Great Tour..only comment for the 4 hour ride, we had trouble hearing in the back seat of the chauffeured Van. A portable headset/speaker system would have helped or if she had joined us in the back seat so conversation would have been easier would have it made it a 5 star tour.

Dawn was excellent. She was very receptive to our requests and adapted our schedule to meet our limitations (in time and physical challenges) We loved her insights and descriptions of the various locations. She was very good conversing with our teenage granddaughters. They had a lot of questions and she had the answers. We had 4 private guides during our stays in London and Paris. We all agreed that Dawn was the best! I would highly recommend her to everyone.

Dawn was wonderful. My husband is a slow walker and she was able to accommodate his speed ( more than I can at times). We had so much fun exploring the city and learning more from Dawn than we could have in a group tour. I would not hesitate Dawn for anyone who wants a fun, informative day around London.

Dawn was wonderful. She was waiting for us at the cruise terminal and we sped off to London which was almost a two hour drive. She talked the entire trip. Our first stop was Westminster Abbey where we started our tour with tea. Excellent tour. So much information. It was a cold day with on and off rain. Much of our sight seeing was from the car unfortunately but Dawn made the City come alive with her commentary. We ended our 8 hour tour with a trip to Harrods and of course Dawn came with us! A delight!

Dawn was a fantastic tour guide!! Our experience was informative, fun, and friendly! Overall a very positive experience! Dawn was very accomodating; she arranged to have car seats available for our children, she was naturally warm with the children, and moved at our family's pace. She also made our entries to each site seamless and stress-free. Dawn is knowledgable and passionate about history and it shows in the way she shares stories and details about London and the tour sites. We loved our experience!!

Dawn Blee is a great tour guide. We retained her for two days: Day 1 London and Day 2 Stonehenge. Dawn is personable and knowledgeable, and she conveys her information clearly, accurately and pleasantly. She adapted our tours on the fly to meet our needs and to avoid crowds. For example, when we discovered that our "old style" pounds were unacceptable, Dawn rearranged our tour to go near the Bank Of England where we could exchange the "old" for the "new." We highly recommend her to London visitors.

Dawn was quite knowledgeable about where to take us and all the history behind it. She answered all our questions with wit and sometimes a joke. She was quite accommodating when our transit cards did not work for the water taxi by pulling out 4 separate transit cards to cover us. She also took a slower pace for one of us to keep up. I would definitely book a tour from her again!!!

She did a great job of taking us around the highlights and engaging the kids throughout the tour. She was an excellent storyteller and several times had the kids captivated. The kids expressed how nice she was and that she was always smiling. Also she could answer any question we threw at her including history questions or current events. We simply had a great day.

Dawn lead us on an excellent adventure with the unexpected extra of seeing the Queen go by on her way to opening Parliament. Dawn made Westminster Abby come alive with a wealth of information about British history, science and the arts. She also taught us how to get around in London. All in all a great guide.

Dawn was a brilliant guide. She has a talent for breathing life into history and had my 12 year old daughter as enthralled by Westminster abbey (a much dreaded excursion) as she was by the Crown Jewels. She has a trove of information that keeps history interesting and makes the places you visit more memorable (the significance of the 2 on the clock at Horse Guards Parade, the composition of the lions in Trafalger Square etc). HIGHLY recommend!!

I arranged a private tour with Dawn, making a specific request to see sites in London related to the Plantagenet dynasty. We discussed the planning of the tour through a series of emails. I let her know that my husband and adult daughter would be accompanying me and knew little about medieval England. She took us on an amazing 7 hour walking tour of London, including a 2 hour tour of Westminster Abbey and ending at the Tower of London. All of us were fascinated with her tour. Highly recommend!

Booking this tour with Dawn B. was a great decision! She is amazing - she is a very knowledgeable guide and she was genuinely interested in working with me to create two perfect days. I could never have seen as many wonderful sights in two days on my own. She also picked up on my interests and worked in some very special surprises. I highly recommend both Tours By Locals and Dawn.

what a wonderful day we spent with dawn. we had to make a last minute change to the time but she was very pleasant about it. upon meeting her we were both very comfortable because of her pleasant personality. we wanted to focus on areas of london other than the main attractions. she brought to areas that most tourists never visit. she did however take us to the abbey and the london tower. her knowledge about these places were very impressive. we learned so much from her. i would highly recommend dawn

Our trip to London was made perfect by Dawn. From her first contact, Dawn was responsive, helpful,and very patient. Our experience with her was by far the best way to see London's main attractions. Efficient, knowledgeable and entertaining he took my family of 4, on a two day tour that included much more than we ever could have done on our own. She went out of her way to pick us up both mornings from where we were staying and in the evening ensured we didn't get lost. We would highly recommend Dawn!

We had only 2 half-days to see London. Dawn was already commited our first day, but she arranged tickets for a Thames ferry and to visit the Tower of London and advised us on finding a centrally-located hotel and the best tickets for the London Eye. The next day, Dawn took us on an amazing walking tour; taking in an incredible amount of history and architecture, including a tour of Westminster Abbey. Dawn is such an engaging guide! She really knows her city and its history. We had a wonderful time!
