I was too busy at work to plan and we were down to the wire packing to leave. As last minute effort, I decided to look for a private tour. DGA got back to me immediately and were able to accommodate my family. The driver was on time, extremely professional. The car was spacious and very clean. The driver was very knowledgeable and adjusted plans based on other things we needed to do or see. I cannot recommend this company enough. I feel lucky to have found them on such short notice.

We used DGA Tours for our recent trip to London. We had a desire for a private tour of Cotswolds and Stratford on a particular day and had been referred to DGA. Unfortunately, we had our final headcount 4 days before we left the US so I didn't have a lot of time to coordinate. I worked with Adrian in the front office. Because of our last minute request, we had to prepay before they could reserve a driver. I was a little hesitant with this request but understood that they needed to find a driver. Thankfully, after we made the payment, we had written confirmation within 24 hours with the name and phone number for our guide/driver. Our guide, Mark, was amazing!!!! He was willing to accommodate our needs and desires and adjust the tour to address everything we wanted to do!!! The tour operators appear to own their own vehicles so they have a sense of pride on a comfortable and safe ride. Mark had a ton of information about the sites as we went through London and into the countryside. He had dropped us off close to the Shakespeare's birthplace and caught back up with us after he parked the car. He supplemented the tour with additional information and allowed us to walk through at our own pace. We found a few items to buy in Stratford and did some quick shopping before we left town. Mark asked about what we wanted to do for lunch and selected a beautiful place (the Bell in Stow). It was picture perfect little town. The food was amazing (by far the best we had on the entire trip). He asked if we wanted to walk around town or head to Oxford. We decided to walk around the town a little. As we collected back together, Mark said he thought there was enough time to see Oxford also. He drove us around the campus (key areas) and got us back through the crazy traffic to our hotel. It is hard to express our appreciation on having a tour where we were picked up and dropped back off at the hotel as well as to go at our own pace. Mark was an amazing tour guide and the trip was one we all enjoyed!!! I highly recommend DGA for your private tour needs!!

We had a fabulous tour of London. We were a mixed bag family with several tour members over 65 and some in their 20’s and 30’s. Despite age differences and physical capability differences, the tour was a hit for everyone and kept us all interested and engaged. Marcus’ wit and historical knowledge were excellent and we all enjoyed engaging with him, asking questions and taking in the city. We later traveled to Paris where we had a tour as well, but Marcus’ remained our top tour experience. You cannot go wrong with this company for private tours and certainly cannot go wrong if you are lucky enough to have Marcus as your guide!

With a baby in tow, we had to be a bit more flexible in our schedule---and it worked out beautifully. Loved the Abbey Road component. Highly recommend.

My parents and I had wonderful day driving around in the Yorkshire dales. Stephen was perfect too! It was very easy to organise the trip with Adrian.
