Peter was absolutely fantastic! He was both "tour guide" & "English history teacher." His knowledge about what we toured was phenomenal. He shared interesting facts/trivia about music, buildings, churches, people, museums, etc. This was our first visit to London & had only 1 day to tour the city. Peter hit all the main attractions as well as many lesser known spots. He was keen at maneuvering his black cab about town & knew where to go to avoid the crowds. We had a wonderful day!
