Wonderful City Tour with Added Queen siting
, May 2019
Doug took our group on a fun and interesting tour of London. His wit and insight into history along with unique stories about the city made this an enjoyable morning. You can tell Doug is passionate about his city and wants to share that love with visitors. An added bonus to our tour was when Queen Elizabeth passed us in a motorcade! She even waved and acknowledged the cheers for her!
