What a day
, Jun 2019
Gio was the most awesome guide we have ever used! He addressed our wants and as a matter of point went one further then needed. As we were saying our goodbyes I mentioned that we missed one stop that we originally discussed, he told us to follow him and took us there even though we were way over our scheduled time. That’s true customer service!!!
David was our tour guide and he did an excellent job of showing us the sites of London. He was very flexible when our flight delay caused us to start a bit later than scheduled. He never made us feel rushed and had such a wealth of information. We really enjoyed our tour and David's suggestions for places to visit during our trip.
This was hands down the highlight of our trip to London! Our tour guide, Gio, was so welcoming and knowledgeable. He met us at out hotel and took us to everything we wanted to see. We took our two daughters, ages 2 and 4, and Gio made everything so easy. Such a fun family trip! Thanks, Gio!
I highly recommend this custom tour to everyone. I was limited on time, so I booked this so I could pack as much as possible into one day, They send you a survey within an hour of booking. You can choose to pack your day full of things or go slow and enjoy the highlights. The best thing about a private tour is it is customized around what you like. I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, so my guide Ollie showed me all the filming locations. I also got to see the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, which was one of the highlights of my day. I learned so much about the history of London and about the great fire of London.
The morning of our booked tour, my husband woke up with an inflamed, very painful area in front of his ear. We knew he needed medical help. So when our guide arrived, we asked for his advice. This wonderful young man, Gio, not only guided us through the National Health Service System, he stayed with us and spent extra time until my husband had received a diagnosis and medication. Gio was so kind and compassionate, and went above and beyond. He offered to reschedule, agreed to get us to the urgent car, spent hours talking with us while we waited. It turns out we learned a lot about London just sitting and talking. Gio was very, very knowledgeable, articulate, and funny. He got us through what could have been an extremely bad experience with good humor and kindness. Then he insisted on escorting us to our next activity, even though it was well beyond our allotted time. Gio was the most amazing young man, and we will never forget his kindness and his extremely good tour of London!
Gio was an outstanding tour guide. We visited many outstanding London sites including the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. We also got to use the Tube and buses to get to different areas. The tour ended at Tower Bridge where we had a great lunch at a restaurant recommended by Gio. What a view!
A terrific tour by all accounts. Could not be more pleased with Gio. What a gentleman! Learned so much about London from a polite and engaged tour guide! Rained on our tour day but that did nothing to slow us down! Will do this again to learn more about the great city of London!
We had a great day exploring London on our Private Tour with our guide Gio. He was filled with so much knowledge and gave us so much history of old and new London. He also helped us with navigating around the city and emailed me after the tour with more suggestions and advice.
Thank you for a great day!!
Spent the day with Gio. He is enthusiastic, kind and incredibly knowledgeable about the city of London. He definitely gives you a great overview of the city. He could answe most of the questions we threw at him. Delightful young man.
We had a wonderful experience!! Our guide was Gio, and Gio knows London! He is professional, knowledgeable, and makes the tour fun, customized, and comfortable! We had a fabulous time because of Gio!! Kathy and Paul Heinrich, Richmond, Va
