"It was a surreal experience to walk the streets and visit the places where Churchill lived and worked, interspersed with Tom’s recounting of the significance of such places to Churchill’ s life (while, indeed, touching upon other matters of interest along the way). Many tour guides provide a perfunctory experience which, while technically correct in regard to the content conveyed, do not leave any lasting impression. This is not so with Tom, whose anecdotes are shared with an evident passion and love for London, rich in detail, and which in our case, provoked interesting and engaging discussion. "
