This was the best decision we made on this trip! Nicholas was so informative and interesting! He catered to the whole family! He helped us with navigating the transport system, picked us up and ensured our safe return at the end! He went above and beyond to give us the BEST London experience! Seeing the royals at the Commonwealth celebration was an added bonus! This added time to our tour but Nicholas still completed everything on the agenda! We would definitely recommend and do again! Thanks Nicholas! 5*

Nick is friendly and easy going with lots of fun facts and knowledge. Even with half of my party suffering jetlag, Nick was still able to engage us throughout the full day tour. My family enjoyed the day very much on our first visit to London.

Utterly charming and engaging, Nick introduced to so much more of London in a day than we would have managed on our own in a week. We were able to move quickly from one spot to another by his judicious use of taxis, the subway and short cuts through narrow streets that only a Londoner would know. Because of my chronic knee problems, he was careful to maintain a pace that I could handle. Should we ever return to London, we would certainly utilize his services once again!!!

Nicholas was amazing! His knowledge of the city of London and it's history was thorough, entertaining, and informative. We had limited time to see the sites. There would have been no way to cover a fraction of what we saw on our own. He is an extremely courteous, friendly, and conscientious guide. After three countries and many tours Nicholas was by far the best. Book him without hesitation!

Nicholas is an amazing guide. We signed up for the London tour with Roman highlights. From the outset Nicholas established an easy-going, friendly atmosphere and surveyed the group to confirm the sites of greatest interest. We always had the impression that we could adjust the course of the tour based on what struck our fancy but in general we kept to the script. The speed of the walking tour was spot on. We covered a lot of territory in the 3+ hours, but never felt tired or overwhelmed. The most impress

Date: Jan 19/20

Nicholas did a great job customizing our tour to appeal to each of us, even though we were very diverse in terms of age, areas of interest and familiarity with London (from a first-time visitor to at least 6 prior visits). He addressed a wide range of topics - some requested by us and some suggested by him, including history, architecture, the royal family and even bird life in St James Park - with an astonishing depth of knowledge and dash of welcome humor. Everyone loved it. Highly recommend.

Absolutely brilliant tour of London. My customers were extremely pleased with everything. We had tons of fun and we learned a lot about the old and new London. He took very good care of us and we will certainly be back for more. I could not recommend Nicholas more.

This tour was so much fun. Nick certainly knows his music history' and taught us so much. He took us through the past walking the streets where rock & roll legends walked, shopped and recorded. It was a memorable day for our family ages 10-77.

I use ToursByLocals whenever possible in my travels. As usual I was not disappointed. Nicholas was AMAZING! He went above and beyond to ensure my mother and I saw London through different eyes. I had visited London on two previous occasions, but feel as though this was my first time. Touring London with Nicholas was like wandering the city with an old friend. We were like kids.. Nicholas tell us about this! Don't tour London without Nicholas by your side! He is the pride of London in my eyes! Wonderful

Nicholas was great! He tailored the tour perfect to the needs of my kids of 10 and 15 years. They enjoyed his way of explaining it. He told us so much little details and we got a good overview of Churchill and of the center of London. We can highly recommend him.

Nicolas was a wonderful tour guide. He knew so much about the city, from ancient history to newer things like all the Harry Potter filming spots. He was able to adjust plans based on my kids needs and kept us going strong all day. We saw so much and learned a great deal about London! Thanks Nicolas!!

Nicholas was outstanding in his knowledge of all things London and a pleasure to spend a full day with. He made the day fun sharing his city with us. We were concerned that 8 hours may be too long on a tour, but we would have enjoyed being with him for another 8 hours !!! Jeanne and Family

Nicholas led a wonderful tour, enjoyed by all ages in our group, preteen to adult. Very comfortable, well-paced, informative, and highly entertaining. I have been coming to London for years, though the city was new for others in our group. We all enjoyed equally. I would not have changed anything. A wonderful experience and value, offering much more than we could have seen and learned independently!

We had an amazing day exploring London with Nicholas. His knowledge of London's history is very extensive. We saw all of the major sites and Nicholas knew the perfect spot to get the best view and photo. Also during our tour we stopped and learned about local music facts. We highly recommend Nicholas for your tour of London. Thank you!

Nicholas was flexible and a storehouse of knowledge about the City of London. We had a wonderful time wandering with him from St. Paul's to the Tate Modern to Southwark Cathedral to crossing London Bridge to the Guildhall. An excellent tour, we would love to take another tour with him.

Nicholas was professional, courteous, and wonderful company. I had been to London before so he designed Tour just for me to visit places and do things I'd never done. I interviewed about six guides, chose Nicholas, & he did not disappoint! Monica

Had a fantastic day with Nicholas as he was incredibly knowledgeable about London's history and visitor sites. The day was focused on what we asked for and even more than then what we had expected. He was very personable, charismatic and energetic. We will book him for an upcoming trip our own son and wife are taking as a special gift.

My family and I really enjoyed this tour by Nicholas. His communication leading up to the tour was excellent, he met us on time at Leicester Square to start out, and the tour was thoughtful and well-planned. Nicholas is an amiable and engaging guide. Our minds were pretty blown by how many historic rock sites he was able to fit into the tour. Fans of The Rolling Stones, Hendrix, Bowie, Queen, the Beatles and other classic bands will be thrilled by the sites and stories Nicholas incorporates.

Great tour. We went to all the places we wanted to see. Nicholas was excellent at navigating the tour so we ended up at the right places at just the right time, with great history and stories to tell in between. He was very patient throughout, but kept us moving so we ended with time for personal afternoon activities. I would recommend him again.
