Paul was terrific. He met our cruise ship right on time in an authentic London taxi with forward and backward facing seats. That was a treat. We had three people but may have been a little squished if we had five. Paul was extremely flexible in accommodating our interests and schedule. We even had some last minute requests that he was happy to meet. Paul did not talk a lot about the history of the area, but he gave us great insight into the people and culture. Would highly recommend!
