Though the drizzling rain from our meeting point to Buckingham Palace was not on the agenda, once inside the Palace, all our comments turned from ohhhh--to ahhh, and it was fascinating to see history unfold before our eyes. The High Tea in the elegant landmark hotel was especially enjoyable, and was one of the highlights of our trip to London. Truly and wholeheartedly recommended!

The tour, the palace and the Tea was fantastic. Only draw back is the TEA was much more than a short walk from the palace and it was a torrential downpour and we arrived soaked , in hindsight we should have followed another tourist and took a taxi to the Tea

A unique services tour of the Buckingham Palace. The self-guided narrated your allowed a leisurely pace. Part of the tour was narrated by the royals. Description should include that tea is at a nearby hotel, not at the palace. But it's still a once in a lifetime experience.

Tour exceeded expectations. Very well organized. Buckingham Palace was incredible. Learned a lot about the history behind it. The tea and desserts and sandwiches afterwards was also great.
