My group of four adults, had a wonderful walking tour of London! We only had 4 hours and it was our first time in London! Edward got the job done, we visited all the landmarks on our list and he customized a stop to Covent Gardens! He was pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks Ed! We will be back!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure and I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour

Edward is amazing! He is a walking encyclopedia of information. He keeps a good pace- not too slow, not too fast. He is very knowledgeable and can answer any question you need. We were with him for 6 hours with 3 kids (ages 10, 12, 14). He kept their attention and might have been the best history lesson the kids have ever had! Would highly recommend him! He is flexible and willing to customize whatever your needs are!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the kind words. Have a lovely time in London

One of the very best tours my family and I have ever taken. Edward was beautifully descriptive, patient, a wonderful explainer, and so personable. He knew the British Museum like an old friend, and made it come alive for me, my wife, and my two children. I'd book a tour with Edward no matter where he went, which is the highest praise I can give.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's very kind of you Robert. I took a look at your books on amazon. They seem very interesting

Our half day tour with Edward was wonderful. He took great care to show us all things that were of interest to us; including the oldest wine bar in London! It was a terrific afternoon and would recommend any of his guided tours for hire.

Edward was incredible. He was waiting for us at the steps of the museum and we went through it in slightly over 3 hours.He has amazingly vast knowledge of all the collections, artifacts,items and periods that are housed at the British Museum.He was helpful in reminding us about historical facts we couldn't possibly remember and put them in context. Explanations were clear and interesting. Kept us engaged. Don't go to the British Museum without him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's a lovely review Cristina. Many thanks

This was a very interesting city and became more so by having Edward, our guide, explain in detail every single spot. My elderly parents came along and he was very patient and communicative with them. We had lunch at a lovely place and traveled there by train. It was a very enjoyable day

Edward was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide for the British Museum! He kept it interesting and interactive for our children! His knowledge of history and the museum is quite impressive. The museum can be overwhelming- make the most of your time with a guided tour with Edward! He even showed us to a great, quiet, outdoor lunch spot after our tour, which we were most grateful for!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to be with you and the boys were so nice and polite

Edward is fabulous! If you choose a walking tour with him, be ready to walk! He is, however, quite willing to customize the tour to whatever you would like to see. He is extremely knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. We felt like we were with a friend on a leisurely stroll of the area. He was able to weave facts and history into the converstion so it was not like you were being lectured. I sincerely recommend Edward! If we get back to London we will be looking him up again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's very kind of you Kathleen thank and it was a pleasure for me too
