A very rainy day, but we found the self guided audio excellent, and the tour took the time suggested.

The Tower of London is fantastic. Being able to show our voucher at the group ticket window was a great timesaver. Be sure to go at 9 AM when it opens, and go straight to the Crown Jewels and then the White Tower, as those areas get more crowded with lines to get in later in the day. We spent four or five hours there.
This was the second time inside the Tower, and still loved it!
Second time on this tour, and loved it again! Best way to beat the lines and get some background of the tower.
The Tower was a great attraction. The advanced tickets allowed us to go right in. We did the crown jewels first, and then every high else. We spent the whole day and had a lovely time.
Short line at group tickets window to get our tickets, hooked up right away with a Beefeater tour guide, all was great!
As all the guidebooks will tell you, it is worth spending a day here and walking around the entire site. You still will not see everything in one visit. The Beefeater tour never disappoints and is highly informative. Worth every penny and more. Truly a bargain and would do again the next time I'm in London. Never gets old.
Being able to pick up our tickets at the group tour booths saved SO much time! We were able to line up to see the Crown Jewels with only a 15 minute wait!!
John was our Beefeater / Yeoman Warder. He managed a huge group and was very entertaining. Cracking jokes along the way, he also had very detailed knowledge that made the tour hugely interesting. It was great.
Absolutely loved this tour. Our tour guide was wonderful, filling us in on all of the gory history as well as the more current history of this amazing historical landmark. Unfortunately it rained but that didn't stop us from enjoying the crown jewels and the other museums of artifacts there. We highly recommend this tour.
This was a very enjoyable activity. Purchasing this tour allowed us to skip the line and pick up our tickets at the Group window. Very, very easy. We joined the Beefeater tour and had the distinction of being our Beefeaters very first tour group - you would have never known it as he was very knowledgeable and handled the group well.
Loved it! The actors playing the parts of the historical folk and the Beefeaters were just great. Couldn't have enjoyed it more :
We spent the entire day visiting the Tower of London and still didn't have enough time to see and enjoy everything there. We liked not having to stand in a long queue to get into the grounds.
When you are in a city as full of history as London, you do not want to queue in long lines to enter. We really enjoyed the Tower and all of the exhibits.
Phenomenal experience. Lots to see and do. I would highly recommend the Beefeater guided tour. Very interesting and entertaining. If you want to see the Crown Jewels, prepare for a wait - lines are long.
We loved this tour although we decided not to participate in the free Beefeater Tour as it was very busy, a large crowd which made it difficult to hear the gentleman. We did purchase the audio guide and made good use of that. It is a fascinating building with loads of history and great views of Tower Bridge as well. Give yourself a good 3-4 hours to really explore the place.
Wonderful guide and wonderful experience. Thank you, we like Viator!
