    I thought this was a continuous tour. However, it is a two part tour put together. Both tour guides were awesome. One the first part of the tour we used a headset so we could hear our tour guide easier. I would have liked if this would have been used on both parts being London can be a bit crowded.

Our VIP early access trip at the Tower was fantastic today. Our guide Rob made the whole experience so relaxing and interesting. From the moment he met us at the station we were blown away by his easygoing manner and incredible knowledge of the site. The early access part of the trip was the highlight for me, in particular the ceremony of the keys. Worth every penny it was a day we’ll never forget.

Excellent experience to have the opportunity in a small group to see the Opening Ceremony and not to have to queue to see The Crown Jewels. Charlotte was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide, that give you a good insight into the history of The Tower of London..
