We had a whole day to wait for a flight from Gatwick. Michael picked us up from Gatwick and we did a tour of small villages around that area. Michael is a well-qualified tour guide! He’s very knowledgeable about the history and is a language buff as well! He was extremely interesting and filled us in with some very unusual and amusing anecdotes about the places we saw! If anyone is looking to do a tour of any area of Britain, I’d highly recommend you try Michael!

Michael is one of the most knowledgeable and friendly people I have ever met. He also happens to be a walking encyclopedia of British knowledge...and it does not stop there. Michael will custom-make a tour to fit your needs as long as you need. You tell him exactly what you are looking for and how many days you have and he takes it from there. I contacted Michael three weeks prior to my one-day visit to the Gatwick to tell him what my daughter and I were looking to do. This was the last day in the UK before returning to Texas from Gatwick airport. My daughter and I figured one last day 'of something different,' well it was the best day of my entire two-week trip to London and Paris. We saw things there is no possible way would have done it without Michael. So I will tell you that if you want an experience that is fit just for you and away from the crowd call Michael. We will certainly be back soon and he will be my first call! Thank you, Michael!!

I wanted to see specific places in South England and wasn't confident in driving myself. I hired Micheal to drive for me, but he did so much more than just that. He researched each location and hand crafted a tour just for me. It was phenomenal. The man loves his country and we gave him a challenge to research, which I could tell made his day. I've spent time with other tour guides that didn't like their job and it came through in their presentation, but Micheal loves it. In return, it made the tour ten times better. I especially recommend him for heritage tours because he will do the research for you and save you time. In fact, I think that's what I'm going to do on my next tour to the UK.

My husband and I had a day long layover in Gatwick and wanted to fill our day seeing as much as possible without going into the city. We happened to come across this tour option and we were so glad we decided to go forward. Michael is such a fantastic man, has great knowledge and pride of the area and it really shows as we takes you on a whimsical trip through the English countryside. We had non stop conversation, much too see and really got a true experience of what the area had to offer. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at a local favorite cafe and were taught the proper way to "take tea". We hope to make another trip to the area and meet up with our new friend again!

I had a transit day in London on my way to Norway and wanted to maximize on my time there, so contacted Unique Tours of Britain. Michael Osborne's amazing tour checked off all the boxes on my wish list: oodles of fun historical antedotes, visits to castles, churches, fun local cafe for tasty food, drives thru glorious pastoral countryside...just a stellar day! It was like a private tour with your favorite college history professor! Michael was professional, courteous, flexible and congenial. His love for Britain is highly contagious. Thanks to Michael I met and chatted with many locals throughout the day - such a pleasant bonus and truly appreciated - Highly recommend.
