We stayed on the queen Mary, long beach and wanted a 'whistle stop' cinematic tour- this day filled the bill and more, our guide- I think Roberto- was engaging, warm funny highly informative and interacted with us all, my son aged 20 was kept amused and entertained . I lovedhis choice of music for the tour and we all sang along to what lyrics we could remember! We attempted to answer his quiz celebrity questions but a lady on our bus could have entered 'mastermind' on film as she knew most of the answers, luckily there did not seem to be a prize....or was there? ....
The only contribution my husband was able to make was regarding the history of the queen Mary and though I hate to say it ....roberto, he was right! According to the author James Steele published by Phaidon (page 25) 'for nearly three years the queen Mary's silent hull formed a second horizon on clydebank dwarfing the works of John brown and company where construction has ceased in December 1931. Here (ie the photograph in the book) the shipyard workers March back into action after a government subsidy allowed work on the ship to resume in April 1934'.
This aside This day was rip roaring and fun, never a dull minute despite the traffic I would recommend it to everyone! You will get all the photographic opportunities for the memories you want to share, you will see so much more than listed on the tour,
thanks Roberto! You were the brightest star of all!!
