My mom and I booked a trip to London to spend some quality time together and experience something new. We could only get away for a few days and had a long list of sights we wanted to see in a short window of time. Hence, we decided to book a private tour.
David Hamed is hands down one of the most pleasant, accommodating, and knowledgeable tour guides I have ever met. Many tour guides that I have experienced in the past have been stuffy, reciting facts with no personality, not David. Another review states that he feels like a friend, which is absolutely accurate, and proof that he can adapt to any audience. Not only can David provide a wealth of knowledge on the typical tourist "hot spots" he also can provide fun facts for all ages, like where certain scenes of Harry Potter were filmed. David goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable on your tour.
As much as I loved touring with David the first day around the city of London, I have to say that the second day was my favorite. On our second day trip we visited Windsor Castle and Highclere Castle. Am I obsessed with "Downton Abbey", castles, and British culture in general? Yes. So you would assume that David didn't have to do much, but here is what he did do that I felt was exceptional. Or rather, didn't do. He didn't hover. He knew the perfect balance of when to give more information and when to give my mom and I space to take it in. I would say that out of all of David's skills, his ability to read people and relate to them tops the list. When you are traveling in another country, you want to feel safe and comfortable while experiencing something different. You also want things to run smoothly. David makes this possible.
