We (myself, my mom and my 6 yo son) were headed to Europe for a cruise out of Dover and stayed a few nights before and after in London. Glen picked us up from the Heathrow and we did a half day tour of the city that was simply amazing. My mom and I had been there before but this... More

We were referred to Glen by a friend who used Glen in their family's trip to London in the summer. We are glad that we got this referral. Glen has an encyclopedia-type of knowledge on London, especially on history. We spent two days walking around London with Glen and we learned so much about this wonderful city. Glen worked very...

I booked Glen (based on good reviews) for a single full day tour of London a few months in advance of our trip. Glen emailed me the most helpful and detailed tips to plan the areas we would like to visit. When we arrived in London, Glen picked us up at our hotel in his new Mercedes van that held... More

I can't say enough about this positive experience with Gren Tours. Communications were a breeze - we received multiple emails from Glen prior to the trip to address and tweak our itinerary. Picked up on time, we saw London from an insiders perspective and our trip to Downton Abbey and the gardens made for a wonderful afternoon. On the way... More

We were able to hit the London highlights in one day. He got us back to the station in time for our train back to Paris.Even though it was... More

We liked Glen so much, we hired him twice: a two day overnight to Bath and day trip to Canterbury and Dover. Not only is Glen so knowledgeable about places and history, but he spices his information with interesting trivia. He is most friendly and agreeable to changes during a trip; he is more your friend than your guide. We... More

We had a group of 3 couples. Glen arrived at our hotel exactly on time with a new and very comfortable Mercedes 7 person van. He gave us a personal driving tour of the city of London and then took us out to Chartwell and Hever Castle. He went inside these sites with us and personally guided us through each... More

Glen was a great guide! His knowledge was amazing and he made our tour fun for the whole family. He will design the tour to meet your individual needs. He throws in British humor throughout the day. We learned a lot from him and enjoyed every minute. He also took us to some of the Beatles sites an extra bonus... More

My husband and I booked a full day car tour with Glen. So glad we did! There is simply no better way to see the sights! Glen picked us up at the train station as we were traveling in from Paris. Right away we began the tour and it was awesome! Glen was so informative and is such a historian.... More
