We thought this was the best tour we did all week. Saw the opening of the tower, had a great tour guide and the Tower Bridge was awesome!!
This tour was amazing and it's all because our tour guide Anne Marie was so kind and informative. We expected to meet a larger group of tour guests at the tube station, however it was just us, which was nice. We had a private key ceremony inside the tower and then we were able to enter before everyone else to see the crown jewels. After that, we walked over to the bridge and the tour ended on a high note. This was one of our favorite tours and I highly recommend it.
Although the meeting time and location were a little confusing, the tour itself was absolutely AMAZING. Our tour guide was polite, well-informed and allowed our group ample time to explore all sites. We highly recommend this tour.
Our guide Anna Marie was wonderful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It was also great to see the opening ceremony and to have such early access to view the Tower and the crown jewels.
So glad we booked this tour! We had a fantastic time on this fun and informative morning. Wish we could have spent the entire day with Alex our guide. He was very engaging and knowledgeable.

We toured the interesting place of Tower of London and saw what is supposed to be seen by tourists. Besides, we had the opportunity to see the changing guards that takes place in the morning thanks to our guide.
Great Tour with Anna Maria. Got a very enjoyable tour of the Tower, with lots of history thrown in for my Tudor era loving wife. The Bridge was very nice, with her explaining about it's history. She told us about a nice area to eat right by the bridge, as well as where to catch the Thames River Cruise near by.
The tour starts early in the morning, so being the first group of visitor gaves the
The Tower of London sight goes without saying. Absolutely fabulous and so much to see. I love British history so I could not wait to go on this tour. The Beefeaters are wonderful. They are full of insightful knowledge and just so funny. The Tower of London gets very crowded, so if you are not one for queueing up for hours, this is definitely the right tour to take. It is worth the extra money as we were in at 8:30am before it opened to the public. In addition, we were able to watch the Ceremony of the Keys. We were able to go right through all the main exhibits such as the Crown Jewels, the Bloody Tower, Wakefield Tower, White Tower, etc without queueing up. The only fallback was our tour guide. She was quite nice, but was not a subject matter expert. She did not give us any information or details that you could not find in a guide book. No offense, but if I am going to England and touring one of their most treasured palaces, I think a native British tour guide who actually knows the history would be more appropriate.
For the price, I would not recommend this tour. You are basically paying for viewing of the opening key ceremony, and early entry into viewing the crown jewels, which on the day we went, it would have been fine to go on our own as minimal line to view jewels, if you go first thing in the AM. We have gone on 2 previous tours in different cities through viator and have had a terrific experience, but the tower of london tour was very disappointing. Not worth the value. So much depends on your tour guide,and our tour guide was very nice, but basically provided the same info that you can read on the placards on your own. The other tours that we had been on, kept our 2 teenagers and myself engaged and we enjoying trivia and anecdotal stories. On this tour didn't hear any. It would have been much better if we had used out London pass for entry and received the audio tour. We were jealous of the those with headphones. Again, extremely disappointing. In Paris our viator tour was one of our highlights of our trip...for tower of london it was not, and felt like a waste of money.
