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!

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...

Vietimme unohtumattoman päivän oppaamme Richard Liddlen kanssa, Downtown abbeyn kuvauspaikoilla ja highclere linnassa. Vaikka yksityinen kierros on kalliimpi kuin ryhmämatkat, niin tämä todellakin kokemisen ja rahan arvoinen. Tästä matkasta tuli meille unohtumaton kokemus. Vahva suositus ja iso kiitos oppaallemme. We spent an unforgettable day with our guide Richard Liddle, the filming locations of Downtown Abbey and Highclere Castle. Private tour is more expensive than group trips, but this experience worth it. The trip became an unforgettable experience for us. Strong recommendation and many thanks to Richard.

In this tour, you get a private tour in a London Black Cab with your own personal taxi driver. The tours are accordingly on the pricier side, but they're pretty affordable if you have a full cab. We did the Sherlock tour, which focuses primarily on the BBC Sherlock series, but also throws in some other sites relevant to Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle. Our driver was knowledgeable and friendly and very willing to take some pictures of us at prominent locations. We saw a lot of London from a cab driver's perspective. I'd definitely recommend this if the price isn't overwhelming, although I might have chosen a tour that has a few more elements, such as the Bard, Bond, Beatles, Baker Street tour, rather than focusing on just one.

Thank you for the wonderful comments regarding the tour and the guide. On all or tours, as you said, we try and show people as much of London as well as the theme of the tour they have chosen. We agree that when you have a family of 4 or 6 the cost is astonishingly cheap, but our pricing reflects our fantastic tours and service that we provide. You could say that it is like buying a car, do you want a Ford or Rolls Royce. We are the Rolls Royce of sightseeing companies, hence our great 5***** reviews, including yours. Thanks once again for the great comments and we hope to see you again one day Regards Anthony
