Meet your art-historian guide outside the Tower of London, which was built in 1067 by William the Conqueror and has taken the guise of a royal palace, armory, royal mint and prison over the centuries.
Head inside with your included ticket and explore the Tower’s highlights, which include the Jewel House where the glistening Crown Jewels are kept, the White Tower and the Chapel of St John. Snap photos of the Yeomen Warden, better known as the Beefeater Guards; see the Tower Green where traitors and monarchs — including Anne Boleyn — were executed; and learn about the Tower’s long, colorful past from your private guide’s insightful commentary.
After, continue to the nearby Tower Bridge, which was built near the Tower in the late 19th century. From the top of the bridge’s towers, you’ll have a wonderful panoramic view of London, all the way from the Thames River below you to Greenwich and Canary Wharf.
The commentary on this private tour can be tailored to your interests. Please list any special interests, from art to history to architecture, at the time of booking so your guide can best prepare.

Tour guide was late, then had to wait in line to get tickets!! Spent 30 minutes outside the Tower of London talking about the walls while This was a terrible tour, waste of money. She was 10 minutes late, and then she still had to wait in line to get tickets. We stood outside the Tower of London as she told us about the walls while thousand of others went in ahead of us. We entered just after 11 tour was to start at 10 am. Line was very long to the crown jewels so she suggested that we skip it. Later the line was longer, so we never sat the jewels!
Rest of tour was poor to average. She had very low energy. She wasn't able to make the tour interesting. I have been to the Tower before and the audio tour was much better.
She ended the tour at 1PM, 30 minutes early. She didn't take us to the Tower bridge.

Anthony was our tour guide for the day- and he did an exceptional job informing me and my husband the ins and outs of the tower and the bridge. Anthony stated was retired and this was what he did to get out of the house a few days a week. Not a bad choice indeed.
The tour was 4 hours long and all of it was on your feet...and up windy staircases and on unleveled pavement and cobblestone...so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and always be prepared for rain. The weather changes so quickly in London, just always travel with an umbrella or rain jacket. You never know when the weather will change.
One thing I was hoping because we were with a private guide...was that we could avoid waiting in the long lines. Nope. We had to stand in line with everyone else. The only benefit with the private guide was that you got extra information about some of the exhibits. Our guide did a nice job...but I don't think it would be any different than if you did it on your own.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and full of energy. We toured the grounds and the Tower and saw the Crown Jewels, of course. We also walked across the Tower Bridge.
