My rating is a hymn of praise to Julia, seriously, I really enjoyed the tour, the impressions remain as a positive memory of an exciting morning with many new and interesting insights into royal life. At the end of the tour, Julia kindly escorted me to the entrance of Westminster Abbey and gave me discounted entry, which I thought was great. I would highly recommend everyone to book. For my part, I would like to experience another tour with Julia on my next visit to London.

Tim, our guide, was superb. Very knowledgeable, patient, easy to understand and really cared that everyone had what they needed. Great sense of British humor. Really knew his stuff.

Very good tour. The guide was excellent (Marica Monti), pleasant company and great commentary on the city's history and sites. I highly recommend!
