“"What an AWESOME way to see rural England with Peter West"”
TJBenoit South Windsor, CT
I have utilized TripAdvisor for years now to make an informed choice of hotel, attractions, etc. and have never been steered wrong. This experience was no different. I contacted Peter about 2 months prior to our trip to London and we were lucky enough that he had an opening for this weekend. It had always been a "bucket list" item for me to see the English Countryside - and Peter did not disappoint! He was in contact throughout the booking and payment process, met us promptly at our hotel and whisked us away from London into the countryside exactly according to plan. On the drive, he will tell you as much or as little history about all of England that you care to hear. He is a wealth of knowledge that only years of experience can impart.

Our experience in the country and his attention to detail was simply extraordinary! He is all about showing you the best tour possible. Everything from water bottles in the van, to planned drop offs/pick ups to minimize lag time and excessive walking time had already been planned by him as the trip unfolded.

We are doing a second trip to Dover tomorrow with him and I am positive that my review of that experience will be just as positive. If you are looking for a great way to have England shown to you, rather than figuring it out yourself - call Peter West - he's your guy..

“"the best private tour"”

There's no way a first-time visitor of London can see more of this city. From the start at the meeting point on Heathrow, till the end at our hotel, Peter West was explaining, driving, stopping, walking and pampering. We saw the changing of the guards at the exact best moment, all the highlights, had a great lunch and saw spots that are hard to find (the office of our former queen Wilhelmina during the war) if you don't really prepare (which we didn't). We finished after a long day at our hotel, with a lot of extra information for the other 2 days of our stay.

“"Such a great experience in every way!”"”
Txshrink68 Cedar Park, Texas
We had the pleasure of having Peter as a guide for a three-generation visit to Stonehenge and Bath. It was such a wonderful experience in every way. Peter has a level of knowledge regarding the two sites that encompassed the history and culture of both. We all learned new information about the area in spite of prior visits for some of the group.

Peter has a great way of keeping the younger members of the group engaged. He helped them understand the history, but also helped them understand how all of the earlier cultures had contributed to the current. They came away with considerable interest in both time periods. We heard LOTS about it during the rest of the trip as well as back in Texas.

We were so appreciative of all of the other types of information that Peter shared. His knowledge of history provided us with much information. However, Peter also gave us a unique view of the UK including understanding the current politics, economics, and social forces at work. All told, we felt that we had experienced a brief course in English history during the day! Peter was also a great source of information regarding other activities that we were likely to enjoy in London. Thanks to Peter, we added several enjoyable activities to our agenda.

In addition to the interest that Peter took in making the historical events meaningful for the children in our party, he showed such consideration for the senior members. One of the party has some mobility issues, and Peter was always considerate in terms of locating good parking, slowing the pace, etc. Although these would seem to be common courtesies for tour guides, it is seldom the case. It was greatly appreciated and contributed to the pleasant atmosphere of the day.

Our only regret was that we had not booked Peter for a tour of London as well. All of the 7 members of the group commented several times during the remainder of the trip..."Wish we had Peter to explain this."

My family (3 teens and 2 seniors) spent 2 days with Peter on our recent trip to London. Our first tour was the London in a day tour. Peter picked us up at our hotel and whisked us away for a wonderful full day tour. Peter taught us about the history and showed us all of the beautiful pageantry that London has to offer. Even when we ran into some unexpected traffic jams due to parades, Peter made it very educational and enjoyable and manged to get us to all the sights we wanted to see even though he wound up spending and additional hour or two to get us to see everything. Our second tour was Stonehenge/Bath Tour. Again Peter picked us up at our hotel and showed us these beautiful sites all while entertaining us with their amazing history and fun filled facts. Peter always picked enjoyable pubs to visit on our travels and we loved taking in the local delicacies. We would highly recommend Peter West to help you get the most out of your visit to London.

Yesterday we spent the whole day with Peter and saw the main historic sites of London...this is the BEST way to see London! Peter is super knowledgeable, knows where to be when for the best pictures and experiences, and makes the day fun. We got the best view of the changing of the guard, lots of historical insight on the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and the areas of London, and some good laughs to boot. I have two teenage kids who LOVED the tour (and they are picky sightseers), I cannot recommend Peter enough!

After spending hours on the internet researching different types of "day tours" in London, I knew I needed to look beyond the advertisements for the "big companies" with the 14-hour day, bus-filled, wait-in-long-lines, overly crowded, totally structured tours. At that time, I found Peter West, and my trip plans became easier in a flash. I e-mailed Peter the date that would work out best for my family and explained that we didn't want to leave at 6 in the morning and stay out until 9 pm. I mentioned that we would like to see Stonehenge and Windsor Castle, and he contacted me within a few hours, giving me a couple of options along with an itinerary and pricing information. I immediately booked my tour and felt immediate relief. The day of our tour, Peter picked the 6 of us up at our hotel and we were more than comfortable in his Mercedes touring van. He made the day absolutely perfect by sharing his knowledge, humor and personality with all of us. In addition, we were able to see everything we wanted to in a timely manner, and even had time for a quick lunch and extra photo taking. There is no way that our sightseeing day in London would have been so organized and fun without Peter. Thank you for some great memories, Peter! We will be in touch again for our next trip!!! Thank you also for all the wonderful photos you took of us :)

As a repeat customer for our second year, Peter again did a great job of leading our group of 6 in his new luxurious Mercedes Van for an 8 hour excursion to Leeds castle. Seemed to never be a dull moment. His engaging general conversation and endless knowledge of detailed England history made it seem like we were catching up with family and taking a history class at the same time. We were fortunate to hit the castle on the last day of its Medieval Festival which was quite an added treat.

We just returned from London and our two days with Peter were wonderful. He was prompt, enjoyable, full of knowledge and so very accomadating.

We did the full day city tour and had a fabulous tour of Westerminister Abby followed by the changing of the Guard. Peter knew just where to take us so we had the best view and when one of our group had issues with walking he changed things up so we all enjoyed the sights.

The other tour was a day in the country seeing Windson Castle and Hampton court. Peter points out many details that you would probably miss. We all enjoyed his company and he never seemed to tire of our questions. Peter West really made our trip, I can not recommend him highly enough

Peter West looked after us for a week during which time he took us to Cambridge, Duxford, Northampton, London, Salisbury, Bath, Stratford upon Avon, Woodstock and Oxford. We visited Buckingham Palace, Hampton Court, Windsor Castle, Highclere Castle, Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge, Shakespeare's House, Blenheim Place, the universities at Cambridge and Oxford, the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, etc and the information and detail provided by Peter was nothing short of superb. He kindled my interest in a number of things we saw, particularly Henry VIII and Sir Winston Churchill and since returning home to Australia I have ordered a number of books on these subjects.

There is no way we could have achieved what we did without Peter and highly recommend him for anyone visiting the UK who wants to gain the most from their visit and not have to worry about the driving and/or parking. His selection of the places for lunch was great and gave us a great feeling for the English countryside as well as the scenic places along the way. The only thing I would do differently would be to split the tour into two parts with a couple of days off in between.

Peter West is among the best. We have travelled to more than 25 countries and experienced scores of tour guides. Peter is among the best - on time, delivers what is asked for, and extremely knowledgable.
I picked Peter from his web site to take my wife for a Downton Abbey experience on her birthday in March. He admitted that he was not familiar with Downton Abbey, the TV production, but would do his best to make the day meaningful. That he did! We toured a bit of London enroute to Bamford, where most of the outside scenes are shot. Then across the country to Byfleet Manor where we enjoyed tea with the owner. In the TV show this is the home of the Lady Violette (Maggie Smith). We also stopped at Hampton Court for a brief visit. All in all the day was outstanding, one my wife and I will remember for many birthdays to come.

Four friends and I booked Peter West to take us on a tour in early February. We had a very full day (probably 14 hours) and went to Windsor Castle, Bath, and a brief stop at Stonehenge.Peter's knowledge of each of the historic sites and a myriad of places along the way was astounding. He is a very pleasant man to talk with. If we had any questions, he knew the answers and generally that led to other conversations. He was very low pressure about the schedule and constantly kept us apprised of any time or distance challenges we faced, leaving the choices in our hands. This flexibility was very appreciated as one of the people in our group had a medical issue which had some affect on our schedule. His vehicle, a reasonably sized Mercedes van easily accommodated the 5 adults in our group , was very comfortable and offered good views of road side attractions. That's important since we spent quite some time traveling between venues (London-Windsor/Eaton-Stonehenge- Bath-London). I highly recommend Peter for anyone wishing to have a great tour experience.

In early February, my wife, another couple, and a friend booked Peter for a day to tour Bath and Windsor. We enjoyed it very much and it was great to hear Peter's take on the history of Bath, Windsor, and whatever else we passed by or had a question about. He was very eager to accommodate our needs and better yet he worked in a side trip on the fly. I enjoyed hearing about the local "politics" involved in the administering the heritage sites and tour industry and I'll remain coy regarding the side trip but let's just say Peter knows his way around the history of England and gave us a day that was more than we asked for. If you have the time and want to see London and sites beyond with someone who knows the place and is very willing to share his knowledge and perspective about so much history then your time and investment in a day with Peter will be well spent.

While staying in London for a week, my family of four (including 2 teenagers) wanted to get out of the city for a day. I found Peter West on Trip Advisor and decided to book with him after reading all the great reviews. He did NOT disappoint! Booking was easy and email confirmation was prompt.
He picked us up (15 minutes early, I might add) at our central London hotel for a full day tour to Stonehenge and Bath. His Mercedes van provided a comfortable journey for the whole family. Peter was friendly and chatty with us regardless of what "dumb" American questions we asked and he filled us in on the history of Stonehenge as we traveled. His knowledge of England's history surpassed many of my university professors! He even made an unplanned stop at a roadside McDonalds for the teenagers in tow who were hankering for a Sausage McMuffin!!
After Stonehenge, we stopped at a great old Inn for lunch. The building, grounds and countryside were breathtaking! That was a place we would have NEVER found on our own, but Peter knew right where it was and even seemed to know the folks working inside. (He made fast friends with the owner's dog, Dudley too!)
The next destination was Bath... But first Peter made an extra potty stop for us... Thanks to all those beers enjoyed at the Inn during lunch. Seeing The Roman baths with Peter was better than any "audio guide" they offered. He offered his knowledge and insight throughout the experience. The town of Bath was beautiful... I only wish we'd had more time there. Next time I visit England, I'll spend a few days there.
Peter had us back in central London on time- he even dropped us off at the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner instead of back to the hotel (again, two teenage boys were "starving" at that point!) All in all, it was a wonderful tour and I recommend Peter to anyone who wants an experienced guide in or around England. He will not disappoint!!

Last month (July 2013) my wife and I hired Peter for a day's tour of London. Due to my wife's medical condition, including being unable to walk, such events present special challenges and require flexibility on the part of the tour operator. Peter was very accommodating and cheerfully changed plans in order to avoid any walking whatsoever. For example, although he had originally planned to take us to the grounds of Buckingham Palace within a short walk of where the changing of the guard could be seen and would have had us stand in the crowd, he managed instead to time his driving to pass by the Royal Welsh Guard just as they were leaving their drill hall and marching to the Palace. We had a perfect view from within the comfort of the vehicle. Being a history buff, I enjoyed Peter's running commentary on all the sites of interest to me as we passed by, their origin and historical significance. In this respect, two highlights were: first, chatting with an older gentleman on an obscure side street, as he pointed out a medieval wall in his garden which had been the kitchen of Henry VIII, and second, browsing around Tower Hill (and the Tower of London). Peter was personable, knowledgeable, witty and helpful. I would highly recommend him if you are interested in seeing London and only have a day to do it in. Reagan Walker, Ottawa, Canada

Here we are in Southampton at the end of our three days with Peter--and he is still telling us where to go! Last year my husband and I had Peter for one day to show us Dover and Canterbury. This year we went from two to five people and from one day to three. Our time was very limited. We had to see all we could see of London and get to Southampton in time for reception and tour of floating classroom our granddaughter, the precious blonde under Peter's arm, would be on for a Semester at Sea. It was the Queen's birthday party so in addition to all the other wonders of London, Peter wanted us to see as much as we could of the festivities. We literally ran to get in position for the honor guard parade, or maybe that was the showing of the colors! But Peter got us there. He got us everywhere! And we loved every minute. I am sure all Blue Badge Guides are good. Their training is rigorous, their reputations above reproach; but there is only ONE Peter, and he was ours. If you are really, really, lucky and make your plans well in advance, he might be yours too. As you can tell he is "head and shoulders" above the rest.(I know, Peter, I should be ashamed of myself.)

My nephew and I had tickets to watch an NBA basketball game at the O2 and my mom and sister had decided to tag along on the trip. I had been to London before, but the others had not. I gave Peter a pretty tall order, essentially to keep four people of varying ages (16-81) with varying interests and energy levels entertained for 3 days. Suffice it to say, Peter succeeded far beyond my hopes. We all had an absolutely fabulous time. Based on some general ideas that I had given him, he put together an itinerary focused on London's most important historical sights, coupled with fun elements. We spent two full days touring through London with Peter guiding us through Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London and the Cabinet War Rooms. We also saw the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, Trafalgar Square and just about every other notable London attraction. We spent our third day visiting Windsor Castle, Eton and Hampton Court. Along the way, Peter provided expert commentary, peppered with interesting tidbits and often hilarious asides. He also picked the best pubs for lunch -- very nice places with lots of British character and delicious food. I should note that he did all of this while negotiating a January snow spell. We liked Peter so much that we will certainly look to him on our next trip to Britain -- perhaps, one based on visits to the Cotswolds, Stonehenge & Bath.

A group of us traveled to London from the US. Mr. Peter West was a great choice to see Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Bath.

It was easy to communicate (via email) and book the trip. He picked us up promptly at the arranged time outside our accommodations in London in a nice, comfortable van. He was prepared at each destination with the ways to manage the crowds and maximize our experiences. He is full of history and knowledge that greatly added to every experience.

Be warned, most of us fell asleep on the way back from Bath after the long day in the long car ride.

"Great tours with Peter"
Reviewed 4 January 2013
We just arrived home from London and we completed two tours with Peter. The tours included a full day in London and a half day at Hampton Court. Peter is a true professional and he is genuinley excited and proud to share the history of his country. My family, including kids aged 19, 17 and 11, loved our time with Peter and his tours were the highlight of our trip. Peter was at our hotel as scheduled ready to go and the tours were non-stop with facts and fantastic sights. While the tours were very educational, there were also plenty of laughs in a very relaxed and fun atmosphere. When we return to London a top priority will be to plan another day with Peter and he has our recommendation and gratitude.

Fun. Peter is just a very good, knowledgeable, efficient, professional guide. It is how he makes his living, and he is very good at it. Want a guide? Hire Peter!

We just returned from London where we had a chance to spend 2 days with Peter West as our guide. Our first day was spent walking around or taking the tube and bus around London. While it was alot of walking, this was an excellent way to see the City and you avoided all the of traffic issues you might find in a car. Peter was on time, clearly knew his way around and was a whiz at knowing every date of every monarch, a real chronological historian. He also knew good places to eat, which were reasonably priced and very good. Our second day was really where Peter's uniqueness could be seen. He built a customized Stonehenge, Oxford (Harry Potter highlights only) and Warwick Castle day for us that I just could not find elsewhere. He had the experience and stamina to get this all done in one day, albeit a long 12 hour one, which made for very efficient, enjoyable sightseeing and learning for our group of 5 experienced, energetic and efficient travellers - 3 adults and 2 children (10 and 13). He even managed an additional quick stop at Stratford Upon Avon for a evening stroll. On the second day in addition to learning about the sites we visited, we really learned about how people today live and we were able to discuss the contrast across different cultures with Peter easily. Peter put our safety first at all times and his van was very clean and comfortable. We very much enjoyed our time in London and are so grateful that we found Peter to make our experience more educational and complete.

We had the absolute pleasure of spending a very full 14 hour day with Peter at the end of June. Our group consisted of my wife and myself plus our 3 adult kids (in there 20's). On our trip we visited Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford - which is likely more than anyone should attempt in one day but Peter was up to the task and made the day very special for all of us. His knowledge of all the sites visited, especially Windsor Castle where he knows everyone and everything about it's history, it's treasures and what you really need to see is incredible. Peter's ability to navigate a very crowded site in order to give us the best possible tour with every detail one could desire and at the same time knowing how to go from area to area to avoid long lines made our visit spectacular and one we will never forget. Then on to Stonehenge where he helped us understand the site and what it took to create it 5,000 years ago. We learned a great deal that never would have been possible had we attempted to see it on our own. Finally we went to Oxford (only because I had requested it and now realize it was too much for one day). Despite the fact we got there after things had mostly shut down we got a great tour of Oxford and its famous sites from Peter with details about Christ Church and the city and campuses of the University. We were in the car for almost 6 hours of the day, but those hours consisted of many strories and details of the history of London and England along with some napping and one on one conversation between members of our family and Peter. All I can say is if you are in London and want the best tour possible from a wonderful person with unbelievable knowledge CALL PETER NOW.
Finally after our 14 hour day and at now 11 PM London time our daughter realized she had lost her camera with all the pictures from our tour. We looked everywhere and finally I called Peter to see if he could check if it was in his car. He had to get out of bed, walk 2 blocks to his car and search on hands and knees under seats and he found the camera stuffed between the front seats and then arranged to meet us before his scheduled tour the following day to return it.
This final act is certainly a sign of the integrity of Peter and his desire to make every detail and every tour special for that particular group. Peter, thank you for a great day and we hope to get to tour again with you soon.

We were initially worried if the children would appreciate looking at churches and castle but Peter's knowledge of history and his ability to tell it as a story keep us all interested. Our children were engaged and I was very happy that they were very comfortable asking Peter questions. On our second day, we toured warwick castle and stratford upon Avon. Unfortunately, it rained the whole day. Most of the outdoor activities in Warwick castle were cancelled like the jousting, archery and birds of prey. But we still made the best use of the day touring the inside of castle and whenever necessary, Peter was able to provide additional information regarding the history and personalities who lived in Warwick castle before. Stratford was very interesting beyong that it was the birth place of Shakespear. It gave an insight in the common lives of people who lived at that time. Peter was able to show us several properties despite the rain. As we rode the van back to London, everyone was pleasantly tired.

My friend and I arrived in London for only one day and have never set foot in London so it was crucial that we, 2 women, find someone to drive us around and show us the sites in as little time as possible.

First of all I would never want to drive in the city with all the different barriers and detours due to the upcoming Olympics but Peter effortlessly drove us around in his Mercedes 4x4. We are from a tiny rural community in the States so not having the stress of worrying how to get around made this a definite must for us. We desired to see Buckingham Palace and got there in time to see the changing of the guard and Peter led us around to the best vantage point to see. I discovered that my batteries had died in my camera so Peter brought his ipad with him to take pictures for us during our whole tour. Peter safely guided us through crowds, traffic and protesters and we felt completely safe in his company. He simply amazed us with his unlimited knowledge of the history of the area and his wit and humor! He was simply delightful! We could stop any time we needed and went at our pace to enjoy each stop we had requested. I will never settle for anything less and will certainly request Peter again the next time we visit London.
