The instructions to find the starting point were clear and with a map we found it easily. The young lady who took the tour sorry can't remember her name was lovely and informative. Buckingham palace was terrific. We have been to a number of palaces over the years but really all of them are museums. Buckingham palace is where people work and live and it gave a more vibrant feel. The displays of the gifts to the Queen made the walk through the palace far more interesting than just viewing the rooms. A little rushed looking through the gift shop but we then walked through the gardens lovely to our high tea. Sitting at the table we met two ladies from the USA and had a great chat whilst enjoying the delicacies presented. In all a fun, informative and delicious after.

Great tour that was well worth the price. I was so lucky to have arranged tour for the date that I did, not even knowing that it was the last day of the 8 weeks of the year that it was open!!! Enjoyed seeing some of the gifts that other heads of states and dignitaries have given the Queen. Was a tour I will never forget!!! And the high tea afterwards was also great fun sat with a couple from Scotland and another couple from England, so enjoyed having tea with locals! The hotel is beautiful and made it a great experience. Wonderful tour and tea...I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

Tour with Amber from City Tours! A must go attraction to all visitors of London! I mean come on you get to see 19 out 755 rooms of the palace where the Queen resides!!! On top of that we got a very interactive, funny, witty and lovely guide in Amber! Tour lasts about 3.5 hours and you can stay and hang out after enjoying ur tea with other tourists. If you are lucky enough like we were, our fellow tour members were amazing, we spent 1.5 hours exchanging info and talking about our experiences.

Great end to a fabulous vacation. So special to tour Buckingham Palace which is rich with history and open on a limited basis. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Afternoon tea was very chic and so British.
