We went in September specifically so we could tour Buckingham Palace while the Queen was in her summer home.
It was truly amazing. There were many of Queen Elizabeth's dresses - all of which were very beautiful - some from 1950's.
Also had an assortment of hats. Pictures not allowed in the Palace. Also displayed china from different eras. Afternoon Tea was perfect in a hotel nearby
Loved this tour.. it was a dream come true, and the tea. Gavin was excellent, we missed him before we tipped him.. so happy we later saw him walking down the street, and able to give him well deserved tip.
Loved the Palace. Tea and cakes were delicious. Would do it all over again!
Great opportunity to see the State rooms not enough time so much to absorb tea was wonderful had a great time
It was wonderful and I liked our guide a lot - very informative and friendly. The tea at Rubens was
very nice and I liked the lesson on etiquette

Went to Buckingham palace and was wonderful.Great tour of the palace inside.Then lovely high tea after.Queen was away on holiday.Dad and I went to London museum first for two hours.Then walked through beautiful park.xxx
Fun little tour. Josh was fantastic and we were happy to have had him on another tour. The palace rooms were very opulent. Extremely crowded touring the Queen's suits and hats. I can understand the opportunity to go inside the palace and the limited amount of time the queen is away.
Great tour of Buckhingham Palace. I loved the afternoon tea at the Rubens hotel afterward. Food was great.
Delightful tour guide-Danielle from citywalk, enjoyed the freedom of walking through the palace at my own pace. Afternoon tea was not the best we've had in London but good experience.
The Palace was amazing and the best part was the tea afterwards...
The Palace was packed but they moved us through quickly. The Afternoon Tea was superb.
The tour was great. I originally booked the Changing of the Guard and Buckingham Palace but when we reached Buckingham Palace we couldn't find the location to meet up with the tour, it was very difficult to find, we asked so many people that worked there and no one knew. But I'm glad that I was able to call and change the tour to include the Afternoon Tea and I'm very glad I did, the Afternoon Tea was very nice. Our tour guide Georgia was excellent, she even helped us book the Bath and Stonehinge tour and Georgia was our tour guide again. She is excellent, she really knows her history. Very lovely person.
It was a lovely experience to be able to go into Buckingham Palace and then to have an afternoon tea. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I highly recommend this our if you have visiting London!

This was a wonderful tour! From the minute we met our guide to the end of our tea, we had a marvelous time. The stories our guide shared and the history in which we engaged were amazing. It was a wonderful afternoon, one that I would definitely repeat in the future.
The palace tour was fantastic. Our tour guide was great and made tea very interesting by explaining the peculiarities of English etiquette when it comes to afternoon tea. It also happened to be delicious and was a nice way to relax after walking around the palace. The guides were also most understanding and helpful when we showed up a few minutes late because of an error we made in reading the directions.
We were greeted by Augusta who assured of a most delightful tour of the Queen's magnificent home plus a most sumptuous high tea at elegant Reuben's Hotel
Was a wonderful experience. We did high tea and our guide Agusta was wonderful. Very knowledgable about all thing 'Royal' and gave us lots of get information!! Would highly recommend this tour.
Everything went smoothly with this tour. Buckingham Palace is gorgeous and opulent--well worth seeing. The tea afterwards at a nearby hotel was very good and a nice chance to relax after the busy tour of the palace. The audio guides at the palace are excellent--easy to work and with lots of options of information to listen to. It was great to pre-buy tickets and not have to wait in line.
Our guide was there early to meet us.....told us what we needed to do...flawless...and at the Tea he was very informative ...his name was Michael..told some very good and funny stories..very entertaining . The Tea was splendid . The best sandwiches send scones ever! Well with it!
A not-to-be missed summer event! Everything you've always wanted to know about Buckingham Palace is clearly explained. The tea spread was really good.
Wonderful guide, great place to see after so many years, lovely afternoon tea. Would recommend.
Outstanding! Couldn't have been better. Small group. Smart and engaging guide, Kieran. Wonderful high tea close by and we seriously thought we would skip this part - so glad Kieran convinced us otherwise. Even our 13 year old son loved this tour including High Tea. Great access to the palace and best guide. Thank you, Kieran!
