Katy ContentUnited States
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.
Lisa L.New York, NY, United States
Edward was our guide through 5000 years of the history of civilization. He knew the best route and the rich tapestry that is the British Museum. He even knew how the collections came into being. A wonderful afternoon

Edward combined our wish list with his knowledge of the important artifacts at the British Museum to bring to life the long and complicated history told by the museum.

Randy LewisUnited States
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. We highly recommend Edward! We were so happy we booked this with ToursbyLocal. We will definitely use this company again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Randy. Hope Florence is as good as you expected
Allison PowellUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much allison Hope to eres you ask again one day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the kind review Eric. Hope we meet up again once day
Vik RaghavanUnited States
Wow is all I can say about Edward as a person and a tour guide. You get to be the fabric of London on his tour. We had a sick baby and had to reschedule the tour a couple of times.

A wonderful day with a very experienced and courteous guide.When informed of my interest in old books, I was taken to book shops in Cambridge and to the London library when we arrived back in London at the end of the day. That ' extra mile' often rare and much appreciated.I would highly recommend Edward as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind review prudence. I enjoyed our day in cambridge
John McFerranUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the kind words John. It was a pleasure for me too
Pavy UnvalaUnited States
The tour was perfect. Edward has a great knowledge of the city and quickly determined our interests and catered to them. He had a perfect spot for watching the changing of the guard and was friendly, accommodating, and very enjoyable. Based on information he gave us, we were able to adjust our schedules to go back and see some exhibits that we didn't know were open and would have missed otherwise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you
Tracy PerrelleUnited States
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you too Tracy. Hope to meet up again one day Arigato
Sari BitticksUnited States
Edward and I had traded emails before the tour and had gone over what I particularly wanted to see. He covered everything, plus bit more. I thoroughly enjoyed the British Museum and found Edward to be an excellent source of information. In addition, he showed me how to use my new Oyster card and how to navigate the underground. On the way to the museum he pointed out Ll the places he thought I would find interesting. I really appreciated his expertise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much sari. It was a pleasure to meet you
Mitchell BrittUnited States
Edward was fantastic! He was both flexible regarding our schedule and incredibly knowledgeable as well. He helped us navigate the Victoria and Albert Museum with ease and showed us exactly what we asked to see including the silver floor which is amazing. In addition, he was both kind and sensitive to the needs of my parents who are in their 70's, resting as necessary. Finally, once my parents headed back to the hotel, he took me on a magnificent walking tour of Kensington. Edward is OUTSTANDING!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was a pleasure for me too

Edward was a wonderful guide for my recent trip to London with my daughter. It was a first visit for both of us and we only had a few days. Edward was very informative and gave us a great overview of the city, incorporating a few major highlights in the day we spent together. He was charming and related equally well to me and my 17-year old daughter. He was also helpful in helping us map out a realistic plan for our remaining days. We will definitely reach out to him for future visits!

Claudia GardUnited States
Edward was an excellent tour guide! He was sensitive to our areas of interest as well as our pace. His extensive knowledge of the history of the periods from which the artifacts came, provided a quite interesting perspective. He readily directed us to what he considered to be the most significant artifacts, thus enablying us to gain a omprehensive overview of the massive collection. Our visit would not have been nearly as comprehensive without his guidance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words Claudia. It was a pleasure to meet you all
Harold AlexanderUnited States
Edward was fabulous! We toured the museum with our 12 year old grandson who was studying ancient history. Edward kept him completely engaged (a difficult task). He is extremely knowledgeable and personable. There were 8 family members in our group. He related so well to each of us. Because of his knowledge of both the museum and its artifacts, our time there was very efficiently utilized. He was, by far, the best city guide we have ever had.
Harold AlexanderUnited States
Edward was fabulous! We toured unusual sites such as the Veteran's retirement home as well as more popular sites in the City, the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels . He is extremely knowledgeable and personable. There were 8 family members in our group. He related so well to each of us and kept us thoroughly engaged. Our 10 year old granddaughter and our 12 year old grandson related to him so well, They were sad when the day ended! He was, by far, the best city guide we have ever had.

This is our second day with Edward. He continued to impress and surprise us on special neighborhoods in London. His professionalism truly shined in the British Museum. With his introduction, we appreciate and learn a great deal from ancient Egyptian to Greek history in under 2 hours. Unfortunately, we ran our of time due to my departure time to Paris. My family really hoped to spend more time with Edward. We hugged and said goodbye at the station. We hope to see him again in the future!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind review Jeff. It was a pleasure to be with your family. Have a lovely time in Paris

Anderson TingleyUnited States
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.

Wayne YoshigaiUnited States
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
Linda S.United States
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!
James W.United States
Edward is a very experienced guide with a thorough knowledge of history and of London. Our appreciation for the sights was enhanced greatly by his ability to explain the historical context and significance of what we were seeing. We highly recommend him.
James W.United States
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
Ernestine MorganUnited States
Edward was awesome! It was our first time in London and he gave us a terrific overview of the city. He is very knowledable about londons history.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the kind words Mr Clark. Hope to see you again one day
Bettina K.United States
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bettina. It was a pleasure having someone like yourselves who enjoyed the museum so much
Brian RoleyUnited States
Edward is an excellent guide. He was very accommodating in arranging things ahead of time. He's an interesting conversationalist so even the travel from one place to another was interesting. He knows a lot about English history, but we also enjoyed picking his brain about contemporary life and events.
Krista ParmaUnited States
Another fabulous day with Edward...this time touring the City of Westminster! Edward once again engaged the children and adults in our group, and we learned more and had much more fun than we would have possibly have had on our own. He made Westminster Abbey especially interesting for all! We highly recommend Edward for any tours of London! Wish he could come with us on all our journeys.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks si much krista
Krista ParmaUnited States

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!

Our full day with Edward was excellent. He met us at our hotel in Westminster at 11:00 AM (flight was delayed arrival of 2 hours) and spent the whole day with us walking the streets of London and providing the tour we asked for in earlier email communication. We wanted to see the highlights of London and Edward tailored the tour to give us an excellent overview. He's very well versed in the background and history of the area and a most personable companion. We highly recommend Edward!

England is a country rich in history and steeped in tradition. Edward impressed us time and time again with his immense knowledge and understanding of this.

He made sure our diverse group of seven, including two seniors and three children were all well taken care of.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's very kind of you and I thank you all
Nancy ZimmermanUnited States
I booked this tour in order to filter through the massiveness of the British Museum, so that I would go directly to the things that were of importance to our family. Edward was fantastic. He knew how to maneuver the museum to avoid the crowds, gave history and information that kept our interest. He recommended the British Library and told us what to see. He helped us figure out the tube and how to use it. Edward was wonderful and I hope to book our next tour with him when in London. A first class guide
Nancy VazquezUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Nancy. Hope u had a lovely time in London

Michael WongHonolulu, HI, United States
Edward B was an exceptional tour guide and exemplified the best qualities for Tours by Locals. Our 2 days of "open tours" in attractions needed much exchange in planning, and organizating between the group and the guide. Our party of 8 adults experienced tailored tours of the attractions, starting with Westminister Abbey, changing of the Guards, and Tower of London. Our photos and videos especially the Changing of the Guards have close ups shots as Edward positioned us at a logistical station.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Michael and Bev. It was a pleasure to be with you all. I hope the cruise went well.

Great guy, extremely knowledgeable, entertaining. Knows all the ins and outs. Most important is that he knew all the ways to avoid the incredible London lines. Well worth the time and cost.
