An amazing stroll through Mayfair and St James. Sandy my guide is charm personified and her knowledge was extensive, informative and delivered in an easy friendly manner. If like me you are interested in an extensive and detailed history of the two areas then this is the tour for you. I discovered the history of so many shops and how many of them started at Market stalls. The stroll through Fortnum and Masons was informative and discovered just what an innovative store it is. Most notably the many beehives scattered throughout London rooftops and the frenzy of purchasing when released for sale in late summer. I'm particularly interested in the Regency's period and Sandy went out of her way to take me to particular areas of interest. I can not recommend this tour more highly. Next year when I return to London off to Hampton Court I will go with Sandy.
