Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was in town for a conference and had a very limited amount of time. They were able to customize an individual tour to Stonehenge and Bath within my tight limitations. Simon was an excellent guide--very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a great trip.

What an incredible experience. David Garcia picked my husband and I up at our hotel. Then the drive to Oford was filled with history and conversation. Once we got to Oxford his knowledge of the city and the history was impressive. We would of never had this experience or learned what we did about Oxford on a tour bus. Best tour ever!!

Nick Edwards with Guidelines to Britain took us on a day trip to Dover and Canterbury. He was an excellent guide for my family. Nick provided an entertaining and informative tour and was a pleasure throughout. I highly recommend taking a tour with him.

Sam Bond with Guidelines to Britain led our tour to Windsor Castle and Hampton Court. We could not had a better person to provide the details on the history of each location. Sam gave historical insight into the political activities and royal families. He was so much fun and really hit it off very well with our group of six. He embraced our home grown “southern charm.” Sam rolled with the punches and ate / enjoyed the U.S. snacks we brought. We definitely want Sam to take us on another tour again. See our group picture with him.

I’ll be quite honest- Stonehenge wasn’t on my top list of things to do in and around London for my first visit, but my step-mom planned the trip so off we went (ages 18-71). David picked us up at our hotel and i knew i liked him right away. He was friendly and could answer all our questions as we traveled to the countryside on a rainy, windy, cold summer day. We arrived at Stonehenge to realize not only umbrellas but those beautiful plastic ponchos were necessary. David gave us great history and context to Stonehenge in the museum and we took the shuttle out to see the stones for ourselves. Rain and wind broke our ponchos and turned our umbrellas inside out, but I’m not kidding when i tell you it was the best moment of our week long trip. David laughed with us as he took our rainy family photos and we all dried off over a warm lunch afterwards and enjoyed a ride through a nearby town before we headed back to the city. David has a great sense of humor and a plethora of knowledge to share- i can’t recommend him enough. David showed us a great time in a torrential downpour and helped us make wonderful memories!
Thanks!

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the guided experience provided by your guide Angus Campbell on August 9th, 2019. Angus not only kept us on schedule but provided an enormous amount of information and insight to the sites as well as the culture and social environment that makes up Great Britain. He was amazing. Through his questions he crafted his information based on our interests. He was able to determine our specific interests and crafted his presentations and information to what excited us. We did take a tour using the "audio guide" assistance so many of the places provide and very quickly we realized that we had been spoiled and longed for Angus's guidance and insight.

Thank you for a great experience and I would and will highly recommend Angus or any of your guides to everyone who may be traveling to the London area and wants to get that special insider information that can only come from your trained, experienced guides. Well worth it a thousand times over. Great Service, i wish there were a way to give it a SIX on the Rating.

We (my husband and I) had someone pick us up at the airport and take us to our hotel. We then met with Neil who was an excellent guide. He took us all over London. He made sure to highlight things we said we are interested in seeing. He and our driver were great with conversation and humor. Neil took us to Stonehenge and Windsor castle the next day as well. We had great conversations and learned more than we expected. Neil had us wanting to stay and experience more, but alas we had to leave. On our last day, we were taken to our ship and set sail on the rest of our vacation plans. I very much would love to return to London.

We booked this company thru a recommendation of s friend and everything was perfect and first class. The greeting upon arrival at the airport, the pre-booked tickets for tours and up to the front of the line experiences were terrific. Our experiences included Windsor Castle, Bathe, Stonehenge Andre fen a customized tour of everything Beatles in London. The latter not being an official tour but one personalized for our group.

From the moment Sam B our guide/driver greeted us at the airport we knew we were going to have an amazing guide for our London journey. Sam’s candid conversational style, expertise in history and his driving expertise certainly made the trip even more fun and adventurous than planned.

I highly recommend this tour company and please be sure to ask for Sam B for your guide and tell him Mitch from Florida says hi.

We just had the most wonderful two day experience with our tour guide Sam. Day one was a 1/2 day tour to Windsor Castle. Day two, he took us to Stonehenge& Bath. His knowledge, wit, humor, patience, and insight made for moments we will never forget. Both days were money well spent and I highly recommend this company for private tour in and around London. Thank you Sam!!
