Had a wonderful private tour with Ron to the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey. Ron was unbelievable. The amount of history and information he has about every square foot of these locations is astounding. He was very personable and even took pictures of us throughout the tour. He knew exactly where to focus and timed everything so perfectly. Such a great way to end our trip in London.

We had the most amazing time at the Tower of London. Our guide, Dani, was absolutely lovely and so informative. She was engaging, and told fascinating stories. We had a truly wonderful time and hope to book another tour with this amazing company when we come back next year.

What a wonderful introduction to the city of London. Everything about my experience booking with Gio was effortless. He answered all of my questions promptly and arranged a private, full-day tour that included Changing of the Guard, The Tower of London and Westminster Abbey. Our guide, Charlotte T, was not only delightful, but impressively knowledgeable about all things London. She ensured the day went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend to first time and return visitors alike!!

A great tour! Private London Tours was able to put together a tour that worked for us. Started with a pickup at the Sofitel Hotel in Heathrow, then a tour of Windsor Castle, lunch, transport to London, a driveby tour of sites in London and then a tour of the crown jewels and London Tower. Charlotte was excellent and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. At the end of the day she walked us to the train station with directions on taking the train back to Heathrow and our hotel. Communication was great regarding where to meet, etc. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Gio took the time to match us up with the guides most suited to each day’s itineraries. Our guides, Alan and Aaron, were well informed, charming and interesting people themselves. Highly recommend!

We had an incredible day tour with Gavin. Born and raised in London, he was a wealth of information and knew every alley of the city. He was an absolute joy and his knowledge of everything we saw was incredible. We walked from our hotel to the Tower of London - on the way he showed us many old sights of London and pointed out some locations where Harry Potter was filmed, which wasn't part of our tour. We then took a black cab to Westminster Abbey where he continued to be an excellent tour guide. He chose an amazing place for us to have lunch (a traditional pub) before we headed to the Churchill War Rooms. Again, his knowledge was detailed and well delivered. He was simply amazing and everything about this tour was excellent, I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Tuvimos un día muy agradable en nuestro paseo, guiados por Joanna. Es un tour intenso, ya que fueron casi 12 horas, pero valió mucho la pena. La salida de Londres fue a las 7:30, y nos tomó casi 3 horas llegar a Bath. Las explicaciones de Joanna durante el trayecto y al estar en los lugares fueron interesantes y profundas. Se nota que sabe y que ama lo que hace. Nuestro chofer, Shoroff, también fue muy amable, y se detenía donde fuese necesario. Luego fuimos por la campiña inglesa hacia The Cotswolds, de los que visitamos Lacock (a media hora de camino desde Bath), y finalmente Castle Combe, un lugar minúsculo que parece sacado de un cuento. El regreso a Londres tomó otras 3 horas. Gracias a Private London Tours por la organización y ejecución de este maravilloso tour.

I Was so impressed by the service I received. From the initial email response to the drop off at the train station. Our guide Joanna was so nice and professional. Our driver Shorof was amazing. The way he was able to get us up close and personal to our numerous destinations was mind blowing. This team made us feel special and went above and beyond for our short trip to London. I highly recommend. I will be booking my next years trip ASAP.
