Got to see many different things...
, Aug 2017
Got to see many different things, without staying too long in any one place. The dialogue was wonderful with Becky, who was both fun and informative!
We did this tour on our first day in London. This is a great tour and our tour guide, Becca was excellent. She really brought the city to life. The fact that this was a small group tour with only six people made it super enjoyable as well. Again-the tour guide had studied history and art possibly a masters or Ph.d and was extremely well versed in the entire city, British history and the Royal Family. Great for kids and adults.
