Our family thoroughly enjoyed Paul's tour of London today. As first timers, Paul made sure to point out all the major buildings and landmarks of interest, make some last minute diversions to places that were of direct interest to our family, and made sure we saw some "hidden gems" including some private clubs of the royals. He was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Julie Thank you so much for such a lovely review it was an absolute pleasure showing you and your family around town. Enjoy the rest of your vacation Paul

Tour: London Private Driving Tour - Half Day, London, England, United Kingdom
Date: Nov 24/19

At the suggestion of a friend we used Tours by Locals and loved it! Our guide Paul arrived 30 minutes early, let us know he was on site and patiently waited for us to get organized and shake the jet lag out. As a London Taxi driver, Paul knew his way around the city and potential traffic issues as well as terrific insider tidbits, history and current political and royal issues. Paul did an excellent job reading our interests as well as our children's, and energy levels. 5 Stars

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ellen, thank you so much for the lovely feedback, it was a real pleasure meeting you all and I hope that you are enjoying the rest of your time here. Looking forward to hopefully meeting up again in the future!

Tour: #548016, Full Day Private Dover Shore Excursion to the Countryside of Kent, England's very own Garden, Dover, England, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: Jul 29/19

Paul was terrific. He met our cruise ship right on time in an authentic London taxi with forward and backward facing seats. That was a treat. We had three people but may have been a little squished if we had five. Paul was extremely flexible in accommodating our interests and schedule. We even had some last minute requests that he was happy to meet. Paul did not talk a lot about the history of the area, but he gave us great insight into the people and culture. Would highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Julia thank you so much for such a lovely review so glad you enjoyed the day hopefully our paths cross again in the future

Paul was a great guide, and we enjoyed his tours of Canterbury and knowledge of the Cathedral; his knowledge of Leeds Castle, and seeing the White Cliffs of Dover. Paul's vehicle was a London taxi, which was a good vehicle for four adults to ride in to the various cities. He sent us a very nice video of our tour. We highly recommend Paul.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karol thank you for such a lovely review it was a pleasure showing you around Kent and its sights, so glad that you enjoyed it
