Whiti City Cabs

I write to thank you both for looking after all my travel requirements at my old town. You really went beyond the normal cab service. Cab drivers do not as a general rule become photographers for their clients. Thank you for e-mailing the pictures, they were waiting for me when I arrived home. All in all I had a couple of very good days.
Barry Brunton, passenger

Can your driver tell me where to find things in town?
