An amazing 4 day tour! - Sue
Our 4 days with Nick was more than we had hoped for. Nick’s knowledge of the details of everything we saw was impressive; a master of history. York then to beautiful Whitby via the very charming Goathland. Nick is a master at securing tables! Then to the Lake District, via Haworth; where he connected us with a very charming colleague on the Bronte heritage. Nick knows exactly where to go and when to be at the very best places in the Lake District. His inside knowledge of the Peak District is remarkable too! Nick did an outstanding job of guiding us to the best nooks and crannies of England. There are so many very special things you see when you travel with Nick. And then there is Nick Smith himself. He is as interesting and accomplished a person as any you will meet. We feel incredibly fortunate to have had him as a guide and to be able to spend the time we did.
UK with the best tour guide - Chris & Lin, Chicago
We spent five days with one the best and most sensational guides you could ever imagine. He is extremely knowledgeable and designed an amazing itinerary for us to explore a section of Great Britain. As you travel with him you soon realize that he has a wonderful wit and a remarkable knowledge of the history of Great Britain. He shares this information with such skill and enthusiasm that you become immersed in his accounts of these past events. You consistently feel comfortable with Nick because he has an attention to detail that makes you acutely aware that you don't have to worry because Nick has it covered, and he does!!! He has a kind nature, adapts to any situation and at all times he is thinking of you and your best interest as his first priority. His motto is that you are “on vacation” and he is going to make sure that he does everything possible to help you enjoy your holiday. As you are planning your trip to find that tour guide who will make your trip memorable and worry free, you should contact Nick Smith.

Outstanding! - Elizabeth, London.
We used Nick to take us on a multi-day tour of the Lake District and Yorkshire. His knowledge of the areas were impressive and the way he imparted it very engaging. He was personable and professional, anticipated our every need, and was a pleasure to spend time with. He showed us not only major sites but also found ones off the beaten path that gave us a much better sense of the culture and beauty of the areas we visited. We couldn’t have had the wonderful experience we did without Nick’s expert guidance.
