Booking this tour was the best thing we could have done, if we hadn’t we would’ve missed so much with changing of the guard. Alan is an incredible guide with a wealth of knowledge and experience! We were able to be see the entire process from beginning to end at multiple locations as well as getting a chance to be close to the guards. I loved that we learned more than just about the changing of the guard and got to see places I wasn’t expecting to see. Thank you so much Alan!!

Christopher was such an amazing tour guide and I am so grateful that I added this tour on to my trip! He had a lot of great information that he tailored to the group and kept us laughing the entire time. He knew all the best viewing spots for the changing of the guards and we were one step ahead of all the other tourists. If you are coming to London you have to take this tour, kudos again to Christopher!

Wonderful fun tour. Hannah was very professional and organised, making the walk very enjoyable. Taking 2 stops by boat is also lovely and let's you sit and relax for few minutes.

really great and fun this walking tour! great way to get to see the city and also about Harry Potter curiosities
