David allowed us to customize this tour to our specific needs -- we had lived in Kent many years ago and wanted to show our granddaughter where we lived, our pub, the White Cliffs of Dover and Canterbury Cathedral. David knew so many interesting details we had never known and he took care to show us everything. This was a long but comfortable day in the 6-passenger London black cab. Even though I had suffered a recent back injury, David ensured our comfort, moved at our pace and offered continuous help
