Date: Jan 18/20

We spent a long day touring with Cory and all enjoyed it. He met us at 7:30am and we got back to our hotel at 9:30pm! He never tired. He was completely customer oriented, and worked hard to meet the individual needs of our group. He adjusted timing based on our input. His stories were interesting and informative. At some point, we had enough of royal history, and would have liked some quiet time on the drive home. But all in all, we had a great day with Cory.

Koray is a remarkable tour guide, and he is generous with his time and effort. We had a remarkable experience. Koray provide backstory during the drive, as well as direct commentary about what we saw in Bath, Stonehenge and Salisbury. He also made a remarkable effort to give us further recommendations for the rest of our time in London. We could not have been happier. Thank you Koray!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so very much for your lovely words and comment, Robert. We really had a great time together in the jewels of English heritage. I hope you all enjoyed the rest of your stay in London too. Looking very much forward to seeing you again in our lovely country. Sending my very best wishes and love to you all.

Koray was an incredibly engaging and informative guide. His knowledge of English history is amazing and we played "who could stump Koray" because you just couldn't stump this man! Koray was always polite and looking for ways to teach us new things about England. He gave us so many excellent recommendations regarding places to see and visit after our tour was over. On a side note- one of our travelers was under the weather and he took pains to ensure his comfort. Koray- Thank you for a lovely day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was again great luck for me to host my NY people in our world’s famous heritage, Stonehenge. I’m glad that you have enjoyed every moment we spent together in Salisbury plain. I am very much looking forward to seeing you here in our country again and very pleased to see that you’re home safely! Sending my love and very best wishes to everyone, Darius!

Korey was absolutely the best guide we have had the opportunity to hire. Beyond knowledgeable, focused on the highlights we were interested in, he keep my wife and 3 adult children entertained with commentary, education and humility for 12 hours. At the end of your we asked for more stops, which was not expected, and he continued. We have experienced many private tours over the years and Korey was the best to date. Thank you again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your lovely words, Troy. It was total fun and we had a great day out together. Truly I did not want to finish the day with you guys, that’s why I just wanted to make sure you see everything that you should see on our way. Very much looking forward to seeing you again for other lovely places to see and discover together. All the best…

We had a wonderful tour. Cory picked us up at the hotel in London and took us on an 11 hour tour. His knowledge is incredible - he kept us informed every step of the way. What could have been a stressful and tiring tour if we had done it on our own turned out te be a very relaxing and informative experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind words, Arthur. It was my pleasure to spend a great time with your lovely family in beautiful Cotswolds and in the city of dreaming spires. It was lucky it was a wonderful, sunny day and I met a great family. I hope you also enjoyed your Eastbourne visit. Sending my love to everyone, Arthur.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gary, thank you so very much for your lovely review. It was a very special day with special people like you and I truly enjoyed our journey through the timeline of English history and English royalty, which also made my day special.

WE thoroughly enjoyed our time with Koray....if you enjoy history, Koray will explain much of what you see in the Dover to London arena from a historical perspective. We unfortunately chose to do more that we realistically could do, but Koray tried his best to accomodate our wishes. He showed us many of the sites around London, as well as a drive through Canterbury, and then walking along the Dover cliffs. I would recommend picking less to do so that there is more time to see what you really want to.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Chris, thank you very much for your high rate and lovely feedback. It was again a lovely combination of a beautiful day and wonderful people for me. It's so true that the time was quite tight but it didn't stop us from making the most of Dover to London arena anyway. I'm sure we will compensate this next time in another jewel of English heritage and I will be the one looking forward very much to seeing you guys here in England. Sending my very best wishes to everyone, Chris...

We were pleased with this tour. Our tour guide, Koray, was well organized from the beginning to the end of the tour. We visited first the amazing Salisbury Cathedral where you can see one of the copies of Magna Carta. It is worth the trip to see this. Then, we drove to Stonehenge. Koray explained very well the importance of the Stonehenge which now I could appreciated more. He recommended Strawberry wine from the Stonehenge gift shop which was tasteful. Last tour was the Roman Bath which was inspiring.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your lovely review Marietta. After our London tour, it was great to be together in holy Salisbury Cathedral, mystic Stonehenge and lovely Georgian Bath & Roman Baths. We learned, laughed, tasted and had serious fun on that day too. I’m sending my very very best wishes to my “Dittos” and “Queens” individually. As again, I do hope someday some time that we can come together and enjoy this lovely country together...

A millions thanks to Koray for making our London trip a memorable one. He is a tour guide extraordinaire. Koray welcomed us warmly at Heathrow Airport. He is a careful driver. We were lucky to book two tours with him. He has a vast knowledge in history and answered our questions politely. What struck me most about Koray is his attitude- kind and respectful. He also anticipates your needs. He treated us as if we were members of his family. He always assisted my oldest sister who has knee arthritis.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marietta, words may be not enough to say how I feel and enjoyed being with your precious and lovely family. We truly had an amazing time in London; the Big Apple is always my favourite city and knowing the fact that I have now a family in Manhattan that makes me very happy. I should be the person to thank you millions of times I guess. That obviously was my luck to spend a great time in a fascinating Roman city with my wonderful people. I will be eagerly awaiting your next visit ��

We travel a lot around the world and had many private guides. Cory is one of our favorite ones. He is very knowledgable, extremely kind and helpful, worked very hard to fulfill our needs. We were traveling with our elderly parents and children, eight people, not an easy crowd. He got us a great car, very comfortable, treated my father-in-law who is with health issues, with kindness and compassion and made sure we all had a good time. I greatly recomend him if you want to have an amazing time in London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nikolai, many thanks for this nice review. As always I say, this is why I’m totally addicted to my profession thanks to lovely guys like you. I’m so thankful that you also made me feel that I’m the part of your family. What a wonderful day we had together with your blessed family. Sending my very best wishes and love from London y’all.

Most professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Kory made the tour memorable and certainly worth both my money and time. He is a natural guide both at sharing information but also at pacing. He pays close attention to the comfort needs of the customer. His vast experience in being a tour leader is visible from the moment you meet him. He leaves you feeling that you have a new friend which is most valuable particularly for those of us traveling alone and far from home. Thank you for a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Joe, you said it. This is why I love what I'm doing as almost every day I am gaining precious friends like you. It was another wonderful day and the time we spent together was unforgettable. I will very much look forward to seeing you again here in this lovely country to share the best moments again Joe. Have a lovely journey home and please do take care of yourself, my friend!

We had a wonderful day with Koray today! He was a fantastic guide of London and was very patient and thoughtful with our group of 11. We saw more than we ever expected and he was extremely knowledgeable of English history and of the London landmarks. He helped to develop a personal plan which made our tour extra special. We will definitely use him again when we come to England and highly recommend him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your lovely words Nikki. What a great day it was. London is always charming and the good thing is enjoying this city is even greater with a bunch of lovely people like you. It would be my honour to be your tour guide again in our rich heritage.

Koray was a very knowledgeable and personable guide. He was able to complete a full day in London and beyond and adapt to the changes in traffic, crowds, heat, and other things that often get in the way when trying to see everything in a short period of time. We would definitely use Koray again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your excellent feedback Sandra. I’m happy to see that you all enjoyed the day out. London is always busy and we guides, always need to know all the shortcuts to get most of London in a limited period of time. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you here in London again Sandra.

Koray was an excellent guide. He provided my family with a very wonderful experience at Harry Potter Studio Tour. His knowledge of the experience helped greatly in making this visit memorable for my 9-year old granddaughter. He provided safe and comfortable transportation and always knew the best way to get places. This tour was a continuation of the morning tour of London. We would definitely book with Koray again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your lovely words, Sandra. Spending a day with all lovely Potterhead family in Harry Potter’s shrine was priceless. Likewise, I’ve enjoyed every moment we spent together in London too. I’m sending my very best wishes to you all and hope to meet you again here in London, Sandra. All the best...

Koray is a great guy and a great tour guide. He is the ONLY person we will ever use again when we come back to spend time in London. We came in off a cruise, and he was right there, we were exhausted, and left the day quite open, not know how we would feel. He crafted our time with him in a way that made my 8 and 10 year old as happy as my brother with mobility issues and my 84 year old mom. Not an easy task. He is worth every penny you spend on him and more. Vehicle was very clean and comfortable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nick, thank you so very much for your lovely feedback which warmed my heart. I will never forget the day we had all together. I was so lucky that I felt like a member of your family. What a great day out it was full of culture, history, giggles, fun and of course, the magic of the blues. I am very much looking forward to seeing you guys again as my agenda is ready for you ;) Lots of love from London…

What an amazing experience. From pick up to drop off, Koray made the experience a magical one for our family. He integrates himself into the family culture and provides opportunities throughout the tour that align to interests of all parties. Koray's positive attitude and sense of humor makes the time go by unnoticed. Bath and Stonehenge were a memorable and a must do moment. The tour is a treat, don't miss out on this opportunity. Koray--thank you for being a God sent on this trip for our family!

Cory was gracious, sensitive, and caring. My wife has Alzheimer's. This was a private tour of London on June 28, 2019 with my wife and oldest daughter. He had a general concept preplanned of the highlights of London to see, but was flexible in our itinerary. Throughout the tour he shared his extensive historical knowledge and stories of interest. The places visited were selected to be easy to access and enjoy. We would rate him an outstanding tour guide, and it was the best excursion of our trip abroad.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bob, your kind words and lovely family mean a lot to me and I do appreciate your lovely feedback, it warms my heart and made me smile. We all enjoyed our day out in London and London is more beautiful with the beautiful people like you. Xx

Koray was very personable and funny and appreciated our involvement in what he told us. We saw a tremendous amount of Canterbury and got a good feel for the town. The little boat tour was fun. His schedule was flexible based on what we wanted to do. His ability to get us to the tunnels at the white cliffs was remarkable. He accompanied us into the limestone tunnels from WWII and guided our long walk along the cliffs. His knowledge of history was exceptional.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Donald, very good to hear from you. What a beautiful and lovely day we had in Canterbury and Dover. We laughed a lot and I am very pleased you enjoyed our White Cliffs of Dover experience :))) I would love to take you to a different region as our English heritage is full of lovely places for lovely people like you.

Kory was a great guide. Very knowledgeable. It was awesome to see how excited he got discussing things. My only complaint was I felt as though he got long winded on some things and spent too much time discussing them...and it cost us a lot of time being able to see other things. We had to rush through St. Pauls which was one of the things that was important to us. But he was great in London Eye and giving us history! Would use again for sure, just point out time constraints.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tara thank you very much for your lovely words. I do remember at the point where I was talking about Henry the 8th and the massive history of the dynasties and the Royal Family. That was only an appetizer :) I really enjoyed spending time with you guys on that day. I will take your concern on board and tailor my time management more concisely. I hope that next time you are in London or in our beautiful English heritage, I will be able to show that. Sending my love to your lovely family from London.
