Jane was the best hostess! She was recognized throughout the tour by her colleagues and was so knowledgeable. She shared so much and made our tour very interesting.

Jane our guide was great. She was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of good history and facts about both the Abbey and Parliament. We enjoyed it.

For the Westminter Abbey Tour, our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and engaging. We had previously visited the Abbey, but were enthralled with the level of knowledge our guide displayed. Well worth doing. The added optional tour of the Houses of Parliament is somewhat misleading as this is a self guided tour of the houses, which the guide does not accompany you on.

The guide was very good, most informative she explained everything that would happen once we got to the houses of Parliament, the tour itself was very good, great too see the commons & the Lords where democracy happens.

Was not informed of parliament being closed until morning of four- organizer attempted ti offer a 25$ refund for each person when over half the tour was either not provided in the slightest and they just tried to refund me the seeming value of the entry ticket to parliament when our tour only included Westminster abbey
