Great Tour, Knowledgeable Tour Guide, Expert Driver!
I enjoyed this tour immensely. I found the tour guide especially knowledgeable and personable. She gave us interesting information while driving to the destinations as well as when we were at the sites. I found the St. Paul Cathedral portion of particular interest. Lastly, just a word about the bus itself. It was clean, comfortable, and expertly driven by the driver. No small feat in the streets of London!
