Augusta Harris was wonderful. She met us at our hotel, was early, and started our day by talking through with us what we wanted to do.

We started at Westminster Abbey, which we had planned to see the day prior but ran out of time. Her knowledge and stories made the experience very enjoyable.

We stopped for tea before heading to the clipper for a ride on The Thames River.
During our quick boat ride we heard about the buildings along the river. A local sitting near her thanked her for her stories.

At the Tower of London we saw the Crown Jewels, the display of armor and grabbed a quick snack.

We then took the tube to St Paul’s Cathedral.

Augusta dropped us back at our hotel on time. She made the time very enjoyable and adjusted our pace to meet our energy level.

We have used Context tours in many countries and for over a dozen different tours. They have all been fantastic. The docents are very knowledgeable and the small groups make asking questions and tailoring the talk to individual needs really easy. We have gotten so much out of the tours and our discussions with the docents. We have also gotten to see some sights we wouldn’t have otherwise seen because the docents are so knowledgeable and know the areas and the sights so well. We won’t use any other tour company anymore!

Imogen was great. It was brutally cold but we are a hearty bunch and Imogen’s enthusiasm made it all worth it. Our kids (10 year old triplets) love a good story about “head choppin” and Imogen knew how to keep them going. The kids said afterwards we loved the tour but we really loved our guide.

We did 2 Context tours in 1 day, it was me, my 9 year old, and our babysitter (who came with us on a work trip). I wanted to do something engaging for my daughter, so she wasn't bored but so we could still tour historic sites in London. We did the Tower and Kensington Palace, with Jess and Augusta, respectively. They were both wonderful! We learned so much -- it was a splurge but totally worth it and my daughter is still talking about Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII and Queen Victoria, The guides were both so great, totally knowledgeable and really made it relevant for a 9 year old. Would do it again in heartbeat!!
