Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids; ages 11 and 12 years old) had the most enjoyable and unforgettable experience with Ray Ruddick. We spent 4 days exploring the English countryside (Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratfor-Upon-Avon, Bath, Stonehenge, etc.), and another day discovering London with him! We covered a lot of ground: from quaint country villages, to stately palaces and historical castles, from major attractions and off the beaten track places! Whenever the opportunity arises, we do something really interesting and fun which are not in the itinerary – he calls them “serendipity!” and we loved those moments. We remember the time he pulled over to the roadside to feed some horses with mints! He tries his best to accommodate everyone's fancy. We visited a lot of Harry Potter sights for my husband and daughter, Banksy murals for another daughter, and a Bugatti car showroom for my son!
Being one of the senior Blue Badge guides, he is very knowledgable and is a walking encyclopedia of facts. We learned a lot from him! Most importantly, Ray is a genuinely kind person who truly cares for our famiy in every way. He was like a second father to our children, always ready to help us in any way. We will never forget our experience with him!
