Everything went great. Pick up at the hotel, then take the subway to the museum. Our guide, Nigel, was just awesome. Very friendly and knew a lot to tell! The museum was very impressive: certainly go again. Next year is the 100th anniversary. Because of this occasion, mighty buildings are being built.

Fun and Educational

Kevin my tour guide was smart and fun. He pointed out different things on our way out to Greenwich that I didn’t know. Also very important- he allowed me to pop into the shops for souvenirs. Great day out and had great weather

I really enjoyed the tour.

My guide Kevin made me very happy with his many stories about Sherlock's film locations and other small and large bizarre episodes from London. Thank you very much
