Sam was outstanding - I'll do it again sometime with other visitors

As I have said above, the tour was superb. However, I hope you won't mind me querying your pricing policy. I have no idea how your costings are compiled, but there were seven people booked for the Tour (Tue 25/6), one person did not appear, so revenue was either £180 (if someone cancelled) or £210 for one person to provide a two hour presentation on the move. Is that a reasonable price?
