Outstanding guide-Andrew. Very accommodating since Windsor was closed due to the Queen’s death. He was flexible and showed us parts of London we had not seen in previous visits. Private tour for the four of us. An outstanding guide was provided us at Hampton Court. Her name was Sophie. Highly recommend this tour for a private experience in a brand new black taxi (can’t guarantee the “new”).

Great facts about London on the drive to Windsor. Very interesting tour of the chapel. Guidance of what to look for on the audio tour of the state rooms. And a recommendation to see the Dolls House that had just reopened. Very cool. Sheila and Alex made the day seamless and easy. Very enjoyable!

David was great - got me there in good time and was lovely to chat to. At Hampton Court, Jacqui was wonderful - she really knows her stuff! Highly recommend if you are looking to go to both and don’t want to manage that on your own.

Andrew was a wonderful driver and Jackie was a wonderful guide. We thoroughly enjoyed or day.

Mark was a terrific guide and the tour was excellent!
