Dawn was a great guide and provided a fantastic experience for our family (2 adults and 2 kids 9 &12 years old). She was incredibly knowledgeable about the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and the Churchill war rooms. Thoroughly recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a great guide.

Our day spent touring London with Dawn was a delight. Dawn was knowledgeable, personable and true professional. Dawn related well to all members of our multigenerational party (teenagers, parents, grandparent) and really made the history of London come to life. I also appreciated how organized and responsive she was in the planning phases and how easy and efficient she made our day moving through the city's many attractions. Thank you, Dawn.

Dawn was such a great tour guide and I would absolutely request her again if we went back to London. She was knowledgeable, personable and fun. She was also flexible to our plans. The whole experience with Tours by Locals was fantastic.

The tour was very well organized and fulfilled all expectations. The tour guide was excellent, tailored the tour to my requests and seemed most knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour. Very personable and provided a most enjoyable day. This tour and tour guide are highly recommended for anyone trying to capture the true London experience!!!

On a sunny, cold day, we saw/experienced many new-for-us London sights - the Temple chapel, Thames River Bus, Emirates cable car, Greenwich, Dockside, and the Olympic Park. We visited a couple of museums along the way. We saw shrapnel damage from WWII. We had a wonderful day walking (including under the Thames)and experiencing many forms of public transport. Dawn told us background and stories along the way. She is a great guide, quickly picking up on our interests and showing us many hidden gems.

Dawn was a brilliant guide. She has a talent for breathing life into history and had my 12 year old daughter as enthralled by Westminster abbey (a much dreaded excursion) as she was by the Crown Jewels. She has a trove of information that keeps history interesting and makes the places you visit more memorable (the significance of the 2 on the clock at Horse Guards Parade, the composition of the lions in Trafalger Square etc). HIGHLY recommend!!

I arranged a private tour with Dawn, making a specific request to see sites in London related to the Plantagenet dynasty. We discussed the planning of the tour through a series of emails. I let her know that my husband and adult daughter would be accompanying me and knew little about medieval England. She took us on an amazing 7 hour walking tour of London, including a 2 hour tour of Westminster Abbey and ending at the Tower of London. All of us were fascinated with her tour. Highly recommend!

Tours By Locals and Dawn B. are great! I highly recommend the London customized tours. I was able to see so much more than I ever could have on my own. Thank you!!! I hope to be able to tour with you again.

Booking this tour with Dawn B. was a great decision! She is amazing - she is a very knowledgeable guide and she was genuinely interested in working with me to create two perfect days. I could never have seen as many wonderful sights in two days on my own. She also picked up on my interests and worked in some very special surprises. I highly recommend both Tours By Locals and Dawn.

what a wonderful day we spent with dawn. we had to make a last minute change to the time but she was very pleasant about it. upon meeting her we were both very comfortable because of her pleasant personality. we wanted to focus on areas of london other than the main attractions. she brought to areas that most tourists never visit. she did however take us to the abbey and the london tower. her knowledge about these places were very impressive. we learned so much from her. i would highly recommend dawn
