I had a great time. The tour guide was very friendly and professional. He always endure not a single person left behind by counting in detail before moving to the next stop. The arrangement fromTower of London to cruising to in-flight London eye was very systematic and organized. I love the whole trip.

Derek was an excellent guide. His knowledge of London exceptional. BUT we were handed off to Robert? for transfer to our Tea at Harrods. Robert was a disappointment. He walked exceptionally fast for several of our group with walking difficulties and seemed to have little concern for them. On more than one occasion he apologized for his curt speaking saying that "it was because he was British".

Peter was an excellent tour guide!!! Definitely a favorite after doing so many tours recently. He was hilarious and made the experience memorable and was a great story teller. He was also very knowledgeable and kept us all organized being a big group. Gary was also a great driver on the narrow roads- very impressive. Him and Peter made a great team when having to think quick on their feet and come up with an alternate way to get to the changing of the guards when they closed down two of the usual roads.
