JAKE was tremendous what a charming young man, we were once again floored by the professional service. My husband and I are new to Europe and the Babylon tours came recommended, but we never realized how much they helped us get the most out of each city we visited. The British museum at first seemed overwhelming but Jake made sure to give us just enough to leave us feeling we conquered it! and we then had a great lunch where we started chatting and laughing like old friends. London was beautiful (weather too! we got lucky that day) Jake being a native and seasoned tour guide was the perfect company on our first visit. We leaned, we laughed and we will definitely come back... to shop!!! Thank you Jake
