Richard's passion for and knowledge of his subject was inspiring. We learned so much about British history, culture and art. His energy and flexibility was a huge asset as we were able to pack in a great number of sites in a single day. We highly recommend touring with Richard.

Richard was our blue badge tourist guide for a full day tour of London and Windsor Castle. Knowledge aside which was excellent, I must compliment the UK on having official tourist guides such as Richard. The service we received was of such a high standard that my sceptical husband who argued with me over the cost of a private tour went as far as saying it was worth every penny. Our children loved Richard, he guides in such a way that it makes fun and entertaining for the kids too. We booked our tour via a word of mouth recommendation but was surprised Richard does not promote his Tripadvisor presence, but I can understand why, he needs not to worry about promoting himself as I am sure he is in very high demand as it is. We highly recommend the driver guiding services Richard provides, it is so convenient. He took care of our Airport transfers, our tour in a very new, clean and comfortable Mercedes with built in WiFi and also our entrance tickets to all the attractions we visited without having to queue as well as our musical night out. We will be coming back to London Richard with my sister and her daughters. Look forward to hearing from me very soon. Well done and thank you for making our holiday truly unforgettable, we mean it.

Booked a 4 hour tour of London essentials driving tour. Richard is extremely professional and a wealth of knowledge. We requested to be picked up from the Eurostar train station as we were coming from Paris to see London for a few days. He picked us up in a clean Mercedes van. Drove all through out London with plenty of photo stops. Gave us tips for where to eat and what to do on the other days, even told us the best place to stand to watch the changing of the guards the next day. Definitely would use again.

We booked the half day tour of London and had Rumiana as our tour guide. Even though English is not her first language she did a super job of explaining everything above and beyond a basic tour.
She took her time with us allowing us to get out and take as many pictures as we wanted at all the points of interest. Never felt any pressure to keep things moving due to time constraints.

Highly recommend this tour company

Richard made our day trip through London fun and informative! He showed up at our hotel promptly early morning in a beautiful clean top of the line Mercedes van. We were a family of seven with children and We were driven around in such comfort. Richard made sure we visited everything we had on our agenda and more. From the changing of the guards at Buckingham, to the London Tower and celebrity sites he took us to front of the lines. Richard was equipped with umbrellas for us all and was so helpful bringing our stroller in and out of the vehicle. We learned so much and his personality made us feel we had known him for ever. Richard even arranged private vehicles to bring our large group the theater. Definitley a memorable trip made possible through him! Would confidently recommend him to anyone coming into London and we will book again with him!
