We did this tour on May 17, 2022 and I cannot remember the name of our tour guide but he was a very pleasant, friendly man with a lot of great information to share. The Crown Jewels are amazing and the husband really enjoyed the engine room. And one of the best parts of this tour is it is early so you beat the crowds. Highly recommend!

Early Access to Tower of London and crown jewels

A fun experience well worth getting up early for. Rob was a great guide and was well versed on the history of the Tower. He kept the history interesting with fun stories and kept the tour moving. There is a good deal of walking involved but there are opportunities to sit along the way. The opening ceremony is fairly brief but the opportunity to get into the Tower ahead of the general public gets you in to see the crown jewels and other sites before they get crowded.

Opening time was a great time to visit the tower. We got to enjoy the opening ceremony and get to the crown jewels before the crowds. The guide was knowledgeable and pleasant and our group was small enough that we could enjoy. Climbing tower bridge was a new experience for me, despite many trips to London. It was my son's favorite activity in the city. Great views and exciting.

It rained throughout the tour. Even though it was pouring the tour guide had us standing outside in the rain. No fun!!

Hi Ralph, Thank you for your review. As you know Ireland is a country where we enjoy four seasons in one day, some say in one hour. As mentioned in our tour literature and from Tourism Ireland Tips for Visitors we recommend that all our guests come prepared for all types of weather especially the rain. As our city is small and of Viking origin we have battled with invaders and with the weather for centuries. The rain is an aspect of our beautiful country that you grow to appreciate hence our extraordinary "40 shades of Ireland" national slogan. I'm sorry you didn't like the rain but we are delighted to hear that you loved the tour content and the guide. Best Regards, Ciaran C
