My eight-year-old daughter and I recently spent five days with the fantastic Henrietta and her amazing driver, Kevin. Booking with Henrietta was the best decision I've made on a vacation in ages.
I wanted our trip to incorporate a mix of my daughter's Harry Potter loving sensibility with my own history & literature loving sensibility and Henrietta managed it all with aplomb. Whenever there was a Harry Potter location to be woven into our London and Oxford tours, it was done and held my daughter's imagination while simultaneously offering a way in for her to a broader appreciation of what we were seeing. In the end, her favorite experiences in England were our visit to Stonehenge at sunset, the visit to Shakespeare's grave and the trip to Oxford. None of her favorites were Harry Potter-centric, but she enjoyed ALL of it, in large part, because her attention was already engaged in something she already loves.
Henrietta is great that way. She will take your own, pre-existing interests and widen them. What more can anyone ask for in a vacation?! And she does it with warmth and a deep knowledge of everything she's showing you. She is fantastic with children and adults alike. I'm still working my way down a list of books on areas of interest we discussed while on our tours.
The other thing that is fantastic about Henrietta's tours is that she engages a separate driver for the tours. Initially, I wasn't sure if this was necessary, as there are many guides who double as drivers for their guests. But, actually having a separate driver turned out to be ideal, especially in London. Instead of stressing about parking or making it to our destination on time for our itinerary, there was no stress whatsoever.
I cannot recommend Henrietta highly enough. There's a reason she has only 5 star reviews. Book her and you are ensuring a fabulous vacation and a lifetime of wonderful memories!
