Phil and Danielle were both excellent guides. They shared a lot of history and stories. They pointed out many interesting places. They both had a lot of enthusiasm for the tour.

This tour was amazing and our Tour Guide Gavin was exceptional. He was knowledgeable, interesting and fun! We were the only group allowed in for the opening ceremony of the Tower of London which gives you a head start to view the Crown Jewels before the crowd. Throughout the tour Gavin's timing was impeccable and he knew just where to be at the right time for the best viewing. We were there for the Guards Parade. We were so close we could have reached out and touched them. Gavin also had wonderful little "family stories" which he included with the historical accounts that made the tour even more interesting. We included the London Highlights and were glad we did as it added even more depth to the tour. Thank you for a fabulous tour Gavin!

While we didn't get to see the changing of the guard, we did get to see the dress rehearsal of the Trooping of the Color in preparation for the Queen's birthday. Lots of walking on this tour - be warned to wear comfortable shoes!

This was amazing! This was the one tour that gives you the full taste of London's history. Our tour guide Gavinnot Kevin, haha was the one of the top highlights of our entire stay in London. We did this tour our second day and Gavin was very helpful in answering all our questions that we had for the rest of our trip! We were the only ones going for tea in the afternoon so he tailored the afternoon tour to some of the things we were interested in. HE WAS AWESOME!! We will definitely want to see him again if we come back to London! Thanks Gavin!! You rock! The Altons

EXCELENT TOUR

Feb 2017

This two-part tour was really fun and interesting. You are the only people allowed inside the Tower of London for the morning opening ceremony, which gives you quick and easy access to the Crown Jewels viewing area before everyone else. Our tour guide was fun and lively and gave us lots of interesting facts. We packed a lot into the morning, then had a two hour break for lunch, and then met up again for the afternoon. The tea at the end of the tour was amazing, filled with food and a great chance to chat with the other members of the tour in a lovely hotel. All in all, a wonderful tour and well worth it!

Excellent tour guide. Very accommodating and knowledgeable, especially appreciated by us older persons who are a little slower with the walking. Time allowed at the Tower of London was entirely too short. Needed another hour or two to really see the grounds and explore this historical site. Could have liked more time at the tower and less extensive walking tour. The tea was very nice and made up for us skipping our afternoon walking tour. Thanks to our wonderful guide!
