  • Our driver, Andrew, was absolutely perfect! We had so much fun. It very often felt like we were in the show and of course...you sort of are! Andrew showed us tons of locations from the show and even pointed out a few places from other movies and shows that we're fans of. He took us to Speedy's for a cuppa and we got some great pictures. Perfect tour and a perfect day!
