Date: Mar 3/19

Had a fabulous day with Nicholas and driver David! They worked well together and I felt like we were a family with many laughs and fun conversations on our adventure in addition to the sights/history. When weather was too inclement for us, they were exceptional to work around that without hesitation. I was not ready to go "home." Hopefully, we are able to return... All the best to my two "adopted sons" of London. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

We could not recommend Nicholas highly enough! His knowledge of facts, dates, and London "secrets" is endless and the way he relates those with enthusiasm and genuine love for the great city, carry you away. We so appreciated how he incorporated something for everyone's interests and was flexible and thoughtful. Whether you are a history or architecture lover, a rock and pop star follower, or just looking to learn about London, Nicholas will have the perfect itinerary and narrative for you. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Myrto thank you so much for your kind comments. It was a pleasure taking you around London. It was a pleasure and the time flew by. Have a great summer :)

Date: Jan 4/19

Nicholas was very friendly and met us promptly at our hotel. He seemed very knowledgeable about the things I wanted my kids to learn. He was particularly helpful in guiding us to several up close viewings of the Changing of the Guards and in taking us through various neighborhoods, showing us things we wouldn't have found on our own. He also followed up via email with several helpful suggestions for the rest of our time in London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello and thank you for your review. I would like to apologise that the tour was not a 5 star experience and I take responsibility for this. I have had a hard month with family problems and I took my eye off the ball. I will be taking the next month off to recharge my batteries. You were a lovely family to host in my city and I wish you all the best for 2019. Nicholas

Date: Dec 30/18

Nicholas was a delight! I was looking for something different to do with the family and this Rock and Roll Tour was it. We walked all over and through interesting places. We stopped along the way and got all sorts of fun and interesting local music facts. Nicholas was such a wealth of knowledge we ended up asking him any and all questions we had about London. If I am ever back in London I would want Nicholas to be our personal guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jennifer, thank you so much for coming on my tour of London. I had a great time showing you all around. I hope you have an enjoyable New Year and are looking forward to spring :) It was nice to meet you all. With best wishes Nicholas

My kids and I (13 & 11) did a tour in London with Nicholas that was Fun, Educational, Interesting and nothing less than AWESOME!!! In a matter of 8 hours we walked the city seeing everything we could possibly want to see, and then some! Nicholas made the tour fun for the kids, including stops in the Queen's park to feed nuts to the birds and squirrels:) Even the main sites were made exciting for all of us as he told us historical facts and extra nuggets of info only a highly educated guide would know!

Tour: A private, customised tour of Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral., Kent, England, United Kingdom
Date: Sep 22/18

Our trip was a private guide to Leeds Castle in Kent. We had Nicholas who was absolutely fantastic! He and the best driver in London picked us up at our Hotel and even let us take a stop along the way to visit a church that had a lot of history to my family. He is freakishly knowledgeable of all things historical, and was able to dodge crowds and show us everything from swans in the river, to the hedge maze, and through the many corridors of the castle. It was like traveling through time! Don't hesitate!

Would not have been the same trip without our guide Nicholas. Our trip was Mom and 2 grown daughters from the US. We had 1 day in the city of London, and would never have seen near as much of the city without him. Nicholas made it easy and flawless. Like watching theater while you tour. Never have I retained so much history and enjoyed it so much. Nicholas knew how to dodge the crowds, use side streets and was almost magical in his timing to get us everywhere we wanted to be. Highly recommend!

Nicholas was friendly, accommodating and had a great sense of humour. His knowledge was extensive and covered all aspects of London including history and the music industry. He knew exactly when and where to be for the changing of the guards. We wanted to visit the Royal Mews and it was no problem to changed his tour to incorporate this. Nicholas was available with good advice before the tour and helped us obtain oyster cards and gave advice on their future use during the tour. Great guide.

Nicholas was so much fun!! I have been to London many times but learned so much from him. My college aged boys are musicians and they absolutely loved the tour. Nicholas was so knowledgeable about the history of rock and roll in London. We had a great time re-creating album covers, visiting Abbey Road and seeing so many famous spots. It was a fantastic tour and I highly recommend to anyone. One of the highlights of our stay!

Dispite the weather which was frightfull...Nicholas made our tour delightful! When we met, he again asked if we were interested in specific attractions which he made certain that we visited during our tour. His knowledge and special points of interest, that only a local would know, were appreciated. It was a very entertaining and educational day in London!

Nick was exceptional! We have used TB locals for 5+yrs and he is tops! Nick has a wealth of knowledge in history (medieval, monarchy, religious, architectural) as well as contemporary (rock & roll, local color, culture, & knowing the best pubs). We had one day to see London - he gave us all we asked for & more - taking us down hidden alleys, showing us diversity throughout, & doing it all with an amazingly witty sense of humor. I know this is his job, but for us, we felt we were hanging with a friend.

Absolutely best day in London!! Nicholas is an awesome guide, he is friendly, knowledgeable and tailors the tour to you. My husband and our 14 yr old son were first-timers in London and of course wanted to see so much. Nicholas showed us everything we wanted and so much more. We saw all the well known sites, along with many hidden gems. Nicholas even incorporated sites/facts about Churchill after hearing during our tour that our son was writing a report on him. Highly recommend Nicholas & ToursByLocals

Nicholas! fantastic guide.... Here's why. My 16yr old son and I wanted to do something a bit different... See the back alleys and the nooks and crannies. My son also has a keen interest for film and music. Nicholas gave us ALL of it. We had a "walk about" day that ended with a pint and he felt like family at the end of it. He is extremely engaging and knowledgeable. We showed us the bits of London that most tours wouldn't get to see. I highly recommend him!

We spent an entire day with Nick touring London, and it was wonderful. He is engaging, easy to talk to, knowledgeable about the history of the area. He can customize the tour for your interests, to make sure you see all the places that are important to you (we particularly enjoyed the rock n' roll sights in addition to all the main attractions). My husband and I really enjoyed our day, and will definitely use Nick again when we return to the London area. Book with Nick, you won't regret it! :)

I booked the 3 hr walking tour of London with Nicholas for myself and my family. Nicholas was waiting promptly at 3pm in our hotel lobby. The tour itself was excellent, but Nicholas' knowledge and personality really made it a memorable event for myself and my family. Nicholas hit all the expected sights and many areas we would not have thought to see. Of the 5 days we spent in London, my wife and son said the tour with Nicholas was the best sightseeing we did. I highly recommend Nicholas for touring.

We had an amazing tour with Nick. Not only did we get to see all the major sights, but we got to see the hidden parts of London that I'm sure, even some Londoners don't know about, and which we would never have seen on our own, or with any of the group tours. Nick was extremely knowledgeable and made the most of the time we had. He also gave us invaluable suggestions for the rest of our visit. We will be sure to contact Nick again on our next visit to London! Audrey, Joe and Alex Kalaf
