Dragon our driver was AWESOME!!! If you are ever in London and you are short on time, book this through Viator and ask for Dragon, if that is possible. OMG...He helped us plan our entire day. It was well worth the money. It was nice to not have to spend time on how to get from point A to point B because we were only in London for two days. Having a driver who catered to my God daughter and I was the best pampering ever. Prior to the trip my God daughter and I had an idea of the places we wanted to shop so it was helpful to Dragon to help us map out our time.

We enjoyed the markets and felt we had a unique perspective on them on a Sunday. Our driver was knowledgeable about the processes and the level of markets, forcasting projected crowds, and setting a schedule that was acceptable to our group of six.
