Marcus is incredible - highly recommend. We spent the day walking all over the town. He customized the tour to exactly what we wanted to see, and included things that we didn't even know we wanted to see but were right up our alley. We walked over 10 miles that day and enjoyed every step. His knowledge is exceptional and he had a way of making us both at ease and adding to the awe and specialness of each location. Thank you so much Marcus!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was great to meet you both.

5 stars for Marcus. He was very knowledgeable about the sites - Westminster, St.Paul's, and the Tower of London. We had a group of 4 and he engaged everyone in our group, especially my 18 year old son. Thank you Marcus for showing and educating us on the highlights of London. Jennifer

Highlight of our trip! My family and I were in London for 4 days and we wisely chose Marcus because of his knowledge of history, his reviews and his experience with children. From the start we were not disappointed. He was on time and immediately established a rapport with my entire family (ages - 43,41,75,12,9). Marcus is a rare blend of knowledgeable and personality. We chose to do a half day first timer London tour and Marcus has a timed plan which he executed to perfection. In short he was awesome!

This was a great way to spend our first day in London- both getting an overview of the layout of the city and learning some history - as well as information on current events. This really grounded us for the rest of our week here! The time saved getting into Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's was priceless, and being guided right to the areas we most needed to see was so helpful. Marcus had a wonderful personality and a great car. He worked hard to see that everything on our list was seen. Great day!

We had a half day London for First Timers tour today with Marcus H and had a wonderful time. He is very knowledgeable about the history that happened in London and the landmarks we visited. It was a pleasure to have him lead our tour. He made sure we saw what we wanted to, has an excellent vehicle, is a good driver and was very prompt. I would highly recommend a tour with him.

Fantastic day ... Mercedes van was spotless & comfortable. We felt very relaxed with Marcus & he was an excellent driver. He provided enough historical information and we all felt comfortable in his company. The flexibility of having a personal driver/guide was great.

Marcus was a wonderful guide. He was very enthusiastic and a wealth of information. Any question that he could not answer immediately he found the answers by the end of the day. In spite of the rain it was a wonderful full day!

We had such a short time to see London but Marcus was amazing! Filled our evening and following day with so many sites and he was very knowledgeable. He even showed us how to use the Tube so we could explore later on our own. Highly recommend Marcus as a top notch guide. Friendly, funny and loves his London and it shows!

Tour: #606009, Stonehenge, day trip from London, London, England, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: May 17/19

My husband and I with two young relatives booked a private tour with Marcus H. to see Stonehenge outside Salisbury England. From the moment he picked us up precisely on time in his immaculate Mercedes van to dropping us off at our front door, Marcus was the consummate professional. Stonehenge is difficult to get to, not particularly interactive and on the day we went in late May, cold. Marcus brought it to life for the young men 14 and 18 who had never thought about prehistory much. His obvious deep love.

He collected us at the Heathrow and while he was driving he explained the sightseeing spots to us. We only got to aligned from the car to look at Buckingham Palace and lunch near the London Tower. My youngest got to tour the Arsenal stadium, a birthday gift to him.

Marcus was perfect. He was very knowledgeable in all areas and kept us smiling and laughing for 7 hours. We had emailed with him before our trip and planned our day using his suggestions. He adjusted the tour to fit in all of the extra places that we threw at him. At lunch, he had a table waiting for us in a great local pub so we did not lose any time waiting. Even though we only had a few hours in London, we saw and learned about so many things. We will definitely come back for another visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Do come back!

Marcus took our family on a wonderful day trip to Oxford, Blenheim and the Cotswolds. We hit the highlights in Oxford so we could have more time in Blenheim which we loved . It was a gorgeous day. Marcus drove us into the Cotswolds into towns off the beaten path. It was a real treat to be in the picturesque setting and to get a sense of the English countryside. Marcus was engaging, friendly and very knowledgable. I would highly recommend this tour with Marcus.

Marcus was an amazing guide. He explained so much about the castles and it was nice having a personal driver. We learned so much and I'm sure the experience would have been half as enriching on our own. Our kids loved him as a guide too. He's very courteous, funny and knowledgeable.

Marcus was an amazing guide. Very friendly and professional. He exceeded our expectations and managed to squeeze in a lot in one day. We loved seeing all the sights and history about London. We have 3 teenagers and the kids loved him. We booked a second tour with him for Windsor castle/Hampton Court, which was also amazing. His car was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our experience. I would not hesitate to book with Marcus!

My family and I had a great day with Marcus! We walked and saw a lot of London in our short time together. Marcus was very knowledgeable and kept my kids (aged 13 and 15) interested in the great history that London has to offer. Thank you Marcus for a great day and for the extra tips you gave us for the few days after our tour!

Marcus is extremely knowledgeable, answered all our questions and of course shared quite a bit of insight that one just doesn't get on one's own or by using a recorded guide. He ensured that we got to see all the sights on our list (first-timers to London). Marcus was very flexible as weather developed, balancing the sights with some moments to warm up: (hot chocolate at Methodist Hall, fish & chips in the Tower of London, and a pint in the Shard to wrap up the day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I did enjoy the day! Thank you!
