We woke up to a rainy morning. We had to meet with our tour guide at 10:15am but the cab ride was a little slow. We arrived at the agreed location and were welcomed warmly regardless of our delay. Robert was our assigned guide. He got right into it wasting no time. He was very knowledgeable and aware of the surroundings and shared many important protocols. Robert is warm, friendly and funny. Anyone can see that Robert has a honest and keen appreciation for the British History. We all are very thankful to have had the opportunity to learn from him all the history from London area. He even took some photos of us!🤙🏻Strongly recommend.
