James took me where ever I wanted to go at my fast pace. I saw 4-5 times more than I would have in a group tour.
James the tour guide on this tour is extremely knowledgable about all aspects of London, and seemingly knows everyone in the city as well. A fount of information on everything from history, to Royals, to music, to science, to pubs...just about everything. He's also a delight to know. I felt like this tour was worth every penny and will definitely be looking James up the next time I'm in London. You can't ask for a better private tour guide, and he will accommodate your person preferences in setting up the tour. Highly recommend.
We recently had the most wonderful trip.We went to London England for 3 days,then to Southampton for two days .then embarked on a 14 day Summer Solstice cruise to Norway.ending with 3 days in Windsor.The highlight of our London trip was an all day tour of London with JamesWe are still talking about his knowledge,his pride in England,his wonderful companionship,and his sense of humour-oh and his umbrella!!!We cannot thank James enough for the wonderful day he showed us-it was the best day ever.He also incorporated my love for all things Harry Potter into our day-Daigon Alley-Nocturne Alley,memorbilia.Thankyou James,that meant a lot to me.He took us to his favourits Pubs,with great new beer-and a Gin Pub.He picked us up at our hotel in Kensington,and took us back-as the tube was so very overwhelming-James was amazing-we learned so much history and saw everything we could see that day.-he was a walking encyclopedia.Thankyou Karolina Kruze for pairing him with us,and again Thankyou James-and don't wait too long to marry that beautiful girlfriend you have-life is too short.We also spent a wonderful day on the Isle of Wight at Queen Victoria and Alberts summer house.Loved every minute.Also 3 days at the Runnymeade on the Thames and absolutely loved Windsor.-and Norway was unbelieibly beautiful.We will always have these memories-and especially you James.Thankyou.
We had an absolutely amazing day with our tour guide, James. Karolina did a phenomenal job of pulling together what we wanted to do! With only two days in London, we arranged a full day tour. We did one day on our own doing things we thought we would not need a guide for: the London Eye, the Tower of London and the Churchill War Room. The day of our tour we saw everything else we wanted, plus more. James took us to the Mall, outside of Buckingham Palace. We saw the Colonels review, which was amazing! A total surprise for us. We also got to see Prince William! We went to St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square and saw so many other sights. We had lunch in a wonderful pub that James recommended. We chose to have a car and driver as my Mom would not have been able to handle all the walking. The driver was fantastic and the car was perfect. New, clean and stocked with water and tissues. When Mom couldn't walk any more, she was able to stay safely with the car and driver. I highly recommend Viator and James!
This was a great way to explore the city! Our guide, Sam, was knowledgeable and gave us a lot of insite that helped us enjoy our stay in London. With the exception of a tube ride to see Abby Road Studios we basically walked everywhere. Wear comfortable shoes!
James is, without a doubt, the best guide we've had or could have hoped for. I booked a walking tour with my mother in a wheelchair and my 6-year-old son in May. We saw all the highlights of the city in one day, in addition to a few hidden gems. Not only is James a walking encyclopedia of everything British, but he has been part of its history through his and his family's impressive military service. We learned more in one day than history class teaches you in 12 years, and had a rollicking good time doing so. He ensured we all learned on our level, were engaged, and saw/discussed things we were interested in Harry Potter? Check. The Queen and her Guards? Check. Bathrooms? Check. Scholarly discourses on royalty and beheadings? Check. Lego Store? Check. In addition, he is hands down the most entertaining person to be around. His humor, brutal honesty, wit and intellect make him a stand-out. We would have kept him for a week all around England if we had stayed, and my mother still talks about wanting to have taken him home. My son still talks about him going with us to the Lego store and actually knowing about Lego too. I'm thrilled he was able to provide us with a wonderful, memorable experience we won't soon forget, and I can't wait to go back. I've already recommended him to others and will wholeheartedly continue doing so in the future. Thanks James!
Great day touring London!! We met our guide Davey in our hotel lobby and started our tour right outside the hotel in the Tower Section of London. Davey was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day. He customized the tour to what we wanted to see and we even had a great lunch at a pub. We saw so much of London that we wouldn't have seen or known the story behind if we had seen it. I recommend this tour to anyone that wants to get the most out of the town they are visiting.
Davey gave us the perfect day tour - all day to be exact. He was very personable, knowledgeable and took us to parts of London that we would have never found on our own. And since we had a couple of special places we wanted to see, he was more than happy to take us to those points of interest. Davey also showed us how to ride the Underground and buses in the most efficient manner. We had a fantastic day and absolutely our most favorite day in London. I highly recommend the tour and ask for Davey.
No way to beat Keith's knowledge of all things royal - he was incredibly informative and great company!
We had a great time with Davey our guide who met us at Westminster and walked us all the way from Buckingham palace via Piccadilly Circus, through 7 dials with a stop for lunch which is seemed quite keen to do and we enjoyed the good quality pizza joint he recommended, over the Thames, via the Globe to local market. He was an appropriate pick for the make-up of our party.
Davey Peacock was our tour guide for 1 1/2 days where we walked all throughout London. It was the first time I really got to know London and its different neighborhoods. It was fun, informative, relaxing. We had a great time. Much in part to Davey's fun attitude, relaxed nature, and informative style.
Sinead was engaging, intelligent ,funny, and very accommodating was a delightful day
We had the privilege of meeting and having Davey tour us through London for our first visit. Not only was he knowledgeable but very personable. I highly recommend the 7 hr private tour because we were able to customize our adventure and see the things we had on our must see list but when we were tired of being tourists, Davey took us to more residential areas, parks, etc. to see London through his eyes. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and felt like we made everlasting memories! Davey was flexible and accommodating to our needs. If you're in London and want to see the highlights of the city plus more...book a tour through Viator and ask for Davey P! :
Davey was a wonderful walking tour guide, he knew the City very well and was entertaining throughout the four hours we were with him.
James was absolutely one of the best tour guides we have ever had. He was so accommodating and he truly was interested in what we wanted to see. Full of knowledge and interesting stories with a great personality. I would highly recommend James for any tour.
The perfect way to see London. From the beginning, the company sends you a detailed questionnaire to customize your tour and were in communication up until the day before. Our tour guide, Joe, was perfect for our group, showing us not only the sites we wanted to see, but the vibrant heart of the city as well. He had a genuine enthusiasm for his job, which is the essence of any tour. This is perfect for those looking to see the city instead of just seeing the sites.
I can not say enough about our private guide we had for the day in London. I brought my 16 year old granddaughter and thought a group tour or hop on hop off bus might not keep her interest. Charley was perfectly suited, knowledgeable, fun and made it so great for us. We saw the sights but we also went to areas off the beaten path that my granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed. She even picked out a local establishment for lunch that was so fantastic we could not have found it or done better. It was a very successful day.

A great way to squeeze in all of the sites you want to see in a day. Our tour guide was amazing and took us to all the sites we wanted to see, pointed out sites we didn't know about, took us to a pub from 1676 for lunch, and showed us around the city on foot and by underground. A great way to get to see the entire city in a day!!
We had a good time. The tour was well informed. It was a good way to see London. We do recommend it.
Ashleigh spent the whole day getting to know us and sharing really cool information and bits of knowledge about London that we'd likely have never gotten to know on a large group tour or just exploring on our own. It was a great way to get to know the area before spending a couple of days off on our own.
This is an excellent way for the first time visitor to get their bearings in London and to ask questions like how do I use the tube? Our guide Ashleigh was quite knowledgeable, took use where we wanted to go, and adjusted her pace and conversation to our needs.
