My wife, mother and I all had a terrific day with David! He was a perfect guide and host. We learned and laughed a lot on our tour of Oxford and the Cotswold. The Cotswold area is a must see, and we highly recommend taking this tour with David. We plan on hiring his services on our next visit to the London area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Drew, Sorry for the delay in replying. It was a pleasure to drive you all and I am glad you enjoyed the day with me. I certainly enjoyed your company. Kind regards, David

David was a great tour guide. He showed up early and we embarked on our tour. As we were leaving London David shared very interesting history about buildings, the history of the monarchy, and British history in general. This continued throughout the drive to Stonehenge. At Stonehenge he was a wealth of information. We had a lovely lunch in Bath and David's excellent knowledge continued at the Baths. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day and learned so much from David.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Terri, Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the day tour. It was a pleasure to drive you and share some of our history with you. Kind regards, David

Tour: #412055, Stratford upon Avon and Blenheim Palace, London, England, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: Aug 10/19

We were absolutely thrilled with David. One in our party had mobility issues and David was exceptional at dropping us off and picking up us at the entrance to each venue. His knowledge of London and the Cotswolds was outstanding. He added much to the commentary provided by the "official" guides inside each stop at Stratford-on-Avon. Since he was so well versed with the countryside, David was able to take "back roads" to avoid traffic. Book with David for any London tour if you get the chance.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David, Sorry for the delay in responding to your kind review. It was a pleasure driving and meeting you all. Kind regards, David

David's friendliness and knowledge of the countryside along with his expert driving encouraged a thoroughly remarkable experience. We would definitely book David for future tours should we visit London again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael, Thank you for your kind words. I always enjoy showing visitors the Cotswolds. As you now know it is a great way to spend a day in the English countryside. I am glad you also enjoyed the short visit to Oxford. David

Date: Jun 10/19

David is a friendly and knowledgeable man, who took us to several places on an enjoyable day. Our goal was to get from Heathrow to the Cotswolds, where a walking program began. David took us to Oxford, Blenheim Palace, and Stratford-upon-Avon before leaving us at our hotel. He took our general guidance and created an interesting tour, one which we would highly recommend. David is a cautious driver, with a comfortable car, and although it was an expensive program, we felt that we had good value.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John, Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure driving you both for the day. I hope the weather was not too bad for the rest of your trip and I hope you enjoyed your walks. Kind regards, David

Tour: Bath and Stonehenge, London, England, United Kingdom

We had a delightful 10 hour excursion with David from London to Stonehenge and Bath. We got the benefit of David's superb driving skills (his previous life was that of a London cabbie) but, far more importantly, those of the deep subject matter expertise and infectious enthusiasm of the true autodidact that David so manifestly has made himself. If we have the opportunity to have a guided tour of Wales and/or Scotland, we will, most certainly ask Tours by Locals for David's memorably excellent service.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Andrew, Thank you for your kind review. I really did enjoy driving both of you to Bath and Stonehenge for the day and I am glad you enjoyed the tour. It really was a pleasure to drive you both and exchange some great stories. I look for to possibly meeting you both again on another trip to the UK. Kind regards, David

I cannot say enough good things about David. He is the perfect guide. My family thoroughly enjoyed our time with him at Stonehenge and in Bath. He was punctual picking us up and patient with all of my inquiries in the weeks preceding the tour. He was very knowledgeable about what we were seeing and even did some extra research on Jane Austen places in Bath for my daughter. We immediately felt like we were with a good friend. When we return to England, we are definitely booking him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karen, Thank you for your review and the 5 stars. It was a pleasure to drive you and your family to Bath and Stonehenge and I am glad you and your daughter enjoyed the Jane Austen extras. I look forward to meeting you again if you return to the UK. Kind regards, David

David was fantastic and I recommend him not only for this trip, but any around London. He was very knowledgeable and able to explain everything, but did so in a conversational manner where we felt like we spent the day with a friend who just happened to know everything about where we were going. We also talked about all things Royal and London in general; again it felt like spending the day with a friend. With TBL, your guide makes all the difference. I HIGHLY recommend David for your time in London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure driving you both and showing you just a small part of the UK.
