Testimonials

  • Joanna - bespoke itinerary for her Mum's special birthday, with a Downton Abbey theme!
  • Lucy Parsons, Education Coach used our Shakespeare travel guide for days out to Stratford upon Avon
  • Emma - bespoke trip to Portsmouth
  • Mike Woodward - bought a bespoke trip itinerary to Bath as a gift for his parent's wedding anniversary
  • Joanna - bespoke itinerary for her Mum's special birthday, with a Downton Abbey theme!

    I approached Philippa at British History Tours to compile an itinerary for a day out at Downton Abbey. It was my mums 65th Birthday and I wanted to give her an experience which she would totally love and would remember. I hadn't got a clue where to look for tickets and I had heard the abbey was only open for a limited timescale per year. I wanted to embrace as much to do with Downton Abbey as possible so the added extras of the towns which housed the other key settings was just superb! I was really pleased with the speed and knowledge I received in the itinerary. I found the distance between each setting really useful plus the recommendations for eats etc. I couldn't wait to present it to mum on her birthday! I'd totally recommend the services of British History Tours if you like me; are looking for a special day out and want as much information to make that event as enjoyable / seamless as possible.
  • Lucy Parsons, Education Coach used our Shakespeare travel guide for days out to Stratford upon Avon

    I used British History Tours' guide to Shakespeare's Stratford for a day out in July 2016. It was great to have the guide before the visit to learn more about where we were going and plan the visit. It enabled us to choose the sites we were most interested in seeing and primed us for looking at the things we did choose to see. It was incredibly useful to have all the ticketing information in advance and we were able to save 10% on ticket prices because of the prompts. We will be visiting Stratford again over the next 12 months to see the things we didn't see.
  • Emma - bespoke trip to Portsmouth

    I have a busy job with little spare time and I wanted something special for Graham's [husband] birthday. I was under pressure and I wanted someone who could get it right first time. As soon as I committed and we started the process I knew I had made the right choice. Philippa knew exactly what I was looking for, even when I didn't. When I received the itinerary I was really pleased, especially when I read through it and saw Graham's face. Graham is incredibly to buy for and almost impossible to surprise! British History Tours are incredibly professional.
  • Mike Woodward - bought a bespoke trip itinerary to Bath as a gift for his parent's wedding anniversary

    Thank you Philippa for a full and very detailed itinary. After being unsure of a gift for my Dad's birthday, I asked British History Tours what they could suggest for a weekend in Bath. They produced a beautiful gift that was full of great places to visit and things to see that I would not have thought of without this. Thanks again Philippa and I'll be asking for your assistance in the future. Mike
