What a wonderful service in Kent with Amanda Hutchinson. We had a brilliant time – she is a gem. Thank you! BrianS New York City July 2015

Amanda is a wonderful guide who will become your friend in no time. Her knowledge will supplement your day whether you are a neophyte or an unabashed Anglophile. There's no need to spend hours figuring logistics when she can easily customize you day's activities. Two huge thumbs up for this tour. JD USA June 2015

Amanda was the best. Very knowledgeable and a lot of fun to be with. She covered every detail of our 2 days of touring making it seamless and effortless. It was like touring with a good friend as she was easy to be with. We really had a tremendous time with her! TR USA June 2015

Amanda was an excellent tour guide for our whirlwind one-day tour of London. She took us to the major sights and explained their significance while keeping it interesting. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a tour of London.DD USA May 2015

Dawn was a great guide, knowledgeable, interesting and fun to tour with. I would recommend her highly. We were a group ranging in age from 8 to 82 and she was able to keep us all interested! MH  USA Mar 2015

Dawn is a delightful, knowledgeable tour guide. Her vast depth of knowledge of all things London is a central aspect of her success as a tour guide. She is punctual, friendly and personal in her approach. Our day with her was the best! B&ML USA Mar 2015

I want to thank-you for the time and knowledge you shared with L. and me on our recent visit to London. We learned so much during our short time in your wonderful city……. Thank-you again for sharing your extensive knowledge with us and being so fun and friendly at the same time. I have a few friends hoping to visit London in the next year or two and I will definitely pass along your name. C & L V. USA Jan 2015

On behalf of “Team Brown” we would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your time on Saturday and the outstanding commentary/perspective that you provided with great passion and understanding, we really enjoyed your company and all agreed we could have carried on till midnight…….GB Eng Dec 2014

Dawn was everything we hoped for in a guide. She accommodated our son’s inquisitive nature and passion for history and was able to answer all of his questions while still keeping the rest of us engaged. She was a pleasure to be around and easy to spend the day with. She has a great command of the city and its incredible history. We highly recommend her. KC USA Nov 2014

Amanda is one of the best, if not the best, tour guides we have had the pleasure to work with. She knew our desires and wants before we could communicate them. She planned the tour so that we never wasted any time or any steps. We highly recommend Amanda to anyone wishing a tour guide for London and surronding areas. We will also most certainly book Amanda for our next London trip. RC USA Oct 2014

Dawn showed us a wonderful time in London, it was a terrific tour. She shared all of the sites with us and also made certain to share background and information we would not have otherwise known. One of the best visits we have ever had. ML USA Sept 2014

Thank you so much Amanda, my day in London with you was memorable, rain and all, really enjoyed it. I will certainly be going home with some great memories. J-A G, Australia Sept 2014

Thank you so much for your contribution to our day. Everyone was impressed with your guiding and on a personal note, my reputation as an organiser relies on those involved in the activities of the day! You didn’t disappoint!! MA International Police Association Aug 2014

Wonderful day exploring London with Amanda, very knowledgable and pleasant to be with. We had great communication before the trip which helped a lot in choosing what we would do. The flexibility along the way was as important to us as the preplanning as we had limited time in the city. Grandmother, daughter and grandson on his special trip from USA July 2014

Dear Amanda – as I wrap things up for this trip, and reflect about the wonders I’ve seen over the past 38 days, our four days of exploration around Kent and Sussex qualify (once again) as the richest and most informative of all those great days. NQ, USA June 2014

We would give Dawn 6 out of 5 if it was an option! Funny, warm, intelligent and engaging – the day with Dawn could not have been any more perfect. We saw so many wonderful things and Dawn had information about everything!! My wife and I are so grateful to have met her and experienced London as first timers with her. Thank you Dawn for such a wonderful and memorable day! Matt and Inna R. USA May 2014

Dawn was fantastic. We learned a great deal from her and had the chance to see sights that we never would have had the opportunity to see on our own. Dawn met us right off the train platform for our convenience. We toured Dover Castle, the Operation Dynamo exhibit under the cliffs, Walmer Castle, and had a great lunch at a local pub. I left the tour wishing I booked two days instead of one. HS USA May 2014

If you need a guide to London monuments, to English history, to British governance, to English literature, to the people of London then Dawn Blee is your ticket. Especially, if you want a blend of a quick wit and charm to boot. Her flexibility and sense of timing were added features to make the tour a meaningful experience.RF Hawaii Nov 2013

We had a delightful day with Dawn! She is so very, very interesting and this is the best tour ever to take from the cruise ship in Dover to London. We didn’t have to worry about our luggage or the drive, thanks to our absolutely wonderful driver Steve. With so much available to see and do, these are the people you want to be with. Thank you so much for a terrific time. We really enjoyed ourselves and we’re so thankful that we had this opportunity. You made it a grand one! BJ USA

My head is stuffed-to-bursting with all I’ve seen during this trip; I’ll certainly be kept busy for the entire winter, writing new travel articles. Again, Great Thanks Amanda for devising a Perfect Week for me. NQ USA August 2013

Dawn, we loved, loved, loved our tour of Canterbury, Dover, Sandwich, etc. You are so very good at what you do – we learned so much from you and thoroughly enjoyed your history/story-telling. What a great day it was! A&JH TX USA Jul 2013

Amanda – thank you so much for the best day!!! It was so fantastic!!!! Come to Dallas so I can reciprocate!!! NN, Texas July 2013

We have returned home now from our marvelous month long trip to England and Scotland. We had a terrific time and the British Open golf tournament was a great finale. We wanted you to know that our five days with you was one of the true highlights of our trip. We greatly appreciated your knowledge and familiarity with London and the surrounding area. We also appreciated the wonderful, caring way in which you guide. Thank you Amanda for the many special moments that you provided for us. WN, Ohio July 2013

Just to say how much I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of The National Gallery yesterday – I thought our guide Amanda was superb and pitched it perfectly. I also enjoyed standing in Trafalgar Square in the snow – very picturesque! Thank you for co-ordinating this excellent event. Julia R, Kent March 2013″Dawn was wonderful and very accommodating! I would highly recommend her tours in and around London!” MK. – Jun, 2013

The four hours we spent with Dawn and her driver, Stephen, were wonderful. Dawn is extremely knowledgeable and has a pleasant personality. I am extremely interested in the historical aspects of the places we visited. She provided much validation and more insight into what we were seeing. Just what we were looking for. SE, USA July 2012

Thank you for helping to make our day at Titsey one to remember. Everybody enjoyed the guided talks around the house and found it very interesting. It does make our job as organisers much easier when the guides are so good and so organised. JH, Reading June 2012

You were superb, I’m a NADFAS member and I know a good speaker when I hear one! NADFAS Member Horsham

We had a great day, thank you. Your voice is so easy to listen to. HB, Coach tour client

We love your English sense of humour. CJ, USA

How did you manage to do all that research in so little time? We have learnt so much about our family’s past and you have brought it all to life. We can’t wait to tell the rest of the family back at home. You made it a wonderful day to remember. WB-C, Personal Heritage client USA

Thank you for being our guide. We enjoyed not only your knowledge but your sense of humour. We are also impressed by the thought and planning that went into our trips given J’s mobility problems. JB & L, USA

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising such a fascinating and varied outing – it brought Cranbrook alive for us. EC, Kent

Thank you so much for organising such an interesting trip to Cranbrook today. I very much enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Perhaps further ones could be organised for the surrounding villages! PL, Kent

We’ve lived in the area for nearly 20 years but we had no idea there was so much history here. CJ, Kent
