The Globe was one of our (my 25-year-old daughter) favorite tours. Very interesting, wonderful/humorous/informative guide. We wish we had stayed for the play that afternoon. We missed our assigned day by 5 minutes but they let us come back a few days later.
This was a very interesting tour. Our hostess as very knowledgable and injected humour into her commentry. Good value for money.
Loved the Globe! Beautiful location right by the Thames, very informative tour and the thrill of feeling transported back to Shakespeare's time...a good time was had by all!
Tour was very organized for such a large group. Our guide projected her voice well as two other tours were taking place at the same time. We sat on separate sides of the theater so cross-conversation was not an issue. The information was interesting and added to my prior knowledge of the Globe. I suggest making reservations to see one of the performances before leaving the tour.
Loved Shakespeare's Globe, our guide was knowledgeable and funny. He did a wonderful job explaining the history and answered all our questions. Absolutely wonderful.

Loved the Globe. The guide was well informed and knowledgeable. Booking through Viator was easy and problem free.
Very interesting displays in the museum section, and the Globe tour guide was quite knowledgeable and thorough.
Excellent tour, great exhibit, tasty tea and scones to chase away the chill. Interested in theater? Visit the Globe!
We found the Viator tickets that we bought were well worth getting.
Excellent tour of the theatre. Guide was most knowledgable and entertaining. Pre-booking the tour was not necessary on the day we visited but probably busy during a busier tourist season.l
Fantastic tour of the Globe theatre. Our group was lucky enough to get to sit in on the dress rehersals - unforgettable experience. Definately a must for anyone visiting London.
Really interesting place to visit - good tour - right length. Want to go and see a play there now.
Excellent guide and exhibits. Give yourself lots of time to go through the exhibition before the tour. Top notch!
As a former English major, seeing Shakespeare's Globe Theater was at the top of my "to do" list while visiting London! The theater is beautiful, and the tour guide was very informative. I think I took nearly 100 photos of the theater alone! lol I was also extremely grateful that they let me use my ticket two days later than I'd originally booked it for. I highly recommend this excursion and will be using Viator for my future excursions.
This was absolutely fabulous. It was very easy to spend a half day here. The guided tour of the theatre was excellent and then you could stay as long as you liked to enjoy the museum. Don't miss this.
Wow what a neat looking open air theatre. Dress warm during winter months viewing. You are outside when touring the actual theatre. Great guides too. The shop was fun! Bought a mask. The hot mull wine was a nice welcome drink coming in from the cold. Very friendly people. The extra exhibits although few, were good. Stay long enough to watch them show what it takes for a women to get dressed. All the different elements are demonstrated. You can walk from the London Eye to numerous museums sites, and to the Globe theatre and back. Nice long walk along river bank. Entertainment along the way and food stops.
Excellent tour guide and I really felt like I was in a theater from Shakespeare's time.
This tour was very interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer a lot of questions. I was hoping we could of gone behind the stage to see how the conditions were like back then for the actors.
The displays and tour of the theatre were fabulous. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour / theatre come to life with his descriptions.
I included the option for afternoon tea which didn't go as well as expected. The ticket counter didn't know what to do with that portion of the voucher when I originally checked in and suggested my name would be on a list included at the restaurant. They didn't give me the name, which would have helped, and the friends of the theatre information desk didn't know anything about it either. I finally found the correct place only to be told that I would have to go back to the theatre and get a voucher for the meal. Thankfully another worker decided to accompany me to get this sorted out instead of just sending me away. The ticket counter didn't have any vouchers for the day, no list of bookings from Viator and had general confusion. After many conversations to many people it was sorted and they were able to squeeze me in to the bookings for the afternoon. The Swan restaurant hold a time slot for each booking made. That was interesting considering I was the only person in the room while I had tea other than a couple that was checking out the room for a potential booking and the staff that were discussing new drinks / menu items for the week. Food was excellent, but an awkward experience.
Interesting tour. Fortunately we went early in the morning and took the 10:30 tour because the theatre closed for rehearsal at 11am. They don't necessarily tell you this when you book.
