This tour was amazing! Our tour guide, Denisa, was just perfect for our family. She was engaging, knowledgeable and kept our 7 year old fully involved and kept us moving throughout the tour, pausing to share her knowledge. We enjoyed spending these few hours with her and felt that we walked away learning many things we had not known about Westminster Abbey! She made it easy to understand even for our 7 year old who asked a lot of questions! Ask for Denisa, you will be thankful that you did!
