Where to start!
This man is a wealth of information. He took my wife and I on a day tour which he customized with what we wanted to see. He would ask us to remember things from one place and tied them in later in the tour, Brilliant! I did also notice that everywhere we went, he knew people that worked there; very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. HE WAS THE BEST!!! Will call on him again next time we are in London; Lots to see & learn! We couldn’t recommend him more strongly or highly!”

Excellent Trip to Windsor and Stonehenge
Ray took my girlfriend and I to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge and proved to be an incredible tour guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, affable and easy going. The trip was not only greatly informative but truly a pleasure. I could not recommend Ray more highly. He picked us up right at our hotel and proved to be a genuinely kind, intelligent and easy to talk to tour guide the whole way. He exudes genuine passion for the landmarks we visited and his energy is infectious.

Tom and I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our day with you and helping introduce us to London. You put at us ease immediately. We were so inspired with your knowledge and passion for your country, city and the history. Your splendid use of weaving such interesting stories was truly amazing. I have already emailed the family to let them know Friday will be such a fun day. Looking forward to seeing you on Friday.

In September 2015 and again in September 2016, Ray led my USA-based university student groups on half-day tours of Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral, as well as a full-day tour of Oxford. Ray was extremely accommodating in getting everything organized. He even met with me for a few hours in July 2015, not just to review his plans but to ask me questions about the demographics of my groups so that he could appropriately tailor his guiding. As my students were science majors, he made sure to make connections to science when possible. In addition, he asked about the entire three-week program my students were doing, so he would know what the students did prior to the guiding, as well as what they were going to do, so he could add in context based on their program. I know that Ray usually works with small groups, but he was fantastic with my larger groups (15 and 16 students, respectively). The students thought he was amazing. His extensive knowledge of St Paul’s is especially noteworthy. Finally, he’s just a great guy with which to spend some time. I cannot recommend Ray more highly – worth every pence.
Customized Private Experience
In the days leading up to our trip, Ray was extremely helpful in planning a customized tour for my group of 4 friends. He promptly responded to my emails, offered suggestions to maximize our experience, and was totally flexible with what we wanted to accomplish. His prices were fair and comparable and having the wonderful experience as we did with Ray’s tour, I would have paid a premium! During our tours, Ray was helpful in explaining some of the history our group had not previously been aware of. He had fun with our group with taking pictures, recommending interesting areas to visit after our tour concluded, and shared some fun stories from an insider’s point of view. Lastly, I was 6 months pregnant and Ray went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable with the walking and standing we did. He pointed out rest rooms and arranged for me to sit when needed. He was respectful, professional, and truly made our London experience unforgettable! I can’t thank him enough!

Insiders tour of London!
I have certainly been on lots of these private guided tours all over the world; however this one was noteworthy of a great review! Ray Sharman of Yourwaytours didn’t just arrive at our hotel with a great attitude, car and demeanour; he brought the knowledge that only a lifetime Londoner could. He was super flexible in choreographing our day to make it as special and personal as could be. Ray really understands what smart and intuitive customer service is and by day’s end we were wishing the tour could go on. The tour far exceeded our expectations and should not be missed if your travels take you to London or the surrounding areas!

We Loved London!
Our family of 6 spent several days with Ray and we couldn’t have imagined learning more or seeing more with anyone else! Ray knows all the history, places to go and things to see, including Harry Potter extras that made our children extra happy! We travel often and use private tour guides and we hit the jackpot with Ray! We have already sent neighbors to London with Ray booked as their guide and we would tell anyone to spend time with him! It will enhance your experience in London so much!

On a recent visit to London the American Express Centurion Lifestyle team organised Ray from Yourwaytours to take us on a tailored city tour of London and also a trip out to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge the following day. We had an amazing time. Ray’s knowledge of both history and architecture and his ability to engage you with anecdotes and scandals is incredible. He can talk for days about the Monarchy, all of the significant sites in London (and beyond) and is also up to speed with the trendy restaurants, bars and areas to visit. The Mercedes was lovely and clean. We couldn’t fault this tour in any way.

London Girls’ Trip
We are so happy to have hired Ray to give us an unforgettable experience in London. We couldn’t get enough information and he knew everything! He was patient with all of our questions and repeated himself if we forgot a fact along the way; we just had so much fun. I travelled with three other good friends and this was definitely the way to go with the bigger attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Windsor Castle. There is a lot of information we probably would have missed out on and we were able to really absorb the history. He went out of his way to make sure we maximized our experience and it was unforgettable. Thank you, Ray!
