I am a seasoned international traveler, but this was to be my 10 year old daughter's first trip overseas. As I was planning what we were going to do, I worried about logistics and her getting over tired. I also wanted her to learn something, and was concerned that most tours would be over her head. Then I read about Nicola. I sent her an email with my objectives and concerns and I knew the minute that I read her reply that she would be perfect. And perfect she was. She is very knowledgeable, easy going, fun to be around and she was able to engage my daughter in the history of the places that we went. My daughter learned so much that when we got home, she wanted to order the cards of the various Kings and Queens that Nicola had used as she walked us around the Tower of London. We did a full day tour with her, and then she gave us some wonderful suggestions for the following day. My daughter's only disappointment was that Nicola was not coming with us the next day! Nicola feels like an old friend, and we will certainly contact her again when we go back to London in the future.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write. And yes, we had a wonderful day together. Such a pleasure to meet you both and be able to spend time with you. I imagine your daughter went back to school and was able to impress all her friends with her new knowledge of London, history and our kings and queens! See you next time :)

In the end of April 2019 my wife and I took a full day with Nicola Watts on a private tour that I have come to call “The London Adventurers of the Massachusetts Bay Company” I had two specific 17th century interests for the tour which I communicated to Nicola ahead of our visit: to explore the antecedents of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the origins of coffeehouse culture in London City. She perfectly met both of them with the tour.
We started the day with a visit to the Inner Temple, the site of legal training and practice of Governor John Winthrop, his brother-in-law Emmanuel Downing, and many of the other “adventurers,” (i.e. merchants who became stockholders) in the Massachusetts Bay Company. Winding our way through the streets of the City, we learned about its rising trading culture in the 17th century. As we made our way to the Guildhall where many of the adventurers held government positions, Nicola artfully explained the arcane structure of liveries and freemen in the City, the elements of which were brought to New England by the adventurers. We would return to the Guildhall after lunch but first toured through the many quaint lanes and alleys of the City. It was here that we experienced the beginnings of coffeehouses’ Lloyd’s, Jonathan’s, Garraway’s, and St. Michael’s market site, where Pasqua Rosee began selling the thick dark liquid in 1652. We topped that experience with a wonderful lunch at Simpson’s. It was Thursday and so we were able to take sit in on the Court of Common Councilmen at the Guildhall. Nicola gained us access to the otherwise restricted proceedings. That day we experienced the governance of City business as it has been done for hundreds of years. Afterwards we continued our tour of the City, happening upon Swithen’s Lane where John Winthrop lived, and then visiting the Monument, All Hallows Church with its catacombs, the Martyr’s Park, and Samuel Pepys’ library and church. In between we managed to get to the top of the a few of the glass towers now dominating the City for a bird’s eye view of the 21st century city that helped generate the republican experiment in New England. A wonderful day.
Nicola, a blue badge guide, expertly narrated our tour, gained us access to sites that are not in the guidebooks, and expeditiously stewarded us through the winding, busy, and narrow byways of the City with cheer and aplomb. It may seem like we went to a lot of places, and we did, but her measured pace kept our attention and saved our energy. I am especially indebted to her for her painstaking research on a rather arcane subject.
After our tour with her of London’s Regency sites two years ago, we knew we would not be disappointed with this tour. And we were right! This was a tour for the ages and would not have been possible without Nicola’s expert guidance. Five Stars! We’re definitely going to be in touch with her again the next time we’re in London.

My husband and I arranged a full day tour with Nicola for The Tower and Westminster Abbey. She was everything you would want for a guide: extremely knowledgeable, professional and malleable. It wasn't just these two epic institutions that she imparted knowledge on but everything we saw around us as we made our way to the sites. But the greatest compliment of all (for us) is just how very pleasant Nicola is as a person. Patient and accommodating. She was just a joy to spend the day with. She understands intuitively your pace both physically and your capacity for taking in information. "Excellent" is the only rating that can apply. Claudia Stool

Unsure of what to see and do in London in a limited amount of time? Want someone to guide you who is intimately knowledgeable about all things London? Need someone who is patient, flexible and has a great sense of humor? Want to plan your trip so you avoid the long lines and maximize your time in London? Hire Nicola, you will not go wrong. We are a family of five (2 adults 3 children ages 13, 13 and 9) and we recently returned from a one-week visit to London. I researched many guides, and just felt like Nicola was the right fit. And thankfully I got it right. Nicola is a "Blue Badge" guide, an official designation that is respected the world over for excellence. I won't go into the details of how one becomes a Blue Badge guide, Nicola can do that for you, but touring London with a Blue Badge guide is an absolute must if you want to get the most out of your trip. Upon first meeting Nicola, it's like meeting an old friend (who happens to know everything about the history of London since 50 BC). :-) We did two half-day tours with Nicola, the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey, and her knowledge of the history of these historic sites is exceptional. Our curious kids peppered her with one question after another, and she took them all in with good humor, grace and great knowledge. She kept things moving along and interesting for our children, and kept my wife and I completely engaged also. I do believe she knows the history of every King and Queen and their full extended families since William the Conqueror! Contact Nicola ahead of time and make sure you ask her advice for planning your trip, she kept us from making mistakes and waiting in lines that were hundreds of people deep. She has special access privileges, and knows the ins and outs of how to optimize your time. You don't want to spend lots of money on the trip of a lifetime, only to get to London and spend hours in line. My only regret about our trip is we didn't do other tours with Nicola like the National Gallery, Parliament, the British Museum and other sites. However, she gave us wonderful insight into other London landmarks which really enhanced our trip. We're going back to London in the future, and the family unanimously voted to tour the rest of London with Nicola.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write. I know what it’s like returning from vacation and finding the time to even do the laundry. So putting time aside to write this is much appreciated. It was an absolute pleasure to take you and your family around the Tower and the Abbey. Your kids certainly kept me on my toes! And so glad that it sounds like I could keep everyone happy. Very much looking forward to your next visit. Already have a few things on the itinerary for you all.....

We toured the main London sites with Nicola for half a day, and she customized it to what my teenage girl scouts wanted to see. There were 11 of us total, and Nicola was very paitent and kept us engaged and excited. She was wonderful! Highly recommend a tour with this amazing lady.

Ms. Watts guided us through Westminster Abbey. We had 3 kids, and she was able to keep all 3 interested and entertained while imparting all kinds of historical facts. She was very patient with our difficult 8 year old. I would recommend her if you want your kids to get the most out of the historical sights in London.

I was a faculty member bringing 19 US University students to tour Parliament. We had asked for a guide with knowledge about BREXIT. Nicola did an outstanding job of discussing the Parliament and the political and judicial aspects of the Brexit legislation as it was occurring in mid-March, 2017.

Nicola guided my wife and I for a full day through the sites of Regency London. Her sound research yielded thoughtful selection of places to visit and helpful insights, making the era come alive for us. She expertly and efficiently guided through the city. We plan to be in touch for subsequent trips.

My husband and I were in London for a few days, and I'd never been there before. I had unrealistic expectations that I'd be able to figure out a good plan on how to see all the sights...and then realized how overwhelming it all was and how I didn't have the time to read a bunch of tour books and articles. My husband and I are not fans of big coach bus tours, and really wanted to have a more conversational experience.

I found Nicola just by searching online and contacted her the day before we wanted to tour. Very lucky for us, she was available! She responded very quickly, explained what we'd do, and offered a very reasonable price.

We met Nicola at the Big Ben, which was near our hotel in Waterloo. She walked us all around the area, explaining so many landmarks -- Parliament, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey just to name a few. She explained not just the purposes of the buildings, but how they fit into the royal history as well. We took the Tube with her and she showed us London Tower and then hopped on a double-decker to St. Paul's Cathedral.

I was truly amazing just how much ground we covered, mostly on foot, in a four-hour timespan. I would have thought we'd need a day or two or more to see that much!

Hiring Nicola was the best money we spent on the trip. Without those four hours, I would have left London feeling like we had missed a laundry list of sights.

She was also very kind in emailing us a follow-up with recommendations for how to budget our time the rest of the trip. Thanks to her recommendation, we got to see the Churchill War Rooms, which was amazing.

If you've never been to London before and you want to get a really thorough overview of the most important destinations, you've got to contact Nicola!

Thank you for finding the time to write up so much detail about your afternoon spent with me. Am very pleased that it hit the spot for you and we managed to get through so much on your laundry list - even though the wind was blowing extra hard down the Thames that day. It was a real pleasure to be able to share London with you both.

I was traveling thru London with my family of seven : ages 70,67,41,37,17,12,and 5. We had just one full day in London. We did a 3/4 of a day tour with Nicola. We actually booked a Half day but Nicola went above and beyond making it about 3/4 of the day. Nicola was extremely flexible with us. I needed as little walking as possible for mom and dad. She accommodated and moved at our pace. She maintained the attention of the entire group which has a huge difference in age. We had a great time and covered some of londons best sites. My entire family really liked her. She is very knowledgeable about the city and its history. In my opinion she is a great bargain. I could of never accomplished that much in one day nor would i have had the historical knowledge with it. Thanks Nicola !! 12.27.2016
