Antony was wonderful! I think he knows half the people in London, and is cousins with about a third of them. We learned so much crazy history -- everything from who was the prototype for the Mad Hatter to the origin of the phrase "hangover." We rushed over to get the best position to see the changing of the guard, visited a pub that dated back to Chaucer's day, and generally got access to things that we never would have even known to ask about. There is no substitute for one of these tours.

Patrick was an amazing guide. He was funny, personable and seemed to know London better than anyone. Thank you for a great afternoon!


10 Nov, 2023

Booking was easy and the tour company was super accommodating when we had to reschedule our tour due to Parliment opening and road closures. Our tour guide Tracey was unbelievable!! She was so knowledgeable about the city of London and all of the city’s history. She was so patient and caring with our 4 young children. We only wish we had another day on the trip to tour with her…she was that amazing! She also knew all of the great spots for photos and helped us with the pictures! We are so thankful for our day with Tracey on the tour!

Our tour was very nice. Our chauffeur/guide, James, was friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. He took us to the places we had chosen plus a few more that were a pleasant surprise. When we ended the tour it was like saying goodbye to a family member. I would highly recommend this company.
