DGA went above and beyond our expectations. We arrived in Birmingham from the USA and hired DGA to take us on a day tour of Bath and Stonehenge. Our driver, David, was prompt, courteous, and a virtual encyclopedia of British history. As we drove through the midlands, David gave us an oral history of the land and its inhabitants. David's knowledge and passion for the national treasures of England was inspiring, as he told fascinating stories of the past throughout our journey. David also took us to an out-of-the-way 600 year old pub for lunch, where our history lesson continued, right down to the architecture of the building and the origins of British ale, which was quite tasty indeed! We ended our trip in London, where 2 days later, we embarked on a DGA tour of London with our second driver, Angela.
With a hurricane-like storm approaching London, Angela provided us with a brief, yet all-encompassing morning tour of the city. Like David, Angela possessed a wealth of knowledge of historical sites in London, including legendary 20th century spots like the former headquarters of Apple Records, where The Beatles filmed their famous rooftop concert. Her knowledge of the city streets made it possible for us to see every major landmark and various historical sections of the city in a very short period of time. Being the Christmas season, London was highly decorated for the holiday and wonderful to see. Angela even took us to Harrods for some quick last minute Christmas gifts. At the end of the tour, Angela bravely drove us back to Birmingham from London in very rough weather. She was an absolute joy the whole day.
We found DGA tours by researching online reviews and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND them if you are planning a trip to the UK. They are very trustworthy and very capable of customizing a tour to fit your needs. In our case, we needed transport back and forth from Birmingham to London on separate days. We simply chose the sites we wanted to visit along the way and DGA worked with us to provide our itineraries.
Big thanks to DGA - you made our UK trip an enjoyable and memorable vacation!
