Glen was an amazing guide who had great knowledge and history, both for England as a whole and the London area! We used Gren Tours for airport pick up and transfer, a local London tour, and two day trips to Stonehenge and another to Dover/Canterbury and Leeds Castle. All of which were run efficiently, professionally and with fun and humor,... More

During the tour he was personable and very knowledgeable making it a fantastic tour. We traveled with our son, daughter in law and two... More

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

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
