We (Austrian family of 4: parents and 2 kids 13 and 14 years old) had the pleasure to spend 3 mornings (3,5 hours/day) with Tim. I booked him weeks before because of his extraordinary reviews on Tripadvisor and we had some nice email correspondence about our interests in the beginning.
On the first day he picked us up from our hotel at Tower Hill and we started our tour through the Tower of London, the crown jewels… "The city of London"
Tim knows the town and all its sights and hidden treasures like his „Westentasche“ as well as all the historical background.
We asked him to do the tours in English but we soon found out, that his German is better than our English ever will be. Anyway, English it was, sometimes interrupted with some sort of „Denglish“ - We laughed a lot with Tim. He has not only a profound knowledge of everything concerning the British capital but also a great sense of humor! Time flew and the following 2 days we did the so called „Royal London“- and the „Greenwich“- Tour. Tim made us show up for the changing of the guard right in time on the best spot for taking pictures. Without Tim we would not have seen half of the sights in that amount of time and none of the less known things that make this city so unique. He left no question unanswered, no detail disregarded.
Back home again we still talk about Tim and his gentle, polite and funny way of winning us over and to wow us. We still talk in English with „Timstyle“ interruption by German „Wörter“… Whenever we will be back in London we will meet again, that’s for sure!
Dear Tim, thank you for everything and we wish you all the best for the future and the nicest tourists on earth and we miss you already!
