I will begin by saying that my family takes many walking and biking tours when we travel so our expectations can be pretty high. Edward was on time, very polite and very well informed. We took a 6 hour tour. While we covered much of the city by subway, bus and on foot, we only actually went in to the Tower of London. We stopped for lunch. The pace was slower than we would normally like and we felt Edward was not the best fit for our family. Someone more gregarious may have been better.

Edward was very accommodating and pleasant even though our tour date happened to fall on an unseasonably cold, snowy Sunday! He knew a lot of facts about everything we visited, and it was very nice to skip through the crowds at our own pace. He led us through the underground transportation, and even took extra time to see that we found a good restaurant at the end of the tour. He gave us great advice on how to arrange our self-guided tours the next day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much allison Hope to eres you ask again one day
Vik RaghavanUnited States
Wow is all I can say about Edward as a person and a tour guide. You get to be the fabric of London on his tour. We had a sick baby and had to reschedule the tour a couple of times. Edward was eagerly willing to work with us. He kept everyone engaged through the course of six hours while seeing some amazing sights around London.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much vik. I hope the baby is fine now and that you had a good trip back. Say hello to everyone

Caren G.United States
Edward was a wonderful guide for my recent trip to London with my daughter. It was a first visit for both of us and we only had a few days. Edward was very informative and gave us a great overview of the city, incorporating a few major highlights in the day we spent together. He was charming and related equally well to me and my 17-year old daughter. He was also helpful in helping us map out a realistic plan for our remaining days. We will definitely reach out to him for future visits!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the nice review care. Hope you had a nice lunch at harrods

Harold AlexanderUnited States
Edward was fabulous! We toured unusual sites such as the Veteran's retirement home as well as more popular sites in the City, the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels . He is extremely knowledgeable and personable. There were 8 family members in our group. He related so well to each of us and kept us thoroughly engaged. Our 10 year old granddaughter and our 12 year old grandson related to him so well, They were sad when the day ended! He was, by far, the best city guide we have ever had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind review Harold. Say hello to everyone for me
Jeff C.United States
This is our second day with Edward. He continued to impress and surprise us on special neighborhoods in London. His professionalism truly shined in the British Museum. With his introduction, we appreciate and learn a great deal from ancient Egyptian to Greek history in under 2 hours. Unfortunately, we ran our of time due to my departure time to Paris. My family really hoped to spend more time with Edward. We hugged and said goodbye at the station. We hope to see him again in the future!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind review Jeff. It was a pleasure to be with your family. Have a lovely time in Paris
Jeff C.United States
Edward is a true professional and gentleman. We enjoyed his company. His knowledge of the city of London and U.K. History are impressive. His storytelling skills kept us engaged throughout the trip .. there is never a boring moment. He is detailed, friendly, and accommodating .. you cannot ask for a better guide and friend!
Wayne YoshigaiUnited States
Edward is a personable and knowledgeable guide who customized our tour of Kensington to match our interests. He walked us through neighborhoods that we would not have found on our own, and we experienced things that we could not have experienced without him. For example, he walked us through the Royal Hospital Chelsea where we met one of the few female Chelsea Pensioners! Our tour included highlights of the Victoria and Albert Museum in addition to Kensington Palace.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Wayne. Hope to see you again in London
Linda S.United States
For six hours Edward squired us around London. We saw Parliament, Big Ben, and the Abraham Lincoln statute. Next we took the Tube to St. John's Gate and walked to Abbey Road, where we re-enacted the album cover and visited Abbey Studio's gift shop. After coffee, it was onto the British Library, where we browsed the ancient manuscripts, including the Magna Carta and a copy of Beowulf from 1000AD. Later we saw Station 9 & 3/4s (for Harry Potter fans), the Guildhall, Roman ruins, and more. Great day!
Steve GaudreauUnited States
Edward was terrific! Customized our tour based on our objectives that day. Very flexible and very knowledgeable about English history. Could answer all of our questions. Would ask for him again,for sure. Thank you!

Lorie DunnUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our day in London with Edward. He was patient and entertaining with the children (ages 9 & 12) and very knowledgeable about the city and all it's history. Highly recommend:)
Edward was great at reading everyone's mood and interests (2 adults, 2 teens and a 7 year old) and was able to tailor our London guided walk (tour) to everyone's liking. He not only dominates the required topics but he also knows how to make it fun and interesting for such a diverse group. Thank you Edward for a great tour of London.
Dorinda WongUnited States
Edward was perfect. Our email exchange prior to our tour helped guide our itinerary. We saw all the items on my list and more. We enjoyed his fluid delivery of English history as we walked or traveled to each historic site and as we walked through the site. He has extensive knowledge and we appreciated the back story to historical events.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Dorinda. I also discovered some new places on our walk together. Have a lovely stay in London
