Our guide Tish was a hit!!!!

Day went well. Pick-up at nearby hotel was practical. Definitely a good idea to book the lunch along with the tour. Best part was Tish (our guide). Looking forward to having a tour with her again someday. What a great sense of humor!!! We were a big group - 15 in total - and everyone enjoyed the day. Way to go Tish!!! One small glitch - website claims that we would have lunch in Covent Gardens - incorrect information!!! We ate lunch at a Medieval restaurant near the river. Definitely include the lunch with the booking.
