This was amazing! This was the one tour that gives you the full taste of London's history. Our tour guide Gavinnot Kevin, haha was the one of the top highlights of our entire stay in London. We did this tour our second day and Gavin was very helpful in answering all our questions that we had for the rest of our trip! We were the only ones going for tea in the afternoon so he tailored the afternoon tour to some of the things we were interested in. HE WAS AWESOME!! We will definitely want to see him again if we come back to London! Thanks Gavin!! You rock! The Altons

This two-part tour was really fun and interesting. You are the only people allowed inside the Tower of London for the morning opening ceremony, which gives you quick and easy access to the Crown Jewels viewing area before everyone else. Our tour guide was fun and lively and gave us lots of interesting facts. We packed a lot into the morning, then had a two hour break for lunch, and then met up again for the afternoon. The tea at the end of the tour was amazing, filled with food and a great chance to chat with the other members of the tour in a lovely hotel. All in all, a wonderful tour and well worth it!

This tour turned out to be one of the best we had during our Amsterdam / London trip. Robert was a wealth of knowledge and it did help that our family was the only one who showed up for the tour. We had the privilege of seeing the opening of the Tower of London up close. Even lunch break was excellent that Robert gave us enough time to enjoy it. The afternoon tea was also a nice touch not to mention that it was the last stop of the tour and it was where we were staying. Just had to go up to our room after conclusion of the tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

I was lucky enough to have the most knowledgeable tour leader in Phil, who described the history of sites so well, making the tour very interesting. It was an average paced and well organised walk, suitable for all ages. The group numbers were not large, so one could easily take in all that was said. There was a break at lunch time, before continuing on to encompass yet more sights, ending with a delightful high tea at St Ermin's Hotel - very classy. I would recommend this tour, and particularly this guide, to anyone wanting to enjoy the highlights of London in a day.
