My son and I had the time of our lives on this excellent tour. Our tour guide Davey was outstanding. He was personable, funny, and incredibly knowledgable about everything that we saw. He took us to a few places off the beaten path and we couldn’t have asked for a better tour.

Davey made my trip to London very special. He customized what I wanted to see and brought me to almost everything on my list. I really appreciate his kindness and how knowledgeable he was on the history of London. You will feel safe with him as a guide as he looks after you well. I recommend to ask for Davey as a guide to make your London trip extra special.

My husband and I were looking for a private tour of Westminster Abbey and The Tower because we wanted to learn the rich history and go at our own pace. I emailed with the company several weeks in advance and explained our interests. Basically, we asked for a history geek. And we got her! Alex was immediately our speed and so excited to share the history of these two historic locations. She answered every question, filled in lots of gaps, and was an absolute delight to spend the day with. Once Alex got to know us better she made recommendations of other places to explore along the way. We added a boat ride on the Thames to the Tower because the weather was so great. Highly recommend Alex and this tour company if all their guides are this good!

Our guide was Davies, and he was incredible. He was very knowledgeable and laid back. He talked to use like we were old friends and by the time our tour was over we thought we were! We learned so much on our tour we would have never learned if not for him. We saw all the normal tourist sites, which are great, but with his knowledge and understanding of the city, was able to show us points of interest tailored to our interests. We saw “hidden gems” and have memories we will never forget!
