We covered as much of London as humanly possible in one day, including an unplanned side trip to the Temple Bar and Church. Amanda was knowledgeable and a delight to travel with. We heartily recommend her to future travelers.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We did cover a lot and I’m glad you enjoyed the day! I hope you had a restful journey home.

This was a second day we spent with Ms Amanda on this London visit. It is invaluable to have an expert guide, and one who seemingly effortlessly works hard and truly enjoys what she does. All of our comments on our "Welcome back to London" tour fit here as well. It is one thing to see all the sights, and another to really understand what it is you're looking at. Amanda provided that deeper understanding, answering our many questions with her most impressive knowledge during a truly enjoyable day.

Ms Amanda is the very best! The tour was fabulous. We covered incredible ground at a pleasant pace, as one can only do with an expert guide. This was our third extended visit to London, so the "must sees" were past and a deeper understanding required. We could not possibly have seen what we saw, let alone learned all we did, in even two days by ourselves, and Amanda provided the historical context with her extensive knowledge and wonderful communication skills. Thank you for a great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you - it was a real pleasure for me to show you round and we certainly did manage to cover a lot in a day! So glad you both enjoyed it. Enjoy the rest of your stay in London.

Amanda showed up right on time at our flat. She is a positive, intelligent, and charming woman. I booked her onthe advice of my coworker who met her on his trip the year before. Amanda was just odelightful as we made our way through the streets of our apartment neighborhood to Tower Bridge, and up over to London Tower. There was no question she couldn't answer. I love learning about history but also how to function in a new environment. She gave us great ideas for activities in days to come. Loved her.

We engaged Amanda for two full days in London, starting the day we arrived overnight. She planned a great itinerary so that things like house guards were right there, as if ordered. Amanda is organized and knowledgeable, partially because she has trained for the Blue badge. I'd put her in the top 20%of the many guides we've used. We are grateful that we found her for this trip

This is our second wonderful day with Amanda. On this day we covered a lot of ground. She does not just take you to an attraction, she personally leads you through the attraction, explaining the key points along the way. In this manner, we saw more sites but learned more about each site. The usual recorded tours present a lot of information, most of which does not sink in.

Amanda is special. We had two days to see London. She really mapped out the entire tour. We were there on a bank holiday (unknown to us). So, she had to anticipate where the local crowds would be to maximize the locations that she wanted to show us. She never failed to answer any question thrown at her. She learned that there would be a practice parade (for the Queen's Official birthday), so she arranged to position us at the best site to see this parade. She personalized every site we saw. Great Job!

Amanda was phenomenal. Great weather aside, my sister and I had a wonderful time not just being guided around London, but also talking with and learning from her. We had no idea where to start or how to prioritize our stops, but Amanda knew where to go, how to get there efficiently, and all the ins and outs of the history and significance of the various sites. We saw and learned about more than I can possibly lay out in this review, and enjoyed every moment of it. I would not change one thing! Five stars!

Amanda was absolutely great! She was very knowledgeable and efficient. Also she was clever and funny which is a blessing on a day long tour. One of the great things she was able to do was get us in early to see the crown jewels. this way instead of a long wait in line and hundreds of people there was no line and maybe 15 or 20 people. Her passion for the history and traditions of London were must evident from the tears she shed standing and listening to Ben Ben stake for the last time for four years.

Today my family and I had a great tour today around London with Amanda. She met us on our hotel lobby which was extremely convenient. She was early. The tour was well planned. She knew many short cuts to Expedite lines. It seemed the staff at these attractions knew Amanda. She was extremely knowledgeable and very efficient. There was no time wasting on the tour. We saw a lot today. I rate her a 5 out of 5 and would recommend her to anyone coming to London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great to meet you all! Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.

Amanda provided my wife, 11 year-old granddaughter, and I with an outstanding tour experience today. She was friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgable about the various sites we visited. She took the time to get to know what are interests were, and managed our time extremely well. Most importantly, she established a wonderful rapport with our granddaughter and explained the history and importance of the sites in an understandable and interesting manner. We would recommend Amanda without hesitation.

We gave Amanda the most difficult assignment: show us the London which, after the obvious spots we have now visited, will most appeal to our idiosyncratic tastes. In this she triumphed, notwithstanding the demanding audience. Amanda is educated, highly intelligent, intuitive, and articulate. I must add that she is also witty, friendly and patient and possesses an unsurpassed energy. Five stars? She has a sixth star in our memory.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed meeting you both, and the challenges and rewards of showing some of my favourite parts of London to two extremely well-informed visitors!

Very knowledgeable, with an immaculately clean car. The ride to Churchill's "castle" home was spectacular taking some of the byways. She took us to a local pup that serves excellent local food. We made a few stops including Ann Boleyn's home and looking at the architecture of the local town. Our driver was extremely courteous and a very careful driver. All in all a great day outside of London.

Amanda is knowledgeable and utilizes the time you have together very well. She blended walking with catching a cab for efficiency as well as a ride on the river for a different perspective of the city. She provides great background to the sites visited without droning on and on. She was sensitive to the fact we had been up for more than 24 hours and checked frequently as to our energy level before offering the next place to visit. We had a wonderful day with her and would highly recommend Amanda.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you - it was lovely to meet you both and I hope you have a wonderful anniversary cruise!

Amanda arrived a little early before our appointed time in our hotel lobby and spent a few minutes getting to know our interests before we headed out for the day. Amanda was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional, suggesting ways to make the most of our time and adjusting her narrative based on our level of interest. She suggested some additional attractions we could visit on our own during other days of our trip. We highly recommend her and would consider another tour with Amanda in the future.
