A close look at that 'special relationship' from colonial ties to the present day.
Two different shades of red, white and blue in two iconic flags - but right from the very start of both country's intertwined relationship from those early Colonialists, the Founding Fathers through the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the American Civil War, the Great War and World War Two and much more recent history.
So much of United States of America's Heritage is wrapped up right here in London - and this full day tour will allow us to get right under the surface and get to meet those key characters in an experience that will surprise and amaze you.
Let me take you on a journey back to the 16th century and all the time coming back to the future as we look at the major events in a full day's timeline of London's American history.
This panoramic journey has a full running commentary and is punctuated by stops for stand up presentations and photo calls.
By default you will also get to see all of London's iconic landmarks but also many hidden many secret locations relative to the subject.
