    Wimbledon 2024
    Stay in the Kingston Richmond area for 4 nights and went to Wimbledon. Great time super chill for a quick trip from the states. Flights were all delayed but that more of the norm in today’s travel.

    Ted Lasso Tour - July 2024
    Richard’s Ted Lasso tour was simply amazing! He was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. We got to see several filming locations for the show, as well as learned a little local history along the way. Richard was very kind and made sure to take our picture at key locations. I highly recommend Richard and his tours!

    A tour not to be missed .
    Thanks to Adam who was a great tour guide . I rarely write reviews. I enjoyed it but sadly the pubs finish early here hehe . Same in Australia as well around midnight in some pubs .The company with other travellers I enjoyed as everyone shared their experiences. Tips and so forth . Nice being a solo traveller as you get to meet new people .

    Revisiting history
    Richard, our tour guide was very cordial and quite informative. He was very knowledgeable and could tell wonderful stories that could take your imagination back in time. It was a great experience getting to know the Great British Statesman on a greater level. Would highly recommend!

    Richard is Amazing!
    Other couple canceled so we got Richard all to ourselves. He was marvelous and with our being fans of Dickens, Shakespeare and London's history, he wove for us our own tour personalizing it to what we were most interested in. Richard is incredible - very smart, great personality and sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him and are still raving about this experience to all our friends 5 months later! We are sending them all his way for their trips this year to London, and we ourselves shall book him again when we return this December! Having been born in London and lived there, then moved to USA I couldn't believe the things I never knew and had never seen -- he is a treasure trove and all his well-known subjects about literature, history, EVERYTHING all overlap and contribute to -- when the end of the tour arrives you literally don't want to say goodbye. What a fabulous experience! Cheers, Richard!

    My husband and I had a fabulous experience with Richard. The other couple canceled so we had him all to ourselves!
    The other couple canceled so we had Richard all to ourselves. We are avid fans of Dickens and Shakespeare and London History and he weaved it all into a tour that we are still raving about 5 months later! Being born in London and having lived there and then moved to the US I was astonished at the places and things of which I had been unaware. It is true that one could spend a whole year in London and still not see everything, but being on a tour with Richard at the helm is a wonderful start! We enjoyed every minute from meeting him at Temple Station until we said farewell at the house he believes was the inspiration for where Scrooge lived in A Christmas Carol. I cannot rave enough about Richard, his knowledge, his great personality and sense of humor. We are sending all our friends who visit his contact info/website and we will definitely look him up when we are back in town later this year in 2024. Cheers Richard!!

    Wonderful 2hrs walk
    Our knowledgeable guide Richard brought Churchill's story to life as we walked through the streets of London, visiting key locations that were significant in his life. We learned so much about his early years, his leadership during World War II, and his lasting impact on British history. And Richard was passionate about Churchill and we were captivated from start to finish and left the tour feeling inspired and enriched. Thanks for the fantastic tour!

    Not only for the holidays
    Great tour. I can imagine it would be even better round holidays. Lots of good information about the history squeezed in with all the dickens info you ever wanted to know. Kids (9 & 11) years old are inspired to dive into their first Charles Dickens novel when we get home.

    Birthday trip
    Beautiful house and grounds. Was happy with most things except for the lack of information on the artwork. Spoke with curator about this, was advised to ask as they are all very knowledgeable on each section but they would have had to accompany us all the way around, this was not feasible. Rooms were amazing and kept very well.

    Historical pub tour for two.
    Richard was absolutely great. Before the tour he communicated with us about any Pubs we had already visited or specific ones in which we were interested. He was very informative on the histories of the individual pubs and neighborhoods as well as the general history of the periods through which the pubs served historical figures. It was a fun and enlightening experience — and provided an opportunity to try many different brews!

Richard is very knowledgable about London history and Sherlock Holmes. We went to three different locations (by tube) and everything was filled with good stories and interesting information. He also gives other tours, for example about Charles Dickens. I am sure that's interesting too. Thank you.

We took two tours with Richard and both of the were more like a visit with a friend showing off their neighborhood. He is courteous, thoughtful, accommodating and, most importantly, knowledgeable about even the most obscure bit of information.

We had a great afternoon on our tour with Richard. He was relaxed and flexible as he took us around the city. He had interesting stories and bits of information all along the way. We will definitely book another tour with him when we are back in town! Thanks for a fun day Richard!
