THE GUIDE WAS OUTSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGABLE. HE MADE THE TOUR A SUCCESS AND IT WAS EVERYTHING WE COULD HAVE HOPED FOR. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!OUR GREETINGS TO THE GUIDE
Rosa Maria was amazing! She was a joy to talk to and was a wealth of knowledge. I will use Viator to tour with again!
We were traveling with 4 people. We arrived at the scheduled time and place. Our guide was prompt and the 4 of us were the only people taking the tour that day. The guide was a registered guide and was wearing the blue official guide badge. We could not have asked for a better guide. She gave a great tour of both locations.
Fantastic tour. The private tour is the best way to go. Private tours lend themselves to a more personal approach and questions can always be asked and answered. The tour was informative and enjoyable. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. Five stars for sure.
The best guide ever. A real pleasure. If you like English history this ones for you. Leaves the rest of the day to wander around the dock side of London. Loved it.
Great tour guide, very interesting and informative. The guide recommended a great place for lunch afterwards that was perfect and off the beaten path!
A little disappointing, the guide appeared to have a lot of knowledge but did not share that knowledge without constant questioning.
This tour could have been done as easily on our own. There was no need for a private guide. Not a very good value.
A brisk and business like tour. The guide was informative and moved us around the site in a purposeful manner, much better than drifting around by ourselves. The guide arrived on one of those fold-up bicycles and plunged straight into the tour. We never did know his name.
This is a very long and ambitious tour with a lot of walking, including up and down steps. It would have been nice to have some built-in time to allow for short sitting breaks . Our tour guide spoke English but with a very heavy European accent, so it was frequently difficult to understand what was being said. We were interested in seeing the overall complex, tower and jewels, but not in all the detailed history, so probably would have skipped over parts of the tour if we had opted for a self-guided one. On the other hand, history buffs may really like the details provided on the various kings and queens. The price was high for the value we felt we received.
The Tower of London is a must do! Our tour guide was a little dull however, and that is unfortunate. We saw another group with a private guide who was animated and energetic, and we wished we were with that guide instead of ours. Our guide was very nice, it was simply that the energy level was low. If we had known ahead of time, we would have toured the Tower alone. The Tower Bridge was okay, but not a must do.
Interesting but feel could make better use of time doing tower self with a self guided tour.Just get there early to beat crowds to Crown Jewels.
Guide was Italian by origin. And spoke with a strong accent. Our kids are Norwegian. They simply could not understand what she was talking about. Very bad idea to have a non-english native speaker in the UK. I understand from the guide this is not the first time either.
Smaller complaint is that even if you could understand what she was saying (I was the only one who could) then there were not enough annecdotes. Could have done the same myself with a guide book. Overall a complete waste of (a lot of) money. Very dissapointing.
The tour was terrible. The guide had such a thick accent , we could not understand her. Also, she couldn't answer a lot of our questions. We were so so disappointed, we left an hour earlier . We would like to be reimbursed for a VERY expensive and horrible experience
