Suzie responded well to our requests. We had a relaxing and interesting afternoon. We are very enthusiastic about photography and after she understood that our focus is on photography, everything went very smoothly and she came up with good suggestions... We didn't miss out on anything worth knowing and the six hours (at around 30 degrees) are included two relaxing stops and insider tips for Harry Potter fan locations just flew by. Thank you very much.

It was very beautiful. We just started walking and experienced a lot of great sights: over Westminster Bridge to Westminster Abbey, then to DowningStreet, where the Prime Minister has his offices, to Whitehall. Via HorseGuards, Churchill Museum, Queen Annes Gate through St James Park to Buckingham Palace where we saw the Changing of the Guardinas at 11am. Very beautiful! Continue via The Green Park to the house where Charles lives (Clarence House), continue to St. James Palace, continue via The Mall to the Queen's favorite shop and through the lane where the Royal Tailors shop is. on to Trafalgar Square. Continue by bus to Kensington Palace where Prince William lives with Kate. Through Kensington Gardens to Hyde Park past the Princess Diana Memorial. Now know where the royals go to church (St.Mary Abbott Church) and where Meghan bought her flowers every day :-). Where Harry Potter author Joanne Kathleen Rolling lives and much more.

I am glad.

Visit according to the announcement, A charming French-speaking guide showed me around the main sites of London. I had taken the oyster card which is very convenient: we were able to take the bus from the hotel, then the metro at the end of the 4 hour route to save time. We did some walking, the ideal for me for a better discovery.
