Comprehensive, educational, enjoyable, flexible, well led.

Carly was our tour leader who was excellent. She adjusted the shape of the tour to meet the requests of the 6 visitors. We had wonderful opportunities to see and visit the Royal Mint, the Senate House (which was newly in use), the market area etc. The river tour was very good with a change of guide who was sometimes difficult to hear clearly - but a great opportunity for photographs of the buildings and for refreshments (not scheduled but requested by the visitors and arranged by Carly - thank you!). We shared a very comfortable 7 seater 'car' and got know each other well enough to have discussion and ask quite challenging questions - Carly was quick with the answers. A 4 hour trip that extended to 8hrs - tiring but worth every minute. Thank you.

Yes we sure did. It was awesome and our tour guide did a fabulous job showing us sites with regards to the diplomatics, where they lived, their unique license plates, took us to places we not find on our own. Very well done. Great job would highly recommend to other visitors. Tracey Lawrence

Fantatsic Tour and Experience

The tour was group was small and intimate. This made the tour less formal and rushed and it was a great way to enjoy the day. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Loved the stops and got to know a lot more of the city than I would ever have learned on my own.
