From the initial inquiry to the executed tour it was a flawless and remarkable experience. Could not more highly recommend this tour company. We had a 5 day tour of London Bath and Stonehenge. We are a family of five with 3 children all under 16 so the challenge was to make a trip that all would enjoy. Laura at the start was so helpful, we provided her with details of what we would like to do and she made suggestions to come up with an initial itinerary. Once complete, Sandie was instrumental in organizing the layout of the tour, what to expect on each day and what would be appropriate. Graham was our driver and was so accommodating. Once in the car he took us around but also made additions to what he thought we and our children would like and just added them on as he saw fit. He was an amazing tour guide and an exceptional human being who really cared about all of us enjoying our experience. Graham definitely went above and beyond hie job expectations - taking us to the best places for photo opportunities etc, and we are so grateful for him. Tony was our substitute driver on the last day as graham unfortunately had car trouble - he was amazing and just took us around as planned and it was like there was no break or anything in our already very busy schedule. Each day was filled to the maximum with places to go and things to see. All tickets had already been purchased for us through the tour company and all were "fast pass" and so there was minimal waiting. The entire holiday was so very enjoyable and there was absolutely no stress. We returned home relaxed and happy. This tour company is a must if you are considering a private scheduled tour of London or the UK - the people are amazing at each level and you will not be disappointed.
