Ian was a fantastic tour guide - he had great historical knowledge and stories, and prioritized getting our group to the best possible locations to view the changing of the guard and other crowded areas. He was great about accommodating everyone’s needs. Absolutely a great way to get an introduction to London.

Very nice outdoor activity between the great History and the small stories of palaces. The sun was with us ☺️ Thanks to Mickael who took us to the beat and shared his passion with us.

Raf was an excellent guide. Didn’t get to see the changing of the guards due to weather. None the less it was still a good tour with lots of knowledge.

Brandon, the guide was just great. Told us a lot and went the extra mile with us. Finally, a pub recommendation that is worth 1,000 points. ☆☆☆☆☆

Excellent tour. Was exactly what I was looking for in a history tour of Bath.
