    Tim was a great host for the 3 hour walking tour. Loads of facts and stories which were fun and great even for those who have lived or worked in London for years. Then we were on our own with tickets for the cable car (not sure why but we only had single tickets which meant queuing to buy returns in the rain). Then the walk across the dome. Thankfully it had stopped raining and the views were brilliant and well briefed. Matt was fab and the experience is all well planned. A lovely day - thank you
