2019 October wonderful London tour
NeilMR_12, 15-06-2021
(Actual Date Oct 2019) Due to a missed flight connection at Gatwick while heading to USA from Prague, my wife and I decided to spend a few days touring London. Since it was our first time, and we had previously had great experience with WithLocals in Central Europe, we logged on and were lucky to find Andreea available the next day. We explained our interests and she responded that we'd go off the standard walk plan a bit to focus on our requests. From the Barbican we proceeded to tour historic London as well as the new London - this city has done very well at integrating widely varying architecture. During the walk, Andreea told us much about London's history as well as current events and was able to answer our questions too. We used the information to plan our next few days of touring on our own - we couldn't have planned it so well without Andreea's advice. Near the end of our walk I noticed Andreea on her phone, apparently texting. But no! She was actually researching our request for good quality fish & chips, and we seamlessly ended our tour a a pub near Leicester Square where the lunch was just what we'd asked for.
