Similar to other reviewers, my husband and I had a 9 hour layover at Gatwick Airport. I contacted Michael and we were in luck as he had availability to spend a Friday showing us his lovely corner of the world in southern England. Our flight was delayed about an hour in arriving to Gatwick, but once we landed and walked... More

We were stuck for a day near the Gatwick Airport waiting for our evening flight to US. We were picked up by Micheal Osborne at our BNB and he drove us around "his" Southern England: Horley, Lingfield, Hartfield, Landerhurst and other country towns we had never heard of. We learned of many historical, architectural, agricultural, and commercial aspects of this... More

We had too much time to hang around the airport and not enough time to take the train to downtown London. After some research I came upon Michael and Unique British Day Tour. Very glad we did. He picked us up right at Gatwick airport. Look for the yellow balloon. Much easier than looking for someone holding a sign! He... More

Took an informative and fun driving tour of rural southern England during a 9 hour layover at Gatwick. Michael took us places we never would have seen otherwise, including churches, ruins, and tiny country roads with beautiful views. He even treated us to lunch at a lovely, warm, historic pub! He was also thoughtful enough to bring crayons and paper... More

After finding Unique British Tours on trip advisor, my husband & I booked an English countryside tour with Michael Osborne. We had the best time!!! Michael is fun & energetic & his knowledge of local history is unsurpassed. Michael speakers a bit of many languages & dialects & kept us entertained the entire day. He's a pretty good singer too....

We had the privilege of spending the day with Michael in late May, and were treated to the most wonderful experience that anyone could hope for. We were fascinated by the history and places that Michael shared with us, and his knowledge is encyclopedic... not in a dull professorial way, but rather, in an engaging, high spirited, way, full of...

(note that this review is in regard to Unique British Tours, not specifically the day-tours; ours was 8 wonderful days!) We booked our honeymoon in the UK through Unique British Tours.

Michael turned a potentially uneventful 9 hour layover at Gatwick Airport into one of the highlights of my entire European trip! I am still telling friends and family about my unique tour through Britain's pastoral countryside and quaint villages with Michael, "the eccentric historian." I highly recommend you join him one day to experience his company. :-)
