The tour guide was very informative, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable thanks to Becky. We have been very disappointed since three of our tours were cancelled, it really ruined our time here at London. At least this tour with Becky was really good, thank you again. I appreciated that even though it was my husband and I we your company still keeps the tours going, thank you Babylon London Tours!!!!!
