Ali is an exceptional tour guide. We got so much more history out of our trip because of Ali. She is professional, kind, funny, and has a wealth of knowledge. I know whenever we go back to London we will be working with her again. I highly recommend her- you will get such a better and more memorable experience with her. I loved the walking tour we did in London- much more enjoyable and efficient than being stuck in traffic. It was a wonderful way to see the city. A highlight of our trip was going to Hampton Court and Windsor Castle. She took us in her van and it was a great way to do two major sites in one day. Thank you, Ali! We cannot wait to work with you again!

Cannot recommend Ali enough! We did two full private tour days with her and every second was incredible. You get a completely different and upscale experience when touring with a Blue Badge Tour Guide (most qualified tour guide in the U.K.), which Ali is. We did a walking tour with her where we got to really get a feel for the city as well as learn incredible history. I’ve been to London before and now I have a completely different and more in-depth understanding of the city. On the walking tour we went to Westminster and Tower of London. Loved it. Our next tour was to Hampton Court and Windsor Castle. WOW! We would not have been able to do both in one day without Ali and her beautiful and comfortable car to take us. The two locations are too far apart and you cannot get to both in a day without a car. The drive was exceptional. Ali goes above and beyond for her clients. We made memories I will cherish forever. Can’t wait to come back and work with Ali again!

We had 2 amazing days with Ali here in London. One day we did a walking tour of London and having Ali as our guide, we learned so much and were able to cover a lot of ground. Our children (22, 16 and 15) just adored her, and we all enjoyed chatting with her as we walked from site to site. She knows everything there is to know about this beautiful and historic city! The second tour was a drive to visit Stonehenge and Windsor Castle, and Ali planned out every detail which made our day so easy and enjoyable. Her vehicle is extremely comfortable, her driving skills perfect, and her knowledge of the countryside and the history of both sites we visited was impeccable. We were sad to part ways with Ali and hope to visit London again soon!

She is an amazing guide who knows her history and facts well. She is great at keeping you engaged and moving along with younger people. We stopped at perfect places to view landmarks and get photos. We also got to see the changing of the guards only a few feet away as she knows a good spot to see them as they parade bye. On our tour we went to Westminster Abbey, the horse guards, Buckingham Palace, and the Tower of London. Along the whole tour wherever we went she provided insight into the history and meaning of everything and was able to answer any questions you had along the way. Overall she is a great guide and I only have positive things to say about her. She is a nice person and easy to get along with. It was definitely one of our best days we had during our whole trip to London.

We had Ali guiding us in London, Bath, and Cotswold and we had a wonderful time. I never thought that tour guiding can be done better until I had Ali. It wasn’t like the usual tour guide who blabbers through whatever comes to their mind. Ali is very deliberate in what she said and positioned us in great spots even in a very crowded room. She is experienced and knowledgable in history and culture, but more importantly, she is a very personable lady and that made our experience much more enjoyable. Communication prior to the trip was very smooth. She helped us a great deal in planning the trip. Her car was very spacious, clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend Alipal Tour for your short or extended trip to the UK as that would make a world of difference to your experience.
