Amber is a well informed guide who provided much insight into the palace and the various sites along the road to the palace. She is high energy and really works to draw out the visitors and make sure they are informed, and their needs are being met. Amber took time to take photographs of each party at the entrance to the palace and again at tea. Amber gave us adequate time to tour the palace and did a fantastic job of meeting up with the guests after the interior tour. The walk to the hotel for tea was longer than expected. Amber informed us of this and the option of using a London cab was available. At the tea we were treated royally as Amber continued explaining the history of England's afternoon tea. Overall, a tour I would gladly do again, as there is so much to see at the palace. I would request Amber again as a tour guide for any attraction. She brings an energy and knowledge that is most appreciated.
You would pay extra to have Amber. What a lovely young lady, very, very knowledgeable, a pleasure to have her as a guide for our Churchill tour. Looked after safety of the group, lovely personality, humorous and even treated us to a song, all in keeping with the tour and a good singer too!!! You could tell she was very passionate about her work.
We had a two hour tour of Westminster with Amber this week which was fantastic! We ranged in age from 5 to 65 and everyone in our group of eight stayed interested and involved for the entire tour. Amber has great energy and tells historic tales through interactive stories and quirky facts. We all loved the tour and will rebook with her when we have more visitors to London later this year. I would not hesitate to recommend her!!
We met Amber at the Westminster Tube Station and enjoyed the next two hours walking around and learning a lot about the Westminster area. I've been to London several times and found Amber's knowledge and enthusiasm to be top notch. My 10, 9, and 4 year old were engaged and enjoyed the tour. I would highly recommend Amber's tour to anyone wanting and enjoyable and informative morning or afternoon.
Walk, Talk & Tea: Amber is quite knowledgable about the sites in central London - not only its history but the stories behind the history that made this tour so memorable and much more enjoyable than other tours. The tour ended with English Afternoon Tea where even more history and stories were shared. Amber is very personable and a great person to spend your afternoon with. Brava!

I loved this tour!! Amber was so knowledgeable and engaging that the time flew by. I highly recommend a tour even if you are a Londoner. We're lucky to live in such a fascinating city and we should all learn more about it!!

My friends and I spent a few days in London, and meeting up with Amber was one of the highlights of our trip! She is so fun and bubbly, has a wealth of information about the city, and is fabulous at navigating. Her themed tours are so fun and interesting-I can't wait to visit again!

Amber is definitely your gal if you want to go to Buckingham Palace - she's a fantastic teacher of British History and makes it easy to understand! Would love to do her Loo Walking Tour or Mary Poppins Tour (next time!)
I went on Amber the American Tour Guide's Bridget Jones walking tour, and it was probably the most fun I ever had on any walking tour! In addition to pointing out locations from the Bridget Jones books and films, Amber asked us Bridget Jones-related questions, told us a lot of fun background info and even gave us some of Bridget's favourite things (Milk Trays, instants, candy sticks as cigarettes). It was a truly wonderful afternoon and I encourage anyone who likes the Bridget Jones books and/or films to take the tour!

I'm sure you think that you like Mary Poppins -- you're considering going to Old London and taking a Mary Poppins tour - and I recommend that you do. Amber likes Mary Poppins more than you do. She knows the words to the songs, dresses like Mary, and weaves the history and architecture of Old London with the story of Mary Poppins - both the series of books, the author of those books, and the making of the Disney classic. People will notice that Mary Poppins is walking around, children will smile, and it's rather hard not to be noticed as you're skipping around the streets singing.
