I have been on a number of Anthony's walks and loved all of them - very informative, lots of fascinating stories and introduced me to bits of London I never knew existed. Highly recommended.

It was a great pleasure to take you - you were all a super group and it was a privilege to guide such interested people. Please come back and take one of my other tours another year, perhaps the one in Westminster ... Anthony
