Dyan LevyUnited States
Mark was the greatest tour guide! He was professional, interesting, smart and fun to be with. He engaged our three children and personalized our tour to meet our interests of Harry Potter and the Beatles. In the four hours we spent with him we saw all of London. He used our time efficiently and the 4 hours flew by so fast it left us wanting even more. He even kept in touch with us after the tour throughout our trip and when we returned home to make sure we had the best experience possible in London.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dyan, than you so much for those lovely comments. I had a wonderful time with you and your family. All the best for the future. Mark
Steven MickelsOHIO, United States
Mark was great. A true professional yet very kind. When he dropped us off at the airport we felt like we were leaving behind a friend. We would highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steven, thank you so much for such a lovely review. It was a pleasure being in your company. You Billy and Cody, made it an easy day for me. Lots of laughs as well as some history thrown in to. All the best for your ventures in South Africa. Mark
Robert AltschulerUnited States
Mark was a fabulous tour guide and we can recommend him for anyone interested in a fun, informative, impeccably planned tour of London. His Black Taxi was clean, comfortable and a pleasure to ride in with large windows and easy in and out. Best of all, he could park in many places where private cars could not allowing us easy access to many venues and sites which would otherwise take more time to enter. He still loves London and his enthusiasm is infectious. Book him if you can!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Robert, thank you so much for this review. Yes I still love London! I hope the rest of your holiday was enjoyable too. Mark
Mark is an outstanding guide who is flexible, knowledgeable, friendly and he was able to engage with the whole family. We had a wonderful time with him as he showed us the sights of London and his experience as a policeman, taxi driver and tour guide really showed as he regaled us with the history, culture and lifestyle of London and it's people. Our youngest daughter really took a liking to him and we highly recommend him to show you the real London that not too many visitors would see for themselves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Richard, thank you So much for that lovely review. You have a wonderful family with two lovely daughters and it was a pleasure to show you around my city. Enjoy the rest of your holiday
Aaron portesPUnited States
Mark was on time and very informative. His driving was impeccable! ( this is coming from one who gets car sick)We had made a request to see places off the beaten path but also the regular sites and he hit it spot on! The knowledge he has is very detailed, you could tell he thoroughly enjoys what he does. If you get a chance to use Mark K, you will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aaron, thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure taking you around London. If you’re back in London again, let me know, and if I’m around, would love to meet up and see how you are. Kind regards Mark

Traveled to Stonehenge and Bath in Mark's comfortable black cab is just beyond words! He offered to provide his own sweater for my mom as the weather was too chilly! Mark is very understanding towards my mom's mobility and also ensuring everybody was comfortable enough to understand the historic view of both places. First Malaysian tourists and I believe more to come! Thank you Mark for being awesome, understanding and your humour is just amazing! Making us safe always was very much grateful too.

Truly enjoyed the trip and service provided by Mark! I traveled with my 70 year old mom and 12 year old daughter. My mom has difficulty in her mobility, and Mark is very understanding in ensuring that my Mom didn't have to work that far, and his cab was ever ready wherever possible despite heavy rain and cold weather in London. He "lent" his arm to provide the stability as a walking stick for my mom - I sincerely appreciate it! Thank you Mark.
Roger ZacherUnited States
What a great guide, very intelligent with lots of information. Truly a gentlemen. Tours by Locals should be happy and pleased to have him under their wing. Dr Roger & Janet Zacher
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Roger, you and Janet were wonderful company. It made for a very enjoyable day. And Thank you for the review, kind words that are very much appreciated.
Victor DesLaurierUnited States
We toured with Mark on our first day in London and he exceeded our expectations! He is incredibly knowledgeable with respect to well known and not so well known London history, attractions, architecture and notable people. He is also incredibly nice, interesting and fun! There were 4 of us and we took a 6 hour cab/walking tour as an introduction to London. It's a great way to start your trip to London and then decide which sites you want to visit in more detail. We highly recommend him! Vic&Denise/Chicago
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Victor, thank’s so much for that great review. Thoroughly enjoyed my day with you as well, plus a long list of places to visit when I go to the US! Keep in touch.
Melissa SilversteinUnited States
We had a great day with Mark. He was very knowledgeable, funny, personable and shared stories and sights that were not all mainstream. He made history sound like it was made for motion pictures . He told us about all the monarchs and period of time without one. Pointed outFascinating sights and hidden treasures !We had a one day excursion in and out of his taxi seeing all the sights we asked to see. Now when we come back we have a good sense of the difference between Westminster and London.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Melissa, that is a lovely review. I had a great day with you all. Hope you are enjoying Barcelona!
Mady BlackburnUnited States
A 7 Star rating out of 5 would not even come close. Mark was amazing. We laughed and joked and had fun all day! His knowledge of London, its history, it's hidden gems, it's best kept secrets, is endless. He drives around London with the ease of a bird gliding through the city. He accommodated us whenever needed... I could go on forever. When he greeted us, we felt like we already knew him. When we said goodbye, we said we would keep in touch. Oh, and did I mention how much fun we had?
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was fun wasn’t it! Thank you for such wonderful words Mady. I thoroughly enjoyed taking you around London. You were all great company!
Philip FleischmannUnited States

Bruce SpitzengelUnited States
Mark was an excellent choice for our tour of Stonehenge and Bath with his exceptional knowledge and attention making this a wonderful day for my wife and two granddaughters. We encourage others to take advantage of his expertise and gracious attention to our wishes when planning this tour or any other tours when he is available. Thank you Mark for the unforgettable tour. Bruce and Family
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bruce, thank you so much for those kind words. It was a pleasure being in your company yesterday and as I said to you, the questions asked by your granddaughters made my day! Thank you again.

Jane RidleyUnited States
Mark was excellent. Very knowledgeable, fun and kind. Great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane. It was a pleasure being with you for the day. I thoroughly enjoyed your company.
Clark MorganUnited States
Brilliant! Mark was fantastic! We highly recommend the full day tour. He checked all the boxes we expected in a tour guide and more! His trip seamlessly included wide ranging info about royals, Harry Potter, modern/ancient politics, WW2 and more. It kept us and our 3 kids interested and engaged the whole time. Kid #1: He was funny, engaging, and pulled off some sick turns! Kid#2: He was funny and knew a lot. Kid #3: I liked him a lot! Seriously. Book this guy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Clark, thank you for your comments. They are lovely. You have a wonderful family. Have a great time enjoying the rest of your holiday. Kindest Regards Mark.
Jeffrey JacobsonUnited States
Mark is a amazing guide. We had a wonderful time. He has a great knowledge of WW2 sites and was just what I was looking for in a guide. Great job!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jeff, thank you so much for the comments. It was great to meet you all and take you round the WW2 locations.
Jeffrey JacobsonUnited States
Mark was great. He was able to supplement the info I hand done on WW2 sites. We had a awesome time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Likewise Jeff. You were lovely to be with and made my task that much more pleasurable. Thank you.
Martin MayersonUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Martin. That’s very kind of you.
Phyllis BrickmanUnited States
We took the EuroStar Train from Paris to London and Mark met us at the St Pancras Train Station with his London Taxi. We were then off to a day filled with London history. He graciously worked in special requests to see Lloyds of London, have fish and chips for lunch and a quick stop at Harrods. We wished for more time in London and especially more time with Mark. He truly is a fact filled London representative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Phyllis, thank you so much for your review. I absolutely loved taking the four of you around London. I enjoyed the day as much as you. You were all lovely company. Wishing you all the very best Mark
Melissa StratmanUnited States
We had an ah-MA-zing tour with Mark. My teenage daughter & I visited London and surrounding area on this holiday and our day tour with Mark was absolutely our highlight! Mark was a clear communicator and a great listener. I hate tours where guides just talk at me--this was so personal. We learned so much from him as he talked and drove and he really listened to us and then pointed out esoteric things (like cemeteries) that he had learned from us that were of interest to us. He made it amazing!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Melissa for such a lovely review. I thoroughly enjoyed the day with you and your daughter. It works both ways too, you were a joy to travel and tour with. The cemeteries were a really interesting change which I love as it stretches me in my knowledge and understanding of England. I am now doing some research into graveyards as a result of your interest. Brilliant.
