Marina toured us through London for a day taking us to some sites we had requested, and others that she chose for us. We (my husband and I) were travelling with two of our grandsons, aged 12 and 9. The tour was interesting, very informative, and fun for all ages. Marina went above and beyond to help us with any questions we had and to make us feel welcome in London. Many, many thanks. We certainly recommend Marina as a tour guide and will hope to book a tour with her again next time we come to London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: David, The pleasure was mine, indeed! I have also learnt more about the incredible participation of the American pilots during WW2. We are forever in debt to those who were defending our lives and peace. Best wishes to you all. Marina

Marina gave us a wonderful tour! We saw and learned many things we would never have seen on our own. Her insight into the history was priceless. A big bonus was her teaching us how to navigate the underground, which was a big help for the rest of our trip. I would highly recommend her.

We absolutely LOVED every minute with Marina and were extremely impressed with all of her knowledge of London. She is like a walking Wikipedia :-). We loved how she engaged our teens with questions reviewing the info she gave us (we got to experience "real" London today; the protesting was actually quite "intriguing"). Spending our first day with her (of 6) was the perfect way to start off our visit to London. Now we know exactly how we wish to plan the rest of our time here. Thank you Marina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sarah, your lovely review makes me blush - thank you for your kind words. Your family are so knowledgeable and enthusiastic - I am happy that we all had a lot of fun! Enjoy England and don't forget - we have Scotland for your future exploration! )))

Marina is an excellent guide providing a depth of knowledge that goes beyond the "tour book", DVD and website information. She is professional on all levels, gracious in accommodating special requests and has a solid grasp of time allocation. We could not have done the tour on our own: Marina created memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks so very much. Ron & Denise

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Denise and Ron, It was a pleasure hosting you both and sharing with you my passion for Britain and its culture and history. Reading your reviews gives me immense satisfaction as a tour guide. My best regards, Marina

Tom and I had a day tour of London which started with a walk from our hotel to the London train for subway which took us to the Westminster area for a short walk to Westminster Abbey. As we walked through the Abby Marina explained the old history of Queens and Kings, we walked among the history filled burial stones and discussed the artist of the Abby and additions to the structure itself. We enjoyed Buckingham Place, ST. James Place and park, a hat shop, it was a wonderful day. Thank you Marina

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom and Anne, I am very glad for you having had a lovely day filled with historical treasures and beauty for the eye and soul. Hope you would love to come back - there is so much to experience in Britain!

Marina gave our group an outstanding tour of London in a day. Since London is so crowded in the city area, we were able to move around easily by walking and taking the underground. She knew an incredible about Westminster Abbey and the surrounding area of London. She was helpful, cheerful, prompt, and interesting. I recommend Marina highly for tours of London.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, Thank you for your review. It was very nice to meet your group and share with you all some of the best places in our magnificent city. I hope you have had a great time on your travels. Looking forward to your return to England - there is so much to see!

Marina was an excellent tour guide for our family of four (which includes two teenage boys!) She was full of interesting information and was able to keep our boys engaged. We saw so much of London in one day! She answered all of our questions and was fun to be with. I would highly recommend Marina!

Marina was AMAZING! My son was only going to be in London for one day, although it's not possible to see London in one day Marina managed to fit what would be a four day tour of London into eight educational fun filled hours! She is a wealth of information and an absolute pleasure to spend the day with! This mama's heart is overflowing with gratitude for Marina's personal touches to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne, Thank you for your smashing review! There is nothing better rewarding to me than a happy client. And Frankie was such a wonderful company, too. Knowledgeable, tactful and caring, handsome and smily - I am wishing him a great success with his MBA and with his future endeavours. Safe trip around Europe, Frankie!

Lovely day with Marina for a full day tour of London. Although it was a bit chilly and it was a bank holiday, she adapted the tour accordingly. There is so much history to cover, more than one day is needed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jack and Lupe, for your appreciation. I am glad we managed to avoid the marathon. You and the youngsters, we all did quite well, covering a large number of sites yesterday. Enjoy the rest of your stay!

Marina was WONDERFUL! She was very high energy, efficient at planning site seeing routes in the orders that maximized her time with us, and extremely well informed on the city. She was full of knowledge and helped us navigate with ease and got us to all desired sites and locations! She picked out a lunch spot, set up reservations, and we were in and out in less than an hour! Will be booking with her again when we return, 5 stars!!

Marina was an absolute treasure. She arrived early and we set off on a day walking tour of London. She was a fountain of knowledge about the history of England and specifically London. Besides the normal tourist spots she took us to see many unusual places where the average visitor would not see. Despite a shutdown of two of the major subway lines, Marina was able to successfully navigate the city to ensure we saw the best of the London sites. It was a long day but well worth the expense.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Harry, for your review. Im glad I could share our fabulous city with you. Hope to host you on your next visit! My best wishes to you, Marina

Marina is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Great Britain. We visited London for a day and Oxford + Windsor a second day and these tours were the highlights of our visit to England. She was very conscious of our interests as we planned and took into account our special requests. She knew exactly how best to use every moment of our time to give us a thorough but relaxed experience. We brought our boys, 16, 13 and 9 and Marina's style kept them interested and attentive for the entire time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Darren, thank you so much for your lovely review. Frankly, I felt like I was with my relatives. And "my nephews" were so wonderful! My very best to you all.
