“An afternoon with Viv is an education…Her vivid first-hand account of life on the street was revelatory and, through her story, you gained such insight…Viv took us into the Savoy; her influence is pervasive because next night I booked dinner there…There can be very few better ways of spending your tourist £s, €s and $s.” TripAdvisor May 2018
