Our guide was excellent! Trudy knew all about the history and architecture of the Tower, and pointed out features that we would have missed. With just the three of us, we were able to move around quickly and avoid the big groups. Seeing the crown jewels early in the morning before the crowds was a plus. We can highly recommend the private tour with Trudy!

What great and educational time with Gina on our tour of the Tower of London. Gina was so attentive to our questions and itinerary. Gave us options and recommendations on what was of interest to us and then proceeded to amaze us with her knowledge and stories. You can tell her love of history and it comes across in her tour. If you can request Gina, I would do that in a heartbeat.
