You don't have to know a single thing about Shakespeare to enjoy this tour. The guide's presentation put just as much focus on the social life at the time and was able to provide interesting information on the building of this replica. I especially like how she weaved in lines from Shakespeare's plays and sonnets without calling them out, an added bonus if you do know the stuff. Great place, great tour, great guide. The ticket takers, however, were surprisingly surly to the point of being insulting.

Very informative. You can't go to London and miss seeing The Globe!

Fantastic guide. Loved the stories and history of the Globe Theater. Also the gift shop was a great and reasonable place to pick up unique gifts.

Excellent tour. I learnt a great deal that I wished I had known when I was at high school. Well worth visiting the theatre. If I had more time I would have booked to see a performance. This tour whet my appetite for more.
The afternoon tea, while very nice, was not the organised event I thought it would be. Usually as a solo traveller I include the meal if offered. It gives an opportunity to sit down with and meet people. This was not the case and I found it difficult to find anyone who could help me find where the activity was held.
If you decide to book for a Saturday as I did, be warned that the tours finish for the day by about 1.30 pm and the afternoon tea is not scheduled until at least 2.30 pm. This left me at a loose end and if I had been going during the week I would have taken a tour closer to the afternoon tea time.

The ticket helped us avoid the lines into the attraction. We enjoyed the tour by the globe employees very much especially as my wife is an English teacher.

My husband was not very excited about doing this tour. He thought the "Tea" Portion of the tour would be cheesy. We were very pleased that it was actually a restaurant English Tea room and we were able to enjoy the experience at our own pace. The tour of the theater was very good as well and because we were a small group we were treated to areas that larger groups don't get to enjoy.
