  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What an amazing tour. Our guide, Mark was excellent, my wife and I really enjoyed it.

    The facts and things that Mark showed us we never would have found on our own. I would highly recommend this tour!

    My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Justin was our tour guide and he was entertaining and professional. He made sure we left each stop on time and he gave us important information along the way. Each stop was just enough time to browse the local shops and take pictures. I highly recommend this tour for a day trip to the Cotswolds.

    My husband and I had 4 days on our first trip to London and taking this tour was definitely a highlight of the trip. Tom was our guide and he was awesome! He was early to pick us up from our hotel and he made sure to ask what we wanted to see. He was so kind and took pictures of us throughout the tour so we didn’t have to take selfies. At the end of the tour he recommended a restaurant for lunch and even dropped us off there. This tour was a great way to see so much of the city. I highly recommend it!

    Can’t recommend this semi-private tour enough. Coming in after the last day time tour meant we practically had the place to ourselves. We could explore at our own pace without the crowds and really get a good look at everything!

    Our tour guide, John, was excellent! Very knowledgeable. It would have been so much more difficult to do on our own. With limited time, this tour was worth it. I will warn however that we had a problem. I thought I’d booked the extra EYE experience. The tour guide, said we had the Harrod’s Tea. Trip Advisor’s emails to me didn’t indicate that. The website and the subsequent emails to me afterward was not clear. Also, I had purchased four tickets and when we were at Harrod’s the tour operator said only two. It got straightened out. REVIEW closely!

    Isla was an amazing tour guide with a vast amount of knowledge of London’s history. She had a great sense of humor as well. Fair warning- you are on your feet the entire time at a fairly good clip.

    The tour was fantastic! 5 hours flew by in the blink of an eye. We found the meeting instructions straightforward, and ended up with Nicolas as our guide. He was knowledgeable, approachable, and set the bar high for tours to come. We got to enjoy history and views and spent enough time to feel familiar and confident to navigate through London. I can’t recommend this tour enough!

    Anna is an organized, punctual and just overall fantastic tour guide.

    We had an amazing day with Anna in Paris! Covering a lot of ground by bus, on foot, and by boat. She is a wealth of historical and cultural knowledge.

    Her bubbly personality and humor as we rode through Paris on our comfortable bus made for a memorable trip.

    Although we didn’t get to dine at the Eiffel Tower, the lunch at the restaurant on the River Seine was delicious.

    On a personal note, thank you so much for helping me with the souvenir cup for my daughter. It meant so much to me.

    A real sweetheart!!! Nice meeting you - Great job Anna!
