Edward was fantastic! Our family of 6 was delayed a day due to weather conditions and he graciously arranged to provide our tour the following day. Edward also went out of his way to meet us on the tube and help us find our flat. He was knowledgeable, personable, kind and energetic. His tour was the perfect way to start our trip. I highly recommend him and would take any tour he was leading.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's so kind of you Carol. I I hope the rest of the trip went well. Edward

My husband and I toured with our 20 year old daughter. It was easy to meet up with Edward and he was flexible in the timing (I like to sleep in, so we met a little later in the morning). Edward was thoughtful as to our needs like bathroom stops or snack breaks. He was full of knowledge and told us information that we never would have otherwise known. By the end we felt as if he were a friend-he even dropped us off at a super cool place where we enjoyed drinking wine in a cave! Six thumbs up!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Emily. I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour.

We very much enjoyed our tour with Edward for Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. He is a very knowledgeable guide and our whole family enjoyed spending the day with him! Our 3 teenage children said that it was their best day in London doing this tour and they loved it. We would not hesitate to recommend and use Edward again when we go back to London. If you choose him for your guide, you will not be disappointed and you will learn a lot too! We highly recommend.

I will begin by saying that my family takes many walking and biking tours when we travel so our expectations can be pretty high. Edward was on time, very polite and very well informed. We took a 6 hour tour. While we covered much of the city by subway, bus and on foot, we only actually went in to the Tower of London. We stopped for lunch. The pace was slower than we would normally like and we felt Edward was not the best fit for our family. Someone more gregarious may have been better.

We had a long layover in London on our way to Florence. Edward was punctual at our requested meeting place. He gave us a fantastic walking tour of the city. We had never been to the city and he gave us the perfect introductory tour. He went out of his way to take us to the correct train departure before we left the city as well.

Edward was very accommodating and pleasant even though our tour date happened to fall on an unseasonably cold, snowy Sunday! He knew a lot of facts about everything we visited, and it was very nice to skip through the crowds at our own pace. He led us through the underground transportation, and even took extra time to see that we found a good restaurant at the end of the tour. He gave us great advice on how to arrange our self-guided tours the next day.

Edward was the perfect guide for a day in Cambridge. He knows his way around the colleges and has a wealth of information on each one. Our visit was made so much more worthwhile being with Edward than had we attempted to do this on our own. And, as an added treat, after leaving Kings Cross Station on our way back in a short walk Edward took us to the British Library on Euston Road. The library (free) has a mind boggling collection of documents ancient and modern including the Magna Carta on display.

Edward arrived early and ensured we took the best advantage of our four hour tour. We traveled around the city easily on foot and using the underground on a Sunday when the traffic was relatively light. Edward was informative and enjoyable to spend the day with. He also conducts a tour in Cambridge which I highly recommend when traveling to the U.K. We have been on several tours using Tours by Locals and would highly recommend this tour as a way to see the city highlights in half a day. Thanks Edward!

Edward is a true professional and gentleman. We enjoyed his company. His knowledge of the city of London and U.K. History are impressive. His storytelling skills kept us engaged throughout the trip .. there is never a boring moment. He is detailed, friendly, and accommodating .. you cannot ask for a better guide and friend!

Edward is a wonderful guide! He is extremely knowledgable and easy going. He took my mother, my two college age sons and me around for two days and kept everyone engaged despite the age gap. He is also very flexible and will cater the tour to his clients' wishes. I would recommend Edward as a guide for any family or anyone visiting London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Annie for your kind words. How to see you again one day

Edward is a personable and knowledgeable guide who customized our tour of Kensington to match our interests. He walked us through neighborhoods that we would not have found on our own, and we experienced things that we could not have experienced without him. For example, he walked us through the Royal Hospital Chelsea where we met one of the few female Chelsea Pensioners! Our tour included highlights of the Victoria and Albert Museum in addition to Kensington Palace.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Wayne. Hope to see you again in London

For six hours Edward squired us around London. We saw Parliament, Big Ben, and the Abraham Lincoln statute. Next we took the Tube to St. John's Gate and walked to Abbey Road, where we re-enacted the album cover and visited Abbey Studio's gift shop. After coffee, it was onto the British Library, where we browsed the ancient manuscripts, including the Magna Carta and a copy of Beowulf from 1000AD. Later we saw Station 9 & 3/4s (for Harry Potter fans), the Guildhall, Roman ruins, and more. Great day!

Edward has a wealth of knowledge about the British Museum and its contents that he was able to draw upon in introducing us to its collections. Had we attempted to visit the museum without his assistance, we would never have gotten as much out of the experience. Of course we could not see everything in a half-day; but Edward curated the exhibits to point out those things of most interest. He is an enjoyable companion as well; like having a knowledgeable friend guide you through the Museum.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind review James and it was really a pleasure for me too

We spent a full day touring London with Edward. He is a great tour guide. He made sure we visited the attractions at the right time. We did not spend any time waiting in line at any of the attractions even though London was very busy on the day we were there. He had us watch the changing of the guard at a less crowded location which was great. We were able to get some great pictures without the crowds of people. We highly recommend Edward if you are visiting London.

Edward was terrific! We e mailed about the meeting location ahead of time and met up exactly as planned. The British Museum is massive and we were thrilled to have a guide as knowledgeable and personable as Edward. He took us to the highlights in each exhibit and we learned so much--no way could we have done the same in just a few hours on our own. Afterward, Edward walked us to the British Library, which we enjoyed on our own--and he oriented us to the tube (London Underground). Great London guide!

We were so fortunate to get Edward B for our London full-day tour. He has decades of experience and knows his history and related subjects very well. He took the list of the major sites we wanted to see, suggested what we could see on our own the next morning, and gave us a rich, full day of London history. In addition to being very educated and knowledgeable, he is charming and funny and was a delight to spend the day with. We cannot recommend him more highly!
