Richard took 7 of us (4 teenage girls and 3 adults) to Stonehenge, Lacock, and Castle Combe. He was excellent at adapting his tour to our interests (e.g. pointing out Harry Potter shooting locations). He kept us on pace for the day, in spite of our need to take loads of photos...hoping for one that would be worthy of posting on Instagram. We loved his passion and enthusiasm. He also gave us half of a London tour as we drove out of town to Stonehenge- sort of a bonus. I highly recommend hiring him as your guide - worth every cent!

We shared a day with Richard during our stay in London in September. Richard was by far superior to any guide we've ever had and we've had a few. He is professional; courteous, patient and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE!! The ancient Roman Wall at The Tower of London was amazing! We also went to Windsor and his vehicle is very nice! My husband has a food allergy and he took time to find us a location for lunch in Windsor. It was so very pleasant and enjoyable!! We regretted having to say goodbye to him!

We booked a tour with a different guide, who asked Richard to assist since there were many tours. We lucked out. Richard should definitely advertise more, he is wonderful. Beware of pirate guides who are not licensed to work In London as a guide. With Richard we were able to get to every location with ease and see all the different sites. We had two young children and Richard was able to hit all the high points and make it fun for them and for us. He was wonderful and would definitely recommend him to others.

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.
