Our first time to London

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!

Our tour guide, Stepan, was absolutely amazing! He showed us all of the popular locations and monuments around town but also knew about all the little ins and outs & interesting tid bits that we chatted about in between going to locations. If you are lucky enough to get him as your tour guide, prepare to laugh!

Gary was amazing. We were in London because our daughter was going to Kings College for a semester. We told Gary that and we just wanted a tour to get her acquainted with London and shows us the sites. He spent 7 hours with us and did a great job. I highly recommend Gary for a personal tour.
