Cheryl SmithUnited States
We absolutely loved our day in Stonehenge & Bath! Patricia was awesome & we had great communication throughout our planning. Our group was originally 6 people and turned into 9, so Pat found another guide for us (Paul V) & they worked together to get our group everywhere and give us all the information we wanted on the tours. They were both polite, knowledgeable & super accommodating to our group. Thank you Pat & Paul! We would highly recommend either of them for this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for those kind words Cheryl. It was a real pleasure to meet you and all your lovely family. It was great to hear that you enjoyed our day together and hope that you have a great time in Greenwich tomorrow. Thank you again, Pat
Linda RydingUnited Kingdom
Patricia was very friendly and made my daughter and I feel very relaxed. The tour of London was excellent and her passion for London and historical knowledge was very impressive. I was amazed at how well she could talk to us and drive around London on a very busy day without seeming stressed at all. I managed to see everything of interest in just 4 hours that I couldn't possibly have managed on my own. I would definitely recommend Patricia to other tourists.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Linda, what a lovely review. I'm so glad that you both enjoyed yourselves and I hope you'll be back to London soon for a more relaxed visit. Wishing you and Emily a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too. Pat
Kathleen Zeak FichterUnited States
I will never forget this tour. It was truly a memorable experience. Patsy was amazing. She was very knowledgeable, thoughtful and personable. The tour was 6 hours, but it went so fast. I didn't want it to end. She remembered that it was my birthday and had a gift for me as well as for my travel companions. I highly recommend this tour and especially Patsy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, thank you for such a wonderful review Kathy. I’m glad you enjoyed your birthday, I hope you all had a good day at Windsor Castle too. I have heard that the Queen bakes a tasty birthday cake so I hope she had one ready for you when you visited. Wishing you, Patti and Denise a very Merry Christmas and a smashing New Year.
Felicity HomstedUnited States
Patricia was an absolutely lovely guide! We had a long layover in London-Gatwick and she was able to accommodate a whirlwind tour of London. We even managed to sneak in a stop at a local Fish and Chips shop. Patricia was very knowledgeable and such a pleasure to spend the afternoon with!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Felicity, it was a pleasure to meet yourself and Chuck. A Whirlwind Tour was a very apt description of our afternoon and I'm really pleased you enjoyed yourselves, as you said it was much better than sitting in Gatwick Airport, and we managed to find some "proper" fish & chips too.
Stephen KellyUnited States
Book this tour! Don't waste your time searching anymore...Patricia was great! So professional, so friendly and so knowledgable, I was on the edge of my seat all day listening. We saw the major landmarks, but really enjoyed the little details about London Patricia shared. The day was an amazing history lesson. I can't say enough. I think we'd do it again tomorrow if we could. Thanks for a wonderful day Patricia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Stephen and Terri for such a brilliant and lovely review. I hope that you enjoy Hamilton tonight and have a splendid time in London with the few days that you have left. Thank you again.
Cecilia Santos-BerkowitzUnited States
Patricia is an amazing guide. She's very knowledgeable, informative and made every minute count. She makes sure that we get to visit all the places we wanted and more. She took really great photos too! She's fun to talk to and we definitely give her a 5 star rating! Cecilia and Donah
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Cecilia, I hope you and Donah enjoyed dinner at The Shard. Have a safe journey home.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jasmin, it was lovely to meet you.
Cynthia FisherUnited States
Patricia was wonderful! She saw to every detail of our custom tour. Her knowledge and commentary was interesting. She is very personable and outgoing. Her vehicle was immaculate and her driving skill excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review Cynthia, I hope yourself and Ginger enjoyed the weekend and your visit to Tate Modern. I really enjoyed Highgate, a really unusual tour. Thank you once again, Pat
Eileen AustinUnited States
London is such a big city and it is helpful to have a guide like Patricia to make sense of all the important sights. Our party of 4 had a great time with her and the information she imparted was first class. Her London taxi cab had a see through roof which helps in seeing the really tall buildings. We saw some things that the big bus tours do not see, such as the memorial to unsung heros. I highly recommend Patricia for your next tour of London!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good Evening Eileen, It was a pleasure to spend time with you all and thank you so much for your lovely review. I could tell that you wanted to stay in Westminster Abbey a little longer but we had too much to see. I am also glad that you enjoyed The Tower and hopefully you remembered to stop at some stage and find somewhere nice to eat. I have pencilled in a visit to The British Museum as you sounded so enthusiastic about your planned trip, I hope you manged to get there today. Thank you again, Pat
Theresa ZelonisUnited States
We only had one full day in London so it had to be efficient. I booked a half day tour with Patricia and she showed up promptly at our lodging and filled the next four hours with sights and stories of London. My traveling companion who had been to a London several times before said that she learned things about the city she never knew. It was a steamy day in the 90's, but we were cool and comfortable in the cab. I would definitely recommend this tour with Patricia!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Theresa for your lovely review. Hope your well. Pat
Jaime PotyondyUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jaime
Kathleen ItoUnited States
Pat took us to many of London highlights, stopped in front and gave us lots of information about each place. My husband was very specific about where he wanted to go. She quickly mapped out the best route and covered all the places on his list. She knows London well. And it helps that she has her own car, one of those Black Taxis. She has such an easy disposition, we felt very comfortable with her right from the start. We highly recommend Pat for any tour you would like to take in London
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kathy, I'm pleased you all enjoyed yourselves. Say a big hello to Jim, Emiko and Mitchell too.
Kathleen ItoUnited States
Pat was a wonderful guide. She had lots of information and knows London well. As we were leaving town for our trip to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge, she pointed out various neighborhoods and buildings that might be of interest. There were just the four of us and it was so nice having our own personal tour as we watched many tours of 30 to 50 people in one group. Pat has a very friendly personality, we all felt at ease with her. It was very convenient that she drives her own car.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your lovely review Kathy, you were all great company and a pleasure to spend the day with.
Margaret JonesUnited States
I cannot express how pleased we were to work with ToursByLocals and especially Patricia (Pat) during our July 2019 trip to England !!! We highly recommend them for the seamless process of exploring options, asking questions and receiving timely responses, remaining in contact throughout the process and being willing to accommodate unexpected developments! Pat was a joy to work with and her enthusiasm and generosity made us feel like we were visiting Bath with a friend rather than a tour guide!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Maggie, I really enjoyed our day together, even the super fast visit to No1 The Crescent Museum, we were like tornadoes flying through there. I hope that Joey and yourself enjoyed Guernsey and also Cork. Thank you once again.
Maria TowneUnited States
We had a wonderful half day sightseeing tour with Pat. Martha said she felt like royalty being driven around in Pat's Black Cab! Even the rain didn't dampen our spirits. Kudos to Pat for a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words Jackie, I hope that you and Martha enjoyed your lunch and visit to Harrods. Pat
E.j. PotenteUnited States
Pat was a real English princess. On time, good ideas about what to see, very flexible. Can't say enough good things. Well worth the expense. A very charming person as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words E.J. It was a real pleasure to spend time with all of you today and have a great time tomorrow at The Tower, thank you once again. Pat
Samantha DamonUnited States
We LOVED hanging out with Patricia! She had a ton of information and was sweet and completely completely professional. She met us at our location and dropped us off with no hassle. She had snacks and water for us and it felt like a friend was showing us around the city. She offered to take pictures of us anytime we got out of the car and made a few extra stops that were specific to what we wanted to see. My group definitely recommends this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, thank you Samantha it was great to meet you and the Girls yesterday. Take care on those bikes today and enjoy yourselves.

Letta TaylorUnited States
We had a delightful day with Patricia. She is very knowledgeable and made the day fun for all of us(three generations). The black cab is comfortable and memorable. She made time for picture taking for the photographers in the family and catered to our needs and wants.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Letta, I very much enjoyed our day together to Stonehenge. Say a hello to Catherine, Kate and Susanna. Pat
Allan WatermanLake Forest, CALIFORNIA, United States
We have had several TBL guides over the years, none finer than Patricia. She is prompt, knowledgeable, engaging and very friendly. We enjoyed our day at Bath and Stonehenge very much. Her personal approach brought ancient history alive for us. When we're in London again I'll absolutely contract Patricia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Allan. It was a pleasure to meet and spend time with you, Cheryl, Jim and Randi. Have a great day tomorrow at Churchill's War Rooms and enjoy the rest of your holiday. Thank you again.
Allan WatermanLake Forest, CALIFORNIA, United States
Patricia picked us up at the airport, took us to our hotel to check in and clean up before taking us on a very informative and pleasant tour of Windsor Castle. She's an excellent guide and we're looking forward to our day at Stonehenge and Bath tomorrow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Allan for your kind words. I am looking forward to our trip too.
Vicki OlszewskiUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ooh, thank you Vicki.
John BerryUnited States
Pat is wonderful, knowledgeable and a very good driver. The hidden gems were terrific. We even got to meet the chairman of one of the gems and got a behind the scenes tour. I believe this was pure luck but without Pat we would have missed this extra gem. She was flexible since we had seen some of London beforehand. It was great to be picked up at our hotel, tour and be dropped off at Heathrow. Her Black cab was new, clean and with a large glass roof I would recommend this Lady and her tour to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words John, it was a real pleasure to meet you both. Please tell Marion that I haven’t forgot about that hat I tried on in Locks & Co, very tempted to go back and treat myself. Maybe on your next visit we could definitely pencil in a trip to Runnymede. Thank you again to you both. Pat
Stephanie ChristianUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, thank you Stephanie. Enjoy Paris.
Catherine WilkinsonTriangle, VIRGINIA, United States
Loved our tour with Patricia. This is a nice day tour out of the city. Bath was charming and Stonehenge was mystical.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Catherine.
Stephen GlaudelUnited States
Patricia gives a wonderful 'panorama' of London from her comfortable (and 'cool'!) black cab. We drove to see a great list of the city's highlights, but also several hidden gems. Highly recommended, especially for those who might be new to the city and want to 'see the forest, instead of just a handful of random trees'.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review Stephen, I hope yourself and Loretta are well. Thank you again, Pat
Kathleen RumfolaUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to meet you all yesterday. I hope you, Chuck and Eren have a great day today and find one the Doughnut Shops again. Thank you for my 5 *’s.
Frank RambuschUnited States
I did a fair amount of research before booking and decided to book with Pat based upon her good reviews. I was not disappointed. She is gracious, knowledgable and fun. We couldn't have spent our first day in London in a better way. I urge anyone who wants to have a delightful day seeing the highlights of London to book with Pat without hesitation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Frank, it was a pleasure to meet you and Anthony and I thoroughly enjoyed your company during our Tour. Thank you so much.
Kimberly JamesClermont, FL, United States
Had a wonderful day with Pat - couldn't have asked for anything more. We felt like we were spending the day with an old friend, she instantly put us at ease and is very knowledgeable. This day was probably our favorite day of our England Vacation. I wouldn't hesitate to go on an adventure with Pat - she's the BEST!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ahhh, Kimberly thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet and spend the day with you all. Say hello to the "Giggling Squid" for me. Thank you once again. Pat
