Clients’ feedback

"On my first ever visit to London, I had a private 8 hour city tour with Liz. I contacted her ahead and asked her to customize as she desired to show me "what an American should see on one day in London". She did a superb job: she is incredibly knowledgeable about British history, the locations we visited, and even took me to a couple of "special" spots: such as an operating room theater/museum - as I am a physician. Cannot rate her highly enough! I will be contacting her for my next visit to London." (HG - Minnesota, USA)

"Liz was fantastic! She was so pleasant to be with and knowledgeable about all the many things we saw and did. It was my husband and I and our 5 children and she did great with all of them and really catered to them and our family. I would highly recommend her!!" (DF - USA)

"I think this company is very very lucky to have Elizabeth as a guide. She is intuitive to what her clients need, insightful to what they want to see and to know, and ingenious in giving them wonderful and fulfilling tours showing - as in my case - London, a city she loves. Thank you Elizabeth!" (DS - USA)

"Liz was amazing! She started with Winston Churchill, and didn't stop until we closed at the Tower of London. Her communication before our trip was very good. She let me know what I needed to purchase ahead of time to make sure our tour went smoothly. I learned so much on our 1/2 day tour. I'm a little sad I didn't book a whole day with her. It was all worth it!" (JJ - Napa Valley, USA)

"Elizabeth was superb. Her kindness, depth of knowledge, and unfailing cheerfulness were outstanding. She was patient with any question, and gave us the inspiration and ideas for a more extensive future visit to London. Our focus today was on Spitalfields, as there are ancestral connections to the neighborhood. Elizabeth's phenomenal knowledge concerning dates of buildings gave us clues as to which ones would likely have been visited by our ancestors" (DW - USA)

"We had a lovely day with Elizabeth in London. We were able to see all the sights we had agreed on prior to meeting and she was very knowledgeable about all of the historical sites and London history. She was a very engaging personality . We enjoyed very much spending the day with her. She was very helpful in giving us great directions to meet up as this was our first trip to London. She was great at getting back to us prior with any questions and details. I would recommend Elizabeth for London!"
(KD - USA)

================================================================

I was born in the North of England but spent part of my childhood living in India and the Middle East. I moved to London for a year to study on a postgraduate course and never left - working, bringing up my children and developing my career in guiding here. Apart from a few years living in Japan and Singapore London has been my home for 30 years.

I believe there is something for everyone here, 2000 years of history rubbing shoulders in a contemporary city with modern architecture, fashion and art.

Whatever you are interested in, whether it is castles, palaces, traditions, galleries, museums or modern culture I can tailor a tour for you.

My bespoke tours include walking tours, tours by public transport ( bus, tube, train or riverboat), or I can organise a car with a driver or a minibus. I am very experienced in facilitating tours for clients with disabilities.

Within London we can cover the major sites--Westminster Abbey, Royal London, Changing of the Guard, Churchill War Rooms, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London or explore  less well known districts like Bermondsey, Shoreditch or Spitalfields. London is famed for its museums and galleries. So that you do not miss any of the highlights I can offer you private guided tours of the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the National Gallery amongst others.

Out of London Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Salisbury, Bath, Dover, Leeds Castle, Hever Castle and Canterbury are a few of the many wonderful places that can be easily reached in a day trip.

As well as being a Blue Badge Tour Guide ( the best qualification in guiding) I am also a City of London Guide, City of Westminster Guide and Tate Gallery guide, so wherever we go you'll be in good hands.

I hope to see you soon....

Liz
