Vivien is a first class guide that can fill you with detailed information on anything London. Very personable and flexible on what we wanted to see. She probably knows more about Westminster Abbey than the Prior! An excellent tour.

Vivien is a superb tour guide and a wonderful person to get to know! We have taken many private tours over the years and she is among the very best we have ever engaged! Why? She has the rare ability to perfectly balance sharing the history without lecturing; to help you understand the cultural context without introducing bias; the personality to move you through a busy itinerary without having it become overwhelming. We thoroughly enjoyed our full day tours with Vivien and know you will too!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jon and Karen - Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your Christmas tours in London and greatly appreciate your kind words. Viv x

Vivien was our guide for three days while we were in London. Our group included my husband, our two 17-year old sons, and our15-year old daughter. We discussed in advance what we would like to see while in London, and Vivien put a plan together. Her daily itineraries were well thought out, her pacing was perfect, and her lunch recommendations were spot on. So happy we used this service. You can't go wrong with Vivien. We spent 3 days together, and I consider Vivien a friend now.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dina - It was a great pleasure to meet you and your lovely family and show you around London during your stay. Very many thanks for your tour rating which is much appreciated. Viv x

An absolutely wonderful tour by one of the best tour guides ever. Vivien is warm, friendly, and accommodating. Totally the professional - on time, rich with knowledge and historical context on just about everything is sight. Her insights on where to be and when are invaluable, especially for a first time visitor. Advice and instruction on how to navigate in London and what to see after the tour is over is a big bonus. I highly recommend this very talented tour guide - especially if you enjoy history.

Vivien was a wonderful guide. She provided detailed public transit instructions in advance so I could plan my evenings in London - important for me, as I get "lost" easily on unfamiliar transit systems. Vivien's commentary during our tour was delightful and I gained many insights on London / British life and history. Great experience! I hope our paths will cross again sometime.

Vivien is an absolutely amazing guide! We highly recommend her. We booked her for a three day family tour of London (w/kids age 12 and 18). She did a fantastic job. We communicated via email before we arrived and discussed the things that most interest us. She did a great job customizing the tour so that there was something for everyone: architecture, royal history, art and macabre history. Vivien is knowledgeable, engaging and fun. Book her if she is available - you won't be disappointed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Garrick and the gang - It was a great pleasure to show you around London and I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your trip so much. With the State visit you were certainly here at a very historic time! Hope to see you all again one day - Viv x
