Marina took us to an "authentic" tour of Windsor, Stonehenge, and Bath. She also made sure that we were able to see the main attractions and that we spent little time on the "minor" attractions.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We were exceptionally lucky capturing a very rare sunset at Stonehenge with a clear sky! And the morning sun at Windsor was quite a delight, indeed. I am glad we all enjoyed our tour! Many happy returns, Mark and Shalom - hope to see you next year. x x

Marina toured us through London for a day taking us to some sites we had requested, and others that she chose for us. We (my husband and I) were travelling with two of our grandsons, aged 12 and 9. The tour was interesting, very informative, and fun for all ages. Marina went above and beyond to help us with any questions we had and to make us feel welcome in London. Many, many thanks. We certainly recommend Marina as a tour guide and will hope to book a tour with her again next time we come to London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David, The pleasure was mine, indeed! I have also learnt more about the incredible participation of the American pilots during WW2. We are forever in debt to those who were defending our lives and peace. Best wishes to you all. Marina

Marina gave us a wonderful tour! We saw and learned many things we would never have seen on our own. Her insight into the history was priceless. A big bonus was her teaching us how to navigate the underground, which was a big help for the rest of our trip. I would highly recommend her.

We absolutely LOVED every minute with Marina and were extremely impressed with all of her knowledge of London. She is like a walking Wikipedia :-). We loved how she engaged our teens with questions reviewing the info she gave us (we got to experience "real" London today; the protesting was actually quite "intriguing"). Spending our first day with her (of 6) was the perfect way to start off our visit to London. Now we know exactly how we wish to plan the rest of our time here. Thank you Marina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sarah, your lovely review makes me blush - thank you for your kind words. Your family are so knowledgeable and enthusiastic - I am happy that we all had a lot of fun! Enjoy England and don't forget - we have Scotland for your future exploration! )))

Marina is an excellent guide providing a depth of knowledge that goes beyond the "tour book", DVD and website information. She is professional on all levels, gracious in accommodating special requests and has a solid grasp of time allocation. We could not have done the tour on our own: Marina created memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks so very much. Ron & Denise

Tom and I had a day tour of London which started with a walk from our hotel to the London train for subway which took us to the Westminster area for a short walk to Westminster Abbey. As we walked through the Abby Marina explained the old history of Queens and Kings, we walked among the history filled burial stones and discussed the artist of the Abby and additions to the structure itself. We enjoyed Buckingham Place, ST. James Place and park, a hat shop, it was a wonderful day. Thank you Marina

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom and Anne, I am very glad for you having had a lovely day filled with historical treasures and beauty for the eye and soul. Hope you would love to come back - there is so much to experience in Britain!

Marina gave our group an outstanding tour of London in a day. Since London is so crowded in the city area, we were able to move around easily by walking and taking the underground. She knew an incredible about Westminster Abbey and the surrounding area of London. She was helpful, cheerful, prompt, and interesting. I recommend Marina highly for tours of London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, Thank you for your review. It was very nice to meet your group and share with you all some of the best places in our magnificent city. I hope you have had a great time on your travels. Looking forward to your return to England - there is so much to see!

Couldn't ask for a better guide. Very flexible and accommodating. Want something different, she will take you there. Want to go where everyone else goes, then that's what you will get. We saw some special places we would never have found without Marina. Also, places to eat in out of the way places and special villages we outstanding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Day 8: Today we left the City of Bath (an epitome of grace and elegance) and visited another beautiful city. Afterwards went to Avebury - a lesser promoted circle of prehistoric stones. I am very happy for you both to be satisfied and to feel that you have had an extraordinary trip. The pleasure was mine!

Marina is a first rate guide. Excellent communicator and very descriptive in her narratives. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the small villages and towns and places which most tours don't go. We asked for that and she delivere.d

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Day 7: Yes, Arthur - England has such a great number of beautiful places for a discerning explorer! It never stops to surprise and delight you. Sadly, most of them are not listed in the guidebooks. So, my goal is to reveal as much as possible to my clients for their fun and amusement.

Marina was an excellent tour guide for our family of four (which includes two teenage boys!) She was full of interesting information and was able to keep our boys engaged. We saw so much of London in one day! She answered all of our questions and was fun to be with. I would highly recommend Marina!

Marina was AMAZING! My son was only going to be in London for one day, although it's not possible to see London in one day Marina managed to fit what would be a four day tour of London into eight educational fun filled hours! She is a wealth of information and an absolute pleasure to spend the day with! This mama's heart is overflowing with gratitude for Marina's personal touches to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne, Thank you for your smashing review! There is nothing better rewarding to me than a happy client. And Frankie was such a wonderful company, too.

She adjusted our plans during the day to maximize our time. She and our driver were willing to extend our day to 12 hours and we had a lovely late afternoon in Bath. Thank you Marina!
