Francis was a wonderful guide. He had us movin’ quick, but it was great for us to hit all the perfect vantage points on the tour, and kept my interest the whole time. Great photos came out of this!! He was super knowledgeable and as a retired police officer, had some great inside knowledge of events around Buckingham and also some fun personal stories. I definitely recommend Urban Saunters, tour was easy to book and the meet up spot worked out great. Enjoy!
