Tim and Jane are the best. They both are extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and organized. Their love of England is apparent to anyone who talks to them for more than 10 seconds. I would travel anywhere with either or both of them.

The entire trip left me with many wonderful memories of Cuba...The Cuban people we met revealed the soul of Cuba by generously sharing their passion, creativity and knowledge with us. I especially enjoyed the last night in Havana when we gathered at the very cool tapas bar at sunset. Two authentic troubadours serenaded us with song and acoustic guitars. Wow! – Go Learn Cuba Traveler

Traveling with Tim Slover and Jane England was like having local experts to guide us. Whether it was standing on the lawn outside Parliament, in front of a painting at the National Gallery, in the Grecian room at the British Museum or on the tube en route to Othello, when Tim spoke to brief us even the Brits gathered around to listen.
