We live in Wimbledon and decided to have a London Staycation. I chatted to Richard to see which tour would suit us and our teenage daughters best. Richard immediately gave me confidence that his was the company to book with and that we were going to have a wonderful time exploring London on a half day tour. Andrew, our guide on the day was tremendous - he is professional, great fun, hugely knowledgeable and very flexible. We learnt so much and really feel we know our city so much better with knowledge ranging from unique historical facts to really interesting movie, TV and music location trivia - it was just brilliant and we will definitely book again. Our girls now have the confidence to further explore our wonderful city and this has been the Covid-19 silver lining...

Our tour guide, Steve, gave us a great and comprehensive half-day tour of London that included Buckingham Palace, St. James, the Tower of London, Borough Market, Soho, Covent Garden, Abbey Road Studios, St. John's Wood, Knightsbridge, and more. He was friendly, informative and conscientious of our specific requests & interests. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in an overview of London upon arriving in the city.

Greg was a superb tour guide. We learned about places we would not likely find on our own. He even had unique stories about the popular tourist attractions. He really knows London! Our tour included stops at the Guildhall Art Gallery to see remnants of the Roman Amphitheatre and paintings of the old city, the Tower of London and Tower Hyll, and St. James's and Buckingham Palaces plus many novel spots along the way. Greg tailored the tour to our interests. We enjoyed this tour very much and highly recommend it.

I can't tell you what a great introduction to London our guide Gordon gave us. He not only was knowledgeable and charming but went out of his way to show us "his" London. We wanted to get an overview tour the day we arrived and Gordon and his black cab were perfect. My 87 year old mother-in-law found the cab easy to get in and out of and we were never rushed. It truly felt like being shown around town by a longtime friend with an encyclopedic knowledge of the city and its history.

Greg was simply fantastic. Beyond knowledgeable about the history of the city, the tour was truly an opportunity to become enmeshed in all the great city of London has to offer. Travelling by black cab was a brilliant part and enabled us to travel quite a bit. There was not a question Greg couldn't answer and he navigated tricky road closures with aplomb! If you love history and want to learn about the city and all it has to offer, you cannot go wrong with Greg!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to London! We couldn’t say enough good things about Andrew! He knew so much about any topic & could tailor the conversation towards your interest whether it is on government, history, monarchy, film, famous persons, etc. It was a cooler day & we were so grateful to be in a warm car & hop out when we wanted to see the sites up close & take pictures. It was the perfect big picture overview of London with many hidden special stops we never would have seen!

Took a 4 hour tour with Andrew. A wonderful ride. He accommodated all of the sites we wanted to see plus many more! We had asked to see Abby Road Snd he showed os that( even has us get out and took a photo walking across the street) plus many other Beatles sites. My daughter had wanted to see the oldest tea store and he took us there. We went inside with him and he showed us some of the historical pieces they have. My husband wanted to see his company headquarters and he drove us through the business district. Highly recommend this very personalized tour. Loved Andrew

Andrew was full of fun knowledge and great historical stories. A personalized tour that takes you to places the buses cannot go. This is a tour I would do again!
