We had Chris as our guide. He was knowledgeable, engaging and considerate of the group’s needs. It was a terrific experience which our family of two adults and one college-aged son really enjoyed. Would highly recommend this tour even for folks who have been to London several times but have never had an ‘insider’ view of the history. Thank-you Chris!!
