What a wonderful walking tour and our guide Jason! It was our first time visiting London, and the tour was so well organised. It was easy to find the meeting point, and we got to see all the great city attractions, like the Green Park, Buckingham palace, London Eye, Big Ben, and many more! Jason was so nice, knowledgable and entertaining! We listened to the stories about the history of the Country and the Queen, and it felt so great! Worth every penny and we highly recommend! Thank you Jason!
