Everything worked perfectly. The docent, Hattie Bennett, was amazing. Well prepared, knowledgeable and friendly. She was also able to deal effectively with a last-moment request for wheelchair assistance for an elderly member of our party. Terrific program, we will book again.

We took two private tours: One at the British Museum, which was our best tour in London and one at Westminster Abbey, which was also great. Both guides were really great because they engaged adults and children and provided lots of information by telling stories.
