It was nice to see The Tower of London opening ceremony. Early access allowed us a better view of the Crown Jewels and the viewing of the Tower. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of it's rich history.

Highly recommended. Our guide Guy knows his stuff. Loved going in before the crowds and seeing the key ceremony. I would definitely do this tour if you want to get into the Tower, see it all and hear all the juicy stories.

Tour Guide a NO SHOW
Catherine_M
, Mar 2020
I am only giving this 3 stars because of the customer service was very good. I have used Viator quite a bit and have been very happy with the service until this reservation. I arrived 25 minutes prior to the departure time and no tour guide showed. I checked every group around and even one group also tried to help me. Thank goodness Viator did have the tour guide (Walks - UK) number on the reservation. When I called them and gave them my Booking Reference number I was told they did not have a reservation for me AND they had cancelled the morning tour because not enough people had signed up. I called Viator when I got home and will be refunded the full amount. I will continue to use Viator because they do great tours. Now...I ended up buying an individual ticket plus the extra 5 pounds for an audio tour and did the tour myself. I was one of the first to arrive and went directly to the Crown Jewels first. I ended up saving over $50 by purchasing my own tickets. Lesson learned. In some months (like March) save yourself some money and book your own tickets and get the audio tours. They are great. I did the same thing with the Windsor Castle tour (and took the train - super easy)! And...I also used FREE TOURS from Strawberry tours which were GREAT and just give tip to the tour guide.

Dear Catherine, Thank you for taking a moment to review your experience with us. We are terribly sorry to hear of the confusion that occurred on the day of your tour. While it does not happen often, it is unfortunate that occasionally bookings from 3rd party distributors don't make their way to our system, and it seems that this is just what happened to your reservation. We deeply apologize for this inconvenience, as this is not the memory that we want to leave any of our guests with. We are glad to hear that you still enjoyed your time in London despite this situation! Travel and world exploration are such special moments of life and we hope that one day, we will get to share one of our experiences with you as it is meant to be had. All the best, The Walks Team

A Great Experience

This experience was great! We had a small group of only six people plus the guide and another guide along that was new. Alex, our guy, was very knowledgeable, I’m using, and had some great stories about the goings-on at the Tower of London. It was really a pleasure to have him as our guide and he made the tour worthwhile.

This was a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable. It's worth doing the early access so that you can see the opening ceremony as well as seeing the jewels before the crowds get there. Since you're not allowed to take photographs in the Crown Jewel area, it's nice to be able take your time and look closely. By the time we left, the lines to get in were already across the courtyard.

Excellent Tour Through the Tower's History
Jeff S
, Dec 2019
It's an early start to the day, but let's you get though everything before the Tower gets too crowded. Our tour guide was funny, informative, and knowledgeable. We were also given enough time to wander on our own throughout the tour so you never feel like you missed something. If you're a fan of history or even just have a passing interest, I highly suggest this tour.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2019
Thank you for your recommendation! We couldn't agree more, this tour is excellent for any lover of history or those who want to explore a piece of it. We're glad that you enjoyed it and hope the rest of your visit to London was a good one!
