“Thank you very much for taking us around the Olympic Park and showing us a little of other parts of East London on Sunday. Your enthusiasm, knowledge and flexibility made it a very enjoyable occasion. Everyone also commented how well they thought you drove. We all had a great time with you and John especially enjoyed visiting old haunts at Greenwich! Many thanks, Best Wishes, Mike (and the rest)”
Mike Madgin, UK
“Everybody (myself included!) really enjoyed the tour. It is lovely to have a better feel for the neighbourhood (and to realise how much is going on at our doorstep!)”
Orla Lynskey, LSE, London
“What a wonderful day. I felt as if we were spending the day with an old friend. I can't tell you how thrilled we were with our choice of guides. The girls have not stopped talking about how much fun you were. We have hired many guides over the years and you were at the top in service as well knowledge. Where you truly excel though is personality. If we lived here I'm sure we would be great friends. Perhaps some day you will come to California and allow us to be your guide.”
David Stewart, California
“Our thanks to you for making London become "real". Because of our excursion with you, we were able to have a good feel for the City and were able to accomplish a great deal in the five days that we were there.
We speak lovingly of this holiday, we felt like we had been gone a month. We have to hand it to the UK, you guys win hands down over France and we are now plugging London as THE place to visit. Thank you again for starting our holiday out on a high note. It is a vacation that we will truly cherish.”
“I wanted to thank you for the great tour of London along with Mark and Andrea. You brought the city to life for us and took us down some narrow, seldom seen back alleys with interesting stories for every turn in the road. We had a great time and would recommend your services highly to any potential clients.”
“You have won the prize as best tour guide on our travels -– you won out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which means everyone was just thrilled. Thanks for a wonderful morning – it surpassed all our expectations.”
“We had a wonderful rest of vacation (although nothing compared to our day with you in London). We just got back a week ago. We still remember you so very fondly and the kids can't stop talking about you. We had such a lovely time. In fact, we bought a giraffe in London Heathrow (a little toy) which has been named Catherine after you!!”
Dharmaraj family, California
“Thank you again for your continued professionalism and vast knowledge of the city's history. I will certainly be recommending you for any future visits. It’s been lovely working with you and I hope to do this again in the future.”
Lorraine, Cummins Power, UK
“I want to relay the message about how please he was about the walking tour guide on the London trip last week. She was full of local knowledge, history, and because her background was in finance, she actually tied in the walk to what they are studying.” Thank you so much for your tour and efforts, this makes such a difference with our groups and can really make the entire trip for them.”
Kate, ISIS Education
"Here's a photos of (mostly) Golden Oldies on their Guided Walk yesterday! We had a gentle and convivial amble in glorious sunshine. Cathy Cartwright gave us a most informative tour and talk about some of the hidden corners of Chelsea. We finished by having a delicious, al fresco lunch in the Chelsea Physic Garden. Strongly recommended... and perhaps some of you may feel tempted to join us another time?"
"Thank you so much for leading and guiding a walk for our heritage trail. I wish I had joined you because everyone said how interesting you were and how you led people to discover so many secret places. I was very pleased by the buzz we created and at the pleasure of so many East Enders showed that we all value their history and heritage. You were wonderful and we are SO grateful."
Diana Beattie, Heritage of London Trust
"It was then off to the City, where I would meet London Undone tour guide Catherine Cartwright – a walking encyclopaedia. I always knew London had history but I never realised how interesting it was until I had met Catherine. Funny that a girl from Newport would make me see London in a different light."
Ben Wright, South Wales Evening Post
“Catherine's talk was packed full of interesting information and very enthusiastically delivered. She was very good at holding the attention and of her diverse group and her route was well thought out. Thanks to her I have discovered a Jewish cemetery hidden behind a university and a new interest in East London that goes beyond the usual gangster stories.”
"Very many thanks for the wonderful walk you gave us. We all enjoyed it so very much and if you heard all the things the others said about you – you might even go pink!"
Abbey Wright, London
"Hi Catherine, Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed your tour around the National Gallery this morning. I also liked the way you seemed to personalise your discussion of each painting with how it personally affected you. Your descriptions were excellent teasing out the little details that are what makes visiting a gallery with a guide all the more enjoyable."
