We hired Bryan to be our guide for an all day tour of London. He was waiting for us right at the Tower of London underground exit holding a sigh with our name. We than spent the most enjoyable 7 hours of touring in his own taxi. He is very knowledgable about English history and has a great sense of humour. He knows the best time to be at a site and where to stand to get great pictures. We would never have been able to see as much as we did if we had tried to do it on our own. Highly recommend.

Bryan picked us up at Heathrow on our first morning which was efficient and wonderful after a full night of travel. His great sense of humor along with his knowledge of the city kept us entertained all day. We would highly suggest his service to any tourist just landing in London for the first time. Thanks Bryan!

Bryan picked up our family at Heathrow upon our arrival and even met us right on time even though we had caught an earlier flight and arrived an hour before expected. He toured us all around London after dropping our bags at the hotel, entertaining us with interesting and humorous stories along the way that kept our 8- and 12-year-olds alert and excited despite the jet-lag. He took us to a great old pub for lunch and continued the tour afterwards, being very generous with his time, flexible with our destinations, and never making us feel rushed. The kids were disappointed that he wasn't with us on all of our days in London, but were very happy to see him the morning we left when he came back to bring us from our hotel to the airport. Thanks, Bryan!

A BIG TEXAS thank you to Graham Woodhouse - our tour guide during our recent visit to London. Graham and his colleague, Bryan, took time to correspond via email to determine ahead of time our wish list itinerary for a full day of site seeing in London.

Graham picked us up at our hotel and reviewed the day with us. He immediately shared wonderful historical facts about the sites we were seeing and would be seeing. We covered Westminster Abbey, Churchill's War Rooms and the changing of the calvary guard all in a morning. During our time in his Taxi, Graham shared great stories - (his knowledge of London was superb). He made sure to point out where key events happened and the key players involved.

As we rounded out the day,Graham took us on a self guided tour of the Tower of London. I was so impressed with his command of history and dates. He shared so many interesting tid bits that I didn't want the day to end.

If you are looking for a memorable way to see London, a full day with Graham will be the best decision you will ever make.

Bryan is that good my colleague at work hired him for her birthday ! I have been hiring Bryan for our student tours around the City for many years now but he also covers Oxford and Cambridge. He can customise your tour and can include airport pick-ups as a package.

If you enjoy some banter along with historical know-how I can highly recommend Bryan for his insurmountable knowledge which is delivered in a fantastically humourous manner. For your tailor-made trip contact Bryan at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment as he is often booked up months ahead ! I've already booked him for next summer and next Christmas 2013 !
