An absolutely brilliant day with Rob our guide and, Brian our driver. We only had the weekend to explore London and are beyond thrilled with the amazing storytelling and navigation today! Rob is incredibly knowledgeable and knows London like the back of his hand after 30 plus years of black cab service. We were treated not only to the "must-sees" but also some fabulous insider-only tidbits. Highly, HIGHLY recommend this tour. Thank you Rob and Brian for a great day! We'll certainly see you both again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your generous feedback Meg - it is much appreciated. We really enjoyed touring with you guys - the perfect tourists!

Great tour today with Rob. He knew London's history as well as the hidden secrets, innuendo & gems. Rob showed us where to get the best coffee & the best place for an authentic afternoon tour. He kept our 14 year old involved with Harry Potter & other movie location stops. Terrific way to see London if you have a short time or need to know what's best to see & do.

We asked Rob to give us a survey of historical London, and he did exactly that. We were able to see all of the major landmarks, and a good many of the smaller ones. Rob has a vast knowledge of the history of the city, and it's obvious that he enjoys sharing it with visitors like ourselves. We're very pleased that Rob was our guide. Many thanks.

They got us to all the major sites, provided us great information and history about London as well as taking us to a great lunch spot. All done with a smile while putting up with our crazy group of 17! Thank you for making this trip of a lifetime a success ❤️

Rob was delightful, informative and entertaining. A true professional with a vast amount of knowledge about London - he's a history major and knows all the nooks and crannies of the city. Booking him through Tours by Locals was efficient and easy. Rob cared that we saw everything we wanted to see plus shared plenty of extras. It's the small things that make a difference so when Rob made sure he directed us to the best public restrooms, we were sure we had chosen wisely. Thank You Rob.

Rob did a great job of showing us the best of London! He was able to tailor the tour to our family - Harry Potter fun facts and sites for the kids in addition to the more traditional city highlights. Rob did a nice job of finding several nice photo ops that might otherwise have been missed. He has great little parking places that allow you to get close to the sites you want to see while minimizing the walking (which was key for my wife who had a sprained ankle). I would highly recommend Rob!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was such a pleasure touring with you guys, and I sincerely thank you for such a positive review of my London tour - safe travel!

Absolutely the best tour I have ever had. We three ladies had a 24 hour layover in London. Rob picked us up at the airport with his beautiful, new black London cab and spent the day showing us London. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable, courteous and fun. I would go back to London just to spend the day with Rob as he has many, many versatile tours: history, pubs, any type of tour you want custom made to your interests. Rob, thank you for a wonderful day. We will be back!

Rob took my parents on a tour of London, where they lived before migrating to Australia, and, as well as showing them the highlights, did lots of research into their old haunts to personalize their tour. They were absolutely blown away by his knowledge, his friendliness and the trouble he took to turn this into the real highlight of their overseas trip. I couldn't recommend him highly enough! It was worth every penny. Thanks for the memories!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind comments Sue, feedback like this makes all the years of research and learning worthwhile. It's an enjoyable enough job touring with visitors, but taking your folks back to their roots was very special for me - this was REAL history, the perfect job for an historian and guide. Thank you for hiring me!

Rob demonstrated a fantastic knowledge of London. He managed to show us places we had never heard about. I particularly loved the "New Change". It was unfortunate that we got caught up in blocked roads because of the Brexit Demonstration, but Rob was able to get around most of it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I must admit that watching tennis on the big screen on the roof of 'One New Change' with a glass of Pimm's is not everyone's experience on my London tour - so maybe it should be!

We had a very specific requirement for walking tour of 'hidden' Greenwich. We were a group of people ages ranging from 9 to 70 and asked for a tour to suit all - we are also locals to the area, so a tall order to satisfy all, but very satisfied we all were! Rob didn't disappoint. He is personable and very knowledgeable about London and Greenwich. His tour was interesting and fun. Highly recommend and thanks for a great day, Rob

Rob is a wonderful guide! He knows so much of London's history as well as some great hidden gems you won't find in any guide books. He's interesting and doesn't just give you a bunch of dry facts, he brings the history to life. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. A truly enjoyable day. Thank you so much Rob, it was a pleasure to get to know London with you. I loved the balance of being in the cab as well as being able to get out and walk the streets of this fabulous city.
