Perfect Day in London
jackw0829, 09-09-2022
A beyond perfect day. My wife had family over from Ireland but they were only here for a day - the kids had never been to London so we wanted to treat them to a day out to see all the sights of the Capital. We were picked up from the hotel by the Guide Tom and Driver Anna. In the morning we were able to cover so much, Trafalgar Sq, Big Ben, Buck Palace, Covent Garden (which the kids loved) and the Horses on Whitehall. In the afternoon, we went for lunch at Borough Market, Tom gave us some great places to find the best food, and then we carried on with our adventure - Tower Bridge, Tower of London and the City. Tom was entertaining for the kids and engaging for the adults. Being a Londoner myself, I even saw areas and stories that I never knew about! Our family went away happy and I cant thank the guys enough for what was a phenomenal day. Top Marks!

Company was great in accommodating booking within 24 hours after competitor cancelled on me at the last minute. Our guide Joe, and driver Anna were superb and arrived at our hotel early. The vehicle was immpecably clean and comfortable. The tour took us to all of the iconic sites in London and some that were off the beaten path. Joe's knowledge of the sites visited was exceptional. He was very charismatic and enthusiastic. Anna'a driving was suberb and together they had a chemistry that made our tour thoroughly enjoyable. At the end of the day, we shared a lot of laughs, had a great lunch at a historic pub, and saw and photographed a lot of history. Truely a memorable experience and a highly remmended tour.
