sites which seem to be tourist trappings. Discounts same at kiosk as on line.

“Oxford, the Cotswolds and Stratford with Traditional Christmas Lunch-Golden Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

There has been the most amazing experience, especially for the special day of Christmas. The landscape was breathtaking, history and tradition was present at all time being a great company and of course, our tour guide from GoldenTours named Graham has been the most helpful and entertaining than all others. He had excellent timing, solid knowledge and he was able to transmit all the English culture to his audience with ultimate professionalism and vividness. Thank you for that wonderful and most interesting day
