    This tour was a highlight of our 2 week trip from Barcelona to London! Our guide Jo was not only incredibly knowledgeable about- Everything!, but she always put us in exactly the right spot at the right time for fantastic access! Did I mention her sense of humor? She had us laughing constantly; her historical remarks were highlighted with humorous anecdotes with perfect timing! The Crown Jewels and armor exhibit at the Tower rival any traditional museum visit, and we saw the Horse Guard change at the palace after a very pleasant river excursion on the Thames. Great Tour!

Tour was awesome and a great way to beat the crowds at London Tower

We really enjoyed this tour. Nathan was one of the best guides we've had on our four week vacation. He was witty, informative, personable, and patient with all the questions people asked. He kept the tour moving, but gave plenty of time for us to look around and/or take pictures. It was great to be able to get into the Tower early and see the Beefeaters opening it up for the day. This also gave us the opportunity to get to see the crown jewels before everyone else got in.

This great tour is a good way to get to know London. The tour guide Tish always very attentive and super friendly ready to collaborate all the time.

Our tour guide Nathan was fabulous. He was chock full of knowledge and I loved his dry British humor. Highly recommend the tour.

Amber was great. She had lots of knowledge and interesting facts for us. Her enthusiasm for the tasks at hand was infectious
