A city of a thousand faces of history.

I booked the 3 hr walking tour of London with Nicholas for myself and my family. Nicholas was waiting promptly at 3pm in our hotel lobby. The tour itself was excellent, but Nicholas' knowledge and personality really made it a memorable event for myself and my family. Nicholas hit all the expected sights and many areas we would not have thought to see. Of the 5 days we spent in London, my wife and son said the tour with Nicholas was the best sightseeing we did. I highly recommend Nicholas for touring.
