We were met at our hotel by Stephen after introductions we set off on an old pub/ historical tour. This tour turned out to be s pub/WWII/London tour because we were so interested in so many things. Stephen worked with us to answer all our questions and point out sooo many location with background. The tour was fantastic. Wished it could have gone on longer..... would highly recommend his company “the olde England tours” to anyone....we are considering returning to London and will definitely tour with the company again.
Fantastic

Stephen Liddell is so informed and interesting. I would book the other tours he offers when I return to London. Excellent, I saw places that were hidden away gems.
