I've been fortunate enough to guide some wonderful people in a variety of places. Some of them have also very sweetly told me how much they have enjoyed their tours. Here are a selection of their comments.
Alex made my experience in London unforgettable. I left there with amazing memories and even a new friend. Courtney Cheshire, USA
I can't think of anyone I'd rather have show me round town. Alex is fun, intelligent, easy to get on with, and has all the inside knowledge (and a great photographer too!) Miss her, miss out! Clare Jenkinson, London
Through rain or shine, Alex always has a magical smile in place. She has heaps of passion and enthusiasm that lead you to have a fun, knowledgeable tour, that leaves you craving to learn more. Fiona MacKillop, London
The best way to see London is with Alex Lacey as your guide! Dominique Messier, Canada
I have traveled overseas with Alex on two occasions with student groups and I am looking forward to our next trip with Alex at the helm. Whether it be tickets, hotel arrangements, transfers via motorcoach or train, or simply finding a quaint restaurant off the beaten path, Alex has always taken the opportunity to tailor our trips to our individual needs. A quality guide is organized, knowledgeable about the destinations to where they are traveling, energetic and fun. They also take time to become personable with, and get to know their clients. Alex does all of this plus much more. You will not be disappointed in allowing Alex to plan or lead your next holiday, or group tour. Timothy Amburgey, US
I attended one of Alex's tours at the National Portrait Gallery. I went into the gallery both uneducated and slightly lacking in interest in art in general. Alex's knowledge of the different pieces was extremely impressive, and she brought each piece to life through her engaging personable manner. I left the gallery with an unexpected enthusiasm to visit more galleries, which can only be attributed to Alex's thoroughly enjoyable tour. I would recommend her without any hesitation. Anne Bills, London
I had never visited either Westminster or Saint Paul’s cathedral and with Alex as our guide they came alive. Her knowledge was immense but for me it was the nuggets of historical oddities or one up-man-ship that she had unearthed that made the whole experience personal and enriching. Im only hoping I can do a few more as I feel my London has been rather 2D in comparison. Alex Macro, London
Alex was more than a guide on our tour - she was an educator with the world at her finger tips. Alex took the time at each location to explain its history with excitement and a level of knowledge that would draw my students in to what they were experiencing. Quite frankly, she made the history come alive. I will be traveling again this summer with my students, and have requested the tour company hire Alex so I can guarantee a top notch experience for my students. Bradley Schaffer-Ortiz, USA
Knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining, Alex has real affection for the historical figures and artefacts that populate her tours and has a gift for bringing our surroundings to life. I have learned far more from Alex's tours than I ever did from my school history teacher!"Alex very obviously loves her job and it is a pleasure to be guided by her around our amazing sights and museums. I always feel afterwards that I have been on a little holiday in my own city Caroline Clarke, London
You won't find a better guide in London, and I wouldn't want anyone else leading my tours. Alex is passionate about her city and is committed to ensuring her travelers experience every enjoyment it has to offer. Robie Day, USA
I have been on several of Alex's tours and have been amazed at her knowledge and professionalism. A truly insightful tour, which is well-paced and leaves you satisfied that you have seen and learned a great deal without being overwhelmed with information. With Alex you look beyond the apparent and see things most people would miss. Clare Constant, London
I have had Alex Lacey as a guide twice. On both occasions she went above and beyond all expectations. She is not only extremely knowledgable but inspiring, positive and inspiring. She made my students learn without even realizing it! They loved her. I will definitely be using Alex on my next trip! David Gibson, Canada,
On Aug 6th, my multigenerational family (from 2-74) all adored Alex Lacey. Alex took us to a fabulous lunch spot and she was wonderful and engaging during our extended time on the bus. Allen Family, USA and India, via British Tours,
I heard nothing but great feedback for you! You came across as competent, enthusiastic and pleasant guides so I am extremely happy. Thank you both for your amazing contribution! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. Dutch corporate group, via Kuoni Destination Management
Just a quick note to thank you ever so much for the tour you gave to our group on Friday. You saved the day. The lead teacher called this morning and said that you were brilliant so I just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation. Study Trips group, Belgium
I joined Alex on a London Walks tour of street art in Shoreditch - not a subject I had any previous knowledge of, but she really brought it to life. Over the two hours of the tour, she took our group around a dazzling variety of art, and filled our minds with fascinating facts about the works and their artists. She also threw in some bonus London history as we walked between the artworks, which I particularly appreciated! I'm not sure what was most impressive - the amount of knowledge she shared, or the fact that it was never overwhelming. Highly recommended - I can't wait for my next Alex tour! Emma Davidson, via London Walks
She was an amazing tour guide and always kept my group entertained. Joshua Schwimmer, USA
Bonjour Alex ! Tu as été une super guide. Nous avons passé un très bon week-end avec toi. C'était formidable ! Nous espérons revenir à Londres et nous ne manquerons pas de faire appel à toi. But where is Johnny DEPP ? Best wishes from France, Claudine
Hi. My family and I came on your art tour and enjoyed it very much. We loved your vivid descriptions of many of the artists, particularly of Ben Eine. A couple of hours after the tour we stopped at a random pub on Shoreditch High Street. Due to your description we recognized Ben Eine sitting at the bar. We asked and he confirmed who he was. We explained that we just learned about him and loved his work. He asked if we had seen his favourite, SCARY. We hadn't so he offered to show us. We followed him out the door snd just down the street where he showed us his favourite!
Mindi, USA through London Walks
Ms. Fornia has once again complemented your impeccable service. And they "adored" their guide Alex for their tour of London. I can't thank you enough for taking such wonderful care of Ms. Fornia; it greatly relieves to know that our clients are in wonderful hands! via Sincerely Paul
I cannot thank you enough for our guide and hotel arrangements in London. Our guide, Alex, was wonderful. Friendly and warm, and knowledgeable. The tours we took were perfect for the kids via Sincerely Paul.
