The Tour Guide, Phillip,was very knowledgeable and made you feel welcome. Very good!
Well worth the money and time! Augusta was our guide and she was fantastic, knowledgeable, funny and an expert at navigating the crazy crowds around Buckingham Palace. She knew exactly where to go for a view of the horse guard while avoiding the masses of people at the Palace gates. Budget more time for this tour. Felt a bit rushed leaving tea to make it to a 4pm tour of Parliament.
The tour was very good. I loved our tour guide. My sister had the time of our lives. We will back again next year.
It was wonderful.. Our guide Josh was very informative ... I would recommend this tour
Can't really fault this trip, Augusta our tour guide was helpful, friendly and informative. Only small criticism was that the afternoon tea although scrummy and beautifully presented was slow as only one was waiter was serving our whole party!
Augusta was a great tour guide. She helped us to get the best position for the changing of the guards. We were able to skip the line and get into the palace before the crowd. Afterwards we had tea at a nice hotel, and though I am a man, I appreciate a relaxing afternoon with lots of sugary treats :
This was a great tour. Our tour leader knew exactly where to stand and at what time to get the best pictures! We were so delighted with the tour and also the tea was fabulous too. I highly recommend doing the tour as opposed to trying to do things on your own since you'll miss the great suggestions and tips.
Great tour. I would highly recommend this. We had an excellent tour guide, Josh. He was knowledgeable, friendly and full of historical facts. The High Tea was fun and an excellent way to experience the English culture. It is a must do.
Well worth the money. A tour full of history and traditions.
Afternoon tea was a lovely experience.
Just superb. Our guide Georgia Darell was fantastic. She told stories, shared tidbits from history to current events, even down to how best to enjoy clotted cream at afternoon tea. Georgia always kept our group entertained and in the best place for photo ops. A MUST DO!!
What an experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpfully getting the group into the right position to see the procession going down the street. Certainly recommend doing this tour. : : :
We loved our Buckingham Palace Tour with Viator. Our guide was amazing and made the experience
delightful. Looking forward to booking other tours.
Since Buckingham is only open for 2 months a year we scheduled our trip to do this tour. It was well worth it!! Georgia was our guide and was entertaining as well as knowledgeable. The afternoon tea at Rubens topped off the afternoon. My only advice is to request Georgia as your guide and please Viator add enough time at the end of the tour for a few minutes at the Palace gift shop.
Excellent tour, faultless guide Kieran, absolute ball of information, and very friendly.
This was a great tour complete with changing of the guard and the afternoon tea. Comfortable walking tour - had my 80 year old dad with us and he managed fine. We got to see everything and more of what we had expected. Our guide was very knowledgeable and charismatic. He kept us entertained. Definitely recommend this one!
The tour guide was great. He was very funny and charming, which made the tour enjoyable. Also, it was great to be able to visit inside the palace due to the Queen being on holiday.
Unbelievable!!! It's hard to imaging that such a place exist. The Afternoon Tea was an interesting event for me. Loved the changing of the Horse Guards.
The tour was outstanding and special mention must be made of Phil the tour guide from City Wonders who was very knowledgeable and entertaining - highly recommended.
I'm glad I booked this tour.Our guide Michael was a wealth of knowledge.Afternoon tea was a lovely way to end a fabulous day.
Our guide was great! We saw the Changing of the Guard up close and he took us to the beginning, middle and end of the ceremony. Loved the Palace tour and the tea and sandwiches at the end were wonderful. The hotel was very nice and historic.
