Alan was a spectacular tour guide! He was professional, well prepared, engaging, knowledgeable, interesting, and fun...We were captivated and hung on his every word as he guided us through the streets of the city telling us about the history of London, taught us about the old iconic churches and buildings, took us to a rooftop to survey the entire city, and showed us some spectacular modern buildings. We loved every minute of it! We spent our entire time in London talking about all we learned on this tour. Thank you Alan! Thank you Context!
An architect talking about architecture. Win, win! Very well informed, very anxious to teach.
Alan was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, pleasant to hang out and chat with. Very professional and able to discuss the projects intelligently as well. I enjoyed it. He was also flexible and oriented the tour to my interests.
