Wow! We had the most fabulous day with Imogen! Context has always been terrific (we took two Context tours in Paris in 2018), and this tour was a perfect way to start off our vacation. We wanted to do this on our first full day in London, but as it was a Saturday, Westminster Abbey wasn't possible. So Context worked with us to create an ideal itinerary which started at the Tower of London and finished with the Churchill War Rooms. From the first moment, Imogen was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. She helped us get our Oyster cards for the tube, and made sure our history-buff 14-year-old was engaged the whole time. Throughout the day, she gave us options in terms of our itinerary (walk or take the bus? Where should we have lunch?) She was so interesting and enthusiastic, and we really enjoyed spending the day with her. It set us up for a tremendous week in London. Thank you, Imogen!
Our guide Phillipa was excellent! She is very personable, very knowledgeable and FUN. She definitely knows British history. We visited some lesser-known places one would never think of on their own. She not only provided a great tour, but she recommended additional activities for us during our stay in London. Among other things, she suggested Kew Gardens, which was fantastic. She also provided information regarding using the "Tube" which saved us money. Phillipa seemed genuinely concerned about our enjoyment, comfort and interests. We cannot say enough good things about her! If possible, book your London tour with Phillipa. You won't be disappointed.
Sarah began the day asking what we were interested in and getting a sense of our knowledge of English history, so she could calibrate our discussion and convey information that was interesting to us. She timed all of our visits perfectly and demonstrated deep knowledge of subjects. She is friendly and eloquent. We had a fantastic time during the tour.
