What people are saying about London

A great tour with a small group was just what we needed. Really enjoyed the early tour and the time with the Beefeaters. Our tour guy did a good job of giving us information before we went into the tower of London, guiding us to what we needed to see and explaining what we were seeing as well. Would definitely recommend this is a must see if for the Tower of London.

No clear directions for regular ticket entrance. I purchased a regular ticket and only saw entrance directions for fast track. Once we found out that both entrances were the same, we were fine.

Brilliant views of London. Staff very friendly especially Simon joy of knowledge .

We really enjoyed the experience and found it really interesting. A great day out

Could spend the day there. If you’re an English history buff you will love this.
