    Billy is an amazing London resource of all things historical and current in this wonderful city. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our long layover and Billy gets top marks for helping us make the most of every minute including adjusting the itinerary a bit to get in a visit at a special exhibit we really wanted to see. Highly recommend him and his tour for anyone!

    Finally getting around to leaving Billy a review, since I did not want to rush this review. The tour was so perfect that leaving a review of only a few sentences would not have done the tour, or Billy justice! We had a 16 hour layover in London that we reached out to Billy prior to our trip. He was friendly and exceptionally quick with responses. He was interested in what we were hoping to get out of the tour, and gave us wonderful suggestions to be able so that we would be able to accomplish everything we wanted to do plus more! We utilized his services for 8 hours, but I am sure Billy would be more than willing to oblige for a tour longer or shorter than 8 hours! We were able to see all the historical sights we wanted to see plus more, eat at the best fish and chip spot, and do some shopping at Harrods! Billy was also a wonderful conversationalist and exceptionally knowledgeable, as he is also a History major. Thus, the whole tour was not just taxi ride around the city. It was a guided tour, with all the quickest routes, the best descriptions, historical info and the best angles. And what I mean by best angles was he knew the best spots for the most perfect picture taking opportunities— and he was also a great picture taker! In summary, we loved our tour with Billy, and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is doing a quick layover in London. He is knowledgable, efficient, and funny to boot!

    Billy - All I can say is WOW what a tour guide. We had an 8 hour tour of London and he did not disappoint. I will definitely recommend him to friends or family traveling to London. He was very knowledgeable and a great person with a sense of humor. We couldn't have asked for a better trip.
