Glen of Gren is simply a wonderful guide. He communicates promptly in the planning stages, helps to organize the details to perfection, and is dependable and timely in arrival. He clearly knows his history and makes the information fun and entertaining for all ages (we had 2 adults and two children, ages 12 and 9). While we knew what we... More

Glen worked with me two months prior to our arrival in London to organize our custom daily tours. We saw everything we had hoped to see PLUS- despite the rainy weather we had one day. Our tour included all of the fantastic sites of London and some less travelled areas, with no waiting on lines. Super personable, knowledgeable, and friendly.... More

I thought for a while about what to name this review about Gren Tours. The one theme that kept coming up was "a great trip made perfect' because of Glen from Gren Tours. My family and I visited London for the New Year and booked a day tour with Gren Tours for a visit to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge. Glen... More

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

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

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
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.
