Featured guest review:

‘Our afternoon driver, William, had a wealth of knowledge and his commentary was full of interesting facts. He pointed out various landmarks, buildings and parks. We visited Fitzroy Gardens for a stroll before continuing our tour. We arrived in Brighton with enough time to visit the local shops and sample some lovely cream cakes. We were then driven back to the city and dropped off at our hotel. Everything ran smoothly.’ David
