One of Churchills worst mistakes was not keeping De Gaulle locked up for the duration of the War. He certainly should not have been allowed to lead the victory parade in Paris. He went on to treat the United Kingdom with vindictive malice.

Very knowledgeable guide who will guide you through some of the most iconic districts of the city of London. At the same time we discovered where De Gaulle lived and worked, such an important part of our history. I recommend this tour for everyone.

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
