A Recent Review of this tour

Dawn is amazing and took care of us (2 adults & teen) for 2 days in July 2018. One day was in London and the 2nd at Windsor Castle & Hampton Court Palace. Dawn built the itinerary for us as it was our first visit to the area and the end result was a perfect blend of sites with all the coordination of transportation, venue entry and very informative dialogue by Dawn about each site looked after. Dawn really cares about your experience & her insights at each site are invaluable. Thank you Dawn!
