“Fabulous Normandy Day-Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

My wife and I, along with our two children, spent a full day touring Normandy and its environs. We couldn't be happier with our guide and with British Tours. Thank you for an amazing experience, which was at once educational, emotional and evoked a heightened sense of patriotism in all four of us. The sacrifices made by so many to preserve democracy were truly heroic. This was a trip we will always cherish!

“London, Stratford-upon-Avon, Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Last week, our family of five returned from a trip to England and France. Our first day with British Tours was a trip through Oxford and the Cotswolds to Statford-upon-Avon. Our guide, Mark, was terrific! He was very knowledgeable and helpful. He brilliantly balanced his commentary between teenagers, parents, and a grandmother - all of whom had different interests. The next day, Mark gave us a tour of London, including a walking tour of the Tower of London. With his knowledge and efforts, we avoided lines and had a great time. Afterwards, we explored London on our own for two days. British Tours scheduled our Eurostar train trip to Paris, and had a private driver pick us up and take us to our hotel. The next day, we had a private car tour of Paris with Richard, who was outstanding as well. Our first day in Paris was very hot (90'sF), so the air conditioned van (as in England) was much appreciated. I can honestly say that with British Tours, everything on our trip went smoothly. We had an informative introduction to each great city, and then had several days to explore on our own (we used the London Pass and Paris Pass). Wonderful job British Tours!

“Paris to Normandy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

The first part of June found us in Paris and a British Tours day trip to Normandy. There was just two of us with the guide, but what a fantastic day! Guide was superbly knowledgable and actually seemed to like American's. He was so comfortable sharing his knowledge of World War II and the action at Normandy. He spoke very good Engllsh, picked us up promptly at our apartment and our wish was his command! I did think I was being a bit strange booking a trip from Paris to Normandy with a British company, but it was perfect--I would surely do it again. British Tours for us whenever whenever we're in their area. Be aware--they don't go to Normandy from Paris on Sundays due to the traffic situation.

Hello Karen,

Thank you for your review. We are happy that you trusted your sightseeing tour with us.

Experiencing sights first-hand is great and what better way than with a private guide. Some of the stereotypes related to travelling are actually not true at all and it's refreshing to discover that! :-)

Best regards,
