We started a wonderful European vacation in London for the Queens birthday. That week was near perfect weather but in addition we found London to be friendly, safe, welcoming, clean and that was a pleasant surprise to us. The taxi drivers charged us fairly and were all very helpful. The tourist maps in center city were also well designed & placed. You also had information officers that even located restaurants on google!! Very helpful. Your metros ran on time--without any strike--and all were safe & clean. We can only compare to Cannes (smaller of course) , Paris (also nice), and now Barcelona (where the only English comes from French interns!?) Keep up the good work----America & Europe can learn some good things from you Brits!!
