Six of us toured London with David for 6 hours. What a wealth of knowledge David gave us. Very professional and also friendly and personal. We had a bit of rain but that didn't stop David or us from a wonderful day of sightseeing. Also what a great driver in all that close traffic. Would highly recommend. Thanks again, David, jackie

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jackie. Thank you for taking the time to review the day that we spent touring together. It is greatly appreciated and I am so pleased that you have some wonderful memories of London. it really was my pleasure to drive you and your friends around.

5 stars +....David shared his vast knowledge of English history in and around Dover. He was the perfect gentleman, interesting and very accommodating. We needed to change the time of our tour the day before and he even showed up early. He adjusted the itinerary to our whims, longer and shorter times at venues. He even added several extra stops once he realized what our interests were to enhance our day. He and the tour were SPECTACULAR and we will always fondly remember our 8 hour tour with David.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Debra. I'm so glad that you and your friends enjoyed the time that we spent in Kent together. Changing itinerary's and timings around are easy. What's really special is that this tour will be fondly remembered.

David was absolutely fantastic, he met us at Heathrow and we drove to Dover for a tour and to board the cruise. He was a fantastic guide, very much in tune with our interests and requests. Our family of four including 2 teens thoroughly enjoyed the time and learned quite a bit about the main attractions and we have lots of photos since David was taking nice shots of us. David even hired a larger car since we had a lot of luggage. If you want an excellent tour, I highly recommend David! Lina

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lena. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a positive review about our time together. This is greatly appreciated and I'm so pleased that all your family enjoyed the day.

He also gave us great recommendations for later in our trip, and responded to my text about airport transport on our LAST day! Couldn't recommend him higher!

Dave and driver (Ray) did an excellent job introducing us to London and all the sites. Our family of six (four kids) thoroughly enjoyed the time and learned quite a bit about the main attractions and many items we would have never found on our own. We kept driving into and around places it looked like you were not even allowed to go and they knew all the routes, secrets and tips for navigating London. I would highly recommend for a first time visitor to get a feel for the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Robert, thank you for taking the time to review the afternoon that we spent together. I am so pleased that you and your young family enjoyed the tour and places that we visited. It really was a pleasure to show you our City.

WHAT A DAY! David was amazing ~ talk about an excellent tour guide. He knows the city inside and out and provided my family a fantastic day touring London. He contacted me prior to our scheduled tour to let me know that the London Bike race would be taking place during our tour day. He offered alternate routes & highlights and was able to take us on an all day excursion, that was off the beaten path, all without getting us stuck in the "bike traffic" ~ he didn't miss a beat. He was phenomenal!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jennifer. Thank you for taking the time to review the day that we spent touring together. It really was a pleasure to take you and your family around. It works both ways and I was extremely fortunate to be paired with you. Hopefully we will all meet up again in the future. Best wishes Dave.

Our tour was the perfect way to begin our vacation in London. David gave us a broad overview of the main sites and lots of info on other sites to see on our own. David is engaging and entertaining and full of both historic and local information. David even recommended and dropped us off at the oldest Fish and Chips restuarant - which was a perfect way to end our tour. We were a group of two moms traveling with our two 19 year old sons and we all equally enjoyed and all highly recommend this tour.

Dave was our tour guide/driver. His exceptional knowledge of London and his willingness to accommodate our requests is what made our "Journey" into London the most educational and pleasant experience we have ever had. My family and I cannot recommend Dave enough. After Dave learned of my daughters extreme interest in Harry Potter (halfway through the tour; I forgot to tell him about her obsession), he surprised us with sites used in scenes of the movies. Excellent job, Dave!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jack, thankyou for taking the time to review our tour together. I really appreciate your positive comments and found the places that we visited interesting. it really was my pleasure to show your family around.

Dave has an encyclopedic knowledge of London and we were very glad we spent the day with him. He is fun to be with. The tour in a car was a great overview and orientation, which is just what we wanted. You cannot see all of London in six hours, but we ended with a much better sense of its rich history. Thanks for the cold water and the ride in an air-conditioned car on a steamy hot day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Meridee, thank you for your kind review. It really was my pleasure to show some of the hotspots of London.

A bank holiday Monday could have put a damper on our tour. David was able to provide an alternative which was just as acceptable to our planned tour. David was on time, the car was clean, and he was a wealth of knowledge. So much so, my daughter was able to remember several facts my old mind did not retain. David was ever conscious of our comfort during this London jaunt. I highly recommend David for any of his tours. When I convince my wife to visit, I WILL book any of David's listed tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Greg, thank you for your kind review and for recommending my tours. Hopefully you can convince your wife to come to London. As it would be my pleasure to show you and your family, some more of our City and surrounding countryside.

Great way to see London. The guides associated with this service are extremely knowledgeable, and not just the average- who decapitated who during which marriage- sort of way. The odd, unknown, and unexplored also come alive, told in a humorous and engaging way. Having a London Cab as your conveyance is a great convenience and it makes it easy to park/stop in areas that otherwise you might not be able to. In short, if you are genuinely interested in getting to know London better, this is the way to go!

This was our 2nd of two days with David C.l during our recent trip to London. Dave was great on the 1st day and even better on the 2nd day. He took my wife, my 13 year old grandson and me to places in London that most tourists don't even know exist. My wife and I have used private guides all over the world (Russia, Italy, South Africa to name a few) and we both agree that Dave was the best of all of them. If you want a superlative experience with a private guide in London get Dave.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ed. Thank you so much for the glowing reviews that you posted on my behalf. I would just like to say that it was an absolute pleasure to tour with you. Along with your wife, yourself and Ryan your Teenage grandson, you made the days out so easy and enjoyable. I know that you had a Bucket list of must sees as well as film locations for Ryan. Also I'm really pleased that you enjoyed going off the tourist trail and seeing some of the more hidden London that we have to offer. Ryan's a lively young man, but

David Cannell is a real gem. He gave me, my wife and grandson a tour of London we shall never forget. He is incredibly knowledgeable, polite to a fault, quite charming and he even got our 13 year old grandson excited about British history. He catered to our every whim and still got us to every major site we wanted to see. His black cab is spotless and he maneuvered through the streets of London as if he had personally designed every street in the City. If you need a personal guide in London Dave is it

We loved everything about Dave and our tour and could not have been more pleased. The half--day tour was the perfect introduction to London (one of our party had never visited before). I have already recommended Dave to several friends who are planning trips to London. Dave is so knowledgeable and also good-natured and flexible, we just can't recommend him highly enough. For the next several days every time we wondered about anything we wished Dave was still with us to ask!

David is wonderfully knowledgeable concerning the history of London, as well as today's London. He happily indulged our interest in Regency London, plus as many of the major sites as possible, and he even made a reservation for us at one of the oldest restaurants in London. David brought us for a totally private tour of London's Guildhall, with not another tourist in sight. That's an incredible way to experience such an historic location. We were delighted with the tour.
