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.

Gavin was a fabulous tour guide. We only had a limited amount of time to spend at the British Museum, and he was able to show us the highlights in a very expedient fashion while still keeping it interesting for us and the kids (ages 11 and 14). I would highly recommend him for tours, and if we go back to London anytime soon, we will definitely be asking him for a second tour.

Amazing experience with Gavin on our walking tour in London. We met in Covent Garden walked to Big Ben and Elizabeth Tower, to Westminster Abbey and then thru parks to Buckingham Palace. He also recommended a nice fish and chips place that was delicious. Gavin was mindful of our group as we were jet laggd and wide range of ages. We took a lovely break at a pub to energize ourselves. Gavin is knowledgeable and kept the young ones peaked with Harry Potter trivia. Highly recommend

Absolutely fabulous tour of the National Gallery! It was like getting an entire art history course—but a really interesting one—in a morning. It brought the paintings to life and put them in historical perspective. It was 100 times better than if we had just walked through by ourselves.

I took my 18 year old niece to England as a high school graduation present, and the British Museum was among the many sites I wanted to show her in London. I also wanted her to get a broad overview of the collection as well as get some historical context for the various artifacts and treasures housed in this amazing museum. Gavin exceeded my hopes and expectations. He is both engaging and informative, efficiently leading us on a highlights tour that included the Assyrian wall reliefs, Parthenon Marbles and even something for us Harry Potter fans! I highly recommend Gavin as your guide in London!

My husband and I enjoyed a tour with Gavin on the 10-year anniversary of the festival tour my youth choir and I were fortunate to take with Gavin. He gave us an insiders tour of the City of London. This included the colorful history of the area, an overview of the medieval and contemporary architecture, and passage through hidden alleys and quiet spaces we never would have found on our own. We are grateful to Gavin for a lovely day and highlight of our trip to London.

Gavin is, without doubt, a truly excellent Blue Badge Guide. Our recent Tour of London's Soho was a most fascinating and educational experience. If only we 'looked up' more often.
We have attended several London Tours with Gavin and each one has been meticulously researched and delivered in a most bespoke, homorous and memorable way.
His knowledge of London is beyond compare and it is truly wonderful that we have been able to share it with him over the past years.
Thank you so much Gavin. Please, please continue to expertly impart your encyclopedic knowledge of our truly magnificent capital city.

We’ve had so much positive feedback – lots of ‘I thought I knew the area but…’ type comments!

Thanks again for all of your help with this.

If we decide to do something like this again in the future, we’ll know who to ask!

Gavin is simply a wonderful guide! I had two young adults staying with me and asked if he would take us on a tour of the Spitalfields area. For three hours (which flew by!) we learned about this historic area from Roman times until the present. It was a fascinating mixture of the old and the new, street art and markets, architecture and green spaces. Gavin made it all come alive for us. This was truly a highlight of my guests' time in London. Thank you!!!

Gavin was the perfect tour guide for us! Incredibly informative and can tailor the tour to your interests. We all learned quite a bit of interesting facts, stories and were also entertained with his classic british humor along the way. We did a Westminster area tour that included the Abbey and were able to skip all lines, and it was a far better experience than I have had prior with the audio guides and waiting in an hour long line. We also booked another tour with him for St Paul’s and the city area. Both 1/2 day tours and I highly recommend! We will definitely come back to London and book him again for other tours.

Gavin took a small group of colleagues on a walk around the City to help us discover more of the history of our place of work. It was a fantastic afternoon, with Gavin able to deal with every question we threw at him. We wanted a mix of old and new and Gavin certainly delivered - with an intimate knowledge of both the most recent City developments and our Roman past. Thoroughly and unreservedly recommended!
