    Probably our favorite tour over two weeks in the UK and Ireland. Alex was a wealth of knowledge and really brought Londons history to life for our family. Our 11 and 12 year old boys even stayed engaged the entire time which is no small feat! While Alex had a plan for the best things for us to see, she was also more than willing to customize things to accommodate our wishes. I would highly recommend!

    Lucy was fabulous and so knowledgeable. We had the best time with her! She was able to take us all over London!

    Great morning in London. Chris was very informative and accommodating. Overall wonderful experience.

  • 05-Jun-2022

    Lucy was fantastic! We were able to have Lucy as our guide for all three days in London. She took us on a walking tour to Westminster, to the Tower of London, and through the British Museum. She was so patient and kind to our three children while providing incredibly knowledgeable information to all three stops! I highly recommend these tours and make sure to ask for Lucy!

    We actually had three tours through this company in one week- all with Dan as our tour guide. He was witty and extremely informative, as well as patient with our two young kids. My son kept interrupting him and we were very impressed with how he could both pay attention to him and then steer the conversation back to the tour. We actually asked to modify this walking tour to include a visit inside Westminster Abbey and the tour company got back to me right away to make the adjustments. They were very kind and attentive. Overall, I highly recommend this company and Dan!

    We brought our three kids (13, 10 and 7) to London and signed up for this and another tour. Denisa from Pinocchio Tours was our guide for both and she was fantastic. She did a great job engaging all kids across a large age spread (big difference between 13 and 7!) while also making the tours interesting for the adults. Highly recommended.

    This was by far the best tour we have ever done. With 3 young grandchildren, tours can be hectic. Denisa is the best guide EVER. So knowledgeable and kept young and old entertained. She should teach a class on how to give a tour. BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER!

    Our guide Denisa did an excellent job engaging our two daughters, ages 10 and 3, with our walk around London. She was very kind and knowledgeable, and the pace was just right for our young girls. She kept it interesting with the right mix of history and kids' stuff (a quick stop inside the Lego store, and a wonderful stroll through the park). She ended our walk with a lot of suggestions for lunch and other sites to see. It was time well spent! My daughter is asking if we can have another tour with her the next time we visit London!

    The guide Danny was kind and nice to the kids (6 and 12). He told some stories you will never know from a book. Very interesting and funny for all of us. We are German speaker, children go to an International school. Danny has showed a lot of patience when he had to repeat the information several times and showed a great sense of humor. And last but not least he knew some great views and places to go beside the common sightseeing spots.

    I was very impressed with the way the tour was organized and customized for us, and I really appreciated how professional and how kind and friendly the team were. During our London Highlight tour, our guide Danny was very informative and with his sense of humor was able to keep the whole family entertained, including the kids! At the end of the tour, we thought we knew everything there was to know about London, and our kids (10 and 13 years old) couldn't stop talking about it! This is a memory that will stay with us, and as we had such a good time, we can only recommend that you try it as well, you won't be disappointed!
