This was a great tour! Getting to the Tower first thing in the morning is the way to go. Five stars to our guide, Gavin. He was very personable and knowledgeable and kept the group on schedule. He made sure we made the best of the four hours.

Awesome tour. Our original tour guide spoke too softly at times to understand her. However, another Viator guide was adjacent to ours so we switched to her and she was amazing. Her name was Amber and we enjoyed her very much. Fortunately, we figured how to change to her channel on the 10 minute Thames boat ride.

Guide was VERY knowledgable about so many things...especially Buckingham Palace and the Royal Family. She told many good stories and really made the tour a lot of fun!

What a fantastic tour! Seeing the Tower of London before the crowds arrive is an amazing experience. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and our walking tour was top notch. His timing was perfect and we were able to see an incredible amount of key highlights during this portion of the tour. He knew where to position us for great views of the changing of the horse guard as well as the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. I highly recommend this tour!

At busy times, early access to Tower of London would be a must. Not too busy at this time. Our tour guide was wonderful, telling us exactly where to stand for the best photo opportunities. Good way to see a large amount of London in 1/2 a day

Must see!!!! We were a part of an old tradition that no one else waiting outside could see. Got to take our time seeing the jewels since we were the first let into the castle. Wish we had a little more time to check out the grounds. every penny!!!

Very good tour. We didn't get to see the changing of the guard due to circumstances beyond our guides control, but she took us to see the palace guards on horses. We also got early access to the Jewels of England and saw the opening of the gate of the Tower of London. We also took a boat on the Thames to get from Tower of London to Buckingham Palace. I would highly recommend.

Joyful guide Karren with loads of information. There is also a boat cruise which is fast and fun. The Crown Jewels will take ur breathe away, but you wont have much time to see the rest of the adjacent towers though which was disappointing. The morning slot surely beats all the queues, so this is certainly a big plus in summer vacation season! Seeing both the horse guard change and Buckingham Palace guard change is magical. The only comment I would add is that since we did this tour after many others, some stuff were repetitive of course, but it was still enjoyed it a lot and it was defiantly informarive, would advise to do it for sure.

This was a great tour and well worth the money. We started with early access to the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels. Next we took a short cruise on the Thames river and got off to see Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. From there we went to the horse changing of the Guard and walked from there to Buckingham Palace. Phil was a great tour guide and made sure we were able to get in to see the Horse Changing of the Guard and then to Buckingham Palace to see the Horse Guard arriving.

I enjoyed this tour very much. The guide was informative- she knew her stuff, took time showing each of the sites and made the day enjoyable. At the tower, she made sure we knew where to stand for the ideal view and told us where to look first so we would see the crown jewels and beat the crowds. She was very attentive. We had one person that had difficulty walking so without drawing attention she would slow the group to allow for everyone to catch up before proceeding. How thoughtful! While visiting the horse guards she proved to be a pro! She told us where to stand to get the BEST pictures and moved us along quickly so we were ready for the next BEST picture. Our guide even took time to use our camera and snap photographs of us in front of each major site. We had plenty of time to take it all in too. I would highly recommend. Wonderful experience.

This tour was the highlight of our trip!!!! Incredible history and the early access allows you to immerse yourself in the sights of the Tower of London before it gets too crowded. The boat ride provided us with an opportunity for our guide to give us an impressive architectural overview of many of the buildings and bridges. Throughout the tour our guide, Alexandria-equal parts informative and entertaining, provided us with cool, quirky stories of the history of our sights. Loved it!!

Early access to the crown jewels worth the ticket cost. Our guide added a lot of insight to the events of the times.

Lovely chap in Nathan who gave us a lot of information. Great to see the Crown Jewels without the crowds. Please listen to the guide as not being in the right spot at the right time holds everyone up. Would recommend for first timers to London.

Yet another amazing tour. Our tour guide, Phil, did a great job with this tour. Very informative. He knew exactly where to stand for the changing of the guard and transferring amongst multiple locations. He kept us right on track and was relaxed throughout the tour. Our family LOVED it.

Tour day was June 30, 2017 with Gavin. There were 6 of us in our family and probably 15 people in the entire group. We met at Tower of London about 8:15 AM - the yeoman came out opened the castle and gave us all pertinent historical info about the opening ceremony in a very funny and charming presentation. We were at the tower about another hour during which time we toured the crown jewels which is a must see. There is also some time to look around and explore other parts of the tower. We cruised on the Thames 10-15 min and then stopped to view a royal changing ceremony on our way to Buckingham Palace 30 minutes - during that time Gavin spoke about the things we saw during the river trip and walk to the palace historical and factual with wit and humor - never boring - he is warm and funny and knowledgable. At Buckingham he knew exactly where to stand to see the changing of the guards. Gavin clues you into all the info about the uniforms, flags, colors and what they signify. - I recommend - all husband, sister, me and my 3 teen daughters loved it you can see the Tower and crown jewels with no line - and get to see the changing coming right toward you - doubt you could get this space on your own unless you stand there a few hours ahead of time - we took our places and guard came out 5 minutes later! - Gavin's a great tour guide, he snapped some memorable pics for us too - also we were blessed with a sunny day and great weather. Thanks Viator and Gavin!!
