Jason was interesting and informative. The tour managed to give us a glimpse of the changing of the guard (both infantry and cavalry) at Buckingham Palace and The Horse Guards. Unfortunately it was very cold and wet, so I think the children would have preferred a slightly shorter tour- but that wasn’t the guide’s fault!

Super guide, imparted a lot of knowledge with a lot of passion and a wink. Just great! But be careful: the 4 hours are wrong! The tour was an entertaining 3 hours, but the tower was a separate visit, which began an hour after the end of the tour and itself lasted at least 1.5 hours. That's 5.5 hours!! It broke up our daily schedule, unfortunately we couldn't fully enjoy the tower. A better description would be helpful here!

It was so fun to see so many sites on a walking tour that didn’t feel like a long walk. We were taking a wheelchair plus a 9 year old and we were fine. Our guide, Christopher, was awesome. Afterwards, we were given our tickets to the Tower of London, which was also fantastic. Find the Yeoman Warder and learn soooo much as he teaches about the history of the Tower. Absolutely recommend.
