I can't rate this wonderful private tour and excellent guide with adequate superlatives. The day we spent with Gilly, our guide, will long be remembered by us. Not only was she intelligent and well-informed, but she was friendly, personable, and thoroughly pleasant to be with. We felt as if we were going with a friend, not a cicerone - she is the sort of delightful person we would invite to our home and she added immense pleasure to our day. We have had wonderful success with our Viator guides and will surely use their service again.
Our guide, Kevin, couldn't have been better. He was full of stories and information not only about Chartwell but other areas as well. Arrived punctually at our hotel and took us for an additional stop in London. Knowing we live part time in Texas he took us by a plaque commemorating the spot of the first official foreign office for Texas after it won its independence.
We had a wonderful experience with Kevin from Ye Olde England Tours! He made our trip to Chartwell one of the memorable days of our entire vacation. Vast knowledge of London and the local area, and a sense of what types of history and trivia we would like, helped us enjoy little treasures even beyond the day we spent with Kevin. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the area and the local history will always remind us of our wonderful day in Chartwell. We will certainly use this tour company again and will request Kevin. You should too!
I felt very comfortable with Richard. He was full of information and very easy to talk to! It was a wonderful day!
The tour was great. Gilly was a great guide and would do another tour with her any time. It was great personal service and very well worth what I spend. Value was actually beyond what I spend.
It was our first time booking with Viator and we were quite pleased with everything.
We spent our Sunday with a great guide Kevin, who picked up at our hotel at the requested time and drove us to Chartwell in his very comfortable car.
While driving up he pointed out to many interesting sites in London and he was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. We highly recommend Kevin and this tour.
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to London but unwilling to rent a car. My driver / guide Gilly picked me up at my hotel by Victoria Station and we had a fabulous day going to Chartwell on this tour. Gilly was very personable and knowledgeable about this former home of Winston Churchill. On the way to the estate, she told me about the areas we passed, and once we arrived she gave me all the time I needed to view the site, and acted as my private guide of the property. In each of the rooms you visit they have very knowledgeable volunteers who are always willing to answer any questions you have. It was a wonderful tour and I would highly recommend if you are interested in the Churchills and where they lived outside London. Ask for Gilly for an extra special experience!
Our driver was very prompt in picking us up at our Air B and B in central London.
He was friendly and polite and we enjoyed his narrative.
The tour was very interesting and we enjoyed the whole day. We would recommend
this tour to anyone who has an interest in Churchill. His property is lovely and we toured
the end of May when the flowers were in full bloom.
Driver on time and friendly. Thought driver would have more information on the site while touring there. Line long for lunch and hence had to skip, should have had more structure on timing at tour.
Enjoy a visit to the home of legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. Ye Olde England Tours were the first to offer a tour to Chartwell with a private guide/driver in a comfortable car and you will be whisked away from busy London with a short drive through the beautiful English countryside to Chartwell House in the county of Kent. See how Churchill left them and marvel at the gorgeous views that made him pick Chartwell as his family home and also some of the incredible paintings created by the great man himself.
Rarely can any man have been so talented, he being also a distinguished writer and notable historian as well as former soldier. No visitor to Great Britain should miss the home of perhaps one of the most famous leaders in world history as well as his glorious landscaped gardens.
