You also managed the pace very well and we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole afternoon.” – Alex H, London (City walk)

“I strongly recommend Rowan’s tours.  He was a wonderful guide – he was knowledgeable, personable and very very agreeable.  He had the best titbits on the National Gallery portraits we asked him to show us and he also surprised us with many other things.  Do not hesitate – I would always go back to him and his wonderful tours.” – MF, Mexico

He’s personable, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend!” G&SS, North Carolina (Kensington Palace, V&A, National Portrait Gallery)

“Your total command and delivery of the information was complete and professional.  We couldn’t have asked for a better escort. Your enthusiasm, passion and sense of humor made this a special day for us.”  JB, New York

“… thank you for your efforts last Saturday. You packed a lot in during the morning and the stories of your time at Oxford added enormously to the experience. … my friends enjoyed it so much they have asked me to enquire about other locations you are able to do.” – BT, Cobham (Oxford tour) 

“A thoroughly delightful and informative day” – CB, California 

“The way you designed the day was brilliant, starting with the visit to Holy Trinity Church. … You … quietly set the scene historically and artistically before we began to look at the elements. … Walking from building to building as you explained architectural details and history of place was lovely and for the rest of our week in London we identified those architectural details in other buildings around the city as we wandered. Lunch in the William Morris room at the V&A was such a perfect selection, of course, and I appreciated your curated approach to viewing furniture and decorative arts exhibits in the museum after. It would have been overwhelming otherwise.
Your depth of knowledge and ability to make the subject matter come alive over the course of the tour made the day an unmitigated success for us.
Thank you so much for taking the time to create this beautiful tour for us.” BJ, Texas (Arts and Crafts tour)

“They loved their guide, Rowan, the best!” DD, New York (feedback via agency)

“I wanted to thank you again for the delightful tour we took to Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral.  It was a nice well-planned day tour.  The Tower of London tour the next day was just right for us to get to appreciate and see the highlights of the Tower.  Most importantly, we enjoyed your company.  You were well-informed, efficient and very engaging.”  AC, Philippines

“Both via email and on the phone, you have been most courteous, helpful and generous with your time.  …  [I would also mention] the presence and manner your voice conveys – a Peter Ustinov type of clarity, authority, precision [and] humor.”  AG, Texas

“You were great!  We learned so much.”  PW, New Jersey

“The guests really enjoyed your tour today.  I appreciate your work.”  C, tour manager, USA
