“We had a great time in London. Our kids loved it. From Helens home it is only a short ride into central London, very convenient. However, we also enjoyed the local restaurants in Tooting. Helen and Phil were very supportive and the communication was easy and response very fast. They offered us a very warm welcome. ”
