Great tour of London historic sites with Dan. It was well-paced, entertaining and kept two kids (ages 10 and 13) and adults engaged. Dan shared lots of interesting factoids about Westminster, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and more. He was humorous and very conversational. Highly recommend!

Probably our favorite tour over two weeks in the UK and Ireland. Alex was a wealth of knowledge and really brought Londons history to life for our family. Our 11 and 12 year old boys even stayed engaged the entire time which is no small feat! While Alex had a plan for the best things for us to see, she was also more than willing to customize things to accommodate our wishes. I would highly recommend!

Lucy was fantastic! We were able to have Lucy as our guide for all three days in London. She took us on a walking tour to Westminster, to the Tower of London, and through the British Museum. She was so patient and kind to our three children while providing incredibly knowledgeable information to all three stops! I highly recommend these tours and make sure to ask for Lucy!
