This was a free walking tour of London. The tour guide was wonderful. As we were walking, we were able to watch bands and horses that were practicing for Trooping of the Color. What a sight. The crowds were horrible.

We were thoroughly disappointed that there was no tour for us this morning. We showed up 15 minutes prior and waited around till 15 minutes after the meeting time. No one showed. Awful!
