Salvatore is very knowledgeable. His insight on British history and the Protestant reformation was very helpful to understand Westminster Abbey.. I plan to recommend him to other visitors who plan to visit London.

Hi Gavin, apologies for the very late response on this. I am so sorry there was an issue with your tour. The impact of sudden COVID-related changes in September caused us unprecedented issues. Please reach out to our customer care team so we can resolve this to your satisfaction. We are rebuilding our teams and look forward to being able to server our clients again and would love to make this up to you,
Rich rich history

Loved the tour. Nick was very engaging. With all the political, religious, and architectural history associated with these two buildings I could have spent 4 hours in each.

My husband and I visited London for the first time and were thrilled to have a guided tour of Westminster Abbey and both Houses of Parliament. Both guides took their time and thoroughly explained the history and answered all questions. This excursion was worth it!

An excellent glimpse of British history and politics
, May 2019
For an in depth look into the "behind the scenes" of British politics past and present, this tour manages to provide a wealth of information. First stop was Westminster Abbey, truly a sight to behold. As you walk around you will the see the grave markings of many notable people buried there, like Issac Newton (who has a monumental statue), Charles Dickens, Geoffrey Chaucer, and Charles Darwin. British monarchs are also buried there, most notably Edward the Confessor, who eventually became a saint. Speaking of monarchs, King Edward's chair (aka the Coronation chair) is also on the display. The architecture is also outstanding note, check out the pendant fan vault ceiling in the Henry VII chapel. The second part of the tour focused on the House of Parliament, the place where British legislation is conducted. It is an informative look at the inside of the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and the Sovereign branches. All in all, this tour was fascinating, I would highly recommend it.
