This was a wonderful experience. Well worth the investment. I would absolutely do it again.
Highly recommend this tour - we were able to see the Opening Key Ceremony which was quite unique and avoid the crowds at the Tower of London. Then, on to the Thames Cruise with our tour guide Phil providing great insights to the sights around us. Then, as we disembarked the cruise, and began walking through London, he provide wonderful insights and managed to share with us many elements of the Changing of the Guard, not just a single station. It was wonderful! I would highly recommend!
Great tour and guide. We enjoyed the key ceremony at the Tower of London which would no not been possible without the great planning of Viator and our guide.
Very informative and loved watching the Yeoman. Would highly recommend the early entry to avoid the lines viewing the crown jewels. We were up close and personal for the changing of the guards. Josh our guide was fantastic!
The departure time on this tour in the summer is 8:15 AM so do not be late. Our group of 4 was late due to the delays on the London Underground so we missed this tour. However, the tour company City Wonders was very helpful and rescheduled us on another tour London Highlights Walking Tour with Afternoon Tea for later that day. As for the Tower of London, we bought our tickets and did the normal tour with the Beefeaters. It was a lot of fun. The replacement afternoon tour turned out to be a very pleasant surprise and our group really enjoyed the afternoon tea experience. The most important point is that the Viator/City Wonders companies turned what was initially a big disappointment into a great day. This is why we always use Viator.
Getting into the Tower of London early was fantastic. We were literally the first ones in there. Our time there was rushed though and another 1/2 hour or so would have made it perfect. We had to zip out of there to catch a boat ride to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard. Very efficient use of our time and great sites. Fast paced tour - may be difficult for slower people.
this tour takes you to the perfect viewing spots for the ceremonial portions of the tour at precisely the correct moment. Early admisssion into the tower of London was a refreshing break from the crowded lines and streets of London. Our guide was a talented story teller and was able to fill the morning with rich history and inside scoops. This is definitely a tour that is worthwhile.
Josh was great!
We loved the tour. It was a real thrill to be let into the Tower of London early to see the opening of the tower ceremony. Danielle was fabulous -- extremely knowledgeable, cheery and funny.
A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. THE GUIDE JOSH WAS THE GREATEST. THE TIMING OF EVERYTHING WAS JUST PERFECT.
