if i could give a 10 star rating for Vivien i would. She is amazing. I have been using Toursbylocals for a few years now and she is by far the BEST tour guide i have ever had. We were hit with some pretty nasty weather in London but she was able to make an 8 hour tour extremely enjoyable and incredible. She really knows where to go and what to see. Her extensive knowledge of the History of not just London but all of European History is incredible and very helpful as you tour the Tower of London and others
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Eric, Wow! Thank you so much for your amazing review which I can assure you is greatly appreciated. Delighted to hear that you and Rachael enjoyed your tour so much despite the bitterly cold weather. You both deserve medals for being so cheerful and receptive despite being frozen for most of the day! Viv x

She's certainly a five star. She came on time and ready to go. She was very knowledgeable of the history of this great city and country. Besides all that she was fun, with a great sense of humor. My wife and I have traveled all over the world and never had a better guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mike and Chris - It was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with you and I'm delighted to hear that you enjoyed your tour so much. Your kind comments have really made my day! Warmest wishes to you both, Viv x

Vivien was an exemplary tour guide. She was so passionate and enthusiastic. It was contagious. She was able to engage the interest of all three of our young adult children, which was no small task. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend her services
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words Donna and delighted to hear that you all enjoyed the tour. For my part, it was such a pleasure to show you London and to spend time (which flew by) with you all. Wishing you a wonderful stay here in the UK and Ireland. Viv x

Our party of 7 (5 adults, 2 kids) were in London for the first time and wanted to see as much as possible. Vivien was a fantastic person to show us around! She is incredibly knowledgeable about the city and it's attractions. She is very fun and personable, like an old friend! We had 3 generations travelling and she knew just the right combo to make it enjoyable for all. Very highly recommend booking with her! Thank you, Vivien!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carrie, So glad to hear that you all enjoyed the tour and I must say that for my part it was a great pleasure to spend a day in London with you! Hope to see you back again one day. Viv x

I give Vivien 10 stars for the most excellent two-day tour for my 17-year old daughter. We were very fortunate with Vivien. It is impossible do describe in a few words. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gosh - thank you so much Alexandre. Showing Susanna the sights in London was a joy for me, but no matter what you know about your subject, it's all about making your guest happy and creating a great experience, so I'm more than thrilled to hear that she enjoyed herself so much. Hope we meet again one day. Viv x
