Fantastic option to see more of the guard and horse guard changing than one could have expected. Guide Katie was awesome!

Interesting but misleading...

Guide was knowledgeable, but we never saw a changing of the guard. We saw one set of guards leave one area and then marched to a different place to see the other set of guards leave. Then went to Muse to see the horse guards on station. Then we traipsed to Westminster Dome climb. All was done in a quick march. Not once did we see a changing of the guards. It was disappointing as we got to Victoria's Memorial in enough time to get a good spot to see the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. You can say we went all the way, paid Viator a fee to see the changing and didn't get to see it.

Dear Nomad53777498650, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We are sorry to hear that you felt very underwhelmed by the changing of the guards' experience. The event you described where one set of guards leave one area to go to another is the ceremonial changing of the guards. We apologize that your guide didn't explain this better and will make sure future guests have a better understanding of what the changing of the guards looks like on this tour. We hope the rest of your time in London was enjoyable and if you have any other questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us at info@takewalks.com. All the best, The Walks Team
