Alfie and Mary Anne provide a wonderful two hours of historical information and entertainment seeing parts of London that would not ordinarily be seen. Could not recommend his more highly, wonderful insights. Also saw things in a very different light.

Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
