I visited London with my family as a graduation gift and it was fantastic. Glen is hilarious and gave an absolutely amazing tour. He is very knowledgable about everything, was super helpful and nice by taking pictures of all of us, and just made the trip loads of fun. Plus, it was all at our own pace so nothing felt... More

Our family had a fantastic vacation this summer as were fortunate enough to find such a knowledgable and personable guide. Glen showed us all the highlights of London and Stonehenge/Windsor Castle over 3 days and we would never have seen as much of this incredible city without him. To keep 3 teenage boys interested and engaged was a challenge but... More

Glen was accommodating from the very start of our day with him, arriving on time and offering to buy us coffee. He was at all times a wealth of information, telling us about the London landmarks and other sites that we passed on our way to Stonehenge and Highclere Castle. He was friendly and amusing and was extremely well prepared... More

We had Glen for a day in London with our grandchildren aged 6 and 9. He was absolutely marvellous for the children (and us). We started with a trip down the River and on to the Tower and he entralled the children with it's history (not easy for non-Britishers) and then on to changing of the guards, more history -... More

We would like to highly recommend Gren Tours. Glen gave us an outstanding tour of the whole Cotswolds region as well as the city of Bath. He was delightful to work with and had such a vast knowledge and understanding of history and the area. He made the area come alive. We will definitely be using him again in the... More

I booked a tour for my parents as a Christmas gift knowing that they would be in London during a summer trip to Europe. I selected Glen after reading all of the reviews on Trip Advisor and must say that their tour exceeded my (and their) expectations. My parents went on the the London by Car tour and enjoyed seeing...

We used Glen as our guide for a last minute trip to Dover Castle, Dover, Canterbury, and a drive by Greenwich. He is an outstanding guide!! Very posh van, complete with supply of beverages, and Glen is a very safe driver. From pick up to drop off, Glen is working for you, trying to give you an excellent experience. His... More

Glen's day-tour of London was wonderful, and jammed packed! Glen picked our group of four up promptly at our hotel and off we went. Glen drove expertly throughout the city, explaining what we were seeing and providing fascinating back-stories with his iPad. Nottinghill was a favorite, as well as the area around Abbey Road. Glen has a thorough knowledge of... More
