Entertaining and informative tour about the Tube!

Richard was a great tour guide! Funny and very knowledgeable. The title of the tour was a bit misleading for us: we expected reading "underground" not so much "Tube" but more "hidden corners" or basement-like places... but, never mind! It was worth every minute. :-)
