Having access to the opening of the Tower of London was great! So was being able to see the Crown Jewels before the general public was allowed in! The rest of the tour was a disappointment. It was a Thursday so there was no changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. The normal alternative of changing of the guard at another location involving horses didn't take place either because they were practicing for some Royal's birthday. So instead we just walked an incredibly long distance with no stops for a bathroom or refreshments. Also, the Thames river cruise was not really a cruise but was just a short means of transportation. This wouldn't have been so bad if the tour wasn't as expensive as it was.

Amazing tour! Natalie was so informative and friendly! We enjoyed early entrance to the Tower of London. She also made sure we were able to see so many site in the four hours we were with her. This was by far the best tour we’ve had on this trip!

Everything. Our tour guide Louise was excellent. She was personable informative and knowledgeable. We particularly liked the changing of the guard with all the horses.

David was a very knowledgeable, accommodating and witty tour guide. He went above and beyond to ensure we everyone on the tour had an enjoyable time!

Would have appreciated a heads up regarding the difficulty of arriving at the gathering point since on the day of our tour it was a huge bike race in London and all the roads were closed! We probably would have changed our date of tour because of that. It was daunting to attempt the tube when one has never used it and we all were in our 70s. We did it, but it was stressful!
