We planned a trip for our 50th anniversary and chose to see Southern England. We wanted to have an easy trip and get to see small villages, castles and the seashore without the hassle of driving ourselves. We chose Robina Brown as our guide and driver. We couldn't have chosen anyone better. She is an excellent driver whose knowledge of... More

We were so lucky to have chosen Robina for our day trip to the Cotswolds. Having chosen other private tours in various countries, we know when someone is the best. Not only did she plan our day well, but her knowledge about what we saw and where we traveled was complete. She did however contribute to our disappointment with a... More

We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids aged 11-15) and were visiting from Toronto. We wanted to spend one day sightseeing outside London so arranged for Robina to take us to Stratford, the Cotswolds and Oxford. Booking was easy and Robina was very accommodating in terms of what we wanted to do/see over our 10 hours... More

I'm so glad that you enjoyed your day to the Cotswolds. I'm pleased that we discussed Stonehenge at lunchtime, so I could at least show you the Rollright Stones, so you did get to see a stone circle. More

My daughter and I just completed an ancestral tour of Europe and hired Robina to help us with the branch of our family that came to America from England. We spent two days with Robina who met us at the train station for a carefully planned agenda that worked perfectly. I had provided the names of the villages where my... More

Over four summers, from 2012 to 2015, my sister and I have seen Tintagel in Cornwall, Lindesfarne in Northumberland and Hadrian's wall, Canterbury, Maes Howe in the Orkneys and much in between. Through time, from the sites of the early Britons, the Romans, Normans, Tudors, all the way to the cutting edge Eden Project, whatever your particular passion, let Robina... More

I have thoroughly enjoyed all my tours with you both. We've been to some amazing places together. We started with Roman Britain and then enlarged it to anything prehistoric, old, Celtic, pagan or just interesting! That gave us a wide scope to include hill forts, stone circles, burial mounds, Roman ruins, Celtic crosses, Saxon churches, plus Bletchley Park and the... More

Robina gave us exactly what we asked for....plus much more! She had so much extra insight and intimate knowledge of every place we visited....or even passed by....that it really added to our London visit. She had great places to eat reserved for us and was even responsible for helping us book our B&B where we stayed during our time in... More

I recently visited England from Canada for the first time with my daughter-in-law and had the privilege of having Robina Brown as our tour guide. Our different visits to palaces, castles, magnificient gardens, whimsical villages, pubs, etc. were tremendously enhanced by her amazing knowledge of royal history and of various interesting sites. Our tour was so well organized and every... More

I was recently in London for a "Downton Abbey" tour. Robina was our tour guide to Highclere castle and beyond. Her knowledge of everything "British" is extraordinary! She gave us a wonderful drive around tour of London ( before we headed out to the countryside) full of anecdotal information on everything from architecture and politics to the Royal family. When...

Robina provided an amazing introduction to England/London. She was always on time and got us back to the hotel when scheduled. She prearranged all the tickets she could for us and booked our train trip to Bath.
