This was like stepping into history. I recommend this to everyone going to London.
It was great to hear about the audiences at the Globe Theatre in Shakespeare's day. Our guide Alex provided lots of colour and context for the theatre. We recommend the high tea as well - the food was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat... and when we couldn't finish it, the staff put some in a box for us to take home! Friendly service and a great view!
It's a nice tour for Shakespeare / theatre fans. Plus to get there is a nice walk along the river.
I got in to see a performance of Richard 11 after my tour which was the icing on the cake
The tour is an amazing experience, I would suggest booking the tour and the play on the same day to get the full experience. Wouldn't miss it!
Excellent tour and exhibition. Our tour guide was so enthusiastic bringing alive the theatre. We loved her and obviously she loved her work and being an actress
This tour was incredibly informative in a very entertaining way. The guide was excellent and had us all laughing on numerous occasions.
We spent about an hour looking at the exhibition, very interesting and creative. You don't need to be a massive fan of Shakespeare to enjoy this visit! We were able to watch actors rehearsing a fencing scene which was great.
The staff were all extremely pleasant , welcoming and helpful.
A great place to explore. It is a re-creation, but a pretty cool one.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our guide, who was both knowledgeable and entertaining, was wonderful. It gives you a real insight into the world of William Shakespeare.
We had a wonderful experience greatly helped along by our very excellent guide.
Fascinating place with wonderful and extremely knowledgeable tour guides.
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.
Wonderful tour and the 'tea' after was a meal. Truly enjoyed the entire experience.
Awesome tour and we had a fantastic guide. It even got the kids interested in Shakespeare - nice!
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.
If you're a fan of the Bard, this is a wonderful activity. Our guide was knowledgeable AND entertaining.
